01-03 Front End Swap

I am thinking I want to do this swap. Anyone got any parts?

I am looking for everything but have a few requests if possible. I want black headlights and corners. I don't want clears. And I already have the bumper and valance so I need the other stuff.

Kinda want it to look like this. So I will need those parts to make it look like that.

I like the gen 4 front end better, but of course with a full billet grill like I had on mine.

I prefer the newer front end on lifted trucks, and older front end on lowerd trucks.

Find some 06 corners and do the headlight mod yourself, you can save so much money that way and its not that hard.

ebay has the same lamps that Trigger01's truck has...the truck you posted the pic of. About $120 shipped now i believe. 6 months ago they were $140 shipped.

http://lmctruck.com

http://certifit.com

To look just like that truck pictured(Trigger01's), you'll need a Carriage Works 01-03 4x4/EDGE black billet, ebay black 01-03 headlamps and corners, 01-03 XLT 4x4/EDGE grille shell, and the coveted 01-03 'powerdome' hood.

I have the hood. Just need the other stuff. LOL I want it to look sort of like that. For the most part. Maybe not exactly but pretty damn close.
