    Mocked up to see how it would flow.

    Thanks, man, the good thing is most people who don’t know about these trucks won’t even notice the difference. I showed my brother who has had these trucks over the years and he didn’t notice. I asked him what’s different? and he said something is I just don’t know right now.lol

    Plus I never wanted to be like everybody else. In my opinion if you’re going to modify cars then they should be done to your personal taste so that when people see it they know it’s your ride.

    Yes! I did that years ago on my first pickup and you are right no one noticed.
    But I knew that it was just right and helped the look of the truck. Good Job!

    Looks great! You have more guts than I do, if I would have tried that I would had to throw away two hoods.

    Some blending is what makes Bordeaux wines so good, if it's good for the grape it's good for the hood!
