I took the front bumper off my 2009 1500 and was ready to do the HD swap.
I read all about the Silverado swap and assumed (stupid, I know) the bumpers/brackets were the same...well they're not! So my 1500 bumper went back on.
I found one thread about having to cut the bracket on the actual bumper bracket and rewelding it. I have been searching and searching to see if there is a way to do the swap without welding. I have read different guys saying they "slotted" the 1500 brackets but i just dont see how that would work. There isnt much bracket left to slot.
I would like to keep my 1500 upper cap as well since i dont watn to do the HD grill.
Can someone help me out with a picture or even directions on how to slot the Sierra brackets?
