2013 Sport Hood Scoops - billet
 
I purchased a 2013 Ram Sport Crew Cab in Deep Cherry Metallic. The flat black hood scoops are driving me nuts. I think they would have looked so much better chromed. I am trying to locate billet ones, does anyone know of a company making these? Thanks

Check into getting them Plastic Chromed. I have no idea what it would cost but it can be done.

Duplicolor sells a chrome paint. http://www.summitracing.com/parts/sh...FYtDMgod6goABw I don't think it would work on bumpers but the Sport hood "intakes" are tucked away. Might be a way cheaper solution then plating and way, way cheaper then a custom billet job.

I have the sport hood on my '12 and the fake scoops do get to you after a while. I've contemplated taking the truck to a body shop and seeing if they can customize something functional. The fact that they don't "do" anything annoys me more than their color.

Why not? If you watch the show GEARZ with Stacey David he did a 2011 and made it functional by cutting the inserts out, kinda like Dodge did on the new challengers. I am asking because I have not looked at one in person, but if I can cut them and make them work I have thought about it.

LOL AT STACY DAVIS ya go ahead and cut them out unlike the dodge challengers that have a spot for the water to if you do this on the ram the water is going to just go on your motor and all the electronics i did the same thing he did and well it lasted 3 rain showers then i bought new ones and did lights in them. Reason i laugh at stacy davis is because that show is 99% advertisements and oh ya he said he was putting a tuner in the truck before a tuner was released got alot of shit for that he did
