Question about swapping frontend?

I have seen several people that put the 05-06 grille, bumper and headlights on the 03-04's. Is this a true bolt on swap or is there alterations that need to be done?

If you buy the 05-07 header panel, it all bolts right on. You'll have to buy adapters for the headlight bulbs but that's it

Yep, if you dont want to replace the header panel, you can take a rotozip and mod your current panel to fit the headlights and grill.
