Default Can anyone suggest a good aftermarket hood?

I have a 2000 ranger with the stock hood, and that fucker dents way too easily. It went through a hailstorm that didn't damage anyone elses vehicles at my place of business, but my hood looks like someone took a ball peen hammer to it. Aditionally, I like the look of the 2004 and later hood with the crease down the center, but it doesn't look like it will fit because of the different grill shape.

Suggestions please?

Yours may have some fiberglass in it, not sure. Mine is super light, and I sat on it one day but jumped up quickly in fear that I would put ass prints in my hood.
