if you don't want to trim the bottom of the 05-07 grill, you need the 05-07 bumper and upper pad also -- which will also change your fog lights and you will need the new bumper mounting brackets..

the headlights will require you to either cut your existing header panel behind each light or to put on the 05-07 header panels and either way, you'll need the pigtails for the 05-07 lights to change out...

without the bumper to go with it, ALOT of trimming is involved. The header panel from the donor truck will make life easier too, get it if you can.

I've done mine, and I'm in the Houston area, contact me if you need a hand.

I just swapped in an 05 grille and bumper and the bumper mounts to the exact same holes as the old bumper. The new one has brackets coming off of each side that look like they mount to existing bolts on the sides of the frame rail, but I haven't attached them yet and it looks like it will be ok.
