    I'd like to switch the lower plastic bumper from an '01-'04 onto my 2000. I was just wondering if this was even possible. Anybody know?

    No, the bumper/valence design is totally different.

    it probably would, but the contours of the bumper wouldn't match w/ the bottom of the grille. Possible, but IMO wouldn't look good unless you swapped the entire front end.

    I was just about to post the same comment.:cool:

    You will have to modify the frame horns to get the 01-04 bumper to fit.

    It's an 89 Toyota Pickup. I got some stuff done to it.. FJ axles going under it soon.
    You just have to drill holes on the 01-04 brackets..its the same as a 4runner bumper swap(popular swap to 2wd Tacomas).

    01-04 bumpers are physically wider then 98-00 bumpers because all 01-04 trucks came with 4x4 fenders..whether it be a 4wd or 2wd...so if you don't have 4x4 fenders on you truck and you have flat top 2wd fenders...the 01-04 bumper will look funky on there. I've done the swap and I know it looks weird lol

    You could always get a 2WD 98-00 bumper..the metal bumper itself goes all the away across the valance..unlike the 4wd bumpers of those years.

    It's probably plasti dipped. But this thread is 7 years old so I doubt you'll get OP to answer.

    If prepped right. That's how lots of members get rid of the chrome on their grilles and rear bumpers.
