    Some Mods :) See build thread for details
    No mention of a supercharger in your list so you have not modified as much as possible :)

    Repair the latch or replace the part.

    Or you could replace the hood with a fiberglass one with scoop :thumbsup:

    Hi Ron, I have not modified my truck much, but no one notices.
    Can the latch be welded? A photo may prompt better suggestions. I can't picture off the top of my head what it looks like. I'd go peek at my truck, but I don't drive it in the summer, so it's in storage.

    Pretty sure a local shop could tack-weld it back on.

    Ill take care of it. I know it can be welded, so to be more specific. It was not difficult or a problem to close... I just wanted to know if its a manufacturing defect. Or just my truck. Has anyone else had this problem?

    Probably just your luck. First time I've heard of this problem. Things happen.

    I've never heard of it happening on any vehicle that hasn't been in an accident.
