No...not without some cutting and fabrication...the front clip and fenders and hood are all different.
But yes with fabrication it can be done..
For 98-00 its a direct bolt in swap....

Ok got just about everything in place and ready to rock. But I'm looking at the new bumper / valence... The part that connects to the valence. and I'm not sure how it bolts on... Any suggestion or walk through?

Get a ep27 flasher to make your blinkers work. Not sure why your lights don't work, I'm guessing you bought hid's?
