So what's going on with the hood? You're not going carbon fiber are you?

The rest of the truck looks GREAT though!

If the guys from "pimp my ride" could see you now, they may just have to give you a job! ... I can see it now, instead of a "Yanko" or "Chip Foose" car, you could get a "Tree Root" ride ....

Keep the pics coming!
