I see a lot of jeeps with the big black decal on the hood and just wondering if it has a functional purpose or just cosemetic? Not really understanding the beauty of it but I know about the eye of the beholder.

Cosmetic? What functionality could a sticker have? There is a few different kinda though the arctic full looking hood one, the altitude u shape or the freedom edition star. All cosmetic to enhance appearance I guess

I does knock out alot of glare I used to get from my hood, especially after a nice shiney wax.

Cosmeticly it adds another dimension to a completely flat hood. Previous Wrangler hoods were bi level. JK hoods are totally flat.

I wish I had one on my old long nose Pete. I kept her nice and purdy (despite hauling heavy equipment to oil field rigs) and the glare was killer.

I think they look good and break up the manotony of a flat plain hood, especialy when every other panel has something on it to break it up a little.

That being said, I dont have one.....but I dont have a Jeep yet either.

I think that sticker is good for an extra 15hp. Maybe more if it says Hemi, R/T or NOS next to it. ;)

Certain paint colors along with the hood decal really compliment each other. :)
