hey that hood looks to be an easy fiberglass fix, just fold over and sand... but repaint is where it hurts...

IIRC those that do the edge hood swap on the 01- usually have to cut the edge of the whole hood so it sits flush, so, you might could get away with it?

30 bucks is a steal for that hood IMO

hell 20 bucks is a steal for a stock hood


if anything you could probably turn around and sell it for twice that

The damage on the hood isn't all that bad at all.....did I read that right? $30 for the hood? GET IT!! You can fix it yourself using some fiberglass bondo stuff....you can get it almost perfect, then drop it off to the painter to finish it up and BAM! you've got a powerdome hood. I highly suggest spending the little bit of money, learn bodywork on fiberglass, and possibly even spray it yourself. DO IT!!

NO cutting or trimming needed to fit the 98-00 or 01-03 2wd grilles.....fits like a glove.

Oh...and if the flares are in 'okay' shape, I'd totally grab those and throw 'em on your truck.

After hitting a pheasant I had hood damage very similar to that. I fixed the damage to the hood for the cost of bondo and had it resprayed for $100. For $30, you bet your *** I'd be buying that hood!

I'd grab those flares too. They're pricey and if you don't want them someone else will, like me for instance, I need a rear passenger side flare.

Why the flares? They don't have those stupid built-in mudflaps, and they are all around a better looking flare to me, as well as many many others. I don't like how the bodyline is carried into them. Toreador4x4 and Redneckstone both have Gen4's like you, and both are running Gen5(01-05) flares on their trucks...If I ever owned a Gen4, I'd be rockin' Gen5 flares. They'll bolt...err...they'll snap right into place of your old ones.
