J8 hood scoop feeler for a group buy
I have been in contact with Doc at Springtail Solutions. They have been busy building a new line of storage products for the JKs. He is in the process of making a J8 tribute and has fabricated a J8 hood scoop that is very close to how the real thing appears. I have been talking to him about whether they have plans to manufacture these or not. He tells me that if there is enough interest, he would consider making a batch for us. He would need at least 10 interested parties to commit to prepaying. Here are the details....
Group buy details
Product would ship about 3-4 weeks after payment is accepted.
Once we get 10+ parties interested, he will post a link on the website for us to pay. Once enough have paid, he will start manufacturing the J8 hood scoops.
Hood scoop will be finished in powder coat primer.
As you can see in pictures, welds will need to be finished for a smooth look. He liked the appearance of the welds and most painted unfinished.
The fit is close but not perfect, sticky back rubber foam will be provided with the scoop. As you can see in the pictures, the foam provides better fit and aesthetics. Mounting holes will be placed approximately the way they are on his prototype. No hardware is provided
This GB is only for the hood scoop,
there are no internals yet to hook it up to the air intake. That would be up to us to figure out....as you can see in the pictures, it is pretty close. Obviously, not a project for the faint of heart since you would be cutting a hole in your hood According to Doc, these are very hard to fabricate and to manufacture which is why no one offers them. Since Doc is not a vendor on this forum, he will not be participating in this thread other than to answer any questions through me.
