New to the boards here guys and on a the hunt to do the first gen escalade swap on my 98 k1500. I see kits available online but not huge fan of the price plus the shipping and exchange on top of that. My question is the parts I see listed online for the swap, are they all parts I can just order from a bodyshop/parts store? If I walked in an said I need these parts etc from a first gen escalade will they all just bolt onto the truck? Would really appreciate insight and even a walkthrough for this kind of endevour.

The parts at your dealer will work 100% and are actually better than the kits being sold in the mags. The dealer headlights wont turn yellow in a years time. The mags will be a little cheaper (obviously) but you get what you paid for. Youll need the fenders, hood, lights, bumper, and core support.

you dont need the core support. mine bolted to my stock. everything was bolt on except my bumper. i didnt like the way it sat stock so i welded it where i wanted it. but the stock escalade bumper will work no problems.
