do 2000's have the same bumpers as a 97?

Or would fitting this require some molding work...

Different bumpers. you may be able to somehow fit it, but i've never seen it done before....just get an edge bumper!

Looks realy good on a lowered truck....but watch the freaking curbs when you're parking at a gas station or something....I love watching people pull too far up and crunch thier bumpers.

I always wondered what those brackets looked like since im going to mount the valance on my 92... Do they just bolt to the back of the bumper or what?

Do you think they would be easy to mount to a bumper they dont belong on or is the bumper actually designed for those. I hope this makes sense lol.

on the 93 bumper there is a metal bracket that goes across the corner of the bumper (haha if that makes sense) then the fog light bracket bolts onto that if i remember correctly. it will defiinitely crawl under the truck today and take some pics and will post them in this thread so the OP can see too.. haha

i will run out right now and take some for ya.

EDIT:

got some pics for ya.. just uploading to photobucket at the moment.

here's the bracket that bolts on the bumper itself


then this is where the fog light bracket bolts onto the bracket on the bumper


then this is what it looks like with the fog light bracket i just held it up there to show you


and just for ****s and giggles i snapped a pic of how my 93 bumper bolts on. the 2 silver big nuts are the ones that hold the bumper on, there's 2 on each side. just in case you were wondering.


and thats it.. i might have a picture of my bumper off the truck somewhere. maybe not tho..cant remember i'll see if i can find it.

also if you look at the bolts on the bottom of the bumper thats where the valance mounts.
