yeah it will work if you get the core support and headlights as well, your fenders will work with the swap. OR if you cant afford a hood just cut your hood to fit but Im not sure if youll need the powerdome to make it look right. I did the same swap on my 02 but I have the 01-03 hood and its cut out for the new grille

I just bought that grill advertised for a 2002. It came for an 04-08. t looks like it could be made to work. I have the 4.0 4X4 XLT, so it should look good. It looks like if I take the old honeycomb grill off, it might fit, but leave a whole under the headlights. Any suggestions? Anybody done this?

mike, is the honeycomb for a 2001-2003? hood for an 04-2010? if thats the case it wont work

Tyler, the bumper brackets on the bumper will fit in the frame horn where your old bumper bolted onto no problem

core support won't have to be swapped, but the header panel probably will. can't help with the headlights. there is a guy that has a multi year front end, but not sure who it is.

you WILL need the appropriate year bumper brackets and reinforcement brackets.
