Aluminum hood or steel

Hi guys, I hope someone out there can help. I picked up a 99 Ford Ranger 4x4 for my wife. It has front sheet metal damage. When I bought the hood and fenders the salesman asked if it was an aluminum or steel hood. I never checked it so I assumed it was steel. Now I realize it's aluminum. My question is besides the obvious what is the difference between the two. Will the steel replace the aluminum without any grief?

Thanks, Ed
