Talked to my bodyman today--hood was delayed because he had a Police Cruiser come in that he had to get done, but it will be on the truck on Friday. I'm leaving the truck with him in the morning and he's going to install it and get it all aligned nicely for me. Trust me guys--nobody wants this done more than I do!

If you're there, you'll see it! Just over a week away now. Just keep your eyes open for a camo pop-up canopy up near the rock crawling area (that's where the Rangers were last year).

Wait for it...

Crappy pics (need a new camera) and a dirty truck, but here it is!






Spent about 4 hours trying to get the fit just right after I took these-fit is much better meow. Still working on getting the hood latch adjusted, had to make some new hood bumpers.

Thanks guys---it was a long road for sure, but I'm pretty happy with it for the most part. I got it all aligned yesterday, got the hood latch adusted properly--the gaps are probably better on this than they were on the stock hood! At some point, I'm going to have to reinforce the backside of the leading edge of the hood near the latch, though--it was pretty thin there after all of the trimming and it's cracked already. The fact that a PowerDome is quite a bit heavier than a steel stocker might have something to do with the cracking--bitch SLAMS shut.
No STX, Scotty--Plasti-dipped billet is as close as I'm getting to one of those unless somebody drops one in my lap.

Looks great, good job. I never slam my powerdome hood. I just gently lower it to the latch and then press down on the hood until the latch clicks. I know what you are saying, they are heavy badass hoods for sure. Take care of it.

Looks spectacular. Well worth the wait.
