It should fit. I'm almost completely sure that the recent body style uses the same bolt up design and everything. It should only be like 4 bolts. And the tow hooks should fit just right. I'm with you on the chrome! I like chrome a lot better than the color designs.

Both of these are the passenger side. Sorry about the fuzziness. My camera sucks that close.


And this is the bumper style that I have. But like I said before, they all pretty much bolt up the same.

Hope that helps! Gotta hit the sack. It's late over here in Germany

The brackets should all be the same.

Also only a grille from 2004-2011 will work.
