I did paint the entire hood after I did the cuts. I may at some point go back and run a bead of silicon.

What would the silicon achieve? Nothing.

I misread what you said first, thought you meant there's no reason not to... But yeah to answer your question, some guys do it to keep water from getting between the two pieces of metal, but if the paint is there to protect it, then I see no reason to.

I bought my TJ in april 2012 and quickly became a fan of poison spyder. The slow movement through trail really trapped the heat under the hood. Quite simply heat rises and just goes through the holes, it works. Adds a nice look as well.

Here is mine...Seems I didn't have the footman loops on yet when I took the pic.



I like it a lot though and get compliments on it. A bit of a pain to clean with all of the louvers

Don't confuse what this does with what the radiator does. Your engine is liquid cooled and the radiator is what helps dissipate heat from that. There is no substitute for having that cooling system working properly. I don't believe this will produce material changes in engine operating temperature. It definitely didn't for me.

There are things under your hood though that get a lot hotter than 210 and the heat from them is not necessarily good to have trapped under there (e.g. heatsoak issue that some TJs have as an example). These allow that heat to dissipate and overall keep everything under the hood from baking.

Love it. I would like to get one in a couple months. Anyone have pics of one with a bedliner on it?

Really like the look of these. Sorry if this sounds like a dumb question... But what about severely colder temps and/or colder climates? I can see this being useful in summer, but what about the rest of the year?

Your engine is going to warm up either way, I don't see a negative to this in the colder climates, maybe take a little longer to get the heat going full blast.

Guess i used the wrong smiley face haha. Fixed it now lol. I dont expect this to make my jeep that much cooler. However I do expect it to make it look badass

Don't think so. I think there was a thread a year or so ago where somebody tried to fill in the logo somehow and then paint over to make it all look clean.
