you need the gen2 lower tree to fit the tubes. if you don't have a gen 2 dampener you will have to drill the hole out on the lower tree to fit the gen1 dampener stud. also if you have all the gen2 hardware the dust cap from the gen2 don't fit on a gen1 frame. Otherwise its no big deal.

With the exception of the steering dampener it will bolt right up. Dust cap,,, sets on top of the frame underneath the top tree,, has the round nuts on top of it with the notches in it.

I changed my Gen I to a Gen II front end. If you want completely bolt on you will need the lower tree, steering damper, forks, fender, brake discs, calipers, bolts, axle, axle spacers and rim. There is a thread on here somewhere. I'll see if I can find it.

Necro revival for my attempt. Is the angle of the front end of the gen 1 the same as the gen 2? Reason I am asking, clearance issues with intercooler/radiator and turbo header/fans. I need that front tire as far away as I can. If the angle is different and less of an angle meaning the tire is closer to the radiator, then this is a bad idea.

I already went to a low profile front tire to see if I can get more space. Was going to do a gen II wheel with rotors and brakes off the bay (and damper).
