Wow- I totally missed this comment! Lol as u would know- I got off work grabbed a 2day old T-shirt & adidas sweats off the floor and threw it on- my bad would u prefer a baggy shirt? Lol I'll note that next time. I guess I should off grab something out of our over-issued military junk pile in the garage, But my bad

besides 34dd is hard to prevent cleavage- hey it was my present to myself after a Kuwait deployment, aiding Kuwaitis how to build things to US standards. Can u blame me? Seeing that they don't like female bosses

On another topic- I do try my hardest to fit in with boys- it's just harder to do but add on a couple belches/farts + jokes then I'm almost there

My over issued military junk pile doesn't have the same affect as yours would! If you can Dutch oven your husband, I think your on the right track..

I'd call it primarily cosmetic. It will help with underhood temps but it's not likely to be a make or break mod if you're running hot. The engine compartment on a jeep isn't tightly sealed to begin with and the best way to pull real heat out would be venting the top of the hood and not the sides.

If I'm not mistaken Stogie had a large reduction in under hood temps.

I don't post much yet, and have only been a member since last June, but I no doubt speak for the vast majority here when I say Don't discourage her!

Cleavage makes me pay more attention to "how to" threads.
Great write up.

Using my Scangauge II I saw on average a 30degree drop in intake temperature.

Looks good Jade. I may consider doing this myself since I need to repaint my hood anyway. Of course with my luck, I'd end up making it so that it whistles when I reach 60 mph.
