I'm kind of thinking the 06+ front bumper might look weird on a 2000. If you do make the swap let me know where you find one. I haven't had any luck finding on in a salvage yard and am considering going aftermarket.

The 00 to 04 is bolt on, and the 04 to 06 is bolt on, so I would guess the 00 to 06 is bolt on. I'm planning on doing the 05 to 07 conversion myself.
