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.
EZ install, about 3 hours total for one guy. Works as advertised.

5.0Keep a cool head.
This louvre panel looks fantastic. With all of this covid 19 nonsense going on, it took a little longer to receive this. But, it's here now. All that I have to do is have it installed. I don't have the place to remove my hood and do this. But, my hood needs painting anyway, so why not let the body shop do it for me?
This should let a lot more air into the engine bay to keep the engine cooler when we are out Jeepin'.

4.0Great Product......SUPER SLOW SHIPPING ALMOST 3 WK
Just as ordered, shipping took about 3 weeks, every time I would call, I was told "it will be going out tomorrow". I had just about given up and was planning on cancelling the order and getting a refund when they told me it had shipped.
Whats the difference between this part and "2017 Jeep Wrangler (JK) Poison Spyder Hood Louver - 17-53-011-PC"?
Answer this question
The 17-53-011-PC fits 2007-2018 Wranglers. I really don't understand what you are asking. I have this one on my 2012 JKUR, and it fits perfectly, and allows sufficient airflow to help cool the engine.
