    Replacing 08 Lower Grill

    On a 2008 bumper will a 2008 lower grill platinum edition fit just as the black lower grill ?

    In other words are they the same size and are they interchangeable with one another?

    I would imagine they are the same dimensions and are interchangeable...It was just a different color AFAIK...Someone else can chime in and confirm so don't take my word for it

    I asked my dealer this exact question for my 2013 EXT. The parts guy printed up the parts diagram for both and they don't match up. Looks like a lot of parts are different. I'm currently looking for an aftermarket solution.

    Right but I could look at the escalade and tell you the platinum and regular grilles aren't interchangeable. In the STS case, they're the same dimensions. I would be willing to bet it would fit. No guarantees though.

    the pre 08 and 08+ bumpers are interchangeable i dont see the reason of making 2 bumper for the same year different.
