I have an accessory addiction - Which do you think looks better?

    Hey guys - I have a horrible accessory addiction, but I love every minute of it. :glasses:
    It will be a while before I make this happen (if I do at all), but wanted some opinions about these hoods.
    I've always sort of wanted to get a cool hood, and I think I found potentially what could end up on my truck. Which do you like better?

    I like the top one. I was going to get that exact hood. I havent ordered it because I know it will sit around and I will never get a chance to get it in the paint booth!

    I'm just so torn I really like them both. Enkei how have you not been in the ROTM race....? Did you make your ram air functional?

    The ram air hood looks better on the NNBS trucks, IMHO.

    A piece of advice: Avoid fiberglass; get a steel hood.

    Surreal, do you know of any manufacturers that make steel hoods?
    I've looked at RKS and cervini and both were fiberglass. I was wondering about the fiberglass actually and was hoping someone would comment about it.

    Enkei do you have any issues with yours? It looks awesome, love your ride. Yours too Surreal, but I think I've told you once or twice :glasses:

    The hood from Cervini's is open in the front to cool off the motor.. As in the 2 Co's that build Fiberglass hoods for the GM trucks Goodhood and Cervini's , Cervini's is much better of a fit and better built. As for Steel For the newer body style Goodmark and reflection are 2 Co's that make them but the Ram Air's are NOT open...

    - - - Updated - - -

    The steel hoods are going to disappear It costs Thousands to tool for a steel hood and the return on making them is getting too high The fiberglass can be tooled much cheaper so that is what you are going to see more of..

    As for my hood No problems in 4 1/2 years..

    Mine is fiberglass... have had it on for a year. Only issue was that one corner was slightly damaged from shipping... I had no problems repairing. I do not see any issues with the first fiberglass... they are lighter and weight for weight stronger than steel. You just want to be sure you prep them correctly before painting is all.

    I like the top one more only because I tend to see the bottom one on older model trucks. I think my dad had a hood like the bottom one on his 1988 S10. The top one, IMHO, gives the truck a little more attitude.
