    Default Hood Vent Funny

    Well we got back late this afternoon and while the wife was downstairs studying I got to measuring and taping and marking the hood for my hood vents. Well I had a ladder beside the jeep and used it to get up on the tire so I could start cutting the holes and here she comes out the door. She looks at me standing on the tire with a grinder in my hand with a cutting disk and says. Im not even going to ask what your doing and walks on.

    Kinda sounds like my wife every time she walks into the garage when I'm tinkering with the jeep. Just shakes her head, says something thats makes little sense to me and goes back inside.

    It the saying "It's a Jeep thing, You wouldn't understand" or at least that's what I tell my wife

    I'm off Wed/Thur/Fri/Sat this coming week. I mentioned to the Mrs. what I had thought about installing in the Jeep, and some things I wanted to do to the Jeep. Ha, she informed me nicely what I was actually going to do. It started with " We(meaning me) need to ",,,,

    That is the way that it goes though, sacrifices for future mistakes.

    I have hood vents to install on mine. If you don't mind posting photos of how you do yours, I would like to see where you have them placed.

    Thanks. Whenever you get them installed, I just want to see where you have them positioned. i bought some vents off of Fred here and I want to install them before heading to Texas, but if you ask 10 different people where they should go, you get 10 different suggestions. I just want to see what is working for others and try to work of of that.

    I like the looks of it. We had looked at putting mine somewhere more towards the front following the edges of the top of the hood. I may go out tomorrow and see how they will look that far back. Thanks for the pics.
