You can't just change the grill from an 05 to an 04 or older truck unless you get the cut grille.

If you change the grill you'll need a new bumper. After that you'll want the new headlights and to use them you need the new harness.

To make all of this possible you also need the plastic header piece that everything ties into.

blah blah blah ... check ebay.

I was thinking about doing the same thing, but all I could find was a grille on ebay that had the mounting tabs moved to fit earlier years, want $300 plus like $40 to ship, so Im gonna start thinking of different options for my front end!
