2001-2006 Escalade EXT fenders

I know this is a weird question but i am unable to locate the answer i am looking for. I recently had the idea that i wanted to change the front end on my crewcab 4x2 to the Escalade front fenders and hood with the giant composite headlamps and SS style front bumper. The problem that i ran into at my work locating fenders is that none of the computers at work say that we offer any escalade fenders WITHOUT the cladding. obviously my crew is a gmc and doesnt have the cladding so i didnt want to buy fenders with cladding and do a ton of body work to remove the cladding holes.

THEN i came across this photo and several others like it showing fenders without the cladding but the headlamps and bumper like what i was thinking i wanted to do.

does anyone know what these fenders are exactly and where i could source a pair of them?

If those are factory fenders from a GM vehicle my guess would be to try to find someone who has that vehicle and get the VIN from it. Go to a dealership that can do the parts look up through the VIN and try that.

Well, I did some more digging and actually contacted a member on another forum who had done the conversion. It turns out they are indeed factory fenders but not in the way you might think. they are 2003-2006 escalade ext fenders that have been heavily modified by grafting 2003-2006 silverado fenders to the bottom portion. lots of welding in other words.

I looked at work today and we have a cherry set that i can probably get for free or extremely cheap. i will pick these up and do the modification, or at least attempt the mod.

I was really hoping for a bolt on solution.

Im sure but on the plus side it'll be cheap mistake if it doesn't go right.
