Well, i leveled out my truck today and now the plans are rollin! Im not doing a frontend swap or anything crazy, just an SS Bumper(on order), SS rear bumper, SS cladding all the way around, 4/6 drop, 24s, 04 grille w/o bowtie, new smooth bed caps painted black, SS tailgate spoiler, and Denali Interior. Most of this should be done by the end of the year and im excited as hell!

The top of the 04 grille will need to be modified (extended) to match the 06 hood. The SS cladding will need to be modified for both the extra short bed and crew cab. If you find someone who is damn good to do this work it'll look awesome, but if you try and cut costs/do it yourself it'll look like shit.

Dylan-style SS rollpan would look tits, and can't be much more expensive.

I know a couple shops that have done some great work with plastics so i'll definitely not be doing it myself. As for the SS rollpan, the bumper cover costs way less and will save my ass if im ever rearended. I have not priced the cladding yet, but im sure it'll be in my price range after my employee discount is factored in.

Just get a BSER rollpan over on SSS.com. The cost isn't rape IIRC.
That rollpan costs more than the OEM SS front bumper cover! Im definitely sticking with the SS rear bumper cover!

The rollpan is only $300... a steal considering its the only place you can get it and its hand made in VERY limited quantities. How much is the OEM bumper cover... couldn't be that much less.

It's possible to paint over the chrome, just prep it right. Your black/silver birch theme isn't doing much for me, just completely colormatch it. Not only will it look cleaner, it will look better too.

The rear bumper cover costs me less than $200 and the front is just under $300.

And my truck is Greystone, not Silver Birch

I've got an '04 hood I'd trade ya, it needs a little bodywork, but I'd swap.
