Poison spyder hood lover install

Well yesterday I did it I cut my hood to install the poison spyder hood louver. It was pretty easy just a little freaky cutting my hood. Next is to install a louver on the side where the cold air intake is.

I'd have a hard time performing that surgery! How many times did you measure? Looks good Steve!

Nice! I've been waiting for this to come out as I'll probably be doing this same thing soon. I want to reduce the temps on my air compressor mounted under the hood.

Granted it wasnt hot last night but we drove 75 80 from 51st and bell back to power last night and the hood was cool normaly it would be warm to hot. Plus I really just like it to break up all the red on the hood

Very Nice.... and BOLD!

How is the fit with the hood? Is there a gasket between the louver and the factory hood?

What side louver are you thinking of going with?

If it were mine, I wouldn't worry about a gasket. You could always put a bead of silicone around the edge, but that won't stop the water that might enter through the louvers.

Agreed, I think the silicone would be better for vibration dampening rather than waterproofing.

Great job on the install. You've got some great photos we'd like to use on our product page. Do you mind sharing a couple of Hi-Res photos?

Steve only measured once. But it centers on the hood bumpers holes. Then center punches key spots that you drill out, then mark with straight edge. It took a very steady hand and where the x-brace is multiple thin passes so we didn't cut it.

Well when the TJ has a dead battery and only gets 10 mpgs and has 2 tires that are about to fall apart, The JK is a better choice. And it beats trying to park the Dodge.
