Default 09+ bumpers on an 05?

anyone know if a 09 and up sport bumper will fit a 05?
if it does has anyone done this?
i think it would look killer, i love the sport bumpers with the dual exhaust.

I haven't seen this done. I suspect that the bracket dimensions don't match. I'd go measure the newer bumper, sketch it out, then compare that to your truck.

Don't forget to measure the distance between, the length of and the dimensions of the brackets.

ya i can make new brackets no problem, i work in a sheet metal shop and i can weld, cut and shape metal quite well, only concern i have is how it follows the body lines
