The only truck unpainted CF hoods belong on are SRTs, other than that I mean there's some really aggressive looking hoods out there so if painted woud look amazing on any rig. With carbon fiber hoods the fitment is far superior compared to fiberglass.
Couldnt have said it better myself... the idea behind carbon fiber is to lessen weight first then the way it looks, take for example the numerous super cars that have carbon fiber painted bodies
