i doubt it, the '08 headlight assembly has a different shape on the bottom (rounded) vs the 2005-2007 assembly which is flat on the bottom.....i mean the mounting screws might line up (maybe i dont know) but it wont look right since the '08 also has a matching portion on the front facia that blends with the new headlight assembly. as for the grill i think the 2008's have a taller grill so again i would think it might be a prob doing a swap to a 2005.

no they will not fit, among other changes is the upper part of the bumper under the lights has molded round sections for the bottom of the lights to set in. pre 08's bumpers were all straight lined on top.
the grill is also a little wider
