Sorry, it's not a direct replacement. IIRC that swap involves replacing the radiator core support (where lights all mount).

Welcome aboard just the same!

Try using the search function if you want to swap the different style headlamp , I recall this topic having a couple "how to" threads with pics , a rather easy swap , but you will need to get the grille that goes with the composite bulb housings as they are a little different , but no it is not a direct replacement , I have seen the swap done without replacing the radiator support .
