Don't know what you mean by air induction style? the one i'm selling is early model. i put a later model "hump" hood on.
What I have is probably the same thing you changed to with the single hump and air inlets at the rear of the hood. Pic attached. The hood I bought has two "bumps", one one each side. So I'm planning to cut out the rust on the front section and patch with metal from the two bump hood.

Late model Pig hoods can be extremely hard to find in nice shape - they are weak and tend to dent. I have noticed the glue bonding of the braces to the hood sheet metal can pop loose, too - I reglued mine with a urethane adhesive (PL-series from Home Depot).

The claim is that the late model hoods have the 'power bulge' for the 2F air cleaner. I have seen early hoods put on pigs with late style 2F engines, and the engine still cleared the 2F air cleaner.

I like to use the term 'power bulge' just because it should be worthy of guffaws and outright horse-laughs among those who know the output of a 2F.

So on Sunday I got the side marker lights that John (80lolux4x4) gave to me, put on the pig. Thanks again John. The installation did involve a little cutting to get the lights to fit over the fender. But, in the end they looked pretty darn good.

Looks great Zach. Let us know what you did with that expensive gear oil you got at the holiday party...

Well, I replaced the oil in the transfer case, and what came out of it looked pretty bad and there wasn't much of it either. But I did run into a problem with the transmission. The drain plug was so tight that neither me or my dad could get it out. I think the problem was that we dont have a large enough box end wrench and I can't get the correct leverage with the socket. If anyone in the Evergreen area has the right wrench, I think it is a 25mm (correct me if I am wrong), it would be wonderfull if I could borrow it long enough to do a gear oil change. Thanks.
