    I don't think it's a direct fit. 01-04 models have different hoods, at least.

    not just the grille. you would need a new grille, head lights, parking lights, turn signals, hood, and maybe a new bumper(might looks werid with the 00 style bumper)

    I think the park lights are actually the same. There is a guy on here that swapped his 01-04 for an older style....but I cant remember his name. There is a write up about it floating around though

    the 00 style doesnt have the chrome piece around the light. the 95-97 and 01-04 do IIRC

    Ive been thinking about doing this also... I've gathered we'll need a new hood, headlights, maybe corner lights, bumper fillers, and front bumper not sure if the list is complete or not

    Hey, don't complain too much about the 01-04 style. I'd rather have that than mine.:pout: I just covered it up with a brush guard though.

    I agree I don't like the 98 to 00 front end as much as the 95 -97 or 01-04. I like the 01-04 best but it seems like a lot of money to swap.

    I always thought they made a truck look like they belonged parked in front of a nursing home, but hey, gay grille or not, a taco is a taco! Btw a bugflector will do it great justice, and you can pickup an Aries brush guard off ebay for like 200$
