    Default Wife's new HD hood

    Picked up this hood from a salvage yard - already the same color! I couldn't talk her into swapping the grille and bumper, too, but I think it looks pretty cool as it is.

    Very cool swap. I'd like to do it to my Sierra with the Sierra's HD hood. What is the difference in grills? Or was the HD's a different color?

    Thanks, gang.

    I didn't even get a look at the grille and bumper - she was pretty sure she didn't want them

    There are a few scratches in the paint, but I did a heck of a job polishing the rest of it. Of course, now she wants me to do the rest of the truck. Maybe she'll buy me a nice buffer!
