Default Sport Hood

I'm thinking about getting a sport hood with the duel scoops. The hood on my Ram 1500 2010 will not take a magnet so I'm thinking that it is aluminum, I called dodge and he told me that his listing for the 2010 is a steel hood. Does anyone really know if the hood on the 2010 is aluminum or steel, I know that they make fiberglass ones but I do not think I want to go that route. Thanks.

You would know if it was fiberglass, it would weight like 8 lbs.

I have an 2011 Sport with the performance hood and it is aluminum


Found this on a web site:

Sport Performance Hood: Stamped aluminum, dual-scooped hood with molded bezels adds to the forceful appearance of the Ram Runner Kit. (MSRP: $978, Part No. 82211065AD)

Ram Hood with Scoops 
This stamped aluminum hood comes with an E coated finish, ready for paint. Includes hood assembly, non-functional integrated scoops (also sold below separately) and bezels that are paintable. Use your original hardware to install.

))Dig - I've got the OEM sport hood and its metal - a description on my dealership website says Sheet Metal - and it's a $1,070 option without the graphics. (You saw this in my other post - "with or without.") It seems to be same sheet metal as rest of the truck but I can see if it takes a magnet tomorrow if you want.

Dig:

My hood with the dual scoops pictured above is absolutely metal, not fiberglass, but it also is NOT steel - it will NOT attract a magnet while the rest of the truck body - doors, fenders, roof, etc. did. Hope this helps.

Then it must be aluminum, I consider aluminum a metal and Dodge must also if that is how they have it listed. Did you install the hood your self, and did you have to add any type of support to straighten the hood. Also did you purchase it from the dealer. thanks.

My hood came installed on the truck when I bought it. The dealer's online description says it uses the stock hood supports which are "reinstalled." Here is the complete online description..

Add a complete replacement sheet metal Hood with integrated scoop to give your vehicle an aggressive look. Manufactured with OEM materials for a perfect fit and finish. Hoods are either e-coated or primed (depending on application) and include black, paintable bezels. JK and LX vehicle also feature gas assist hood props available
Additional Details: Hood with Integrated Scoops, E-Coated (Ready for Paint); Includes sheet metal hood assembly, non-functional integrated scoops and paintable bezels (original hood hardware is re-installed)
Part Number: 82211065AD
