Yeah, I definitely softened any purchase or stupid move I might make for the next several weeks.
I'm thinking there might be a few Jeep purchases coming soon

I have RunCool louvers from Race Ace. They have many styles and can be configured in many ways. I bumpers and loop on the hood were removed. The remaining holes were covered with screw cap covers from Home Depot.

Sinbob...Id go with the black, I have a yellow JP and it looks kickass. You really can see heat comeing out of hood if weather is cool enough. I havent noticed engine temp change any but engine compartment and hood are cooler when I stop on trail thats fersure. I will say cutting those big holes in hood made me a little nervous at first but it worked out great. Trying to post some pics so you can see yellow TJ with powdercoated PS hood but cant get it work for some reason.

I finally got around to picking up new stainless hardware. Honestly, I feel like I should've gone to PSC for replacements from them, but I was near the hardware store and just decided to pick them up myself.

I went with a course thread stainless screw/bolt and corresponding washers and nuts. I could not find any with an Allen head, so mine have a Phillips head, but they look just as good. Best part is they did not give me a bit of trouble. The course thread makes all the difference.
I am considering swapping the rest of the Allen head's out and getting some more of the new ones I just got.

yeah i have to agree that first step when you start cutting gives me a pucker factor....but from the looks of it you have some room(not alot) for cutting mistakes...i did find this video that is pretty cool....

Sinbob, Yes I took hood off to cut the holes for louvre. You actually end up cutting four seperate holes and no way I couldve done it while on jeep. It was easy to get hood off 6 torques bolts and my 12 year old dughter helped me lift it off.

Find a Fastenal (I have one 1 minute from work). If you want ones with stainless heads and a coarse thread, email me the specs and I can get some for ya and get them to you.

When I cut the holes for my louvers, I left the hood on. I layed a 2x4 across the front of the engine bay and put a plastic drop cloth over the engine to catch the metal from cutting. I was much easier than removing the hood.

That's what I did, it's just a pain installing the bolts closest to the windshield.

We have one close to the office. I just didn't feel like going anywhere else when I found them at Ace. I'll take some pics of the harware I got. I don't think it looks any worse.

For anyone else's reference though, they are #10x24 bolts and naturally #10 flat washers, and #10x24 nyloc nuts.

I left my hood on as well. It didn't seem like there was any real need to take it off. I put a large, single piece of cardboard across the engine bay and went to town.

I'm pretty sure there's at least one in NZ, actually right there in Auckland if I remember correctly we shipped one there a while back. If you'd like a shipping quote, contact our sales department and they can look it up for you. We've sent quite a few of them to Australia though.

Bumbleb Yellow

Yes I did the install my self. I did not cut the holes in the hood, I just liked the look of the louvers so I just painted under the louver so you would not see the yellow. Maybe someday I will cut some holes, it does not take long it is a easy match up to the bumper holes and the wiper hole,and a few measurements you have it..I do like the little scoop on the cowl some run it facing the windshield and some run it like I have it .if you notice the back louvers on the poison spyder are goin the same way my scoop is facing so to me it matches..

See I have a HVAC scoop and I have mine facing the windshield. I did that to keep leaves and sticks and crap out. But I must say. I've wanted these louvers for a while but seeing them on a yellow Jeep has me dead set now!
