2012 Front end or Raptor for your 7.3 Superduty

If given a choice would you put a Raptor front end on your 7.3 truck or go with the 2012 front end? I will be doing a 2010 conversion here in the next few weeks and another 2012 front end after that. Here are some pics to help you decide. Both of these trucks in the pictures are 2000 model F-250s. I haven't dug into the Raptor conversion as of yet, but should be very close to an F-250 front end. The Raptor is 7" wider then the standard F-150 I believe.

I would be curious to see that "raptor" grille, black on a black truck... just the grille, I might like that.
