    Default AEV Heat Reduction Hood

    Has anyone put the AEV Heat Reduction Hood on their 4 door JK?

    If so does it improve performance much?

    Do you have do worry about rain/mud/ect getting into your engine?

    not sure about the jk but with the tj I saw a huge drop in my underhood temp. I would be willing to bet that they kept up the good work when they did the jk.
    I have no problems with water getting in but I do not do any "real" water crossings. with still running a d35 and a rubber plug I try to stay out of crap untill I can get stuff a little more water tight.

    I ran the hood all spring and summer but pulled it and put the stocker back on just due to the fact that it's not painted and we just moved to a new neighborhood. Didn't want the new neighbors going oh gawd what just moved in next to us?

    Default AEV Highline Hood

    I have their hood on my TJ with high line flat fenders and love it, it is made as good or better then the stock hood. I installed an electric fan at the same time so that said yes the engine runs cooler and no problem with rain or snow. No change as far as the engine getting more crud on it. The hood is very well made and I think it is thicker metal then the stock hood. Well worth the money.

    One of the driving factors of them creating this hood was the Hemi swaps and helping to keep them cool.
