1996 Ford F250 Powerstroke hood problem

Hey powerstroke owners, I have a1996 powerstroke, I bought it in 1999. When I purchased the truck I noticed the paint on the hood started showing some cracks. Over the years it got worst and looked like a bad paint job from the factory. I finally repainted the truck a few years back and the hood paint is doing the same thing.

The other day someone told me it was from the heat off the engine? I do not know if it is a a faulty heat shield or what ever it is under the hood that is suppose to keep that from happening. I am going to call Ford and inquire, but was wandering if any past or present owners have experienced this problem as well?

My father in law has a 1996 7.3 and his does the same thing. The heat is the only thing that makes sense. I had a '99 7.3 (different body style) and 06' 6.0 (newer style) and never has that problem. Not sure what causes it, but to have my 7.3 back instead of the 6.0, I'd be okay with it.
