This past fall I decided it was time for a change. I decided on a new Duraflex SRT Hood for my 2008 SLT. There were mixed reviews about these hoods, but I took the chance. It turned out GREAT. I then added a Volant CAI that is ducted to the hood scoop to make it functional. That Hemi sounds really mean now! I then decided to finish the black out and debadge the truck. The step bars and wheels were the original from the dealership when I bought it in 2008. So the chrome on the step bars were flaking (as they always do). I ended up having the wheels and step bars Linexed. Very durable and looks great(in my opinion). I left the grill stock chrome for now and am not sure if I will change it. I kind of like the contrast. Let me know what you guys think. I take criticism well. Click Here for Pictures

ought oh..............

You appear to have been bitten by the "Mod Monster". Remember, there is no twelve point program for modification addiction.

Truck looks mighty fine
