Keep in mind, adding stuff under the hood affect cooling too as the air has to flow somewhere.
Extra doors.. not at this time. Not a bad suggestion
I think Rubicon should come with ram air duct (as in European cars having ram air ducted to brake rotors to help keep them cool). Rubicon should anticipate the front being equipped with a winch and additional lights, so ram air duct should be made available.
For me temp is Ok in low speed driving, but it runs hot at highway speed, so if more air can be redirected to radiator it would help maintain the normal temp.
Test next year model with a biggest winch mounted on front bumper in extended highway speed driving with AC on.
