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 Jeep's 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.
Fit great comes with nice template. Cooled my motor down 20 degrees while crawling in low.

5.0Hood Louver was a great add on.
Excellent quality. Well thought out instructions. Pick a good YouTube installation video as this helps. This will certainly help overheating in desert areas. It also looks great even from the driver's seat. Definitely hard to cut holes in a perfectly good hood, but once you get past that, the install is not difficult, just time consuming as there is no room for error. Get the right tools in advance. I would highly recommend this mod.
