    Here soon I am going to be a new owner of a raptor. I am wanting to stick a Shelby hood on it but can't find anything other than fiberglass. Is there steel versions out there? Any info would be appreciated thanks.

    The stock hood is fiberglass. I assume the Shelby is as well given the even lower production numbers.

    You can always purchase a Shelby Raptor from Shelby and have the real deal. Or get a Raptor and have it converted by Shelby.

    All right, I'll bite:

    WHY? There have been literally hundreds of thousands (if not millions) of vehicles on the road through the years with composite hoods and tailgates, and as far as I know that application of composite materials has never been problematic.

    Right. I take it that the factory hood is damaged.

    ^^^Because a Shelby hood will add 24.6 bhp and 31.7 ft-lbs to a GEN2?
    Oh wait, it's 31.7 bhp and 24.6 ft-lbs.
    Sorry.
