    The hood is over $1500 alone if you can find one new.

    Do you have more info? I would love to get a V hood at a better price, can't justify $1500 for a hood

    Are you really interested about the v series hood. Because if so I can call the guy when I order mine to let him know another individual is interested, that way he may give me a discount for referring you to him.

    I believe someone else on here did it and they said the o ly difference was there will be a small gap between the hood and the grill. I think it's there no matter which chrome piece you use but it's also not very noticeable.

    swapped my hood early on, no noticeable issues with the change and less than half the cost of what they're up to these days...wow
