97 Jeep TJ, can not find an air scoop??? Anyone know where to get one?

I have a 1997 Jeep Wrangler TJ and have looked high and low for an air scoop. The unit would measure approx 33" long. All I can find out there are for 98's and up. Outland (model 5306) made one but it appears that they have been discontinued. Have tried 12 different websites, including JC Whitney and eBay, to no avail. My buddy has one on a 98 and makes a big difference in the cabin airflow.
Does anyone know who might have this item to fit my jeep or know of anyone that will custom make it in the Atlanta area??? THANKS!!!

I have been looking for the same. I checked Quadratec's site but they only have them listed for 98 and up, no 97.

Its because of the the cowl. We have more sections that have the slots. Every other TJ has just one section. If you really want a scoop you can grab a cowl from a different year TJ and throw that on.

Buy my transmission cooler. Derale TJ cooler.

I have a 97 also.they used to make one for just them but not anymore.1997 were alone in the vent on the cowl.the 1998s and up use a smaller opening.

Does it really make that much of a difference? Not trying to be a [email protected], really a serious question.

No. 97s had ventilation problems from the factory.why they redesigned the 1998 and newer models.

I have never been in a Jeep with the scoop, but I am curious if it helps getting more heat in the winter.

Jeep build up...ONGOING

I've had water leak inside the cab from the solid section of the black plastic under the vents. It managed to seep through the plastic/metal join and make it's way to the corner of the plastic on the underside. From there it was directly above the air intake where it leaked down into the passenger footwell. Maybe that's why it changed.

Hey" herTJ hiswork" Do you by chance have a phot of the one you made? Here is a link to one of the Outland Model 5306's for sale. However, I can't seem to get an answer as to whether they actually have it in stock. http://www.jeepparts4x4.com/product_...oducts_id=1623

Something else is wrong if you can't get enough heat.Blocked heater core etc.

Do they work? Yes, they are an excellent debris trapping device. Leaves, litter, snow,,,pretty much anything in the air will quickly jamb up the scoop.
The PO of my Jeep installed one, and I promptly removed it. No problems.

If you actually get a scoop, make sure the open end is towards the windshield,,,,not the front bumper. (at least that's the proper way of mounting them on 98's and newer)
