    So I'm looking at buying an older Century, Columbia or maybe an older Cascadia but really dont like how dated the nose/s looks. The cab & wheelbase look so similar with that of the late model Cascadias and those look really modern & slick. Has anyone ever attempted this conversation? If so I'd be very interested in what's involved. I'd love to do this & add a beefy 4
    four post Herd bumper to match the late model Cascadia nose. Any insight would be greatly appreciated.

    I don't know about running a late model hood on an earlier Cascadia, but you could not put a Cascadia hood on a Century/Columbia unless you want it to look like a Frankenstein truck.

    Anyone ever try matching a FLD hood to a Century hood? They look about the same. That would give the bigger hood look to the Century if it would work. Just curious.

    It's a dirty job, but someone has to do it!

    Coronado cab us the same as Century/Columbia. It's a huge project, but that could be done

    Coronado hood would have the front axle position problem. Dream over, wake up.
    Good chatting with you.
