City of Industry, CA (August 12,2022) Anderson Composites has introduced two new carbon fiber hoods for the 2021-2022 Ford Bronco. The Type-OE and the Type-RT mount with the OE hardware in the factory locations to get the best fitment. Both hoods are made with the vacuum infusion process to get the best fabric to resin ratio. They utilize the industry standard 3k, 2×2 carbon fiber fabric for optimal strength and longevity for on and off-highway use. The structural “B” side is made of fiberglass and is bonded to the topside which is made of carbon fiber.
The Type-OE hood (SKU # AC-HD21FDBR-OE) weighs approximately 26 lbs. compared to the factory stock hood that weighs 35 lbs. The Type-RT (SKU # AC-HD21FDBR-RT) weighs 28 lbs. and features a raised, “Raptor-inspired” center section with aggressive styling with added vents. These functional vents assist with heat extraction from the engine compartment. The vent mesh can be removed if desired for painting purposes. Both hoods reduce weight which helps with improved fuel mileage when other aftermarket accessories are added to the vehicle. These hoods have a show-ready, high luster gloss finish on the top surfaces.
