Frames are the exact same up front...some have a full crossmember up front(towhooks), others dont(no towhooks). The bracket between the frame horns and the bumper are different, so are the outer bumper reinforcements....different between the model years(98-00, 01-05, '06+ is a bumper cover thats push pinned into an inner bumper frame). All those years....frame horns for bumpers are all the same.

You leave the bumper reinforcement on the bumper, it doesn't need to be taken off for removal. This thread is so confusing lol

That's why I was hoping you were bringing your truck. Oh well, I'll just throw all the small parts in a bucket and we can figure it out.

Yeah I mean the BRACKETS!!!! That is why every post I have posted has said BRACKETS!!! Not once ****ing time did I say frame holes. No **** those are the same and I wouldn't need to buy new frame holes to get the bumper to fit. I would ****ing make them. Read my posts before you start to argue!!

there is no reason to take off the brackets on the bumper so this shouldnt even have been an argument..

if you read the thread and your posts they where VERY confusing and i wasnt the only one that did not understand what you where trying to convey...

use full sentences next time

chill out.. it wasnt an argument we where trying to figure out what you were talking about? lol
