        One washer hole.

        As advertised. Be aware that even if you buy the one for 2 washer hole hoods you will get one with 1 hole and some extra tubing.

        Great Product

        Packaging and instructions were very good. Fitment was correct and I did not have any issues installing. Have noticed hood is stronger and have reduced hood "flutter" Definitely recommend this product!

        Jk hood louver

        Looks great. Hoping for it to function as good as it looks. Fairly easy install. Well crafted! Side screws are a little long in a couple spots. Hit x brace under hood skin. Not deal breaking though. Would recommend.

        Tough Looking Vent

        I bought this vent to help keep the engine compartment cooler by allowing more air to pass through. The item was well packed and came with thorough instructions, template and all hardware needed. You will need to paint the hood webbing underneath as you will see them through the vent; I recommend a flat black. Installation was fairly simple and easy.

        Great look

        Hemed and hawed about cutting the hood for this. Glad I did as this makes the Jeep look great and it does help keep the engine bay cooler along with the Viair pump. Make sure you have some flat black paint handy to black out the hood braces after you cut the hood or they will show from in the cab. Great mod and it gets lots of looks

        5 2009 - Barrett09 Installation Time: Full Day

        HIGHLY recommended!

        I took a bit longer than needed to install the vent. Most of that time was bonding the cut edges of the under hood insulation for it would fray and come apart. It really looks great and best of all it DOES keep the engine compartment cooler and oddly enough cleaner. If I was to do it again, I most certainly would do the same thing all over again, except I'd use black pop rivets instead of the supplied screws and I still might do that.
