Found the hood vents that I was looking for. Took about 3 hrs to install. I have to find 1/6th rubber gasget materal for under the flange area, but for now they are in. They are Stainless Steel, found them at a boat store. Took the jeep out for a ride and the water temp went down about 10-12 deg. The air flow under the hood is great.

Here is a link to the pictures. Ed thanks for lending a hand...

Looks great, let us know how they hold up over time. Not sure I want Krome on my Jeep.

You sure work quick Tom. You were talking about doing something like this last Saturday at the Jeep show at Morris 4X4. Looks good but I tend to agree with Lenny, I don't like chrome on my Jeep either.

Tom,

I've seen different kinds of hood vents setup. I do like the design look of the one's you did :naughty: (not a fan of chrome though).

Can you elaborate a bit more on the measuring of the cut :banghead:

I would be also concern with water entry either from rain or a creek crossing (even though on the creek crossing water will come from underneath it will not flood the upper engine right away), how is this hood vent you purchased addressing the water entry :biggrin1: I've seen some designs that actually keep the entry to a minimum.

The opening is 4 3/4 by 11 3/4. They are not CHROME, they are Stainless Steel. I am going to call the manufactor and see if they have a set that is plastic. From what I have seen they do come in plastic. When I get them I will paint them RED........ Water is not a problem drainage is going past electrical wires and any that are close can have shrink tube placed on the conectors. The cost of the vents was $13.95 each.

Jim I know you don't need any more chrome you won alots of it this last weekend.... :sneak: You kicked butt again...congrats......
