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.

Found this on a web site:

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.

Hood

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.
