Saw this on the Toytec website. I was figuring it was swapped from a 2002 4Runner, but there is no way it would line up with the grille/headlights.

I'm new, so dont crush me too hard.

Is this hood custom, or is it available online?

Thanks

not the greatest detail shot, but to me it looks as though it is a Glass works fiberglass hood.

Is that one functional at all? You pick that up off of ebay or something? I have leaned towards getting a hood scoop and having it nonfunctional just because I like the look. I know it isnt necessary and a lot of people bash on people with hood scoops but I could care less.

I like the look of the 2002 Limited 4Runner hood (with scoop).

The more i think about it, picking up a spare hood and glassing in a scoop is not a bad idea.

I like the glassworks hood, but DIY may be cheaper, since you'd have to paint it either way. The trick will be finding an OEM 02-04 hood locally for a decent price.

danstoy your hood looks awesome, is that the glassworks, or custom moulded onto your OEM hood?

That looks real good, do you have any pictures of the process. This might be something I think about sometime but isnt really on the "necessary" offroad mod list.

Hi Danstoy, glad to see you finally coming over from TRD O/R. You did a good job with your scoop. I was thinking about getting a pair of fumctional hood louvers for mine just because it would be easier. I would like to know more detail also about how you incorporated your scoop. That's one clean job and nice looking. You truck is clean too!

i never did that type of mod before so thats why i bought 2 hoods i cut the scoop out first i just drew a center line and measured out from there s o it would be easier to center on the truck hood, iuse a cut off wheel and a stright edge to cut it out and seperated the braces , then laid it out on the hood, traced it cut it a 1/4" short, used a flange tool, popped holes all around the edge, welded it in and finished it.

i was going to take pics but once i got started i forgot to take them:rolleyes:

Dan that looks incredible.

What scoop did you use? From a 2005-2007 Taco or 4Runner, or a 2000-2004 4Runner?

Thanks
