    I just picked up a 2011 TRD Sport Access Cab in silver this week. I love the truck, but don't really like the scooped hood. It's not enough of an issue that I'd spend much on replacing it, but if a swap is possible, I'd consider that.

    If I found someone willing to do so would I need to worry about anything like the model or trim level in terms of compatibility?

    I assume the year could vary, but I wouldn't want a replacement hood that was in less than mint condition so that probably rules out anything older. I figure I could trade someone with a 2012 and it would fit, right?

    I assume an exact paint match is a bit of a gamble and we'd have to get together to see if it worked.

    Any other thoughts or things I should be thinking of? Like I said, it's not critical, just something I'd do if it were pretty easy.

    Thank you for the time and the forum. I've learned a ton here.

    As far as I can tell everything from '05-'11 is the same with the hoods. I have not had a look at a '12 yet though.

    I'm in the same boat with my hood. The scoop is annoying but not a real "issue"

    I have a black 2012 DB. I would love to swap hoods. I wonder if they are interchangeable between 11 and 12. I'm in NJ BTW.

    wat?
    the mounting is probably the same, but there are different body lines headed to the grille, IIRC.
