If the 97 is 2 wd then its 5 lug bolt pattern. If the 97 is 4 wd then its the same bolt pattern as the 2000, wether the 2000 is 2 wd or 4 wd. If the 97 is 2 wd then the 6 lug pattern can be fill welded and machined to match. Also the 2000 will have disc brakes and the 97 is drum brakes. They need different pressures to work rite. There is a kit to swap from drum to disc brakes, but IDK what it is, or where to get one for sure.
