    Default 2005-2006 grille/hood swap

    Ok so i have a singe cab silverado with ss rims, I wanna start transforming it in to a actual SS lookin truck with emblems, seats, fenders and bumpers. But i have noticed that the 2006 model SS looks so much more aggresive with the grille and the hood. I was wondering if i could get the 06 grille and the hood to fit on the 2005 model

    I recently considered a grill swap to an SS style but ended up staying with my tried and true stock instead using a billet insert. I believe incorporating the updated grill should not be an issue, as both the original 2003 style and redesigned version have the same mounting points.

    As for the hood, the more recent hood that featured a more bull-nose shape (higher from the grill) also shares all the same mounting points and catch so I wouldn't expect it to be a big deal.

    Take a look at LMC's catalog for parts and price out with them or the competition.

    Good Luck.
