Re: Thoughts???

The key work in the first post is "IF I AM SUCCESSFUL" LOL.

I can't and will not be starting any lists when the first one is ready to ship I will let everyone know!!

This way no one is waiting on something sitting on a list for months.

The Website is only a few weeks out now so it might just be posted their when it's done.

As far as the water issues go that topic has been discussed with just about every hood for every make and model car hood that has open louvers. I think anyone who has concerns could do a search about water in the engine bay. They could then read the necessary info regarding this and make a judgement on weather or not they would want something like that on their car.

Re: Thoughts???

in theory, would hooking up the air intake to those vents provide some sort of induction? or is it for letting underhood heat go out?

I don't think that it would induct any air. By the looks of it, it would draw air from under the hood. So it will definatly draw heat out, but not force air in.

Re: Thoughts???

Looks good from the photos. Your other hood looks bad ass too though!

IMHO I would be more interested in this hood than the viper style hood just because it is not as loud and in your face. I also like the medic hood but I know the quality issues it has suffered. The reason I like the medic hood is the cowl fits the lines of the jeep and the front edge of the hood has the stock "blockinees" whereas your viper hood is more rounded. Will this hood have the stock style front edge to it?

I have a pic of an amg black series mercedes as a wallpaper right now and it has a hood very similar to this new creation you are working on and it looks classy along with being aggressive.

Re: Thoughts???

Yes Dave the hood will not change at all.
The only thing it will have is these two vents flushed in NO COWL at all at least that's the plan unless I run into clearance problems.
So it will remain blocky as hell as you can see the vents have a real chiseled look to them very blocky just like the Jeep.

Re: Thoughts???

another sweet design..... I think you are on to something with the price... from the reaction here, it looks like coming in at, or under 800, looks like thats the way to go to make some good coin.
The rule I learned was, make a little money off of a lot of people, not a lot of money off of a few.... Good job!
