    Does anyone know if it's possible to replace my standard hood with a sport hood? I got a great deal on my '09 with features I wanted (sunroof, long bed, 4x4, etc), but it wasn't available in the Sport model. I dig the muscle look and would love to change mine out if possible...

    Yes it is, the only difference is the bulge in the hood.

    easy to change the hood. just make sure you have a friend or someone else to help you hold it and take it off, also putting it back on with someone makes it easier.

    Is the clearance and hardware under the hood compatible as well? I'm assuming the hood should just bolt right on, making it look like the sport model, just with zero functionality (looks only). I'm a poser I know...

    Not sure if there are any aftermarket ones. Most people on here who have been fortunate to get a sport hood have traded or found one for sale at a cheap price. An aftermarket one would cost a lot.

    More than likely it's an aftermarket piece.

    It can be offered as a dealer-installed option.

    They asked me if I wanted one installed on mine in between me agreeing to buy the truck and filling out the paperwork... while they were asking me if I wanted the extended warranty... god-like paint plan... undercoating... blah blah blah.

    Yeah, my sunroof was a dealer installed option. Thing is huge and I love it. One bad thing about it is that it won't stay open when the car is off. Would be nice to park and have open access to the environment... Thanks for the help with the hood though. I'll look for one in Internet Land...
