Bolt-ons are awesome. They can easily be added to your ride to instantly change the appearance, and are typically budget-friendly. Hoods are the leading edge for your ride and can make a statement for your truck as soon as you arrive somewhere. Wanting to give an '02 F-150 some extra attitude, we contacted AIM Industries for one of its new steel cowl-induction hoods. These hoods provide muscular good looks and also fit very well. It took less than half an hour for the pros over at South County Customs in Lake Forest, California, to install the new hood. Check out the easy install we did, and if your truck needs a leading-edge enhancement, give AIM a call.

From The Driver Seat:W e were impressed with the fitment of the steel hood. It only took one small adjustment to get everything lined up nicely. The gaps are small and the cowl-style induction gives the truck the attitude we were going for.
