I am getting ready to get a good hood and have a few questions.

What's the best price you have found and where?

How long did it take to come in?

How much prep work (sanding and filling) did it take to get ready to paint?
I have seen a lot of fiberglass parts that were pretty rough and some almost ready to paint.

How is the fit and how will do the latches line up?

Thanks for any input

I purchased mine from truckaddons.com, it was the cheapest I could find. It took about two months to get it, I wasn't very happy about that... The finish was good, I took it to get painted and there were no complaints from them. The fit isn't perfect nor is the latch. But it's close enough for me, I'm happy. :)

It sits a little further forward on the passenger side than drivers. Also, it touches the wiper cowl on the drivers side a little. The latch is about 1/4 off, so it's a tighter fit than I'd like. That's what she said. :D

With the alignment and gaps, can that not be adjusted at the hinges ?


Also found one for about 800.00 shipped. That sound good?

OK , looking at the hood on my 2010. Could you not enlarge the bolt holes in the hinge and use some fender washers on the nuts to get a little adjustment??? Or would that not be enough??

I suppose you could, but I wasn't about to drill into anything. It fits well enough that you can't really notice unless thoroughly examined.

Thanks,
I also checked with keystone, built to order, at least 4 weeks out. There is no way I will have it for Spring Break Nationals in Daytona..

It's ordered . Truckaddons.com sold it for 700.00 delivered. Matt , the salesman, also called the factory to find out what the ram air kit was.
Basically the hood has a duct that channels the air to the air box. The ram
air kit is pretty much just a CAI they sell so if you already have a CAI it gives you the RAM AIR without their kit..

As long as your CAI is an open type (ie. AEM) If it's like the Volant, the lid must be remove.

Do you have to remove the strikes from the old hood to put on the new one. I was told I would but I don't see how..
