    the 2011 grille will bolt right up to the 1500 truck, to make the trim on the hood work, its gonna take alot of work, if i had to do it over again, i would have just bought a 2500 hood

    Did you even look? Its the 10th one down...:flame:

    People give sarcasm when it seems obvious that you aren't even trying to help yourself and need everything given to you on a platter...

    Guess I don't see what is so confusing...just do some reading.

    If your not liking the price of the black bowties. I had a local decal shop cut me some custom decals that covered the front & back bowtie. I've only seen black bowties for sale & I wanted red & not up to painting right now. so the decal works for me & was only $10 front & back.

    i actually did search, idk where to search tho i went to cubs threads and looked thru like 7 pages and didmt see it so iasked again. i search how to remove nnbs bumper and couldnt find a clear enough answer that i was looking for. Thats when your supposed to ask for help right?! and im confused about all this shit because i keep buying things that are supposed to fit right up and when they get here they dont. CUB has helped me out for the most part but when i ask a couple moe simole questions i get assholes like you that wanna criticize

    Well apparently reading>you since if you would even looked at the 43 page thread on this the title ALONE says 2011 HD Front End Swap.......and then within the first two pages it says that 2011 HD Grill and Hood are a direct swap- it says nothing about the previous year HD parts fitting...A few minutes reading the thread I think would have given you everything you need to know, since just about every question was asked throughout it. The part numbers are all there on the 1st post, guess I don't understand what is so confusing and difficult about it..:think:

    What parts do you keep buying that don't fit? Obviously if you are trying to Frankenstein older 07-10 HD parts on a 1500 you are going to run into issues unless you swap everything over at once.

    So to make it crystal clear once again- You need the 2011 HD Grill for your 2007.5-2011 1500 truck. It will 'bolt' right in. The 2011 HD Bumper will work, but it needs modification to the brackets. You can't put the '11 bumper on your truck without the '11 grill. The 2011 HD Hood will also bolt up and is the recommended hood to avoid headaches with the hood trim piece. The hood trim piece can be installed on the 1500 hood, but needs holes drilled to fit the most secure, and even then fitment/appearance is still poor at best from what I have....read.
