Secondary electric fan + hood louvers

So i was thinking about installing either a poison spyder or hiline louver kit as well as an extra electric fan. This fan would be mounted to the underside of the hoo+d and would push air out of the louvers when traveling on trails at low speeds.

Any ideas if this would work well/be worth it/be better to suck air in rather than push out ?


Another idea would be to install 2 extra fans on the hood one pulling fresh air to the radiator and one extracing hot air....any opinions ????

Why the concern with hot air?

Just get an AEV hood, its bit expensive but saves busted knuckles and the fan rigging option you seem to be contemplating.

I run 1 electric fan on mine without the clutch fan and mine stays under 210 without a problem. Fan runs constantly but never overheats. If your gonna run a electric fan a manual override on it is a good idea.

What year is your JK? A tranny cooler would be a better purchase than a electric fan for a vent. Nothing wrong with wanting to vent your underhood temps, with a vented hood. Are you having overheating problems?

The important install is a trans. cooler if you have an auto. Other than that you shouldn't have a problem.
