2014 Heat Extractor Hood

Imagine our surprise when we received our 2014 Rubicon X complete with heat extract hood only to find out the extractors were dummies. Anyone make a real replacement vent or do we break out the dremel ?

What do you mean by dummies?

Mine has open ducts on the underside of the hood.

Ours are solid plastic on the underneath side. The only opening is a small whole to drain water away.

I hope mine doesn't come that way or I will have to get the dealer to correct that issue.

That could be arguable, but there are indeed those open ducts to allow for a good amount of air passage.

If they were simply fully open, I would think that water would just pour onto the engine whenever it rained.

I've seen some mod it by opening the bottom up to allow more heat out.

I don't think we will have anymore moisture than what would already be coming thru the front grill or the pre exsisting drain holes. The hood does alot of dancing around and some extra ventilation might help in this area also.
