    i have an 87 k5 and for my christmas im asking santa for a induction hood, is it worth it going with the fiberglass from harwood or should i go with the steel from goodmark, i was leaning toward the harwood cause i carry it at my store and i could get a deal on it.

    Stay away from harwood. They are junk, they dont fit right and the warp after a while. Go with either the goodmark if you want steel or usbod for fiberglass. Now to decide metal or fiberglass you have to decide what you do with the truck. If you go out wheeling all the time and flex the suspension alot, of hot tree branches all the time then you need a steel hood. If you just drive it on the street or just play in the mud then a fiberglass one is fine.

    Yup I agree w/ DD. US Body stuff is great. I have always laid off Harwood cause I have heard they the same things. The Goodmarks that I have seen on trucks look good and fit nice.
