Default 1997 to 01+ front clip swap

Hey people, I have a 97 and want to put the front clip from a 01 or newer onto it. I noticed they did that swap on Trucks TV show, but they only went up to a 98. Has anyone do that? I figured I'd need a hood, fenders, radiator mount, bumpers.... anything else?? thanks people

been done many times. hood, fenders, core support, lights, grill, header panel, hood latch, bumper, bumper brackets, and a little cab work on the frame to mount the new core support. it can be done without the core support, but why risk trying to make the old work and not have everything lining up.
