I am pondering having one installed on my Limited. I think it will look great on any of the trim packages, however the cost is the biggest thing holding me back.

Here is my write up for a different thread in which I was discussing this:
As you know can only be factory ordered on the Sport trim pkg for MSRP of $775 and invoice of $659. I had one dealer quote me $1500 and my dealer quote me $1900. My dealer is one of the largest Dodge Viper in the United States so he has a high quality paint guy, which he said he only trusted to do a hood for my truck. Of course neither place wanted to purchase my stock hood off of me, which would help offset the cost.

You guys ever hear of the "junk yard?" Now the salvage yards are even on the web so you can scour your local area or the country.

MSRP of an unpainted Sport Hood is $1095. The cheapest I found on the web for that OEM part number is $872.

that's more like what I figured. I was thinking about $900 or so. A lot of money to throw at a vehicle, with no hop of return on the investment. but still cool looking IMO

In the process of buying one used and having it painted to match/blended. I think it will look great.

Or find someone willing to trade Hoods with you. I'd put a Sport hood on my truck in a heartbeat if I found someone wanting to swap.

I've seen them for $995. plus paint. Not sure if I would trust my dealer to paint it. I've got the Black Gold Pearl, but then again if it was not installed properly, the dealer would be on the hook. I would love one, but I have a habit of trading within 2 years which would make if cost effective. Maybe if I've got this three years from now, I'll order one.
