2500 hood swap
 
stupid question, but is it possible to put a 4th gen 2500 hood on a 4th gen 1500. the aftermarket hoods generally work for both truck, so i think it would bolt up, not to mention the cab and fenders are the same. I wonder also if the grille would bolt up as well. just a thought... think it would be cool

i would like to do that as well but the 2500 grille lower section is lower and wider than the 1500 grille. so it wont fit.

You mean something like this?? You would have to do hood grille and bumper

Outlaw 03-11-2013 08:32 PM

That's a 2500 bumper too. Needs custom mounts to put on 1500 frame

I don't see why you need the bumper? could you trim the bottom of the grille

You could trim the grille but it wouldn't look right.

I agree might as well do it all and do it right

+1 It would look ridiculous if you just cut the grill of a 2500 to make it fit with the 1500 bumper.

So you're saying that you're not going to do a mod because someone else already has? Cause by that logic there is probably very few things you can do to your truck that someone somewhere hasn't done already.
