Nice '65. And nice looking Jeep too!!

Looks like it's Night Mist Blue. I showed a '66 Night Mist Blue Mustang for a number of years. My dad showed a '70 Mach 1 for about 10 years before selling it. I'm a classic Mustang fan.

That is a SHWEEEET front bumper. I'm glad I'm not the only one who looked at the mustang! I'd kill to have a classic pony.

she has a 289 bored out to about a 308 with all new pistons, new cam, roller rockers, hooker headers, and plenty more to go around. she runs like a champ and proud to say has put many ricers to shame.

Those scoops/cowls are supposed to be mounted that way...opening facing out.

Either way nice bumper setup..nice jeepa all around.

Did you notice any suspension drop in the front end from putting the extra weight on the Jeep? Bumper looks Great. BTW what tires are you running?

OK, so you must have noticed that when ya use your windshield washer, it blows all over the hood, right?
That's because more of the air flow is going from the windshield, over the hood, to the front of the Jeep.
Common sense would tell ya that.

With the scoop opening facing forward, you are pulling more air out from where it should have more air drawn in.
It would need to be mounted up higher to be effective in the forward facing position.

And you're still telling me the wrong way it's supposed to be mounted.
Just because some seller of these has a picture with one mounted the wrong way doesn't mean it's supposed to be mounted that way!

Doesn't my explanation of why it's supposed to have the opening facing rearward make any sense to you???

Absolutely does make sense.... Im not saying the design works or not. Just saying Mr One Two isnt wrong for mounting it how he did because thats the way the manufacturer designed it to be mounted. That exact product and many others like it...and there is also a handful that also mount the opposite way or "correct way"..
