Is the Replacement Mounting Kit # 40-117PK Correct for a 2005 Chevrolet Silverado 1500


I purchased a Grille Guard for my 2005 Chevy Silverado 1500 Base Model. Its off a Suburban. Matches my truck and frame just fine. But no mounting brackets. Checked on your web site and for my truck item # 40-117 PK came up. will this work or do you suggest something else. look forward to hearing from you! Thank you!

If the grille guard that you have is the Westin Sportsman Grille Guard, part # 45-1170 for Stainless Steel or part # 40-1175 for Black Powder Coated Steel, then the Replacement Mounting Kit # 40-117PK is exactly what you need to mount it to your 2005 Chevrolet Silverado 1500. No other grille guards are compatible with this mounting hardware.

Keep in mind that if it is a different grille guard it will not fit. I spoke with my contact at Westin who said that grille guards and bull bars are made to fit specific vehicles so if you were to purchase this mounting kit and you didn't have either of the guards mentioned above, they would not be compatible with your Silverado. Since your grille guard came off of a Suburban and neither of the above mentioned grille guards do not fit a Suburban, it looks like you may need a new grille guard.

If you have a different brand grille guard that we carry let me know and I can look into a mounting bracket for it for you.
