Umm I think it came out to about $48 including shipping. I think i saw the option where you could get it color matched but of course then the price goes up. I got it from www.partsgeek.com

I think if i was going to paint any part of the hood I would paint the indentation on the power dome a nice matte black. And I think I'm going to paint the head lights next weekend and maybe even install my smoked cab lights!!

It looks pretty cool black, but it could use some blacked out headlights and clears more than a painted hood.

I was going to say it looks horrible black, buuut, I think it actually works. matches the valence, and some blacked out headlights would definitely help it out. Its a close call between silver or black...

paint the center of the grille black and right under the headlights silver. And possibly the hood after.
