sounds exactly like the same thing im looking at man! i too want to do a 03+ silvy clip. as mentioned, you do have to cut the frame horns and weld new ones on for the 03+ front end. as far as the 03+ GMC grille shell, it simply pops in place of the old one. at the moment, im running the 03+ shell with my 99-02 bumper.

for the most part...i believe it is basically when the body style of the vehicle changed all the front end hard parts changed. ex. 99-02 and 03-05 possibly 06 sierrras have different bumper mounts and shit

the bolt on ones suck though, I had bought them after I rearended some girl in the rain last year and they made the bumper too low and didn't allow it to sit level since they can only be installed in one position (due to the frame being convoluted in the middle). However, the upside is once I moved to do my HD convo and lower the bumper all I had to do was unbolt them and cut the bolt mounts off with a plasma cutter and reweld them :bowtie:

with just nothing but a weld on frame horn though...u risk not having a straight bumber cause u reallly dont have a guide to go by..on my denali clip i bolted them on and then tacked around the hole thing and that seems to do the job pretty good
