01 ish Front clip on a 97

My 97 has some front-end damage and I figure i'll covert it to a 01-ish front clip. Front grille, headlights and bumper. If I have everything...will it all bolt up or do I need to custom fab things? Thanks for your help guys.

Ben

you will need 98+ fenders, 98-03 Hood, 01-03 header panel, 01-03 grill, grill surround, 01+ headlights and corners, wiring modifications for blinker/runner, various clips and hardware. Also, I believe you'll either need adapters or will need to modify your frame horns to accept a 98+ bumper.

he forgot the biggest part... you need a 98+ Radiator support you have to grind/drill out your current one then make sure the front end is square and re-weld in the new one..
