Little clairification may help. Do you mean louvers as indicated above, a scoop for the vents on the cowl or an actual cowl induction hood?

IRON ROCK OFF ROAD: TJ 4.0 Intake Kit by Spectre Performance
here is a scoop for the cowl. If you go this route IRO also makes a nice tool box that goes in place of the old stock intake.

I would like to see actual cowl induction hood scoops people have added to their stock hood. Even the ram air style with an open front and back. I've seen the fiberglass hood that's available.

Does this count? It's a replacement cowl panel that includes a provision for mounting a cold air intake:



The raised section contains an integrated duct for the engine air that clears the HVAC stuff under the cowl. This cowl panel works with the factory air box.



This panel can also be used to mount a snorkel, without having to cut any holes in any body panels like the hood or fender like most snorkels.

I believe he makes them, he is a fiberglass genius. Also take a look at the bed and top. Very skilled individual.

I designed it, made a "master" in fiberglass, then I made a molds for it. The main cowl mold:



and the internal duct mold:



I'm thinking about molding a few and offering them on eBay.



The cowl can also support a snorkel, here's a rough prototype snorkel.



The nice thing about doing a snorkel with this cowl is that there's no requirement to cut holes in the external sheet metal, most TJ snorkels require that you cut a big hole in the fender or hood.

BTW there's also a "side port" version of the cowl, which instead of the top opening for the air cap, the top is flat and there's a side port:



That version can also support a snorkel.

Thank you, but "genius" is way too strong a word. I just work hard to turn what I imagine into reality.

oh wow Jscherb, that would solve all the issues I was thinking I would have when doing the hummer snorkel mod. Please keep me in mind when you make a few more to sell on ebay!

Someone just asked me in a PM about the hookups from the snorkel or Humvee-style air intake cap to the engine so I thought I'd reply here.

Here's how it works:

The cowl panel design includes an integrated duct underneath:



This duct keeps the engine intake air separate from the HVAC air (some people with the Spectre intake kit have complained about hearing engine intake noise through their HVAC vents in the cab), and the duct also makes it easy to clear the HVAC stuff under the cowl, and it routes over to the center where the air plumbing would come through the firewall into the cowl chamber (shown here on a mockup tub section in my workshop):



A side port can be put on the factory air box and the front port blocked off (side port shown just clamped in place in this photo:



And then a hose runs from the factory air box to the firewall port:



Or, if you didn't want to use the factory air box, this cowl is 100% compatible with the Spectre cowl intake kit, which routes it's plumbing through the firewall in exactly the same place, but allows the engine and HVAC air to mix and doesn't support a snorkel or air intake cap.

This counts just because it it is very creative and awesome. I wish I had room to use it. My problem is I cannot get through my firewall. Looking for something that will let hot air out and keep water out also. Not too high though. And I don't want to spend $500 on a glass hood. So, feel free to offer your suggestions

Nice work on the cowl, let me know if you make any to sale. I like the one with the side vent, do you have a way to drain of water?

If you're asking if there's a way to drain any water that might happen to get in through the side port (or in through the top port air intake cap for that matter), yes, there's a drain in the integrated duct on the underside of the cowl.

You guys are really going to laugh at my scoop but it has sentimental value. My father bought it for me so I figure why not make the old geezer happy and put it on. He even went as far as sending the scoop to get a hand painted grille on the scoop. At least I got 4 less holes to drill when I do put the poison spyder hood louver on

If I decide to offer any for sale, I'll offer them on eBay. I'd do it auction style, not "Buy It Now" style, so the price will depend on what people are willing to bid. I'd likely set some reserve so they don't sell at a ridiculously low price though.

I won't laugh. It may not be a typical Jeep style, but what is? One of the main reasons we like our Jeeps is because we can remake them into anything we want them to be.

Do you have any plumbing hooked up underneath or is it just for fresh air?

I will let people know if I decide to offer a few Cool Cowls for sale.

I may also use a Cool Cowl on the Jeep pickup project I'm planning. Just for fun I threw a top port Cool Cowl on the tub I'm starting with, but I'd likely do a side port on this project and use it as an opportunity to build up a side port snorkel in fiberglass. (The cowl and the modular half cab in the photo below are just setting there, not bolted/screwed in place so they're slightly misaligned at the moment)
