    Can you swap corner-lights, grill and headlights from a 98-00 4WD onto a 97' 4WD? It appears as though the fenders are the same; just the older front end is more grill than lighting at the headlights and corner-lights. If so does anything need to be altered with the radiator support or would the 98-00 radiator support need to be installed?
    Thanks,
    Fish

    Fish - Welcome to TW!!! Are you from Colorado? I had a friend in high school that we called Fish...

    In any case, I don't know about your answer as I have a 2nd Gen Tacoma. On the otherhand before I got involved with internet forums, I would go to a "U-Pull-It" yard (aka - Junk Yard) and try the combinations from one vehicle to another. You can usually find two trucks to experiment with.

    One caveat - if you remove parts and don't buy them, put them back with the vehicle they came from (for the rest of us looking for parts)...

    What else do you plan to do to your truck?

    Cheers!

    Thanks guys and thanks for the warm welcome, I really appreciate it. The truck in question fell through and I'm still on the hunt. I want a V6, would love regular cab but definitely think I'll end up with an extended cab since the first generation V6 regular cab's are so highly sought after.

    007Tacoma- Not from Colorado, I'm from Delaware and live in Philadelphia, PA. Since I'm still without a truck my plans are in flux but definite needs are; bed racks (renovating my house) and making the stereo iPod friendly... by whatever means necessary.
