Personally I love the 06 grille and hood. Someday I want to swap my truck over to that setup. Can't wait to see how yours turns out!

All 06 models have the high rise hood like an 03-05 HD and yeah, when I bought my setup the hood was kinda high.
The 03-04 Silverado's all had the same (non-HD) hood, which had 2 "fang" like points that met up with the grille. The 05 had a flatter hood line along the grille, much like the 99-02 models and reintroduced the HD high rise hood back into the truck line.
As mentioned before, all 06-07c trucks received the HD hood, 1500 or HD. Which is probably why I really started to like what they were doing with the truck, even though I hated the 03+ styling up to that point. I especially like the chrome grille surrounds and HD combo but still prefer the 01-02 HD's overall.
