Will a 2004 WJ Front bumper fit on a 01 WJ?

Basically I have a 01' WJ Laredo, with no fog lights and I want to buy a new front bumper;


(04' Front bumper)

My questions are;

Will this fit on just like my original?
Will I need to do some retrofitting?


-Thanks!

I believe its possible, but check out the link to wjjeeps, the way the grille fits in might be a problem, I think on my 01 Limited the backing is attached to the bumper, but im not entirely sure.

Good luck, let us know how it goes!

NO. You will need to change the Headpanel to a from an 04' and you willneed a 04' Grille and FogLamps

Re: Will a 2004 WJ Front bumper fit on a 01 WJ?

the 04 was redesigned. They changed the grille, but not sure if it is a total redesign. I am pretty sure the front end was changed under the bumpers, so it may be a little different.

It is different. I owned a 01' WJ and then an 04' WJ. Bumpers, Headerpanel, grille, foglights are different for the 04's.

Found this link. Its a grille mod. Maybe it will be something you can do instead of the bumper.
Give it a look.

Thanks for that link, that's an interesting mod, but I'm not concerned about a new grille, I want fog lights

It's possible and in my plans but as said you need to buy the whole front end to make it work. Worth it, mmmmm....

Why not just buy 99-03 fog lights?

Bump.

How did this go..Am thinking of doing the same to my 00' WJ. I like the look of the 04' bumper with the chrome underside of it. Any pics anyone who has done the change or know of how to retro fit it?
