Heres mine. I would NOT do cutouts unless you plan on keeping the truck forever and want to fit large tires with a small lift.

I never monitored under hood temps so who knows. But you can stick your hand above the vents and feel the heat blowing out of it. So it must be doing something.

One of the main reasons I like the heat extractor hood is because I have never seen one on another truck. I see the other styles on trucks all the time.
