01-03 front end swap members....

When those of you who swapped from a 98-00 front end to a 01-03, did the header panel use the same hardware? I just got mine but i don't have any bolts for it.

Thanks.

Yeah you can use all the same bolts but you will need the sliders for the 01 headlights and your plastic air deflector behind the grill won't fit. You might be able to modify it though. You will also need the screws and clips for the corner lights. You might also want some clear bulbs for the corners and orange bulbs for the turn signals.

cool. i just got a whole front clip but no bolts. Another question maybe you can answer. Do new headlights like off of ebay that are "oem replacement"
come with the threaded metal rods to slide on? these are all broken and crap.

btw, i looked in my toolbox and i can't find the damn gem modules anywhere i was just going ot send them to you lol

The studs should come on the new headlights. I just picked up a set of nice lights but one is missing, I figured I would pick one up in the junk yard. I have a set of certifit lights on my truck and the sliders didn't want ti slide onto them, I ended up trimming them a little with a razor knife.

when i did my swap, i reused all my clips and bolts off my 00 for the 01 set up. if you need j-clips most hardward stores have them, and beware the little plastic pieces that the corner lips pop into, they like to break and they arent cheap either. i might have some parts still floating around if you need them.

The only thing I had to drill the holes on the outside of the header panel out a little for mine to make it fit. Other than that I used almost all the hardware from my 00 front end. Took maybe 2 hours tops, and if your using power tools be careful. I sheared the head off of one of the screws putting it back on.
