Default 06 to 02 front clip swap

So like the title says, at some point I want to swap the cat eye for the rounded front end. I know Iíll need the hood, fenders, grill and lights, bumper, and bumper brackets. Anything else besides that?

the plastic brackets that hold the headlights needs to change as well. you may find some things dont line up the same or bolt on the same on the inner fender when you do the swap but i dont think there is much to make it an issue.

Pretty sure the entire cooling stack and panel (having a damn brain fart on the actual name of the item) are different. Be way ahead with the entire thing off of a donor. Unless you just make the intercooler and such fit.

I don't know why you would go through all that trouble just to have a ugly chevy when you can have a sexy GMC.

Lol I like the gmc look too. May do that swap. Idk yet. Only thing that’d keep me from it is the gmc hood is wimpy. The 01-02 hood trimmed looks great but I don’t really have the ability to do that. Dozer, do you know if I still would need to raise the brackets to get rid of the bumper spacer?

I don’t mind the cat eye honestly. It’s the god awful bulky as hell bumper on the truck. I don’t use tow hooks. Thinking about swapping for a 1500 bumper. Smaller and less to cut for my big gay wheels. going for the half ton look. No flares. Roll pan. All that good stuff.

Do a SS bumper overlay.
