I got mine from LMC, I had to drill out 2 holes, but that might be just because of my lift brackets, who knows.

No the brackets are different that is why you had to drill. So don't just buy the bumper you need all the hardware to go with it.

The holes were in the right spot, just not big enough.

No the brackets are different. I had an 01-03 bumper and valance and it would not work unless I bought the brackets and hardware for the 01-03.
