Yes get rid of them. If you want a scooped hood, buy it that way. But for the love of pete, don't mold them into your stock hood.

Dang man. Post more pics of your truck. That thing is cool. I would dump the scoop. Even if you mould it in it's still gonna be the same scoop taped onto the minivan I saw at the gas station yesterday. It wasn't pretty.

I dunno, I kind of like the scoops. It gives it something very few others have.

But it fits good and doesn't look like it's taped on.

get a hood that has real scoops... no offense at all... but those kinda make it look cheap, and your truck is definitely not

I say no. But that's just me. It's your truck & your decision!

I say leave them on there. Some trucks look good with them and some dont, but yours seems to be one of the ones that look good.

I vote that you keep them however I think that you should mold them in and make it functional (Sp?)

Yuck, I hate fake hood scoops. I hate fake anything though. I'm having my powerdome hood raised three inches and having the rear cut out. Fully functional cowl.
