    I don't think thats going to work. Everything is different from cab floor height off the frame to how the hood mounts, I'm about 90% sure that's going to be a nightmare trying to line up.

    I like the smooth fenders of a W9 better than the 379s but I like the overall appearance of a PB hood better than KW

    I saw a guy in Fredericksburg VA with a 387 Pete hood on a T2000 KW. Looked like absolute ##* and there was a giant gap between the cowl and hood but it did fit lol hood latches were ratchet straps

    What is it about the w900 you don’t like?

    I think it’s a much better looking truck other than the cutaway ford pickup doors and don’t care for eithers tight footwell.

    I see some of these big heavy guys come out of them and I wonder if they can even move once they close the door. .

    If you like the style of the fenders on the KW 900 .. why not just pull the fenders off the Pete and get a set of those ugly ### after market fiberglass gangster style fenders all the chrome shop's sell.. those are pretty simular
    Just my opinion .. but it makes me wanta cry to see somebody hack up a 359.. but thats me I guess I'am what they call a purest
