Default Body changes, Bumper, grille

I got a couple questions. I hate the "cheap" look of the front end.


I start working here in about a month so I wanna make a couple trips to the junk yard. What years front bumper and grills will bolt right up in place of my current bumper and grille?

98-00 direct swap but looks the same
01-03 will bolt on without replacing hood but requires the header panel
04-10 will bolt on if you replace the hood and header panel

Be careful they don't rip you off at the junkyard. I bought a chrome grille there and paid $50. I was wandering around ebay and found a brand new one for the same price that included shipping. Bought 2 bucket seats at the JY for $225 from an explorer that bolted right in so that turned out to be a great buy.

$225 for bucket!?!? Wow. I paid like 15 each for my leather Mounties. A note on the grill. The grill on my front end doesn't meet up smoothly with the hood. There is a 1.5" gap. Doesn't look bad, but it bothers me.
