    Does anyone know whether or not the front bumper valance from an 01 - 04 tacoma will fit on the 95 - 97 tacomas? I like the lower profile look of the 01-04s bumpers.

    This is the piece I'm talking about:

    I believe they are different. The 01-04 has the bump in the middle and most of the 95-97 are flat on top. 95-97 had facelifts so they are not all the same, but I don't think the 01-04 will work on any of them.

    Thanks for the quick reply! my truck is a 95 and i realize that the front end had a facelift after 97, but the same bump is in the middle of my bumper... the actual chrome bumper piece from both year trucks looks the same to my untrained eye. anyone else know anything about this?


    Edit: I think I found my own answer haha. The 95-97 trucks and the 01-04 trucks both have the bump in the middle but from what I can tell the bump is larger on the 01-04s.

    So would it be possible to swap the entire front bumper from an 01-04 onto my 95? (entire meaning the chrome bumper as well as the valance)
