No need to "cool" the engine when it's friggin 4 below. The gears are turning.

      For the TJ, I'm saving up for the AEV hood. It's exactly what I'm looking for. It's all about paying on those stupid student loans though....
      Tony, here is my approach http://forums.4wd.com/forums/showthr...hlight=louvers

      No problems in the winter, little to no contaminants enter the engine compartment, and plenty of heat is vented.

        I like the look of these, put them right in the side of the hood, like how chad has the speed holes in his.

        I think i'd have to paint them though. I'd put them on like louvers not scoops, open end to the back. They'd give an easy path for air to excape but not let too much junk in.

            I know allot of the vehicles today (fleets or delivery) have this type of truck with the vents or louvers on the right side (passenger side) Gray in color and has a mesh in the center.

            This is what I wanting to get for the jeep, but cut the vents in the hood for now.
            my dad got a stylin' concepts magazine a while back and i saw something similar to what you are talking about in there so you could check out their website and see whats there as for vents. good luck finding them that is the only place i remember seeing them.

                I have been contact with two other persons here, about trying to get some type of "how To" site going. If your interested in helping with this and would like to use your vent/louver install as a topic there, We could use the images and post the text at the site. Let me know if you have other installs or upgrades as I get closer to the creation of the site.

                This message is for anyone else interested in this type of site. I'm working on creating a site for this but if you have other sites or image storage site feel free to send me the links with your install/upgrade instructions and I'll post with the images at my site.

                There is no money involved, strictly volunteer bases. Pm me with your information and the site where you have images. If you need help editing your text I will gladly over see it and get your approval before posting.

                I will let all those who are interested know when the site is ready for the first post.
