installed 2012 bed on my 2001 and did full color swap

Relatively new member here. I bought my truck about 8 months ago and the bed was shot. I found a 2012 bed, bumper, liftgate and lights for $1200. Held on to it until I had $$$$ for paint. Since the bed was a new takeoff and the paint was perfect, I thought I would paint the cab to match. And I love white trucks so it worked out.

Had Maaco do the paint ($1500 - 2 stage paint, all door jams, underneath the hood, bondo cab corners and cap). I removed all the trim and door panels, etc.
I think it looks awesome. The brake lights aren't working but I think that is a fluck and I just ordered a new multifunction switch (turn signal stalk, wipers, etc).

Atleast get ya some 05 headlights and then a pair of the 08 mirrors, that won't take long to install those and that'll really give an updated look to the truck. I just did the 05 headlights and I'm looking for a good deal on the tow mirrors

thanks guys. Do you have any idea what type of hood I have?
its a raised cowl type with vents in the back (I guess to let out hot air). It's all steel.
