provided they're the same as dakotas, i can tell you what i know from experience. My 98 sport had a two piece. the top piece was the metal, gloss black section with the plastic, color matched bottom. My 04 SXT was the 1 piece, just gray plastic, with a metal frame inside the top section. My 02 Sport is a 2 piece, but its different from my 98. where my 98's top metal section was one exterior piece, my 02 has a metal inner frame (like the one behind my 04's) thats covered by black plastic. then the bottom section is like my 98's, plastic color matched to the body. so which two piece are you lookin to do? as far as i know, the brackets are all the same, just slightly different top sections depending on what truck it is.

Really all I need is the upper piece and mounting brackets as I am going to install the keystone shelby lower piece. So should the upper piece bolt right up?

as far as i know, the top piece should have no problem bolting right up. there are 2 other brackets to support the ends of the bumper, but i think they actually mounted inside the plastic lower valance. not positive on that, tho.

Maybe sure you get a Keystone, all the others are POS.

I meant as far as the Shelby Super-Pursuit style bumper. Don't buy anything from Sarona, Erebuni or anyone else who sells that style bumper. I've checked them all out, cheap and very light with the fiberglass resin, it's almost like foam-core. Keystone and rt1designs (if they are still around) are the original manufacturers of that style.

I didn't know anybody else made that kit. Thanks for the advice. Any advice on where to get one at the best price?
