well the newer bumper caps extend back to the flares so youll have to trim the front fenders and flares even with the headlights and in the back they extend over the rockers to the flares so youll have to remove the body trim and trim the rear flares. pick up a set a make em' work....be a trend setter.
good luck!

thanks, i was thinking of even using the flares off a 97-01, always loved the look of it, and the rear caps will help cover up the two random hole i have in thre rear quarter

even better! i think the newer flares mount a little differently but it should work. and yes the rear cap will cover those holes. when you go to get the caps take the metal strip off the rear quarter panel that holds part of the rear bumper cap, you'll need it.
