the stock ones are functional, they dont suck in air though. the cold moving air passes over and draws out the hot engine bay air, think of the way the sunroof works.

They don't look functional from the underside, but they are. They have drip trays on them to guide water out to the edges of the engine bay. Those plastic trays don't extend all the way up to the hood, so air is drawn through above them.

You're 5.9L doesnt have pep? Gas pedal is on the right
According to my performance vs. mileage scale, you sacrifice one for the other..

And as for the rims just sell 'em and you'll have a healthy budget for new rims and tires

Interesting thread.... I'm interested in hood vents due to the heat soak issue with my 4.0L. Are there aftermarket hood vents?

I'm sure there are, but most ZJ guys just use the ones from a 5.9 or Pontiac Gran Prix's.

I figured out the as pedal sucked down $40 in two days, getting just over 12miles per gallon,

how can I make these vents work, any place to get the lower trays?

what about the best performance mod for the money?
