Hood scoops on a WJ...opinions needed
 
OK guys and gals,

I've been wanting to do some kind of mod to my stock hood. I like the idea of subtle (ish) scoops on the hood, something kinda like this;

or possibly even the reverse of this, so that the mesh end is facing the windshield. It would be purely cosmetic. I could of course have a hood made but I'm saving my pennies just now and looking for a relatively cheap alternative. Personally I'm not too keen on the idea of the stick on type scoops, as they leave a seam all round, but it would seem that is the only alternative.

Any opinion, ideas etc are most welcome:thumbsup:

Dude, your Jeep is a little crooked in that second pic....may want to have that looked at...heheheheh.

I'd say no to scoops since you're not racing it. Maybe vents if you have a heat issue...but that's just my opinion. I would be more concerned with stuff getting in (mud, snow, rain) than anything else.

That Jeep is an absolute beast man. Nicely done!

That Jeep ain't mine dude. Thats just a google pic that I came up with on a search. Its the WARHOG jeep on JF. They're the type of scoops I'm thinking of. My Jeep is for the street mostly. Just a plain (ish) black WJ

http://t0.gstatic.com/images?q=tbn:A...EtsQL0p5hC56WA Found this searching around Google image...I don't know dude...I'm not feelin' scoops on a GC unless it's a molded hood. The single, centered look is a little smoother.

I thought that Jeep you posted was maybe your 2nd rig or something.

The issue with the center of the hood is that it obviously has the 2 1/2" wide trough right down the center of it.

I had my hood custom done to cover my supercharger. Looks pretty bad ass in person.

Yeah I did notice that gap is pain in the ass. I may have to give this a lot more thought
