        cool your engine

        I work my engine hard on these Rocky Mountain trails. Wanted to give her a break and help keep it as cool as possible. was a little wary of cutting on my hood with a jig saw but with a hardened steel blade was no problem. fairly easy install.

        A lot cooler

        Very easy install. And definitely cools the engine area. You can feel the heat coming out of engine area by putting your hand over the top of the vent

        Daystar Side Hood Vents

        got these on the recommendation of a friend. I probably should have gotten some better tools to cut the hood, but it came out ok. The fit is ok, and that probably goes back to getting the right tools for the job. Took the jeep out for a drive and was amazed at the site of heat billowing out of the top of the hood. I really recommend these vents.

        Worth the Money!

        If you are a JK owner you know just how hot the engine compartment gets. This pretty simple modification helped me in a big way. I combined it with the center vent for all three and noticed a significant difference in the performance of my 3.8 with the reduced heat. Can be a little tricky to cut and I highly recommend using a jig saw with a thin metal blade for a clean and radius cut. Well worth it!

        Do what they say!!

        Nice addition to the JK that typically run hot. Hardware is very short so it takes some time to get them correctly installed but overall it is a nice set-up. Dropped my engine compartment about 40 deg. F from the stock hood. Would recommend for anyone looking to squeak out just a few more horses from your motor.

        Looks amazing on

        First of all, extreme terrains "standard shipping" always comes overnight for me (which is exciting). I love how these vents look on, installation wasn't too bad. I'll try to get a picture up soon. I recommend it
