It will fit and work just fine with no drilling or modifications needed if you are only doing the body work, tub, grill, fender's etc.
There are some frame and skid changes between the two different years, but nothing that should affect you unless you get a 98.
The 98 has shorter grill snubbers that sit on a bent piece of flat sheet metal that wraps over the frame. You will need the snubbers from a 98 or remove the little platform from the frame.
