two questions: does the High-Lift clear the snorkel when you raise the hood? How much harder is raising the hood with the High-Lift mounted there?

The weight of the high lift is minimal on opening th hood as its right by the hinge and you have the whole hood as a lever arm....

At standard opening, where the hood support rod, gets tuck into the hood, the hi lift just touches the cap....I'm going to drop the cap about 2" = no more issues.

The cap is held on with 3 screws and can be easliy removed if need to invert the hood to the windshield frame...

You have to buy new windshield hinges or drill and tap yours to mount these

Hey NHfireYJ,

What vent panels are on your hood? I've been kicking a few around but hadn't seen those!

Thanks,
Carl.

Awesome!

I like the look of the Hummer intake lowered, too. Nice job and a bada$$ looking rig!
