Hoods - Aluminum or steel?
I got a call from the shop about my truck to ask if i had a preference of an aluminum or steel hood for my truck. Well, I didnt know that they apparantly used both of them during the production run. My stocker one is steel, and i need a new one obviously but they said the aluminum was listed as well. The aluminum one also used different hinges and a hood blanket as well.
Anyone know what the reasoning for this was? Besides weird Ford mid year changes? Did certain models get the aluminum hoods or what? I know Explorers and Expeditions got them, but I didnt know the Ranger got them this late into the model run. (i know around 2000 they used them too, along with the SMC powerdomes on the Edge)
I told him to get the aluminum one if it wasnt too big of a pain in the ***. If too much more is different (hood latches and whatnot) then keep it steel.
