Default Anyone ever put a 97 bumper on a 98+?

I can see the mounts are different, is there any way to put the old mounts on the new bumper or vice versa? Anyone done it? Specifically the front, but same question for the rear incase it is different also.

rear will be bolt on. front...going to take some custom brackets. but it also will not line up well as the 97 is straight across and the 98+ has a dip in the middle.

Thanks, They both have the dip in the middle, perhaps the 98+ is a more defined dip. I am trying to figure out a way to get this bumper on, as I have it here freebie and it is in perfect shape. Chrome to replace my painted. I have a welder, but no skills unfortunately so I'd not know where to line it up to. Bummer.
