Default 97-98 front clip on a 2000

I have a 2000 I want to change the front grille surround to a 97/98 style and delete everything underneath and weld up a custom bumper. Does the 97/98 grille surround mount up the same way?
Thanks and I DID search.

Yes and no. They mount the same way but are shaped completely different. The 99-03 curves down in the middle where the 97-98 is a straight shot across.

Exactly why I want to change. Flat plank or tube will mate up in a lovely gapless fashion. Thanks for the reply.

I also like the 97/98 setup better.

Has to run right before it looks right. All of us understand that. Part of the reason I bought an older truck, to tinker with it.
