Nah it isnt my truck, but it is a beautiful truck though. I actually saw this on another chevy forum doing a HD conversion on a 08.
Few pics of the 08 with HD grill - Chevy Truck Forum | GMC Truck Forum - GmFullsize.com
It gives some good info. on what the guy did and part numbers for it. But IMO doing this will make you truck look 10x better, and I say no on a guard up front2002 Chevy Silverado & 1995 Ford Bronco

I think buying the Black bull bar would look good and color matching it would look good also. I plan on getting my tow mirrors painted for $120 at GM dealership by my buddys friend that works in the body shop that's hell of a deal. The mirrors look really good color matched to me since allot of people dont do it really. I already have my bull bar pretty much matched to my truck being it's gloss black.
The Hella lights are nice and the one's i want cost under $100 bucks for the pair with the Angel eye halo's in them http://www.autoanything.com/lights/69A1333A0A0.aspx here is a pic of them. I will just tint them with my vinyl and add halogen bulb's for maybe $40- $50 and they will look like one of a kind for under $200. I think if you color matched your exhaust tips on the truck if you have exhaust would look clean. I got powdercoated gloss black 3 1/2 by 18 inch tips that have the rolled edges for like $120 and love them. www.assuredautomotive.com is the site i believe them might could make you some custom ones if you wanted them to let you know.

i got a custom 3 inch y pipe back into a cherry bomb extreme that dumped right over the rear end with 4.5 inch tips. the tips come down in a angle i take a pic tom and post it fer ya to check it out. it looks mean when u drive up behind it or lookin across the parkn lot if ur far enought away to see half the diff cover.
and ill pro do a 2500 ft end with the gmc bumper and bottom valance with a bull bar thats color matched with black and white tow mirrors. i got a sick idea for em thatl make ya get a hard on son i believe haha.

Sav the money to put toward a 2500 conversion, that would look killer.

yeah thats what il end up doin over winter, when i put the truck up cause i prob wont have it out with snow and salt on the rd. prob pull the bed and do some cleanin up and paintin and under the hood, and do a 2011 or 12 2500 swap. on the ft end with custom painted tow mirrors. ima use a serria 2500 bumper and lower valance cause it aint got the tag place. so it will be cleaner. its gettin a bottom window stip in a week or so. waitin to get my truck taged in a Kentucky cause i got busted bad the other day.

Tow mirrors for sure!!!! That would make the biggest little difference if that makes any sense. It makes your front and rear stance look so much better. I say no on the grill bar too. If anything maybe a prerunner bar but I like the clean look myself. I also agree about saving up for the HD conversion!

Yeah i like the HD conversion too but i guess we got all different way's to make it like a 2500HD. The only reason i want do the grille as a 2500hd is because i'm getting a 1 piece black mesh grille with chrome rivets it's basically a RBP knockoff for $305 so damn good deal. My bumper pad's i plan on changing out with one's that have the fog lights and selling the old ones enough or half as much to get the new one's painted. Anyway i think that is hell of a idea for the truck! Would it be too much of a hassle to put a duramax 6.6 Liter turbo diesel into a 1500? I bet it would be a beast on the track.. DAAAMMMNN

yeah id do somethin like that too to the grill. and idk about a d max. id rather have a 408 stroker with a big pro charger.

Definitely color match the mirrors no doubt, and depending on what you use your truck for, one thing I think would look sick is getting a spare wheel and tire matched to your other four, and get a mount for in the bed for it, im wanting to do that to mine. Here's just a google pic of what im talking about.
