Default New Hood Option



Look what I found today... On the homepage for this site they have a 14 R/T done up with a bunch of Mopar accessories.

http://dodgeforum.com/articles/check...o-headed-sema/

Not sure if this vented hood is a new MOPAR accessory or not. Anybody have a clue as to where to get this hood- or is this yet another accessory that R/T owners cannot get like the 22" rims in all the Ron Burgundy commercials... Was all set to buy the R/K Sports Ram Air Hood in carbon fiber until I seen this...

By the way it was described as a "unique" vented hood, I'd say it's probably a one off since the rest of the stuff was described as Mopar Performance parts.

Looks like a stock hood with vents cut in it and some vinyl graphics. You could have that done cheaper than the cost of a new hood painted and installed.

That looks great, but we have seen this graphic design before "tow hook" they used it on a orange Durango for the 11-13's. Love the side vented hood and almost pulled the trigger on doing this vinyl look on mine but then decided to stay clean white on white. Wish someone would make the Ram R/T pickup truck hood for out DD's

The RAM R/T hood is a just a take off of the chally hood. Everyone and their sister has it. Check out the SEMA RAM hood:

The R/K is nice, not a fan of glass hoods though.
It may be my best Option with Ram Air though

The hood does fit really well and makes a drastic change that I love. Would not be my first choice if there were others available but it is the only choice. I am very pleased with the outcome. 40 post up some pics when complete.

My issue with RK hood is it looks like a cheap stick on scoop that has been molded on. For those who want a different looks that's only option unless you go custom.

Ordered up the R/K hood in carbon fiber on Monday... Will take a couple weeks before it is shipped- estimated arrival on 25th of November. In the meantime, I have 22" Gloss Black Viper Repro's w/ Nitto 420S 285/40/22, TPMS, Black Gorilla Lugs & K&N 77-1563KP - Performance Intake Kit arriving this weekend. And just ordered up the MGP Caliper Covers & AAC Oracle Halo Kit. Doing a little early Christmas shopping... Will post up pics once the Hood comes in & I get it everything installed.

Congrats man, lots of fun projects ahead of you. Can you do a good write up on the Halo lights, would really like to do this too, have not seen anyone do this yet, or at least have a good write up on the forums on it.

Cheers

I put them in almost 2 years ago. You will have to cut the lense to install. The glue used doesn't soften when headlight is heated in oven like most headlights. Think I did a write up when I installed too.
