AEV’s all steel Heat Reduction Hood provides both fresh intake air and critical under hood cooling. With its clean, fluid lines, this hood’s design is not only functional but also adds distinctive styling to your JK.
The central vent of the Heat Reduction Hood is positioned to take advantage of the low-pressure area created at the front edge of the Hood when the vehicle is in motion. Since air moves from high pressure to low pressure areas, the placement of the center vent causes cooler outside air to be drawn through the radiator and up through the Hood.
The stamped steel Heat Reduction Hood features OE-style crumple zones and comes ready to paint in an e-coated finish. The side mesh inserts are removable to accommodate the installation of AEV’s Snorkel Kit.
Note: The 2013 JK Wrangler now features dual windshield washer nozzles. Our current Heat Reduction Hood design accepts a single windshield washer nozzle. We suggest that our customers simply replace the t-fitting and dual windshield washer lines with a single windshield washer line and a straight barbed fitting when installing our Heat Reduction Hood on a 2013 JK Wrangler. You will also need to purchase part # 55156728AB from Mopar, which is the earlier model windshield washer nozzle.
