    I have not seen anything anywhere online about this... Some may question why, but after looking at the hoods, there are some lines on the GMC hoods that I think would be much better than the center crease that comes on the Tahoes...

    I understand that I would need to fill in the lifted sections above the head lights, but beyond that, am I missing anything? I know people have to cut out the headlight section on the HD conversions.

    Thoughts?

    And with some ideas I have, this would be perfect for the direction I am leaning toward.

    Youll need to buy GMC fenders along with the headlamps to use that hood.

    Fill in the headlight gaps. No need for fenders. Or cut the fender headlight opening up a little more to allow for Denali heads

    Cutting up the fenders wouldnt be worth the time replacing em would be the easiest most efficient way to do it.

    I go down rabbit holes that get pretty dark at times... Usually wind up getting lost; no clue which way is up.

    I'm there right now. I'll eventually find my way out. I have the hood in the garage and a good idea as to how I plan to tackle this little project that only a handful of people will probably ever notice.

    Do it. But keep your Chevy lights.

    Keeping the lights. Figuring out a good way to extend the hood without welding is what's getting tricky and requires research on my part.

    But, very doable.

    That and merging two bumpers into one.
