Ranger Hood Question

Has anyone ever put a 01-03 power dome hood on a 99 ranger?

does the hood fit any mods i have to do to the hood does the grille lines match up?

My hood has started to bubble up and rust and i wanted something different, but not too "street car" like.

i would appreciate any kind of help or opinions

It will line up. Even though they are different grille and lights, I believe its the same height

Unrelated to the Powerdome, but your hood is rusting? I thought that 4th gen. hoods are aluminum. If that isn't correct, then when did the aluminum hoods come about?

You said in your original post that the paint has started to "bubble up and rust". Your hood is aluminum.

There's no link in your original post. I had flaking paint on my hood for 3 years before I had it repainted, and it never rusted due to "iron contamination". You were wrong. Just accept it and move on.

Edit: And now that I see what you're talking about in the link, Morris's hood is steel, which is why it rusted.
