Nothing factory. Unless you're talking about the 1998 Limited 5.9 hood with the functional vents... That was the only ZJ with any type of cowl from the factory.

McNeil makes a fiberglass hood that looks OK for $350.

You could try to cut out a section and attach some aftermarket scoop to the hood, but it would be VERY hard to keep it from looking really stupid. Also probably not something you're going to want to try with an original 5.9 hood. I don't recommend it.

Save your money, TB spacers don't work in the Magnum motors. The stock keg is already huge.
