Default Hood Scoop, Yes, No?

The past week I've been thinking about how a hoodscoop would look on the truck, Wondering if there are any 2nd gen owners out here who have one? Maybe post a pic for me?

Any opinions on this subject? As far as whether it would look silly? It would be fully functional none of that drill 2 holes and be done garbage..

Tried to do some research on whether any of the 2nd gen xlt rangers came with a scoop, but found nothing so i assume they didn't unless someone has otherwise found something different?

Right, Not that anyones opinion will change whether I do or not, I just like to know what the average "spectator" is thinking.
Sick truck btw

Any opinion as to what might go well with the squared hood, i was thinking something similar to maybe a 03 mustang gt scoop, or even something similar to an older model challenger?

I'm partial to the old Shaker style. Or a Duster scoop.

My intentions are functionality if it turns into stick on I'll shoot myself in the foot before that...

I had one on the pontiac, but i don't see the point on a 2.9l ranger.

Sorry!

Well I mean 1 it would most likely look decent along with the rumble it already creates and it would still be functional 2.9 or not
