Greetings Suzuki Team!
I'm looking for some ways to customize my 3rd gen Grand Vitara.
I have a 2011, and i'm wondering, is it possible to swap my front bumper with a 2013 model?

Thanks in advance!

As far as I know the bumpers changed slightly with the "facelift" model that has the new grille, but over all the bumper and grille as a unit should interchange

I picked up another bumper for my 2011 door and modded it as per the attached pic.,
I like the look and the increased approach angle. Still to find bash plates. Tempted to make my own.

Iron man plates aren't too bad, all depends how serious your off road work is. Making your own is relatively simple. Making ones for evap can and rear diff and muffler too is a good move

Tried getting quotes from them via online enquiry and never heard boo from them. Hence the thought of making my own from 6mm alloy. Will get it up on a hoist and play around with some cardboard first as a template.
Thanks for the tip re evap etc.
Not really hard core offroad, just a few "interesting" bits on hunting trips.

I did the bumper swap as per the earlier post, however, I've no idea of what year
the other bumper came from. It was the right colour and I had no issues with the
changeover. You'd be best to remove your existing one so you can easily compare to
any intended later version. Very simple and quick to remove, maybe 45 minutes max.
