tahoe front end ??

Has anyone seen a kit or a silverado from 03- 07 with the 08 tahoe front end on it? by the looks of it i should just need the headlamp assy and the grill ? I am not certain they will work with my fenders and curent bumper ?

I dont believe anyone has a kit out for it, yet. From the looks of it, you would need the front fenders as well, but it is doable.

I will bet there is more to it. The Tahoe front clip and bumper all ties together. Since the grille height is taller on our trucks; you are looking at quite a bit of work.

you'd be better to get a front clip from a Denali then try putting a Tahoe front clip on.

The tahoe clip would look good. Or you can go with a Caddy front end.

I have seen kits to put an Escalade front end on, that would look cool too.

Here is a newer one with a new caddy front end on it. It would give you an idea atleast.

It turns out i need cow core support, hood fenders, grill, and lights for that set up. I have decided it is a bit more than im wanting to mess with. I have enough to keep me busy for a bit.

The height difference makes it a real challenge.
