The '05 dash is higher at the doors than the '00, and the mirror caps are shorter on the '05. I have read, either here or on FJ, that the reverse ('05 to '00-'04) has been done, and that it is basically a bolt in proposition. I would hope that the passenger side airbags are compatible, I know that the driver side (plug) is NOT. I have SVT seats, door cards and mirror caps in my '05 ST, and plan to install an SVT dash when I can find one reasonably close to me. Good luck.
