I have a couple of accessories I added. Please ask any questions and I'll help if I can.

So I got my Ford Hood scoop (painted it Shadow Black) and Rear Spoiler (factory painted Shadow Black) put on.

Does the hood scoop seem to help with the hood vibrations while at highway speeds?

Did you try adjusting the black rubber bumper things under the hood? They are threaded and a lot of people adjusted them to fix the play in the hood causing the vibrations.

How does the scoop effect visibility? I found the two bumps on the hood took some getting used to.

I did adjust them. Not an enormous amount of change in the vibration but it is only at higher speeds. Seems the wind gets caught under the rear of the hood located over the wipers and wants to lift up.

Having a Badlands my hood did not have much of a " shake" to it. I suppose it was due to the fact it had insulation installed on the underside of the hood from the factory. See picture belowFrom what I understand other models may not have this.
With the hood scoop installed I have seen no noticable vibration in the hood and that has been at a speed up to 90 miles an hour.

I took a quick picture from the interior view. (No I didn't pull it out of the garage) I don't mind it and my wife actually likes it better for her. So it's just all in what you like, but overall we are very happy with the scoop and the overall look.

Hi, where did you get the gas struts to hold open the hood? I only have the stick...

The hood scoop likes great does the rear spoiler help keep the rear class clean?
