Looks nice! Could work well. One thing to consider, is that modern vehicles have a OEM flow analysis/design for under the hood. I don't know if this would have a negative impact or that. I wouldn't think it would.

What caught my attention was the platform in back of the pickup on the website. That would be nice to have a safe/sturdy platform sometimes... :)

Our stock hoods are sealed with rubber stripping. If you remove the rubber stripping near the windshield base, the engine bay heat will get sucked out like a vacuum. This will accomplish the same results as those louvers without cutting the hood.

Is that the Sudden Urge Rubber Strip Mod? :) I'll be checking that out...:computern

I don't mind cutting the hood, but there is only room for so many holes.

A well known drag racing trick is to elevate the rear of the hood a few notches to let underhood air escape. But, you don't want to drive around with your hood's rear sticking up a half inch. So, just carefully take that rubber strip out near the windshield base. With the rubber strip removed, you should have a 1/4" to 1/2" gap at the back of your hood, with your hood sitting perfectly aligned with the rest of the truck.

Not to mention it's extremely unsafe to drive on the street with the hood that way. It turns into a guillotine in a frontal crash.

Sudden Urge: I didn't know that!

Yellowmantis: Excellent observation, that's the last thing I want!

Rubber strip may help keep water off the electrical stuff I have mounted on the Firewall; but still, it is worth considering... :)
