You don't need an entire front clip to upgrade. The hood and grille from an '01-'03 will bolt right on. I did the powerdome hood on mine with no problems at all. Lots of guys have done this.

98-08 fenders are the same. 98-03 hoods (non-powerdome) are the same. To run the 01-03 grilles(EDGE, xlt, etc..), headlights, you'll need a new header panel. To run a 04-08 front end, you'll need hood, grill, new headerpanel, headlights corners. To run a 01-05 bumper/valence I believe you'll need new frame horns??? Not too sure on that one.

Hey Shane! Good talking to ya the other night.

I forgot about the lights and header panel. From what I understand, the '01-'05 bumpers and valances bolt right up.

Oh yea....

01-05 EDGE and 4x4 XLT bumpers are the same....only difference is painted vs. chrome.

01-05 EDGE and 4x4 XLT lower valences are interchangable....differneces are painted vs. textured black or grey(depending on year), and a little different design/shape.....round fogs vs. square fogs.

01-05 2wd XL and XLT uppers and lowers are also interchangeable. Again with slight differences in the valences.

So you could run a 01 XLT 4x4 upper, and a 05 EDGE lower.

generally......years break down is this: 01-03, and 04-05.

'06 bumpers are retarded. They are covers.

Forgot to mention....04-08 grilles are interchangable. Same with 01-08 headlights and corner lamps.

Yes it will, you need the bumper brackets for the 03 too though.

Thank you. I just ran across a great deal one. Free. It is off a 4x4 will that matter that the 99 is 2x4?
