I recently purchased a 99 escalade and love it. I want to upgrade the front to a 2001-04. I only found a little info in my search for this. I was wondering if anyone here has done this swap and if so how did it work out and whats the approx. cost on this. I seen a kit that suppossed to fit for like 3G's. But I was hoping for someones personal experience on this. Thanks

its alot of work. nothing will just bolt on. if you find a really good body shop it can look good though:

just found out that a company named NICOUR (http://www.nicour.com/nc/) has a kit to convert the OBS GM trucks to the NBS. i would think you could just add the OBS escalade fender flares and be done.

don't forget about the lower portions of the doors. they match the fender flares and the flares don't look right without them. i know, i've had them off my truck :helpless:

ya, but if you're converting a 99-00 to a 02+ you'd only have to add the flares since you'd already have the door mouldings, etc.
