Front end ideas for 07 up silverado

Front end ideas for 07 up silverado

Postby saleen656 [OP] » Jan 24 2012, 7:23pm

Owning a body shop I was able to buy a 2010 silverado for a reasonable price. The truck has front end damage and the bumper assembly and grille has to be replaced. Instead of putting all new oem parts on the truck I thought about doing something subtle to the front end. Does anyone have any good ideas/ pictures of grille and bumper variations? The truck originally had the painted bumper ends with chrome style grille. I have seen some with painted grilles and bumper covers. Dont really know what route I want to go yet. If anybody has any ideas that would be awesome??

I'm not sure how much damage it has or what you plan to do with it but I would look at a front end replacement bumper/brushguard. Then all you'd have to do is find a grille and you might be able to find one in a junkyard reasonably priced. All depends on how you want the finished product to look I guess.

Check out http://www.lmctruck.com/ They have a lot of different grille and headlight options. Can even get bumpers from them too. Worth looking at if you want to do something other then OEM.

I went with the chrome bumper center because i think the all red makes the headlights not look right. What color is your truck

I'd stick with OEM, but that's just my personal choice. If you have get a new bumper, can't go wrong with the foglight one, and either a painted grill or chrome, I just can't stand the flat black 'work truck' grill, but to each his own lol. Since you own a body shop you should be able to get a good price on plenty of parts, I may be wrong though. Any ways, good luck!

I would put a nice custom winch bumper up front with recovery points and a 2 inch receiver hitch hidden behind the license plate. Powder coat it to the color of your choice and depending on the color of your truck powder coat the grill the same color. Also if your replacing the hood I would look at going to the HD style. I have read on here that they will fit.
