Differences between 97-03 and 03-06 windshield frame

So, what is the difference? It seems all online retailers are showing two different frames. The frame on my 2005 is shot but has good glass...and trying to find a newer used replacement is gonna be tough being it is so new. I have however had several replies offering to sell me 97-03 frames...so will it fit? The only thing I plan on putting on it is the hardtop and a safari top (which I have all the original stuff off my TJ now to swap over for the tops/fancy plastic)

Thanks!

Just interior trim parts is all I found to be different. I swapped a 98 frame onto a 2005.
