Default Keep the 04 look or go 01-03

Like the title states. Should I keep my 04 edge look, or go with a 01-03 style edge hood, grill bumper.

I am repainting the WHOLE truck and have to replace the bed, tailgate, passenger front door , passenger supercab door, and fenders. My hood has a couple small dents but fixable. I picked up a 01-03 edge hood and honeycomb grill. I really like the 01-03 hood and grill, but worried that i will "devalue" the truck by putting older nose on it.

What do you think?

Your smoking crack Zach. The 04 front end looks good and so does the 01-03. You cant really tell me this isn't a good looking front end....
