Re: Jeep XJ Fiberglass hood?

Spacers on the hinges, to get some of the air out?

X2 spacers on the cowl side of the hood will help vent heat.

Re: Jeep XJ Fiberglass hood?

We can't cut, message, or modify the stock sheet metal, inside or out, other than to run tube through for a cage. Aftermarket fiberglass front fenders are allowed, but that's it, no rear quarter panels or hoods. The fenders are allowed because we're allowed to trim the fenders for tire clearance.

Re: Jeep XJ Fiberglass hood?

Do these work with the stock latches or are hood pins required?

you would need to run hood pins. The ones posted above with the reinforcement on the underside are made to bolt up to the stock hinges, but you still need to run pins in the front.

Re: Jeep XJ Fiberglass hood?

my bad, i know this is an old thread but i have a couple of questions about this hood and i didn't think it warranted starting a whole new thread...

anywho, is this JS1 legal? also, it appears to be molded to look like a cowl induction/ram air-type hood, does that affects the aerodynamics at all? like the hood scoop at the front that doesn't have any openings for the air to pass through... or are you supposed to cut some vent holes in it yourself after you order it? n00b questions, i'm sure. ;P

one more: i installed a SatoFab prerunner style front bumper a few months ago, but i've read that JS1 only accepts stock front and rear bumpers... or is a readily-available bumper still legal?

thanks! <3

Nada. You have to retain the stock bumpers.
