After a considerable amount time of researching I ended up going with **********s and NRG Innovations Hood and Deck.
My experience with **********s was exceptional. Great service and fast shipping.
Overall quality of the hood and deck is VERY good. I was impressed with the quality.
This is not a 15 minute installation, it took me about 8 hours for both. After doing it once the 2nd time would half the time.
There are a lot of very precise holes to drill on both the hood and deck. And I mean precise.
If you install either of these, do it right and transfer over all stops, bumpers and guards, etc..
Aligning the hood took some time to get it right. The fit of both the hood and deck are dead on.

Now the big deal is going to be the paint for both the deck and hood. It will definitely be a first. I’m having a graphic artist do some pretty cool graphics.
I did paint the silver hood vent grills black and will be replacing them prior to painting.

Some pictures before painting…
