    I looked all around but all I could find was threads regarding swapping a 2001+ onto an older truck. I am wondering what would be involved in putting a 1997 bumper grill and headlights onto say a 1998-2000 truck, both 4x4. Would it be a simple bolt on?
    I am wondering because I may try and pick up a 2000 Tacoma, but the 97 front end is simply bad-ass.

    nothing, all stock expect got a OE replacement air filter K&N.
    you will need pretty much the whole front end: both fenders left and right. hood, headlights, bumpers, grille...and hopefully other can pitch in too.

    Yeah, swap it out! The 2000 front end is ugly!

    Your looks won't help you off road, but if you don't off road... I guess to each their own
