Unfortunately hood vents don't stop hood flutter.
For those who haven't experienced 'hood flutter' yet, I'm guessing the right set of circumstances haven't unfolded for you yet.
I only ever notice it at highway speed when passing an on-coming big rigs.
On out and back trips, I've only noticed it in one direction, so wind direction must be a factor as well.
If you search 'hood flutter' you'll find plenty of fixes.
The only fix I can vouch for (because I did it) is these Drake Offroad hood latches. You can dial in the tension and the hood is solid as a rock.
On a recent trip my hood didn't budge while my brothers JK hood (with stock latches) was dancing all over the place - same time, same stretch of highway and plenty of big rigs.
