they are shaped quite a bit different you will have to custom fab the mounts.... but it shouldnt be that hard

I dont believe it will fit at all, the bumper set-up is completely different, grill set-up and lights. It will not match. The 08 bumpers are completely straight across vs the 03-07 the bumpers arc up after the grill up to the lights. Heres a few pictures 08 on top and mine on the bottom you can tell the difference in them.

that could be fabbed onto the new bumper after the initial mount though.... but those would have to be built also.....
