01-03 Chome bumper on 04-05 Valance?

Has Ford changed the chrome bumpers any?


On the outside, the chrome bumpers look identical from 01-03 to 04-05, but im not sure if the clips or mounting holes have changed to accomidate for the different style valance change in 04.

My question is; will the clips of a 01-03 chrome bumper line up and work with a 04-05 style valance?


Thanks!
