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

It does get hot under the JK hood. Whats the surface area that is now used for ventilation on that louver?

tech enough for you? :thefinger::beer:

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:beer:

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.
