My 07.5 got a 2012 Front End.

Yea, so I got a pretty good deal on a new take off 2012 front bumper with brackets and all. Then bought the grille new from GM and got some Black Bowtie's and put on it. The swap itself was as simple as unbolting and bolting back up. It was super easy, and well worth it IMHO. I love the way it looks over the 07.5 bumper.

When I first bought it back in May....



As of today....

Yea, I can't say I've seen you around either. I work in Greene Co, but that's about all the time I spend in Greene. Nice looking truck you have yourself.
