I'd cover it. From a design stand point, it wouldn't look too good unless it's either a 6-71 or an 8-71 roots style blower protrudes from the hood like an old school muscle car. Plus by it being covered people won't know exactly what you're running under there other than a diesel. It gives it somewhat of a sleeper look to it if you can catch my drift my man. But of course it's really entirely up tp you, that's just my opinion. It's nasty looking though (in a good way). I wouldn't race it.

Can you imagine a little Honda S2000 pulling up next to that saying lets race. that's like bringing a knife to an Uzi fight. I'd pay money to see that. It would be hilarious to say the least.

leave it out, you can cover it later if you choose to do so. it isnt going to hurt anything... i have seen larger things poking out of a hood on a dd, thats not gonna hurt you at all!

True. I wish I could've taken pictures of what I found at car show down in tennessee. I can tell you what I saw but the dude wouldn't let me take pics of what he had sitting down there. A Prostreet S10 with a blown 572 BBC and a Prostreet Ranger with a 429 Boss installed. I needed a smoke after seeing that, and no they were not street legal either. Damn it I say. I wonder why he wouldn't let me take pictures? probably because he wanted to keep certain things under wraps.

Stick it out.. theres no reason to go for a sleeper look when you have that many stickers on the side. plus you can cover it later.

OK, I hated the way the wiring looked before, so I yanked all of the OEM Ranger stuff out, and Bought a Painless wiring kit. Everything works now, and it looks a million times cleaner under the hood. For the first time ever, I have brake lights. Tomorrow, I "SHOULD" get the right yoke for the drive shaft, and honestly, if they finish it early enough, I "COULD" have video tomorrow night. Here is a before and some after shots. I like it much better. I have been accused of being **** before. LOL

Before:



After:

Could it be a Christmas miracle? Could this actually be the yoke that doesn't exist? Could the final piece actually be here?



Oh yeah, and in celebration, I bought myself a present.
