    I like the look of CF. It shows a certain level of accomplishment for some people. Kinda like the icing on the cake!:)

    Look at those streaks on the hood. I washed it this morning and then rode up to North Myrtle Beach and it's like an insect reunion out on the highway.

    +1 for the stock hood
    IMO i don't think carbon fiber hoods belong on trucks. but to each his own.
    your truck looks great with the stock trd sport hood but i know the mod bug is probably getting to you again :D
    GL with whatever decision you make man

    standing out might be a good thing, personally I hate those hoods, but I think you might be able to pull it off, why not find a place taht makes or sells them, throw a blanket on your hood and just lay it on to see what it looks like then see if you likeit, Who knows you might love it. Either way you'll know for sure

    Not sure how it'd look on your white truck, but I think that pic of the red one with the CF hood looks pretty cool.

    I love carbon fiber, have installed every CF part possible on my Honda 919, rear hugger, front fender, exhaust, side panels, sprocket and alternator covers, rear set heel guards, tank protector...

    I say either way. I think it could look real good with the carbon fiber, especially with a little custom paint on it. Stock it looks good too though. One thing though- if you do it, what are you doing with the white sport hood? I'd like to have one on my truck.....

    stock, for now
    if you dont want to do the CF hood, I think it would look hot if you just painted the scoop black:) Not ricey and very subtle

    You got the hood scoop on your hood now? I would go with the C/F hood so I can buy the one you got now with the Hood scoop.
