    Default Will a 02 Tahoe bumper and hood fit my 01 Suburban 2500

    I tried to beat the law of tonnage and lost. I ran my 2001 Suburban 2500 into the back of a dump truck. I damaged the bumper and hood bur everything else made out unscathed. I found a guy that is parting out a 2002 Tahoe and will sell me the hood and bumper for 100 dollars and I know a piant and body guy that owes me some money so I will barter the paint work out. Question is will the parts fit ?

    I got the parts and bought a grill for 25$ and I replaced them, I love working on GMs ! It looks good but the bumper is not straight and the passenger side parking lamp is broken. Here are the pics, after and before. I have a guy that is going to paint the hood for 200$. Any advice on straighting the bumper ?

    Did you get new brackets with that bumper, or did you reuse the existing ones when you installed it? I'd start by looking to see if your bumper brackets have any little bends in them as that is usually what causes a crooked bumper. If the brackets are all straight, your best bet would probably be to remove the plastic air deflector from the bottom of the bumper and use a jack to lift the low spots back into place. If you don't have a big enough jack, enkei's forklift suggestion also works (I used a bobcat to straighten the bumper on my F350)... you just have to be careful not to go too far with that method.
