Default 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

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

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