Hey I actually JUST finished putting on an 03 bumper on my 99. I got the bumper, valance and fog lights from cetifit and the brackets from rockauto.com. I got the 4WD bumper in chrome and the Edge textured valance (light grey). I took the hardware from my existing bumper brackets to mount the new ones and took a bunch of nuts and bolts from work to do the rest. Fits like a glove. I can't get you a picture until tomorrow but if you want one, I'll get it.

pics be great, also a 4x4 bumper will not fit a 2wd model correct? so atm im going with the FDRG2000 front chrome bumper with the FDRG4510 edge valance with fogs. i will also look at getting the fog light assemblies since i currently have no fogs but only if i can figure out the wireing .

FDRG20R0 Bumper, front (01-05) 4x4, chrome
FDRG45I0 Edge valance (01-03), paint to match
FDRG82E1 Fog Light Right
FDRG82E2 Fog Light Left

The G2000 is the older style chrome bumper, you want the 20R0 for the 03 swap.

The fogs just come with bulbs, you'll need a fog light switch, relay and wiring to get them to work. You might have the wiring stock, you'll just have to get under there and look for it.

The bumper, valance, and fogs cost me $196 OTD then $52 for the brackets shipped. And since I had stock fog light wires ran I just needed a socket for the bulb. $11 at advance for the pair.

The square lights come on 04-05 models. The lights from certifit are $10 cheaper each but the valance is almost double the other one.

Will add pics of mine tomorrow.
