Hood front and rear fenders.
No fenders, I want to keep the truck looking almost stock; actually do not like the wide look.

Thanks will keep you in mind when I start the upgrade.

Brian, I also left this website, Good fiberglass is like good *****. Pictures dont do it justice. You have to hold it in your hand to appreciate it. Sent price list to the redhead from Canada who wanted product,
never heard from him again.

Guys like to buy cheap,work on making the stuff fit. As you know our stuff just bolts on, saving the xtra work. Go figure.

What do you mean "miss the post"?

Were you expecting a high demand? What do you expect?

Sure the hood looks nice, but it doesn't fit my style of build. In all honesty I don't want my truck looking like a Raptor wannabe

I for one like the look but I also like my Power Dome Hood, the louvers are a little too big, too deep too.
I would like some Raptor Louvers, sized to fit a Power Dome Hood, non-functional would work for me.
The Louvers could have a lip around the outer edge for mounting with pop-rivets, button head bolts or hex heads, what ever method you feel is your style.

Mike, I talked to you about Raptor Style Hood Louvers to fit my hood but have way too busy with things here and in California so I have not had time to do measuring to see if what you have will fit. One thing is for sure I do not want something too oversized or too deep on the louvers.
Just want something in flat black, fade resistance plastic of fiberglass/gel coat to fit the height of the power dome on the OEM EDGE Hood.

The Raptor hood looks great and if I was headed in a complete replacement I would seriously thing on your stuff but right now I am not going that route.

Thanks for building this option, I am sure you will get something out of it.
