need i get started on this one?

Post some pictures of your products painted for these people, or close down shop and give up now. i really hope that ^... isnt how you run a buisness.

Now if you get together some detail shots of body fitment, and it painted, ill be most likely ordering one through a dealer of mine. but no reason to be a snob.

No, not painted. still black, which I like. I still have not rec'd the bill for mine, I sure it will come next week=now. I think Gelcoat blk or ford white for hood pins were $320.00 and with the additional hood latch fiberglass bracket part it probably more. You can have a local shop paint to match your color.

front bumper info

I guess the reply on the front bumper/Valance you never got. The picture is what Mike calls a Valance and sells it for $160.00 in gellcoat black or ford white.

some finished pics/painted

I posted some finished pics in the thread on fiberglass fenders #25 , the reason I have not painted my black hood is I may change to white, with a full body kit from Mike McQueen.
I like the quality and finish this shop puts into it products. thanks for looking.=brian

As I have said before there are feature of some styles that lppk good and they should be made for the Ranger so this is a step in the right direction.

The hood is made for a Ranger and looks good, not like some of the add-on, wide fender’d, what ever you want to call them.
Nice Hood. looks different.

I have the Power Dome Hood, was wondering if this guy will make a Scoop add on for an existing powerdome.
I was thinking on painting my hood so a little bodywork before hand might work.

What is next in this guys bag of parts ?

You can go to my website. mpdfiberbodywerx.com es894x4 obviously you have different taste,which
is fine. What have you built lately? Id love to see something you like.

There are pics on here with all the parts on Kyle Larsons truck on the "fenders" thread. He seems to be satisfied.

Scrambler, this guy is me,I am capable of dealing with people in the first person. Give it a try. We sell a kit every three weeks on average so something must be right. There is a new yellow one on Dezert
Rangers in the truck section, check it out. And thanks for the intrest we try to please.

And so am I !
BUT I did not know you were here… ! lol

Your e-mail, at least I think it was from you, a response from THE web site, stated the scoop/vent area is large and would require a lot of work.
I guess it will be easier to use the whole hood then sell mine.

In strength are these hoods, with the OEM Latch, as strong as the ’03 Power Dome Style Hoods ?

They are direct replacements correct ?

And are the scoops/vent openings opened up when purchased or closed ?

Thanks for your time answering these questions.

Scrambler 82, The hood is a direct replacement. It comes with pockets for the hood hinge bolt up
which has 1/4 20 stainless steel inserts already molded in. The hood can be made with a material
insert (parabeam) for $30 xtra which makes it stronger than stock hood and half the weight.

Also we cut the louvres so that rain will run off without going in the engine.(a direct hit cant be stopped)
The strength to weight ratio is unbelievable.

mike, you said they are stronger then stock but what about the latch? i dont wanna use hood pins if i dont have to. i know i can purchase subtle ones that screw instead of a cotter pin but im still not a fan.

i will be calling you when im ready to purchase however i have to wait a little bit for any larger purchases like this.

thanks.

Yes the louvres can be left shut, And the 03 and up has a the latch position under the hood to just swap your "U" shaped (2 bolt) latch onto it, not a problem.

Excellent, thinking on it ?

One last thing, how thick is the hood ?

You mentioned half the weight, not worried about weight just the durability.

Any specials for the Ranger Site.

Its strong enough to stand on if you get the$380 model,(top of the three different layups) this incorporates a material,(parabeam) which is hell for strong. the $350 hood has coremat, the $320
one is plain fiberglass. All come out of the same mold. The special is if you buy the whole kit.
Hood front and rear fenders.
