Need some hood opinions

If I start a mobile detailing biz, my truck will need to be a rolling advertisement of sorts for the quality of my work and so it'll need to stand out. To that end, I've been thinking about a cowl hood since you don't see all that many of them on SuperDutys but I'd like your opinions on cowl hoods such as THIS ONE. Yes, I know, the "justification" of my truck as a rolling ad is pretty shaky, but it's enough for Mr. VISA to start straining at my wallet again...

I like the options.

If the truck is done well then the truck could look really good. Get one. Have you looked a a Cervini cowl hood?

I really like how the Cervini cowl hoods look, especially with the wider raised area, but they're a little spendy (unless I was able to find a place selling them w/less $$$ for shipping).

I think they look good.

There is a guy in my neighborhood with a 6.0 F250 with the GTO style cowl induction, it looks pretty cool.

I say go for it!

Thanks--that looks REALLY good. If you don't mind me asking, how much did you pay for the paint/install and did you need to "adjust" the hood with a BFH/portapower for it to fit or was it truly a bolt-on?

I need to go talk to the body shop in town to see what they would charge for painting/installing a hood. I was a little concerned that the raised part of the hood might be too narrow but your pics helped me to see that it's just wide enough to be proportional and look right w/o being as wide as the center section of a Cervini hood.
