Pics Hood Black Out kit

Ordered from Viggs Design - need to use a bottle of water and keep spraying the hood as you put the decal on. Use a greas pen to mark where the upper corners of the decal fit on the hood and work your way to the front of the hood and you pull the vinyl off its paper. Keep spraying water and work the bubbles from the middle out.

I think I got them from RDS. Since mine is a 94, I but a yellow bulb in the lower light which acts as my blinker.

Matt,
Good question - boils down to pricing and the fact that I would have to drill the holes for the plate in the hood. since I am constantly screwing around changing things...I may decide I don't like the look any more and remove it. Besides shipping was a lot cheaper. I know the hard core guys are going to say that it is totally non functional as you really don't get any glare from the hood if you are running hellas or other spots on the top. Lipstick on a pig .

I like it and the front of your truck looks pretty cool all-round.

Thank you.. ..though the LRX grille are not the best for keeping your engine cool when you are wheeling. I have to take the grill off sometimes if it is hot outside. I did install High/Low HID lights bulbs which fit into the hellas and are nice and bright! Cost me about $200 for the set up.
