I've also been looking into modifying the Jk one. Does anyone know the difference between a TJ and Jk hood hinge?

Nothing that is blinding to the driver, or obnoxious.

The nozzles are affected a little. The fluid still sprays the windshield, just some of it hits the bottom of the lightbar. If you had a single row light bar with a shorter housing, it would not hit.
An ever-so slight increase in the height of the mounts would solve the issue all together. I have talked to Dan about this.
