Does anyone here carry either the brackets or the bracket kit for the 05 and up bumpers? LMC has the kit, but it's $300. seems a bit high to me, for 4 brackets and some bolts.

Do you have any junk yards around you? I ended up ordering what I couldn't pick, a lot cheaper that way.

theres a couple, but they're not helpful at all. I've already called almost all in CT, and they all say the same thing that the 05 truck front ends are tricky to come by.

Which brackets?
I have the 2 large L shaped ones that go on the outside, lower ends you can have if that's what you're loking for.
I'll have to look at work tomorrow and see what the hell I did with them.

theres those L brackets, the thin little braces and the mounting plates. I just ordered the whole front end, but no brackets, so yeah, that would help.

05-07 are presumably the same when it comes to scrap yards.

hahaha. no problems. I'm still quite a ways away from the swap. motor has to come out first for some "gasket repair". and everything has to get painted too.

the mounting plates must be different - LMC sells the 99-03 plates for $19 and the 05-07 for $69. doesn't seem like THAT big a difference between the 2 plates.

they are different enough though they they won't work, dunno why the price difference is that drastic
