i can get this hood through work for cost:

what do you think itll look like on my truck?



the reason i ask is because my current hood has solvent pop on it which can be a problem down the road, itll cost me $100 more for that hood painted then to fix my stocker

i personally dont like it. if it was just a simple cowl hood without the weird indents it would look better IMO.

Eh, not the best hood I have seen. The one you have on there now looks better. I would just try for a simple hood scoop if you can find it.

I'm sorry but no. My recommendation would be to remove all of the Goofy chrome off your truck and get the stock hood repainted.
