Default 05-07 front end conversion

For you guys that have done this conversion. Will the bumper brackets bolt up on my 01? I have the bumper ordered and guess now I need the brackets. Want to make sure it will all match up.

Sweet thanks for that. Would you happen to have a part number? I have found two different brackets. One is just a straight bracket and the other is two brackets.

FYI-you really don't need the bumper brackets. The 05-07 bumper will bolt up directly on the front of the frame w/ a total of 4 5/8" bolts (I believe it what I put in there size) and the brackets on the side do mount to the frame but they are not needed by any means.

I do not have the side bumper brackets on my 06 bumper on my 2000 and i guarantee you my bumper isn't going anywhere! Now if I hit a deer it might bend a little more then if i had the brackets on each side for support.

06 front end was an easy swap, save yrself the headache buy a new header panel to put on yr new headlights & grill..any ? let me know

I have a set sitting in a box at the shop, I can grab the part #'s for you if you are still interested. But, there is a total of four brackets....two that are long and skinny with about a 60* twist and two that are flat that bolt to the frame.

That is the one that I was looking at. Figured that was the kit I needed to bolt on the bumper.

Something like this? Just something I have found.

That is how I did mine. I saved myself the headache and bought the header panel. Figure if you are going to do it do it right the first time. I have a ranch hand front bumper for my 01 so I just cut the bumper so it would fit like a 05-07.
