Sounds dangerous? At what speed were you traveling? (In a recent 5 hour trip, I've pushed the jeep to 95MPH at times with no flutter. I wonder why the difference.

so does anybody know if these hoods are easier to come by nowadays ? i'd hate to even waste 10 to 15 mins going to my local dealership to ask for it by part numbers and they tell me, they're backed ordered for the next 6 months.

I talked to a few dealers before I got mine in December, they all checked the system and thought they could get it in and the vents within a week.

I got my hood and inserts in 2 days from my dealership. It was the bumpstops that took about 10 days.

I just took a close look at one of these hoods.. there are actually 8 of the retainer push pins holding the pad. The other 4 pins are for the windshield washer hoses. They will be a different part#.. ???

What is the purpose of the pad? Can you do without it?

On another note... I took a close look at the vents from the under side. There was quite a bit of snow on the hood and the drainage from that had poured down through the drain holes on the bottom of the vents and made some ice cycles underneath. Judging from the size of those, I would say that the cooling properties of the vents is probably better than what you'd think.... but probably not as good as the AEV hood

i was able to pick up both bezels/vents, two nozzles, two bumpers for the hood, 4 retainer clips, i await the hood and pad for tomorrow.

if i recall reading somewhere i heard the bumpers were hard to find as well? either way i was able to get about 50% of what i needed so far...

i was shocked however to find out, that the vents actually don't seem functional as i first thought.....

I'm new on this forum, so bear with me.

Through an unforeseen chain of events, I have found myself in possession of this exact hood, made of a single layer carbon fiber with plastic support frame underneath. The vents are fully open and functional.

I have a YJ, and plan on getting a JK in the next few years.. but what can anyone tell me about this hood, like is it something I should hold onto, should I try and sell it..? I haven't seen it anywhere before.. and it doesn't fit my YJ haha, so I'm thinking maybe it would be more beneficial to just sell it now if the money is right. Any idea where I should attempt to sell it if thats what I choose to do?

Anyway, thanks in advance..

while it looks nice and will probably sell quickly... i think i would have helped if you put it in the FOR SALE section with some info about it.

Thanks.. I don't really know much about it, like who made it or anything. I'm assuming its a JK only fitment, and just a carbon replica of the 10A hood.. I'll try it up in the for sale section maybe. Any idea what it might be worth? I know most carbon hoods I've seen are in the $1200-2000 range.

Also.. any idea why I can't post in the for sale section?

Thanks for all your help, I really appreciate it.

I also like the two tone. My JK is black, I was thinking of doing an orange hood or even getting the Poison Spyder vent and painting it orange. Probably a similar orange to the factory LJ.

All JK hoods flutter BADLY. I replaced the latches with the Rugged Ridge latches. No fluttering anymore.

22k miles on my 2013 JK...so far not even the slightest sign of flutter.

Maybe they went with different hood latches after '12. I even had the service dept. trying to sell me the Daystar partial replacements that stop the flutter.

Mine would only flutter when there's any kind of wind. I drove through some decent winds and thought my hood was going to fly off.
