Nope i thought the same thing,you'd have to change the fenders,put the front clip on and in order to do that since you have a 97 you'd have to get a rad support to.

The 97 was in a minor accident that bent the hood and thought now would be time to consider the replacement.

Thanks for all of the responses.
