The 98-99 shrouds are different than the 00-newer,
the lower front mounting hole, where the bolt goes into the radiator, is straight on the 98-99, and at an angle on the new ones.

let me correct myself the plastic i've been lookin at (ufo)does not include 02 but 98 thru 01 have the same pn's so it must fit and not be that much different......
