Trucks a 2001 Yukon Xl 2500 with this style front end

I want to swap it to this front end from the Sierra truck

2004_gmc_sierra_1500_4_dr_slt_4wd_extended_cab_sb-pic-56509-S.jpg

Ever since I bought this truck I've had a hard time finding out any information on it. Now I have been told the frame is a lot more similar to a 1500HD truck frame or a 2500 (non HD) truck frame. (Same drive train as well, 14 bolt SF, autotrac tcase, etc).

Just curious if anyone knows if the frame horns on the 2500 Yukons are the same as the ones on the 1500 sierra trucks? Or 1500HD Sierras? If I use the 2500HD front end Ill have the stupid gap between the grill and bumper. If I use the 1500HD or 1500 front end I wont have the gap. Obviously the 2500HD and 1500 have different front frame horns. If the 2500 Yukons are the same frames/frame horns then I can just fond a front end off a 1500 Sierra or 1500HD and bolt it all right on WITHOUT the gap and WITHOUT cutting and swapping frame horns.

Any input would be great. Thank:rock:

So you just want to swap bumpers basically? Just get one and fab new mounts for it.
Bumper, grill, Valance, brackets for fog lights and the bumper brackets are different. Id rather find mounts that will bolt right up then have to fab. I like things looking factory.
