Possible yes. Would it look right, probably not. You would probably have to switch to the HD grille so you didn't have gap between the bumper and grille, but don't know if the widths of the 99-02 and the 03-07 grilles are the same. I'm sure you would have to move/swap the bumper mounts on the frame too

Aren't the frame horns different between the 99-02 & 03-06?..

yea different frame horns. depending oon the length of the bottom of a hd grille and a 03 grille the hd might would fit. but the lines of the bumper dont roll the same way as the truck.

Frame horns are the same. That's why guys swap 99-02 fronts to 03-06 fronts and that's why Bull bars fit 99 to 06 trucks. Will it fit with existing grill? NO.

No.


The 03+ bumper is not recognized or supported by the less sophisticated Class 2 Serial Data Bus that's found in the 1nd gen 99-02 NBS trucks.

the frame horns are the same but the welded on bumper brackets are a service part as a bolt on kit. so they are not a problem
