Would it be a big deal if you purchased 3 small scoops and put them onto your Jeep? If my eyes do not deceive me, it looks like the '97 uses 3 sets of 7-slots for the grill and the '98 and up uses just a single-set of 7-slots.

There is a local company that makes all kinds of plastic-stuff for vehicles (OEM supplier) and they might be able to do a couple of runs of the scoop if there is enough interest and if they can drop-ship the whole lot into a warehouse ..

sorry to somewhat hi jack, but still air scoop related.

http://www.quadratec.com/products/13006_410.htm

I really wanna get this scoop for when i do my cowl CAI. Everytime i see it for sale it says 98-02. Is there a difference in the cowl between 02 and 05? All other scoops say 98-06. Anybody confirm this for me?

a couple of years ago there was a guy on ebay that made custom ones and he made them for 97's also. thats a good idea to use the sunroof deflector!

Yes, 97 was the only year for the cowl that used this wider scoop. 98-06 used the smaller version, so 9 years of production gave a wider market base and only one year of production would not be a broad enough customer base to warrant further production runs on this product. So no more of this one.

Here is mine.

Nice looking rig LSU TJ so, it doesn't matter whether the scoop is facing the front bumper or the back bumper? I am guessing because of the air flow against the windshield causing a down draft???

Thanks igrok.

Facing with the inlet backward, toward windshield, would not restrict flow but would be considered turbulent flow. With the inlet facing forward like mine it is basically a type of forced induction. However, I don't really think it makes a big difference or matters which way you face it for this application, more of a looks thing really. Do it which ever way you like best.


I do get some additional positive pressure in the air system but not a big difference.

leaning the hood all the way back against the windshield multiple times has left a scratch on my hood.

that and when i laid the windshield down to install my cage, it was just tall enough to crack my windshield.


so, its gone. anyone?

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!!!
