05 front bumper fit 03?

i know the headlights hood and even grill are different but it looks like it could fit based on the cut out for the headlights. (or is there a way to make it fit without swapping out the whole front end?)

Nope it won't fit. If you look at the 05 bumper it comes up the sides of the fenders, where as the 00-04 bumpers remains flat at the fender.

If you want to do the swap, you will need bumper, fenders, hood, headlights, grill. I also believe the windshield washer reservoir is needed as well due to the fender shape.

From what I've read on this forum is the front end sheet metal/bumper can fit, but you've got to swap a '00-'04 to a '05-7, or vice versa. People seem to indicate that it ts a direct swap. Really is nice if you can find a donor car w/ the same color as yours. GL

What you need to make this transplant complete is, the radiator support, fenders, hood, headlights, bumper, grill and windshield reservoir.
