    they specialize in import stuff for one. and it looks weird because the vent in the hood are retangular. instead on curved like stock.

    looks bad on the interwebs and looks bad in person,

    and no not just because it's ugly, but because the fit and finish is terrible.

    I know the normal factory aftermarket places that sell WS6 hoods like I got from certi fit uses stock grills. Fit it's as perfect as OEM but hell it was only $275 with tax so I'm not complaining.

    If you want to go with the Firehawk hood know that you have to mod the front bumper to get it to fit, someone did a good write-up a few months back on what he had to go through to get an acceptable fit out of a stock bumper cover. Grab the hood and bumper cover if you find them.

    my dad and I would prefer this of course, but no one seems to have one to get rid of. He's considering a raptor hood (way down the road likely), but I really love how the ridge on the bumper and the hood are flush with the firehawk instead of the hood overlapping that section of the bumper. Are there any aftermarket offerings? I've seen an old post of one that duplicated the hawk hood but with small round extractors but can't find it now. Any help?
