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.
Got it for a good value (cost + free shipping, Instructions and template were good and easy to follow, the black louver looks good against my white hood. I can feel the heat coming out...The real test will come this summer and see if it helps keep heat under the hood down?
Does the louver have provisions for the windshield washer jets? I am putting this on a 2007 Rubicon.

Asked by scooter from calif. on
Hello Scooter, when you install the Poison Spyder Custom Hood Louver you really cant prevent the rain from getting into the engine compartment. Each louvered opening is a water entrance point. Please let us know if you have any other questions, thanks.
