    You know if it wasn't so far I'd come smack you about that hood!
    Get a 81 up hood and modify the cowel and it will work without the fenders.

    if you cut the curved edges of the hood off and painted it black, it would not be near as noticeable, i will take care of it as i am taking care of the blazer for you /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    Jealousy rears it's ugly head again!! /forums/images/graemlins/wink.gif Everyone is mad 'cause they didn't think of it first. The hood works and fits really well(now)....that's the whole point of using it....everyone has a K5 with a Chevy hood! We'll be taking orders soon.......

    J/K. I like the taper and look of the jeep hood, and it'll hide the frontend tubes.

    Re: Did I trim enough for 33\'s? haha, new pics of Capn

    OK, you asked for it. Here come the questions. The hood... is off a CJ? How wide is that section in the middle? It doesnt look that bad I dont think. I had a buddy come by last summer when I was toying with the idea of major body mods, and he actually suggested that very thing. I thought he was nuts, but hmmm.....

    It's off a rolled YJ. We straightened it the best we could and widened it 12". I think the section in the middle is 14" so it would overlap sufficently. Got the hood for 20 bucks, and everything else was free in the auto body class! Just another low buck mod for me.
