I have seen it on a few Jeeps it looks ok.. But they did a piss poor job on color match so that made it look even worse. I think with time it will grow on me, overall looks pretty nice but I think for now I am going with a hood louver. Will love to see how yours turns out.

I opted to go with the unfinished due to the possibility of bad paint match, going to have a local body shop paint it so can be sure and have it exact to my liking and not have to mess with sending it back if any issues. Was all set to get a 13 rubicon hood but then found need the silencer, bump stops and something else can't think of now where this is supposed to be a direct swap.

Is this steal or fiberglass?


Sorry new here just learning... I have seen people selling the fiberglass ones but have seen the JKU I think with a stock metal one.

Looks good. I am posting so I can keep following this.
I also like the poison spider hood louver though.

Ok, it is on, first a few thoughts, looks cool as hell. Defiantly will allow for max heat escape as the center grills are completely open under hood, this I do not like for a DD. When rains it will go straight through, nothing major under neath that should be affected by it, but I am probably going to fab up some louver'd panels to rivit in place kind of like Poison Spider only on a small scale. Then there is the single sprayer nozzle. But all in all, I am happy and not a lot out there yet have this one.
