Hood spears...yes or no?
I want something to set my Ram apart....something to take a little of the stock look away but nothing gaudy or over the top. And it needs to be relatively cheap, lol. I like these because they accentuate the stock hood bulge.

Opinions? I would probably order them just like these in black with the "HEMI" cutout.

I love them on mine!

DO IT!!!! Saw a very nice Challenger today with the matte black graphics on it and thought...DAMN I gotta do something like that to the Ram!

I think just the spears will look good on my truck. They make the "war paint" stripe kits that run off of the hood and onto the fenders for the third gens as well but I don't know if I would really like them on my truck. I think the fourth gen trucks with the spears and war paint together look really good but for some reason I am digging just the spears on mine.

I'm planning those after I get my hood scoop on.

I asked a buddy, my teenage son, and most importantly the wife and they all liked them so I ordered them last night. I will update with pics when I get them on. Keep the poll running though as I'm curious to know what you guys think.

Im glad you included a link to them, I was thinking they were those stick on diamond shaped fake vents that people stick on their cars/trucks!! I seen a dude the otherday that had 6 of them per side!!
In your case I totally dig them, it really makes the hood pop and the bulge looks bigger, do it!

Found these on E-Bay

Upstater, that looks great. I don't really know why but I like the war paint stripes on the fourth gens a lot better than on the third gens....maybe it's the slightly more angled look of the fourth gens that blends with the stripes.

Talk about fast shipping.... I ordered the spears Saturday night and they are being delivered today! I'm excited!! Couple of questions...I just, like last week, waxed the hood. What should I use to make sure I cut all the wax off? Will washing in dish detergent and then wiping the area down with rubbing alcohol be sufficient?

Also, anyone had any problems with washing or waxing vinyl? I handwash, of course, so that shouldn't be too rough on them. Would it be safe to wax over them or should I avoid the spears altogether? Thanks!
