Fiberglass Hood

I got whacked the other day by a kid throwing a full soda can out a school bus window.
It damaged my hood and windshield. The School District agreed to pay for the damages.
I'm looking for a fiberglass vented hood and can't find it. I think I saw it in a Quadratec magazine?

Hmm...I'm going to slash my tires and take a hammer to the wheels and say some kid did it before he got on the bus.

Over the mountains and through the woods, across the stream and up the slickrock, down the canyon and over the rocks to nobody's house I go.

I got the 'Max Air Ram Air Hood' from www.carhoods.com, I'm pretty darn happy with it, I've noticed a substantial decrease in intake air temp with it (at least according to my scan gauge. It seems prices have increased a bit since when I got mine I paid ~400.00 for it.

You will have to open the air port(s) yourself, they are shipped solid. They have a number of styles, one should fit your bill of being fiberglass with vents. I've linked a couple below:

Thanks Knightfire, This hood had a vent at the front and created a vacuum to keep the engine compartment cooler. The guy that invented it did several air flow studies.
I could have sworn I saw a write-up on this forum.

No worries
The hood I have is vented in the front (1st pic shown), much like any 'ram air' hood. It sounds like your looking for something very specific...besides a basic vented fiberglass hood...hope your able to find it!

is it just me or is OMAN4x4's jeep the one in Qtec's ad?





I like the high hood. There arn't any coverage laws here, but everything would be thrown up on your jeep while on the street. That and I would catch the "fender" on a tree and rip it apart. The local shop has two in stock They are pretty good quality
