Wild Boar claims an increased air flow to the radiator.
It appears the slots are wider but shorter. It also appears the lower half of the "spoiler" may direct some air downwards towards the slots.
I doubt it makes that much difference but more is better, right? When you start blocking flow with mesh/screen and/or winch, wouldn't every little bit help before you have to turn on the heater? (Not really a big deal as I've not heard of anyone having overheating issues that this mild increase in flow would remedy, so, just a thought).
They also claim better aerodynamics.
I realize it's like putting a bandaid on an incised jugular but 1mpg might break even over a couple years.
The grille gets a love/hate response(as does the company) for aesthetics, and some say it has to be on the right Jeep. To that, I remind you of the various loved/hated hoods on the market.
Can anyone verify the aero claim?
I'm more concerned about an answer to this.
I kinda like the look and think it could work well, aesthetically, with the right bumper/fender/hood combination, but it's not on the short list.
