Well when most people do a 99-02 to an 03-07 swap they have to trim the bottom of the 03-07 grille slightly to fit on a 99-02 bumper. So im guessing you will have to trim your grill if you want it to fit.

the 05-07 bumper is a little lower with a paintable cap tot ake up space under the headlight....

like mentioned, the 05-07 grille is little longer from a head on shot.....look on ebay for the grille that updates the 99-04 to the 05-07 and you will see the lower crossbar is way thinner.

yes, if you run the 99-04 bumper...of course you can modify either.

you can
1. trim the lower portion of an 05-07 grille to fit the 04 bumper
2. you could trim the bumper top on the 04 to allow the vertical height difference to clear
3. you could space the 04 bumper outward enought to clear your grille

4. you could also purchase the MKM customs grille for the 99-04 to mimic your 05 grille. (this grill is pre trimmed to the size to fit the 99-04)
