Cooling up grade for the XJ?

I have a 2000 xj with the 4.0 and am looking for cooling upgrades to help it cool easier in the summer. I am getting ready to do a radiator flush and change out some hoses and therostate. Is there anything I can do to help it cool easier especially when the AC is running. Would rather not to some expensive upgrade but is it seems mandatory then may have to consider it.

I'm not opposed to doing hood vents but is there ones you can do that rain won't get in on the engine or am I being too paranoid?

Don't worry too much about the rain, if you are driving at any speed when it rains a ton blows through the grill anyway

I've had no issues with the vents in my hood. Even power washing it doesn't do anything, you should be fine.

If you mean niner vents on the fenders, they do nothing, just for looks.
Try looking for an 80s dodge k-car turbo. They have good vents or so ive heard.
