Does anyone know this hood scoop?

This hood scoop is on the Fab Fours site, but they don't sell it and don't know where they got it. Is it Mopar, Ford? I've seen similar scoops but not this one, the closest one I've found the dimenssions are too wide and go over the bumpers, it needs to be like 21 inches in the back. I get crazy heat coming off the engine in the summer and would love to open the hood up, plus I think it looks pretty ballsy

Thx

Have you tried Jegs?


Why not just put louvers on it from Poison Spyder or Synergy and then maybe run an aux fan from underneath.

These have solved all heat issues under my JK's hood; engine, transmission, electronic modules, air intake...

The problem is that that scoop isnt exactly designed to let heat out. At speed, it will actually force air in and swirl around the engine bay. At slow speeds, it will allow some heat out but isnt optimal. As others have mentioned, you may want to consider louvers if expelling heat is the primary goal.

This looks pretty close and should fit based on specs

You should open up your wheel wells like that Jeep as well. I'm sure that will let out some heat.

Air into the engine bay through scoops and open wheel wells is air that doesn't pass through the radiator. Not a problem at low speeds and wheeling, but not good on the highway.

The one pictured looks bad ass but I agree it might not help much.

It is awesome to physically see the heat waves come out of my TOTL hood when crawling.

ALso second the motion to open up your inner fenders. This made a huge difference in several of the Jeeps I wrench on.

Hey Guys thanks for the feedback, I'm at work I'll look through it when I get out. One thing I forgot to mention is I have the Daystar vents, I figured air in = air out. I know the poison spyder vent, but I thought the scoop looked cool and would also help

Not the parts I used. There may be similar parts available for the 2012+ JKs that go to overseas desert locations. You would have to research that, as I did for the pre-2012 JKs.
