You may also consider 5.9 hood vents & drip pans instead of louvers, the drip pans will make the vents water-worry free.

agreed. and since they are removable, adjusting them to suit the weather wouldn't be too much of an issue.

Or drip pans under the louver panel...

If it's worth doing, then it's worth overdoing.

Nice, that seems to elude most people.

FWIW, many of the guys in the XJ crowd run hood vents without any drip tray. I cut these into my hood in 2009 with no drip trays and have had zero issues. This is a daily driver and has spent a winter and many rainstorms parked outside. We get plenty of snow, rain, hail and heat. While at a stoplight the heat coming out of these vents will deform your vision if you look over them at the right angle.








I know that you'll likely fabricate some kindof slick draining louver that's easily detachable and doubles as a sammich oven, but I wanted to demonstrate that it's not absolutely critical.

I love all the ideas that are showing up!

Today's Jeeping: I'll probably keep playing with the compressors, and start to ponder on some further "hey, this is totally wasted space" notions that I've had from time to time. I've got a digital camera back in hand, now, so I can FINALLY finish up the pictures for the first Toolkit installment! YES! PARTY! BONUS! Still no video capability, though, so I'm delayed on the final brake summary. But to update you...they just keep getting better.

If it's worth doing, then it's worth overdoing.

I've looked at both those and the Poison Spyder models.
