    Why do you want a Cowlhood/hoodscoop??? is your current aircleaner not clearing your hood ?? or is it for the "Cold Air"

    mostly for looks....but the cold air would be good.....my hood looks like crap so what should i do with it....paint some flames on it?or bondo a hoodscoop on it and maybe make it functional unless if i can find a cheap hood if u can point me in the right direction

    I'd fix it . back to stock it would be good practice for further body repairs

    Dont put thos cheasy plastic scoops on it. I laugh everytime i see one on trucks. If you look closely you can see that gap betwen the body, they only look good from a distance.

    Or you could make one. Yes, this is the thread I've been waiting for... here's my pics. Some of yo have probably already seen it. It's bolted on. I wouldn't recommend bondoing anything onto the hood of a truck, it will crack when you shut it. And YES it's funcutional. Not too practical though, took a little bit of practice to learn how to drive with it on there. But I got it down good now. I've actually been contemplating remaking it into a cowl style scoop which would make it about 3 inches shorter. It's only 8 inches tall ( I know it looks taller).
    Edit: It looks a little better with the top on.

    Yes, it's a functional cowl induction all steel hood with all of the factory bracing underneath. I will post some pics of the truck painted soon.
