Even though I don't really care for any of the bumper covers I have seen, I have also wondered the same thing.

The way the bumper cover is shapped i feel that if i shaved, or sand down the 00 bumper to the 05 bumper thickness the the cover would have no problem fitting.

Just get the 05 bumper...the painted ones are cheap as hell.

And beware Street Scene parts...they rarely if ever fit without tons of work to them.
I've used their air dams, bed rails, roll pans, and wiper cowls....none of it fit without modification.

Spending money I don't have on crap I don't need to impress people I don't know.

You need 05+ brackets or they won't work. I would check http://www.certifit.com for the complete bumper, good price and mine looked to be OEM quality!
