It sounds like Gabriel was asking if the later 1-piece Gen III all
plastic bumper covers would work with the earlier Gen III
steel-upper/plastic-lower equipped trucks. In which case I believe they
will. As long as you have all the parts (bumper cover, sub-bumper,
brackets, etc) then they should be a direct swap.
