I agree, I prefer the amber lights. Not sure why, I don't really dislike the clear lenses but the amber just seems to fit.
Yeah the hood latches are a pain. The regular cab's hood latch is tight, you have to thump the radius on the front of the hood while holding the handle or it just won't open so I feel your pain.20190811_133345

I built this quite a while ago before I even had the intercooler mocked up. It's close, but not quite right. I think the first angle needs to be 90* even and the lower angle where the latch actually mounts needs to be maybe 105-110* to follow the angle of the cooler core. The holes I punched need some adjustment. I could probably make this one work if I had to, but I'm going to try and sneak back over to my old shop and bend up a new one. Then try and get the latch mounted and adjusted.
