Poison Spyder Hood Louver - 14-53-010-PC

Specifications

PRODUCT OVERVIEW

The Poison Spyder Hood Louver helps keep your engine running cool by promoting airflow through the engine compartment. Many factors can contribute to high under-hood temperatures, which can translate to higher engine coolant temperatures and overheating. Headers, slow speeds, flex fans, and the cramped spaces of the engine compartment can all contribute to increased heat and reduced airflow. This Hood Louver kit frees up airflow through the engine compartment, allowing hot air to escape and cooler air to be drawn in through the radiator, improving cooling of both the engine coolant and under-hood air. Rock-crawlers and slow-moving vehicles are especially susceptible, as slower speeds naturally result in reduced airflow. Poison Spyder Hood Louvers are crafted from quality, thick gauge aluminum sheet. They are CNC laser-cut and precision die-stamped. Aluminum makes the hood louver both light weight and corrosion resistant. But its thick enough to add some rigidity to the Jeeps notoriously thin sheet metal hood, helping to reduce "hood wobble" at speeds. Hood Louvers are fairly easy to install but do require some drilling and cutting of your hood. Stainless steel fasteners are supplied, as well as a full-size template with instructions for cutting the airflow holes in the hood.

Looks good

Looks great, reviews I read said it lowers the heat a lot, but I haven't driven enough yet to know. 4WP store near me kept my Jeep for 7 1/2 hours and gave it back the next day. Must be hard to install.

Great appearance and functionality!

Installation began after the initial anxiety of cutting up a perfectly good hood subsided. It's an easy install with the provided instructions and template. The template was spot on, but the center hood support was not perfectly centered, which resulted in the need to cut through another layer of steel. There is a possibility that light from your headlights will emit light through the louvers onto your windshield. The sealed beam Sylvania Silverstars did this. I recently upgraded to some Hella H4 headlights and this issue went away. I know some people are reluctant to install this for fear that water will get into the engine compartment. A monsoon rain storm hit the day after I installed this and dowsed us with over an inch of rain. Zero issues. I have no regrets installing this.

Great looking product bought it for heat reduction and style. Keeps my jeeps temp down at low speeds. The black powder coat looks awesome.
