Default Ram Air hood, which brand?

So I'm fixing to order a Ram Air Hood soon, I've heard some fitment issues stories so I'd like your input on which brand is good or not. I'm looking at those brands.

http://suncoastramairhoods.com/ram-a...ood-28004.html

https://www.ramairhood.com/store/scr...p?idproduct=33

So... which one? Or does someone have a GM hood to sell me?

Thanks for the feedback, from my research, it seems Suncoast creates the best hood with the least amount of PITA in fitment. Can someone shed some light on this?

Suncoast, VFN and Glasstek normally need very little "Extra" prep work.

Kevin said that hood went on very well, you can reach him at HPP.

Thanks again, I was hoping to pick the one from fiberpartsconcepts up since I would just drive up there and get it. Save me a hundred bucks but getting the hood from the right brand may save me even more!

Anyone have any experience with fiberpartsconcepts?

I used a harwood r/a hood on my 95 before I went to vfn and the big hood.Harwood was a perfect fit and no filler work blocking only,the vfn wasnt to bad but did need some filler.

I've seen dura flex ones really cheap. Anyone know of any fitment issues with those?
