Looks real nice, for a minute I thought you were putting this on an LMM since this is the LMM section. I had to go back and re-read that it's for a 2015.

Any chance a mod could move this so none of the 07.5-2010 LMM guys try to order one of these?

I would hope if a LMM guy ordered one they would know it was only to hang on the wall as art ?

You would think, but people make honest mistakes. Like posting this in the wrong section, it might help members with the newer trucks if the thread was moved to that section?

I'm making it functional... I'm getting all the parts reordered . The hardest part was getting the correct part numbers. I jumped the gun and ordered parts thats were incorrect. I'll post up parts number when i get everything in.. I'm still debating what air box to use. I'm getting this trucks at my work (work trucks) so I can get under there and see if I can fab an oem air box..

I just got my 2017 hood last week. I'm hoping to get it painted and installed in the next couple weeks. I listed the part numbers I used in my build thread (link to thread in my signature) hopefully I got the right parts.

TWIN540, wondering if you ever tried to test fit the insulation from the '15' on the '17' hood before you installed the ducting.

Only thing i saw different is the windshield side of the insulation on the 15 has 1" lip that slides into the hood and the 17 only has the black plastic rivet type of holder . You can drill holes to slide in the black plastic rivets.. I think you could use the 15 insulation on the new 17 hood if you are not making hood vent funtional.

You can also use the weather strip that located at the front of the hood .
