Sport Truck Direct carries the Reflexion brand of steel hoods. Put one on an 04 last Sept.

Several 04, 05, 06, and a few 07 6.0's
The toy: 05 CC 4x4 SB HD with a few changes.

Considering that the air is drawn into the engine from behind the grille, I don't think you are going to find a truly functional ram air hood (metal or otherwise) that doesn't require some fabrication of parts...

Reflexxion does make one that is metal and vented at the rear. From what I understand with my limited knowledge of such things, going down the road at speed, it should be drawing air into the engine compartment (much like the '70 Trans Am shaker hood did) but it does not connect to the air filter assembly, so that is not a true ram air hood. I have one on my truck and can tell you that at low speeds or idle, it works well to draw hot air out of the engine compartment.

Why don't you just buy that one? The ram-air hood market for a Super Duty is pretty thin and it's not as if you're swimming in options...

i would rather not buy a fiberglass because after a while it will end up deforming and might rattle
