I don't know. Since they have matching "moldings" on the front and rear bumper, it might look odd.

I'm sure one of the Photoshoppers can hook you up with a preview, tho

thats another plan in the future, i want to strip the chrome off the front bumper and use a 02-05 rear bumper ( no chrome, and there is a small extra lip at the bottom )
