difference between front covers
So, I broke a hole in my front cover, while getting the fan off to change the water pump. Truck is an early 04.
From what I can find, there are 3 different covers, 03-early 04.5, late 04.5 only, and 05-07. I am trying to figure out what the differences are.
Is the difference between early and late just the water pump and the difference between late and 05+ the radiator hose inlet angle/size.
How interchangeable are they? If I use the larger water pump is the late 04.5 a direct swap? Can I use the 05-07 cover by only swapping to the large water pump and a different radiator hose or will my steering box interfere?
