no. The 97 and earlier bumpers are completely differnt. The grille comes down on 98+ models.....you're bumper is flat on top where 98+ are not.

Other than that all the rest will fit.

Usually run like 150 + 150 shipping on ebay. Keep in mind, those parts are discontinued. Ebay be your only chance.

well, i knew the grille wouldn't work so i was just going to peace it away. but i really wanted to use that lower bumper fascia piece though, does it just bolt onto the metal bumper? i mean, it shouldn't be too hard to make it work correct?

I believe it's a one piece bumper cover. it goes on top of the stock bumper. I'm not positive. Theres a guy on G-E that installed that kit.

To use the thunderbolt/Roush front valance on your 94 you'll need a 01+ 2wd bumper. You'll have to make up some brackets to mount the bumper.

Heres my current and older trucks I had, both have the Thunderbolt/Roush front valance on them

The Thunderbolt/Roush are only the lower valance, not a bumper cover and yes ebay is the only place that seems to have them. If you are looking into a bumper cover xenon makes one for 01+ 2wd bumpers that look almost like the Thunderbolt/Roush one
