The whole point of carbon fiber is for weight reduction or if it's vented it helps regulate the heat from the motor/bring in more cool air. Had a carbon fiber hood on my old car and the weight difference was huge! OEM hood weighed 45 lbs and the CF hood weighed 13 lbs.
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.
