Questions On Doing The Ss Front End Conversion To A Silverado

Recommended Posts

After searching many boards and topics, I keep getting different numbers from different people. Just to confirm, I went to a dealer site and they said they had no idea what it took to do a conversion, but sent me a pic of the parts I would need. I surely wouldn't need every little item on here........right? My truck is just an 06 Silverado 1500, but I want the look of a 03-04-05 SS....going to get a scoop hood, but other then that, I was looking into GM stuff, but dealers are so picky.........even had a couple tell me the fenders were different..........I doubt that, but I've been wrong before. Does anyone have an updated parts list of GM numbers, that it take to do this conversion? Thanks!!

Ok well I did this on my last truck and the only parts i purchased were the cover, and the two brake ducts. I made the brackets myself (trust me this is not difficult). All said and done I spent around $600 including paint.

 

All you need to do it take off the top pad and lower valence from your current bumper and the pad will fit right over, get some double sided tape and fab up some brackets and you're good to go.

 

If you really want to buy all the factory hardware go ahead (nothing wrong with wanting to make it perfect) just giving you another option.

 

Here's how it looked on my truck when I was done:

No it wont fall off lol, the OEM cover should come with some plastic "push in" style rivets that secure the cover to the actual metal bumper behind. The brackets are mostly for rigidity purposes so when you're driving down the freeway its not flapping all over the place. Good luck and keep us updated.

 

Check gmpartdirect.com, thats where I bought mine back in the day.

 

Edit: just checked, they have it for just under $300 for the cover and $110 for each duct.
