    you gotta put a k&n on and pray for sun duhhh. Oh and when you wash your truck you have to wait 2 days for the filter to dry.
    I like the "customer testimonial" and question 2.

    What does the sport/pro hood cost compared to that?

    About the same if I'm not mistaken. Either one you'll need to get painted.

    Rule 1 of owning vehicles: never, ever, under any circumstances, buy aftermarket body parts.
    Rules 2-10 of owning vehicles: refer to rule 1.

    Tell me again how much air is going to "ram" into the hood at that location :popcorn:

    Cause last time I drove in the rain the drops were sitting pretty still on & around my hood scoop.

    This is correct. I can open up the vents on my g8 hood and not a drop makes it in the engine bay.

    Mall landscaping pin stripes.
    The OE hood looks better, IMO.

    Hah, learned that one the hard way. Fiberglass especially. I still have nightmares about the almost $1k I wasted on panels alone (for a different car). I still have the panels too, they are a monument to my failure that taunts me every time I go into my storage room.:rofl:

    Only exception I make is for plastic/ABS lip spoilers on cars. Not really applicable on trucks but for stuff like this:
    [​IMG]
    That lip is an ebay special. The secret is they use the same exact molds but skip all the proper mold release steps so what you get is a mangled, warped piece of fuck. Well, luckily since it's not painted a heat gun and some patience (and a lot of binder clips) is all you need to fit it back into a normal shape and make it look just like the one that costs 3x as much. Since they are sometimes sacrificed to the curb gods anyways, you're still ahead of the game.

    I work for a leasing company, and one of our customers replaced the front bumper cover on their leased car without telling us. He put on an aftermarket bumper cover, then traded the car in to us. I leased it to a good client of mine. He called and said the side of the bumper was popping out. I sent it to a body shop that did something with the clips to make it better. A year later, the lower grill popped out on the highway. To make a long story short, I am paying $600 out of MY pocket to make it right, and put a factory front bumper cover on this guys car. All to save a couple hundred bucks by the first owner. NOT WORTH IT

    Guess someone should have done a better lease return inspection.

    The client was good at hiding it. It looked good until it popped out. He also traded it in to us instead of turning it in through an inspection process, since he came out early. We bid cars over the phone since we deliver our cars to our clients, so we rely on a salesperson to check the car over instead of a used car manager. Not a perfect process, but works for us.

    Yup. I had aftermarket motorcycle fairings quite literally rip in half from wind resistance at a mere ~160kph.

    The last time I bought aftermarket body parts was a set of running boards for my last SUV. Reviews were all fantastic, tons of positive feedback, "guaranteed OEM fitment" advertised by the seller, etc. etc. Tried to install them and they stuck out a damn inch (from where they were supposed to be) in a few spots. Ended up having to deal with all of the fun that's involved in the eBay return process. After promising a refund and receiving the item back, the seller wouldn't reply my emails or calls, so I had to get eBay to do a charge back. Never again. OEM or bust.
