Radiator Support replacement?

I'm thinking about just replacing my radiator support, instead of repairing it...Anyone off the top of their head tell me if it's bolt on/off, or if it's going to require cutting/welding. Removal of parts is not the problem, that's something I could handle myself. Welding on the other hand would be somewhat problematic, since I don't own a welder myself. I've had my bumper on/off countless times but I've never really paid that much attention to it. Any help or answers will get positive rep. Thanks fellas

EM2typeflex is an unknown quantity at this point
Had the radiator support installed by a local bodyshop. Did a real nice job as well.

If you change out the radiator support, might as well convert to 04-05 7.5thgen

I would assume that there are no physical differences between the 01-03 & 04-05 radiator supports, because from what I've read, people said the 04-05 front end conversion is a bolt-on affair. If I do replace the radiator support, I would err on the side of caution and buy an 05 Radiator support
