Default 2004 - 2002 Radiator Swap???

Ok, I've gotten myself into a big mess with my 2004 Dodge Ram. I had a leak in the radiator which I tried the bars stop leak & radiator putty. Didn't work!!! So then I ordered new radiator online. Installed it no paying a bit of attention to it being different style radiator until it was installed. My dodge had the radiator with the cap on it, new one is off older model like 02-03? It has the pressurized reservoir that bolts to top of it. Because I have limited tools & mechanical ability I decided not to remove radiator & send it back, but to order the reservoir & go that route. Well.... Now I'm at another bump in the road! The bottom of the reservoir has a larger outlet on the bottom of it. I'm not sure where it is suppose to go, because my truck didn't have this outlet on old overflow rank. My purposed idea was to buy a tee, cut radiator hose goin to thermostat install tee & run a hose from bottom outlet on reservoir other small inlet on the tee? Will this work??? I'm pretty close to my 30day warranty running up on parts, also not sure if they'll exchange them after I've installed them? Any help/suggestions would be greatly appreciated. P.S. I already know I'm a idiot for not noticing the wrong radiator to start out with.
