I was in the junkyard yesterday and there was an 03 edge hit in the front. Fiberglass hood was busted all the hell. I really like the way those hoods look though.Thanks. I never realized those were fiberglass, but it makes sense. Can't be that much heavier than the steel hoods. The aluminum hood on my '99 Ranger had to have been about half what the steel one on the Explorer donor weighed. Certainly explains why the Explorer used a strut system.
