here i found this truck for sale in Austin TX for 7500 its a 95 2500 with a 2006 front clip and a 2006 bed not bad just needs a little body work to make the lines flow but to me the fender flair flows good, i wouldn't pay 7500 for it but its a good idea for someone like me that loves his 12 valve but dont or cant pay for a 2006 and i did the looking around for the front body parts and you are looking on spending like 600 to 900 for the complete front end,

what you think

i like it! :thumbsup: i really think with a little work the fenders would line up nicely. dont know about the box lines tho, id opt for the stock box, i might look into the front end conversion tho. i bet it wouldnt be that hard. we need a wright up:S: on with my search for a new front clip:party018:

in my opinion. it looks horrible. however if the factory bed were in place, and the front clip had just a tad of work done to make it line up i believe it could look great

i also have to say it looks like crap...

Ditch the box and go with the stock, then a little bit of hammer work to get the front to line up a bit better and youve got a wicked little truck!

Maybe hack the 3rd gen taillights into the 2nd gen box to keep the same 3rd gen look out back...?

IMO this truck looks like shiit in person. I was riding next to him a couple months ago. I could see the headlights shaking around in my rearview when I was in front of him.

I think this thing looks great, for a work in progress. Keep the stock bed, trim the back of the front fenders and weld in part of the 2nd gen ones so all the bodylines match up. Throw on some 3rd gen badges and molding and you got yourself a fine lookin truck! I might go with the '03-'05 front end though, just cause I like that style better.
