        What are the dimensions of the Daystar hood cowl thx

        • At this time we do not have a listing for the dimensions of this cowl.

        I currently have the poison spider hood louver on my jeep. Could I remove that and install this cowl instead ?

        • So long as no fabrications have been made with the hood itself and it has maintained the existing structure of the factory hood this would be a great replacement.

        Helpful (0)

        How far from the hood leading edge is the opening? I have the center vent (uninstalled) but was thinking it might be nice to upgrade later. It looks like the cowl opening is much further back than the plain vent option.

        • There will be 5 inches from the leading edge of the hood to the opening that would be cut out of the hood.

        What color does it come in - unfinished, primed black? Order your own color? Thaanks

        • From my understanding, it will arrive in an unpainted black finish. At this time, we do not currently offer this cowl in a pre-painted application. We generally recommend having a paint/body shop prime and paint the cowl before installation.

        I'm assuming this hood kit would not allow fitment of a 20" LED hood bracket mounted light bar?

        • Thank you for your question! The hood scoop would interfere with hood mounts for a LED lightbar.

            Daystar Hood Cowl

            finish on hood cowl is good. the template is accurate. the fit, well here is where the big problem lies. only after drilling multiple small holes, and making one big hole in my jeeps hood. I find that the front of the cowl does not match the contours of the jeeps hood. the front corners stick up about an 1/8" at each corner. it looks awful!! there is no way to test fit beforehand, as the cowl has the studs molded into it, and cannot be removed to check fit. I now have to try and recontour the front edge without damaging the finish of the vinyl wrap that I have already applied. I'm not happy at all!! I would not recommend this if you like you jeep!!!

            Daystar hood cowl

            The hood cowl lowers the temp under the hood by about 10 degrees. You should plan on doing body work on this hood cowl if you're going to paint it to match. The fit was great.

            Great way to improve your jeep

            This is an easy way to improve the look of your jeep without having to buy another hood. The best part is that unlike most of the replacement hoods out there this will let you keep your side stickers on your hood that say "Rubicon" Installation was easy and Daystar has a video that shows just how easy it is to install; I installed my hood cowl and my side vents at the same time with no problem. The only thing that I had difficulty with was that the vent trim ring was not uniform and had to be grinded down to make it even, but other than that it was a breeze.
