    I really like the look of curved glass hoods! I like the "slope" look from up around the cab area. My question is... what would it take to make a curved glass hood, fit my straight glass cab an look good?! Thanks in advance for any thoughts, opinions, and advice!

    If your truck is 2005 or older, it has a cowl that the curved glass trucks don’t have. 2006 and newer flat glass models don’t have a cowl (and don’t look right to a purist like me). You’ll probably be spending a lot of $ on a custom hood to get the look you want.

    Ive seen quite a few flat glass trucks with the curved hood. Most I think are newer though. I haven't been up close to them. Mine has the straight hood on my 98 flat glass.
