Aftermarket Hoses

Not sure where to post this but thought i try here.

Anyone replace all their under hood hoses (Radiator, Heater etc) with SS and heavy braid hoses (Mr. Gasket, Cool Flex or the ones 3rd Strike sells) to get it that custom look.

If can post pictures of your engine bay and where you got them from that would be great.



Thanks.

I replaces some on my 04 with CoolFlex. They look good but are a PITA and at least on my 04 you couldn't check your power steering fluid because of the closeness. I had tried the braided sleeves before that and wasn't happy with them either. Silicone is the way to go.

Wow thats clean RANCHER. Thanks for sharing.

Cool. Gotta see if Duane carries some hood dress kits and nice silcone hoses.

Check with Art at Henson too (800-530-5337). Always a good idea to shop and compare prices. Someone posted something about silicone hoses not long ago. A much better price than is normally found. Can't search for it now but will try to later.

Thanks for good words.....my 08 is still a work in progress... Mirrors under the hood along with lots of blue LED's. Older picture..

Don't forget to latch your hood before taking off Doug

One little mistake and you never live it down.

Kay9...I don't know if you do shows or not but if you are thinking about getting into that remember the engine is worth 100 Points. It is also one place that a small investment can make a big difference. Let me know if I can help with anything.

Shows would be nice but mostly just to give her a nice make over after 112k miles.
It would be nice to have the hood open at GTG's though. She runs great but kind of an eye sore.
