Thats the first I have heard of that question, why do you need to know that?

Ah that makes sense now, I thought he was saying about 03 and earlier only open or closed.

isnt it Closed for 01-03 because the hood comes down more and open on 04+ because of the new front end style (with the hood further up)?? or am i just retarded?

everything over 04 is closed, the open closed difference only exists in 01-03.

4x4 XLT's and all Edges = open
2wd XLT's and XL's are the only ones that are considered "closed".

while technically yall with 04+ are "closed", their is no other option so you don't have to worry about it.

04+ the xl's and xlt's 2wd have closed because of the horizontal bars going across the middle section, whereas the edge and 4x4s have the center free of the horizontal bars, or open, i beleive its actually the same way for 01-03 as well
