why are you only going to 98-00?

Why not a sexy 04+ or at least 01-03?

at least get an edge bumper instead of the giant ugly chrome block bumper from 98-00!!!!

Edit: you know you need new fenders too right?

well, i helped joe (shockfuel) with his 98 to 03 conversion and he gave me all of his old parts, even his old fenders.

all i really need part wise is the hood and bumper.

im going to replace the core support while im at it because mine is rotting out around the body mounts, plus it will make it 100x easier.

the header panel is one of the plastic ones and its cracked, so im going to try to find a oem fiberglass replacement, i need to goto a junkyard and get the turn signal sockets and some odds an ends anyways.

as for the corners, i think he got em off ebay, im not 100% sure.

I'm doing a partial '98 to '01 swap. The powerdome is in paint right now and I'm currently looking for the bumper and lower valance. Gonna keep the '98 lights and grille. If shipping isn't too high for you, I'll let you have my old '98 bumper for cheap.

Red AK, how much you want for yours and what's the shipping cost to 98056?

cool, thanks for the offer.

i think im going to go with a newer bumper so i can run an 08 valance, i think my fog lights will fit behind the hole in the new 4x4 bumper valance.

01-03 edge hood fits fine and looks good.

as for those clear corners the ebay link u posted are close and pretty much as close to the stock looking clear corner you can get. I got the original set of apc clears on my truck haha

Nooo. Keep the 97 style, it's like taking a 92-96 F-150 and switching it to a 98+. But I would like those corners on my 98.
