    2001 Freightliner Classic XL. I want to replace my original hood soon because it has water damage and "droopy" fenders.
    Does anyone have experience with aftermarket hoods? ie Jones Performance or other brands in regard to fit and finish?

    I saw one several years ago the fenders and headlight mounts were made out of plywood.
    Fully custom.

    The Jones hood is much better. It’s thicker, and heavier.
