I was gonna do that to save a few bucks. But Then I realized that the bedliner wouldnt look as good as the power coat does. Its only $20 more to get it powder coat. And if you get it from northridge4x4 its free shipping

yeah, i guess where i looked it was a $50 difference and i figured it would give me something to do on a saturday morning. for $20 the powder coat makes more sense

Might still do that one day.
Ah sweet, i wasn't exactly sure what it was haha! Will just cut some holes in it when i get my louver

Does anyone have any pics of the poison spyder louver at night that show what kind of light comes through from the headlights? I'm debating between the PS or the Genrights. And it's tough! the holes for the PS are larger and i think they'd vent more heat, but the genrights can be placed where that test showed the hotter spots to be. This may be the deciding factor.

I could take a pic tonight but there isnt any light coming through it.. I have seen pics where some did mount underhood lights to glow up through it though.
I would say that the Jeep seems to cool down faster after driving it though.

Cool, I'd appreciate it. I don't know if I'll like light shining through at night. That might bother me. Thanks in advance.

I went with the Poison Spyder louvers because I didn't like the look of random size soffit louvers that came from your local home improvement store, such as the Genrights.

The other problem I have with the genrights is that I have to make them line up equally on both sides or it'll drive me nuts. I figured the poison spyder will solve that problem.

Thanks guys, I'm pretty set on the poison spyder, just waiting to see some night pics.

No not really. If you lean forward you see it. But it shines on the roof above the rear view mirror. I got use to it pretty quick. If you go to a H4 conversion headlight you won't get any shine through at all.

I've got the hella h4 upgrades. I'll check to see what kind of light they throw under the hood. Again, thanks for the pics man!

Sorry for not getting pics last night.. was watching a movie with the wife. I have the trucklite LED headlights, so it may not be a good comparison.

Got it on! I'll see how it lowers temps under the hood tomorrow. Should be a nice hot day. Just for reference, in 107 degree day, idling for about 15 minutes, I got intake temps as high as 180 and coolant temps up to 233. I'll see what they read tomorrow (should be just as hot) and i'll report back...

How did everyone reattach the windshield washer nozzle?

Mine doesn't want to snap back in.

Got some "testing" done today:


110 degree heat, jeep in park in the middle of a field, AC blowing full blast: highest coolant temp is 214. Intake temps are still up in the 170 are. Stock air box.

Last Friday I was sitting still in the same conditions, coolant temp was up to 233.

Conclusion: The hood vents don't make your jeep run cooler, but they definitely keep it from running hotter. :thumbsup:

Here are some more numbers. Sitting under the shade. Now with a winch in front of the grille.

The first pic was taken after letting it idle at a higher speed for about 15 minutes. That's as "cold" ask could get it. Proof the PS louvers definitely help during slow speed crawling?

Second pic was after slowing the engine back down and letting it sit for another 15 minutes.

I'd still like to lower intake temps. Maybe a snorkel of some sort? I don't know.

Maybe this is already answered and I didnt see it. Are there any problems with rain coming in the openings of the louvers and hood and harming the motor? while driving and parked? This is the only question I have concerning buying one.

I've pressure washed my engine a few times with no ill effects. Ive also pressure washed the hood with the louvers installed with no ill effects. I'm not worried about the small amount of rain water that would enter and I don't think you should be either. You're good to go!

Thanks, that was my only hang up so I will start pricing them out.
