Where to buy Poison Spyder hood louver?

I'm looking into installing the PSC hood louver on my YJ. Is there a dealer here on the forum that sells at discount? I've been to the PSC website and the powdercoat one for my YJ is $188 dlvd. I checked the dealer page but didn't see one so if anyone can point me in the right direction that would be helpful. Thanks!

Use your imagination, not your wallet. I bought two additional vent grills (black part in front of windshield) and put them just inside the windshield fold down rests (happens to be above the exhaust manifolds of my V6). Only $8 for the pair from DAVEYSJEEPS.COM.

The only problem I have with that is the hood will now be directly open to the elements. I know, I know, that has been discussed over and over here and on other forums, but at least the PSC louver has the "reversed scoops" which minimize that. I also was looking at the Gen Right louvers. I have seen many different ways that people vent their hoods so I'm still debating on which way to go. I'm usually one who weighs price/form/function on EVERYTHING, but I will admit, I do like the look of the psc louver. Like I said though, I'm still up in the air which way to go.

I understand. I only had one instance where a bad rain prevented the Jeep from starting until it dried out, which was a pain. When I was in NY, I used to have steel covers for the vents to keep snow off things in winter, when I didn't need the cooling as much. Now that I'm in New Mexico (since 2011), open vents are not an issue.

Even with that though, I was thinking of making some sort of pan for each vent attached to the hood. Something that would not effect cooling flow, but route water elsewhere. It's just me though. Whenever I want to make a change to my Jeep, I go for the garage and it's tools before going to the catalog and credit card.
