Grafting 04 WJ Limited bumper section onto a 97 ZJ Limited

This is an interesting idea I've been toying with, and I'm wondering if anyone out there has done anything like it. And also what you all think of it.

How cool would it be to graft the bottom half of an 04 WJ Limited bumper onto the upper half of a ZJ bumper? I'd get the round fog lights which I love, the smoother front fascia and the single-large lower opening.

Of course it's one thing to Photoshop it, and quite another to graft these two very different pieces together, but here's what it might look like:

The picture above is of a 98 5.9L with an 04 Limited bumper, but that's pretty close to how my 97 ZJ would look since I'm already installing the 5.9L grille and louvers. The only difference...mine is black.

Anyone here with an 04 willing to take a couple of bumper measurements for me to see if this is feasible? I'd really appreciate it.

Kind regards,
