My 02 was stolen and stripped. Now the insurance said they are going to fix it and replace everything new. Got the truck over at the body shop and have seen a 08 front on an 04 and wanted to do the same. anyone know what i am about to get into? thanks

I have seen 07' kits for 02-06's in Sport Truck mags, don't think the 07' parts would just bolt on with the 07' being 3" wider.

i was thinking of doing that before i bought my 07, multiple shops told me 10k parts and install. Good luck.

I would buy a new one before putting 10k in an older style, you may have a resale problem down the road.

I would like to see a picture of this, or even photoshop. Sounds interesting. Remember I post pics of the Hummer with '02-'06 Escalade Front? It was FUGLY!

the thing is that my truck was stolen and stripped, and now the insurance company wants to fix it. so let them pick up the bill. the shop where the truck is at, said if can be done, they would do it.

I've never seen one done before. So you should do it and be the first. :thumbsup:

that's the point....but insurance is paying only so much. if it costs 10 grand to "fabricate" a 08 front end fit, that leaves 10K less for other repairs. how much to you want "fixed"? you could blow it all on a few appearance mods.

Those trucks are corny, just go back to OEM parts, but just go sick on other mods(paint color,Wheels, stereo, interior, exterior lighting, etc). That would look better to me than fronting a 07 front end on the older model.
