If that part wasnt so dam expensive , its a great way to help the cooling system. A lot of people use hole saws and drill on the side of the hood , put screen behind the holes , call it free or done . It helps also.  FjR68

I have some stainless sheet I like to make vents out of. Need to find someone that does louvers. It's an old hot rod thing and a dyeing art.

Venting the fenders does help but the heat is under the hood. Venting the hood provides the best heat release.

How long did it take you to gain the confidence to cut the hood ?

I know really...I said no way and then for some reason I was feeling overconfident  ..... lol...worked out pretty well, just have to be careful not to cut the main supports and destroy the integrity of the hood.

My concern was ice but I've talked to New England guys with that PS hood vent and have no issue.

I’ve had no issues with water or ice getting in the louvres since installing them a couple months ago.  But with that being said my jeep sleeps on the garage so it only sees rain when driving forward.     There is a lip on the highest point that seems to keep water out that comes from the windshield.  No issues thus far and I can often see heat rising from them
