    yes your 1500 hood will work but the HD grille sticks out further than the 1500 grille, the trim piece on the HD hood covers the area that sticks out. whether you want to swap hoods or not is up to you and how much the grille sticking out bothers you. Oh and the aforementioned thread covers this several times, read it. :read:

    to take the grille off you do not have to remove the bumper. to take off the grille take off the plastic shroud, remove the 4 10mm bolts in the top of the grille and pull out the rest of the grill is held on by clips.
