98+ fenders are the same. the 98-00 hood may work, i'm not sure. there is a swap guide either on here or one of the other sites.

dude go newer than that, that grille isnt that much nicer looking..

I'm gonna try to explain something on the hoods, i dont know the exact years but...

you should get a new hood too because you have this hood

and with something like "03 or 04+" hoods, they connect differently to the grille.



But obv you might be just wanting to upgrade very cheaply.

Two different good looking styles but they will require a newer powderdome hood. If you don't have a powerdome currently...they kick ***

*edit* i dont know but maybe you're able to pop out the chrome insert and replace it with billet grille?

That's a 2001-2003 XLT grille. The Edge has the honeycomb grille.

Yes it will work and you can reuse your hood and fenders. You only have to change the hood if you go with 04 or newer style. The powerdome hood was used on the 01-03 edge & tremor models. The 04 and newer hoods are kinda like a shorter powerdome but have a modified front edge for the newer style grills.

With the package from ebay it may not include the headlight sliders and the dust sheilds for under the headlights.

LOL, That's because you have a 4X4 XLT
I should have been more specific ... the grille in the picture is for a 2001-2003 XLT 2WD
