Default 2011 Ram:Sport Performance Hood Problems

Two weeks ago, was shocked to find a bubbling of the paint on the driver's side corner of the hood --just over the headlight , also had issue with some surface rust , & a little" bubbling" at the passenger side door sill "kick" area.
Showed it to a" Warranty" body shop , after a few pix & a couple of days, they get back to me with the good news that Dodge will be REPLACING the entire Hood, which they tell me is aluminum ,& repainting the "rust" areas Very happy & impressed that they are going to do something with NO problem !!

Was a bit surprised to hear that these hoods are aluminum!
Anyone else out there with similar problems , or am I just fortunate!

A guy at work has a 2010 f150 lariat and where the grill meets the hood it's corroding quite a bit, it looks aluminum also. I thought the sport performance hoods are aluminum and all hoods went aluminum in 2013 on the rams. I believe my 2012 normal hood is steel, but I could be wrong.
