Front Bumper Cover

I have 2000 Dodge Dakota. I bought this truck with front end damage and it needs some work.

I was noticing that the front bumper is made of plastic and the 2nd part of the bumper is made of metal. ON NEWER models, it's all one piece and entirely made of plastic....

I was wondering if you can use newer model bumpers on this model Dakota???

Here's what I'm talking about if it was unclear::

01-04 Bumper - http://www.ebay.com/itm/330611768463?ssPageName=STRK:MEWAX:IT&_trksid=p3984.m1423.l2649

Can you use an 01-04 front bumper (plastic) on a 2000 Dodge Dakota???
Do I just need to replace a bracket or two?

I found this to be the only pair of brackets to be different:

You can use the one piece bumper on your truck. It will fit. The one piece just uses different brackets and has a few more pieces to buy.

Here are some pics to help you see the difference in parts between the two.
