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.

    Comments about Poison Spyder Custom Hood Louver:

    I suggest a step bit for drilling the 20 starter holes accept for the holes with more than one layer to go through because the hole saw I used wasn't up for all that work. I purchased this product for the cooling benefits and as a bonus to cover hail damage. YouTube video that poison spider did for this was very helpful. Great finish great fit very satisfied. Only complaint is the two layers in the very front cause the bolts to tilt slightly but that can be fixed by drilling out the bottom layer

    Pros

    • Fast delivery
    • Nice Finish

    Cons

    • Missing items

    Best Uses

    • Engine Heat Soak

    Comments about Poison Spyder Custom Hood Louver:

    Product came in a timely manner. Downfall is that it did not have the mounting hardware in the package. Linked up with Poison Spyder and they had it shipped out the same day I received my package. As far as great looks, and functional it does both. Heat soak in the engine bay has gone down dramatically. Now this will not make your engine run cooler, but it will eliminate the heating of your hood associated with heat soak.

    Pros

    • Comes In Black Powdercoat
    • Easy Install
    • Helps Keep Engine Cool
    • Looks great

    Cons

    • Powdercoat Could B Better
    • Template Needs Adjustment

    Best Uses

      Comments about Poison Spyder Custom Hood Louver:

      Overall very happy with look and function of this item. The powdercoat job could have been better. There were tiny areas of pooling and bubbling at hood louvre vent slots on one side.

      Installs easily, but the template should be adjusted slightly to eliminate the need to cut through double-steel areas of hood and slanted support on leading edge. This would make for easier install and better seating of nuts on hood underside.

          This Poison Spyder Hood Louver fits only 1997 to 2002 TJ Wranglers (because of windshield washer nozzles). You can find the same hood louver for your Jeep here: [http://jo.my/hoodlouver] Thanks!
