I know this question comes up alot about the 03-04 front end and the 05-06 front but has anyone ever tried just taking the grill from a 05-06 and tried popping it into a 03-04 front end.It just seems like the grill is the same besides that stupid bar that 03-04 has it in even with the lights being different.

Or would anyone have the measurements of the 05-06 Grill or would like the measure it and post the results.

I'd like to get a little more info then the generic do a front end swap and stop asking.

Thanks

dude I've done it when the 05 1st came out

just cut the crossbar out and put the 05 grill on then either keep the plastic part black or color match it to your car.

sure
1.remove front bumper
2.remove rear section of grill behind the crossbar
3.cut crossbar (piece that was cut off wasn't noticable before paint was applied so you can keep it black or color match it to your car)
4.attach 05 grill
5.add any 05 DC5 usdm or jdm emblem of choice.
6.reinstall front bumper
