    Chevy/Escalade conversion?

    I've been wanting a fullsize Ext/Crewcab Chevy with the Escalade front clip for the longest. I've failed at finding one for sale nearby and have heard outragous labor estimates. I'm tempted to proposition a sale on cardomain!Do any of you guys have experience with the mod?...what should the labor run?

    not hard, take off old parts, put on new ones, i think you get new fenders, drop them off at a bodyshio for paint. If you really want someone else to do it, take it to a bodyshop, their labor rates are cheaper

    I'd like around a 2003 unless i can find an older one with low miles/high loan value. On carrdomain theres a few around Louisiana/Texas/Cali.

    If you get an 03-05 That same year escalade clip will basically bolt on. REALLY simple conversion. Hell I dont think you need the hood or fenders...only the grille shell, Grill, Headlights, and bumpers.

    The kid that did the flames on my Durango just put a caddy clip on his brother's truck. Said it was easy everything went together nicely.
