hood scoop

so, i know hood scoops come standard on the x-runners...and i thought that was it, but i see them all over the place on the current design 4x2's, 4x4's, prerunners...what packages include the hood scoop (TRD? SR5?)? or is it an 06+ kinda thing?

just curious

The price of a hood with a scoop is the same as a non scoop hood. The additional cost is the piece that goes onto that scoop forming the opening (plastic grill plus rivits) etc. When my truck was hit by a deer who was j walking, I had the choice of replacing the damaged hood with original or hood with scoop. The additional cost of $180.00 was a bargain considering the insurance co was paying for the hood.

Alot of people don't like the hood scoop but i love them. And TRDeity is right, they are available on the TRD sport models. I have the off road pkg but i would love put the sport hood on my truck. I think it makes it look meaner.

I've seen a thread where the scoop was mod'ed to be functional. Appearance wise, it's on the money.
