    I forget what i was doing at the time (other than blowing more time on the internet), but i came across a fiberglass hood for us 2nd gen guys that i have never seen before. http://mcneilracinginc.com/off-road-fiberglass/Toyota/Tacoma/2005-2009/index.htm
    sarched and couldn't find it posed on the forum previously.

    anyone seen or have this thing? it says it bolts into the stock location. it doesn't say, but if it doesn't have the factory latch system, i gues you'd run it with a set of hood pins. and after that, i gues all you'd have to do is cut the appropriate holes for the washer nozels.

    any thoughts on it's quality? seems like a pretty good price for what you get. after paint, you could have a good looking hood fro under $500. and it's something different than the normal sport hood (though i love how those look too).

    yeah, i'm not crazy about the scoop (stock scoop fits the lines of the truck better, but i like the louvers (that's what they call them). curious to see what it looks like painted and on the truck

    If it just had the gills w/o the scoop it would look way better, imo. It's a bit too EXTREME for me as it is now though.

    i've heard that mcneil glass never lines up well with other body panels

    no matter how much sanding and elbow grease you put into the install
