We have a JK version already drawn up. Just waiting to get some other projects done before cutting a first article on it.

All that really isn't that necessary, just toss a pair of genright or gtp louvers on it and call it good...

I was going to do that, but you gotta admit, those don't look nearly as good as the PSC hood louvers.

I really like the looks of this one too! I would get this.It does look like it would require some large holes, but also looks like enough attachment points to re-inforce the hood. I just hope it attaches with nut-serts!!! Love me some nut-serts

Which the gtp? I disagree, they install and look factory if you do it right. Id rather have that instead of a piece of sheet metal with 30 rivetts holding it on. And if you're off at all on a hole you'll get gaps between the sheet metal and hood... no thanks

Everyone (everyone that's seen their Jeep covered in snow) knows the hotspots on the hood. I would like to see a panel that addressed those spots and possibly incorporated a scoop for Avenger-type S/C's.

any venting you do is going to help. also venting the inner fenders can help a lot as well. we did these on nick's after a few beers (so we had an excuse if they weren't straight)



and with it sitting on the trail you can see the heat coming out of them.

I hate quoting pictures but this one is quote worthy. That looks damn good!

I think this will look great! I'm going to put my Spyder hood decal on so that I have an excuse to cut the faded sticker cover area out in a year or two!

Why rivet? If you're gonna make holes anyway, might as well bolt it in place. JMHO

Nope. Looks like you rivetted a big piece of metal on the hood. Just my. 02 but it reminds me of the hood scoops ricers or big trucks rivet on.

Plus the jk has no hood bulge to help hide that... its personal preference I just think its unsightly
