Default Upgrade 2000 Front End

I was thinking about possibly upgrading the grill/lights of my 2000 to make it look like something around 2004 (I am not too picky); any year after 2000 looks more aggressive than what I got. Any suggestions/direction as to how to accomplish this?

Parts from here - http://www.certifit.com/

You need to get some other assorted small parts, but the big stuff you could get there, or a JY.

you won't need a core support if starting with a 98+. you may have been thinking the header panel (where the lights, grill mount to)
