Did you want a functional scoop or just one for looks, because its gonna get very pricy if you want function

The edge hood and xlt hood are interchangable. The only noticable problem is the grille does not quite match up. and if you have a 2.3 duratec motor you'll have to modify the coolant bottle since it hits the edge hood

98-03 xlt and edge are interchangeable. 04+ xlt and and edge should be interchangeable, you just cant cross those two .

putting an xlt hood on a 01-03 truck leaves a thumb sized gap at the top of the grille shell. The gap is about the same size as the gap between an XLT hood and the top of a 98-00 grill shell. Not that bad in my opinion but the edge hood lines up better on an XLT than an XLT hood does.

idk getting a cowl hood when you dont need it bugs the **** out of me idk why. plus it blocks your sight a little because how big they are. idk i think there pointless if you dont need it.
