    Where'd you get it? How much did it cost? Was the installation hard? I want one soo bad. Makes your truck look a lot bigger. I like the look a lot.

    I picked it up at a wrecking yard just north of Edmonton (Westlock AB). I paid $200.00 for it plus $50.00 to have it shipped to Vancouver. A friend of mine who works at a dealer body shop did the install and paint for about $450.00. I then managed to sell my old hood for $150.00. So after the smoke cleared it cost me $550.00 to do everything including the cost of the hood, paint, install & shipping. The HD hood is a direct fit so if you have a few friends it doesn't take much to install it. Here is a link to where I found my hood. You're looking for a 01-02 2500HD hood with option code HVY.

    Looks good!! Would the HD grill fit in there, or are the bumpers different to allow this?
