also with the vin on the frame deal, is it really that big o'deal...???? If you get stopped by the police, there just going to check the number on the dash. what else do you really need...???? registration matches the plate, plate matches vin, no problems there!

If you get caught with mismatched vins they impound the truck. If you can prove ownership of both VINs you're ok but if he's having reg problems on one I doubt he would get the truck back. Just a worst case scenario

so far the hood and grill look to be a pretty simple task with minor mods for remounting....but we shall see

----------

also as far aas the vin i considered it but the good title is to the 99 ext cab and thats what i want 04 is reg cab....and 04 looks much better so thats what began this project and registration would say ext cab but dont think it didnt cross my mind...lol
