Cool That Engine!
The Poison Spyder Hood Louver helps keep your engine running cool by
promoting airflow through the engine compartment. Many factors can
contribute to high under-hood temperatures, which can translate to
higher engine coolant temperatures and overheating. Headers, slow
speeds, flex fans, and the cramped spaces of the engine compartment can
all contribute to increased heat and reduced airflow. This Hood Louver
kit frees up airflow through the engine compartment, allowing hot air to
escape and cooler air to be drawn in through the radiator, improving
cooling of both the engine coolant and under-hood air. Rock-crawlers
and slow-moving vehicles are especially susceptible, as slower speeds
naturally result in reduced airflow.
In addition to improved cooling performance, Poison Spyder Hood Louvers
add great looks to your Jeep! The Poison Spyder Hood Louver looks
great on any Jeep, whether it is painted to match the body color or
powder coated a contrasting color. For convenience, it is available
either bare or powder coated black. Adding to the great looks are the
stainless steel button head cap screws used to fasten the louver to the
Good Value For the Price
A Poison Spyder Hood Louver is one of the best bang-for-your-buck
improvements you can do for your Jeep. Compare it to the cost of a
complete replacement hood with vents, such as those from AEV, and its
easy to see what a great value the Poison Spyder product is.
Poison Spyder Hood Louvers are crafted from quality, thick gauge
aluminum sheet. They are CNC laser-cut and precision die-stamped. Aluminum
makes the hood louver both light weight and corrosion resistant. But
its thick enough to add some rigidity to the Jeep's notoriously thin
sheetmetal hood, helping to reduce "hood wobble" at speeds.
Hood Louvers are fairly easy to install but do require some drilling
and cutting of your hood. Stainless steel fasteners are supplied, as
well as a full-size template with instructions for cutting the airflow
holes in the hood. Because
it is a one-piece design, specific for each model Jeep, installation is
a quick and easy. Competitors' hood louver products may include
multiple pieces that are painstaking to properly align and install,
while others provide no cut template, leaving you to figure out how best
to place the louver and cut the holes underneath.
We've put almost as much engineering into the packaging as we did for
the louver itself! As a rather large, unwieldy piece, it is imperative
that the Hood Louver be properly packaged to ensure against shipping
damage. Our custom box and CAD designed foam blocking are your best
insurance against the hassles of possible shipping damage.
