So I figure if I'm painting my bee I might as well get my hood as well so the paint matches better I have two options I'm split between the ssk hood which I've seen done or a hellcat hood. I'll attach pictures which do you guys think looks better?
Thanks

Of the two, I like the look of the second hood better, But is it even availble to fit the 2004/2005? The pic is a bad photoshop of a later model hood and grill on a 2006/2007 Ram...

I found the hellcat hood on carid it says it fits. I have seen the srt hoods you think that is better then the ssk? I liked the idea of the heat extraction from the engine bay

Ok, Yup, I found it too, Duroflex;

I might be affected by my dislike for the 2006-07 front end to begin with, but seeing the picture on Duroflex's web site, the hood just looks to busy to me..

And yes, it will fit an '04-'05

So you think the normal srt hood would be best?

It's your Truck! Enough people like that Hell Cat hood for the company to make it, So I don't think anyone will fault you for it if you put it on.

I just like the cleaner look of the SRT hood..

Plus if you want to add some vinyl decals to the hood later, you'll find a good selection designed for the SRT hood already
