True, but they have the mold already, so why stop making them? I would think a mold would last for quite a few hoods, but then I don't make them.

Re: aftermarket hood options

I spoke with Chad at Black Ops again, he said they were busy filling orders on other products but may reintroduce the anti-venom in a month or two. I just hate that the Medic is such a piece of junk because I think it by far is the most complimentary hood for the WK.

I was on there site today zero jeep hoods, I would buy one if the cost was not so damn high, Like you said the charger hood 599 the jeep hood 899, I think if that company WOULD HAVE put 599 this hood they would have sold a but load of them. All there hoods for other car are priced right but not the jeep one. I will wait for a black ops hood.
