Mine along with many TJ's I have ran into have the same problem. Mine is only noticeable up close so for now, it's staying the same.

I'm thinking about putting a poison spyder louver on my hood.

krisbman Well mine is a virgin, the hood hasnt been painted and its got crows feet. Too much material at one time could cause it.

Lowrollin12 I have checkers or crows feet all over my hood. This is my 1st TJ that didn't have the heat shield underneath. I wonder if that could be the issue?

azairtech i had one paint shop tell me he's only seen cracks like that when there are mutiple layers of paint. thought he was crazy, since i've never had body work done. and the guy doing the repaint had to sand it down to the metal. 4 layers was his estimate of what he saw.
disappointing, poor workmanhip. coating on side mirrors flaked off within couple years.

krisbman And how are you able to tell there are four separate " layers"

is it normal, from the factory, to have that many layers of paint?
From the factory there should only be a sealer, base then the clear. If there is four different layers of base and clear then its been refinished, not to say it wasnt done after it rolled of the assembly line though. Ive painted thousands of " Brand new cars" the dealer doesnt have to state if its been freight damaged or lot damaged if the repair is under a set amount. Jeep hoods are notorious for getting crows feet. Mine is the same. Im not sure if its in correlation with underhood temps or what.
