I just installed mine today, only issue I ran into was that the template did not match the hood or louver where the single windshield nozzle sprayer is.
It doesn't matter, but when you line all the other holes up for the windshield tie down strap and bump stops, the template nozzle sprayer mark was off. Had me confused til I put the actual louver on top of the template and realized the template was just wrong and nothing else.
Also, the hex wrench bolt heads are pretty easy to strip, I've got two I need to replace now. They stripped before they were halfway tightened. So be careful on them.
I left mine in bare aluminum on a black jeep, nice contrast. We'll see how it does in the sunshine though.

Hey Dusty, so how's the 97 - 02 hood louvers coming along?
Nothing new to report.

There are 26 each: 10-32 X 3/4 stainless steel button head cap screws, with a #10 SS flat washer and a 10-32 nyloc nut.
Be careful when selecting a finish. Black oxide will rust. Not sure what other black finishes you can get.

We've found that the change to the single nozzle was sort of random, so go by how many nozzles you have, not the year model.

Can't I just drill two holes in the 03-06 one for the frickin' nozzles?
We've had several customers that installed the one-nozzle louver on their 2-nozzle hood. You'll need to source a single-nozzle, and cut the hood to fit it, then do a little plumbing to the fluid lines underneath.
