    Great Forum.
    Question:
    I have the fake hood scoop on my 08.
    The sun glares on the raised portion behind the scoop just right to blind me, often enough to be frustrating.
    Do any of you have this problem, or have driven non fake hood scoop tacos and not have this problem. Is there a difference?
    I'm seriously thinking if painting the top of the scoop flat black.

    Welcome to TacomaWorld from Rhode Island. I have a non scooped hood and havn't had an issue with glare from the hood..... But my commute usually takes me West in the morning and East in the evening so that might help a bit :D

    Good luck!
