Re: 2012 srt Cherokee hood

Is the engine bay situated differently in the SRT.
If they are functioning hood vents and it rains or even if you go through the car wash what happens to the water that gets in the holes?
I know on the ram the vents are up near the windshield...but on the SRT GC the vent holes are in the front on the down slope of the hood.
Wouldn't want it to leak into the engine bay and possible on to some electronics...it has to get diverted in someway.

It won't hurt anything. No different than water being splashed and sprayed up from underneath. Hell, I've washed my engine on the WK2 SRT8 a couple times already. Not that much water actually make it through those vents into the engine bay.

Don't worry about it.

Re: 2012 srt Cherokee hood

Re: 2012 srt Cherokee hood

this hood has cups or its recessed at the opening and it pulls the water away from the engine and exits out of the way. Ill trace it to see where it exits when i get a chance. I just washed my jeep and 0 water got in threw the vents.

Perhaps the guy just lives in a warmer environment. 3/4 of the year where i live the average temperature is 44 degrees in the shade, that is about 113 degrees in your talk. Now i am interested in this post because driving around up here is very hard on the vehicle and the extra cooling that the srt bonnet provides would make a big difference. Now i am not trying to "pose" I am simply doing what is best for my car.
