It looks like or is very similar to the Ram Air Hood.

I put the bilstein 5100's on myself, had the rims/tires done at 4wheelparts and the exhaust is new as well...sounds f'ing sexy

Here is my 05 64,000 miles, no mods yet, going the 15th to have leveling kit done along with an alignment and a tonneau cover. I would also like to get HID lights and a tuner.Then in the spring I will hope fully find some 7 lug "NICE" rims and tires for it. In the pic with it hooked to the trailer, that is with a load of wood in the bed, need to get a weight distribution set up.

Nice truck! A tuner will really wake your truck up and help your fuel mileage. I went from 12mpg to 15mpg with my edge, with a high of 17.5!
Check Centerline wheels for some nice rims. http://centerlinewheels.com/wheel_deals_list.php

THANKS AK, I have been meaning to get a hold of you seeings we have something in common LOL. I get about 14.2 right now, hoping to improve that and also improve the Chrysler mini van givin me a run for my money. I am getting somethings done sooner than other such as dual exhaust, leveling kit and a spacer under the throttle body (guy guarantees 2 mpg or he takes off and gives money back, what do I have to lose). Thanks on the rims, they are hard to find, will the tuner help if I put bigger rims and tires on to calibrate the speedo? The tuner is in my near future for sure.

Yes. Most tuners will allow you to recalibrate for bigger tires.

Also, given that it appears you tow/haul a bit you'll want to keep in mind that unless you regear, then larger tires will make your effective gear ratio higher, effectively lowering your towing capacity. Going up a little bit won't be an issue, but if you get up towards 35's then you'll notice it when hauling a big camper. Also, once you have the level kit then your rear will actually sit lower during heaving hauling unless you add airbags or extra springs on the rear.

Thanks for the response, and just today while hauling the trailer to storage the thought crossed my mind about rear air bags. I have heard they are not to expensive and easy to install.? As for tires, I don't see myself going much above 33's. Then again you never know
