It looks great though. Props for the patience to get it right.

I wish these hoods actually fit. They advertise them for explorers, so they should fit....right? I didn't think the ranger and explorer hoods were interchangeable.

I guess I will just have to get a first gen. lol

No Mounty no more.
I've never heard of any fiberglass hood for any car that was just bolt on and paint regardless if it is specifically made for the vehicle.

...because it wont fit a 95-97 either. Read above, they had to do some significant modifications to get it to fit right.
