3rd Gen Cowl Hood

Where is the best place to buy a cowl hood? Looking for my 05 CR.

LMC seems to always have inflated prices on body parts compared to other internet searches. Are all these hoods stamped at one factory then purchased by dealers, so fitment is going to be a gamble either way?

I saw Stylin trucks in my searching.

Just wondering if there is a YearOne type vendor for newer vehicles.

Thanks for the link. I like that cowl hood better than the others I have found. It's smooth all the way up the cowl and doesn't have the weird offset at the top like others.

It is fiberglass though. Don't think that will work for me.

I had never found a cowl hood that was smooth all the way across, I'm gonna buy that one on that link for my other truck when I get one for it!

02-08 Dodge Ram SRT10 Hood|Cerviniís I just put this hood on my white 03 truck, fits good, it is fiberglass but it does not flex or wave its solid.

Thanks for posting this. I wasn't going to consider a SRT hood, but for $500 shipped, that's a good deal. The reviews dictate the fiberglass is pretty thick, as you mentioned.
