My dad has a 1999 Chevy silvy. (non hd). We had a terrible hail storm so it damaged the exterior of the truck badly. But instead of putting everything back the same way, I would like to change the hood for an hd hood and the grille for and HD grille as well. Is this possible? Thanks.Charlie.

Here is a before and after pic of an HD Hood on my 02. The HD hood is also an 02. If you're looking for an 01-02 HD hood at a wrecker make sure the truck it came from has option code HVY.

Also have to cut here.


and the outer most brackets on the bumper that the J shaped support mounts to will need a hole drilled in them since the bumper is orginally higher so the bolt hole wont line up. Also its 1 1/4" which is what i lowered mine and it was perfect no gaps.

Then you get this :)
