Future JKU Build: Vented Hood Search

Hello Jeep Forum Community,

Brand new member here, here's a quick background of myself:

-Finance professional in the Pittsburgh, PA area
-Lifelong Jeep enthusiast
-Current owner of a 2005 Ford Five Hundred, saving for first ever Jeep
-Model: 2015 or newer Wrangler Unlimited Sport S (manual transmission, black, body color hardtop)
-Looking to start with a stock Sport S and gradually add to the build over the next few years

While I was perusing some Google Image pictures of JKU rigs to get some inspiration for my build, I came across this hood and instantly fell in love:



Kind of reminds me of the new Rubicon Hard Rock hood, only with an additional front hood scoop and side vents. I've searched all over the Internet for a vendor that sells this exact hood, and haven't had any luck. Not sure if the hood vents and scoop are functional or just purely aesthetic. I was just wondering if anyone has this hood on their Wrangler and/or if they know the make and model of this hood. Thanks in advance for the help!

the only hoods i have looked at were the CF ones. weight is everything. Oddly the CF ones cost LE$SS$ than any of the other metal ones made. even a stock hood cost more? if any of those vents are real water is going into the bay. they will fill with snow and ice as well in winters. just a thought if it matters

I agree with the doc on the reality of the vents on the hood flats and--

That longitudinal center scoop would miss the actual intake arrangement and be of no use under 80 miles per hour anyway, so

A hood like that would please the owner for aesthetics--nothing else !

Good luck
