What is your view on the effectiveness of Air Scoops
I'm planning on doing a few tiny modifications this summer. One of which, I'm considering adding a Air Scoop to the hood of my jeep. The site claims it improves heating/ac efficiency. Which would obviously be nice in the winter. Anyone try one of these out? If so, what was your experience, have you noticed any changes, do you think it's worth it?
By the way, I drive an 04 TJ, and the scoop doesn't look like it would interfere with my windshield sprayer, like it would in earlier models.
I use one for the vent option in summer and winter. Summer it's facing toward the windshield and moving more air through the cab in the jeep and in the winter it's facing forward and restricting air and keeping the girlfriend happy.
hi lift hood mount is up high enough to clear the vent, although i forsee issue with getting the hood to lock into place in the upright position due to clearance issues- may have to remove jack to accomplish it
Mount it to the rear and put some of that A/C filter material under it to get clean air for your A/C and heater.

You're missing an option for your poll: "I don't care about airflow, I like scoops because they look aggressive."
Because that's me.
