    I've seen a growing number of TRD Off-Roads with swapped on Scoop Hoods.

    So I was just wondering how many TRD Off-Road people either have or want the scoop!

    Or maybe TRD Sport guys think it should be something exclusively for the Sport?

    I have a Sport, love my scoop, I don't care if the TRD Off-Road's have them.

    I miss the scoop on my sport. It's too bad I couldn't get one on my OR without buying one. Oh well, maybe sometime down the road I'll get one.

    If it was functional yes. Cosmetic no. So that is a NO.

    Eskewp. They add like +15 hp right? I had the option to swap hoods with a guy in San Diego, then I read about the glare issue, so I passed. I don't need the extra 15 mph anyways.

    It would be nice if was actually functional.

    I do like the looks of the skewp, but I am a believer of function over form.

    I'd mount an led in it to make it so.

    speak for yourself!!!! a non functional skewp?.... you can put it next to chrome shit, stick on vents, spinners, low pro mudders, deep dish wheels, fake dual exhausts, spoilers on tonneau covers, block lifts, puck lifts and I'm sure theres more that can be added to that list!

    the ONLY reason a scoop is reasonable is to cool an intercooler or if the factory designed it to cool engine bay temps.

    What's wrong with spinners? Especially the walmart ones.
