So what all did you end up having to order? I know the hood and vent. You used your 15 isulation. Did you need clips? Or removed the ones from your 15 hood? I too have a 15.5 Denali and would like to try this out. Doesn't need to be functional. Just for looks.

Twin540,i have a 2015 2500HD Duramax and i ordered all the parts for this hood and installed the hood already and it was a perfect fit,but i ordered the 17 air box and all the 17 intake set up also (i'm a GM parts man at a Chevy dealer here in Houston) my question to you is did you use a 17 air box also? if so did it set off a light because the 17 MAF is different than the 2015.
I was going to just install the 2015 MAF sensor into the 2017 box.

I went with an afe aftermarket air box . Can you post pictures of the 17 airbox? I'm sure it wil help someone else with the decision to fabricate the 17 to work.. I looked everywhere for pics with no luck so i played it safe and went the after market .rohttps://www.duramaxforum.com/forum/images/DuramaxForum_2016/smilies/tango_face_glasses.pngute..

The hardest thing with the cab lights was getting it center.....don't go by the review mirror if you have a LTZ....its not center.....i used masking tape and a tape measure, to make sure mines was center before i drill any holes, have some one stand in front of the truck and watch your hood, grill for an idea where the center is, then used your tape measure and measure both sides, i ran a tape from behind the roof antenna from one end to the other end so the lights will be in line with the rear of the antenna and the front will be offset, i will try and do a write up once i get time, you have to remove the sun visor, pillars (be careful for air bags) Both sides, also center console with switches, i took a feed from my roof middle console (brown wire) is Park lights
