Poison Spyder Hood Louvers

Here's another original Poison Spyder product that we're putting back into production due to popular demand Available now for '03-'06 Jeep TJ/LJ, with other Jeep models coming soon.



The Poison Spyder Hood Louver panel 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.



In addition to improved cooling performance, Poison Spyder Hood Louvers add great looks to your Jeep! Crafted from thick gauge aluminum sheet, CNC laser-cut and precision die-stamped. Hood Louvers are fairly easy to install but do require some drilling and cutting of your hood. Stainless steel fasteners are supplied. Hood Louvers are available in bare aluminum or powder coated black.

Does this mod require you to do anything to the engine's electronics to prevent water damage from rain? I am definitely interested. Also, I would like to see a write-up/instruction sheet about how to do the install.
Thanks.

The instructions are pretty simple. We provide a paper template for cutting the holes out underneath the louver, you make your marks then cut with hole saw and cut-off wheel or body saw. Place the louver, drill for the hardware and bolt it on. Those are the broad strokes, you of course need to remove the windshield loop and bumpers, squirter, etc then reinstall afterward, cut corresponding hole in insulation pad if you have it, etc. We will have a PDF instruction sheet for these fairly soon, which will be available for download from our website.

Your engine's electronics should be fairly well sealed from the elements already--the engine compartment isn't exactly a sealed compartment, water can get splashed up in there even without this mod. Doing anything extra in that area is entirely up to you.

Thanks guys. I forgot to note in the original posting that this only fits '03-'06 TJ/LJ. We should have a version for the earlier TJ at some point.

I've been wanting something like this for my TJ('97) for a while... except I'd want to get it body matched.

Here's an interesting look at the packaging process used to protect our aluminum TJ Hood Louver panels during transit. We had to put almost as much R&D into the custom packaging as we did for the part itself!

First the bare or powder coated Hood Louver panel first goes into a protective plastic envelope...



Specially made styrofoam box liners protect the Hood Louver during shipping. First the installation guide and cut template go in...



Next the Hood Louver panel is carefully packed into the styrofoam box liner. Hardware kit is taped into place in the corner.



The specially made cover piece holds the Hood Louver panel snugly in place while protecting the raised louvers.



The styrofoam box liner and cover, with Hood Louver panel snugly in place, is inserted into a heavy duty, specially made carton.



Once its sealed up, its ready to ship around the world and safely reach its destination.

Good to know that packaging is well thought out... and not just tossed in a box and hope for the best.

Good job Poison Spyder.

Your 98 most likely has dual windshield squirters. Our current hood louver is designed for the later models that only have one.

I dont see a reason we can fab our squirters from two to one So other then that we can be safe to know it will fit the contours of the hood correct?

You are a thinker! I guess it would cover the old holes too, wouldn't it?

We have intended to come out with the earlier TJ version, as well as versions for YJ and JK, for quite a while now. Some of those have even been prototyped. But to this point none have been put into production and I can't give you an ETA for when they will. Yes they seem like simple adjustments to the current design but for some reason we just can't seem to take our focus away from other projects for a few moments to finish up these other hood louver models.

There have been a few of our customers who have simply converted their earlier TJ hoods to a single squirter and run our louver. As far as we can tell everything else fits fine. But you'll be on your own for doing those mods, as we can't provide instructions or guaranty your results.

Hey dusty, just wanted to let you guys know that my 2000 Jeep TJ only has ONE squirter...

I believe I have an OEM hood. So now that I know that I don't even have to modify anything!

We've been seeing a lot of variations in year models. I'm thinking of changing the part description to just specifying one squirter (or two, when we come out with that version) rather than a year range. Thanks for adding another data point
