If I am understanding your question correctly, post #82 in this closed thread https://www.jlwranglerforums.com/forum/threads/aev-jl-products-on-the-way-sema-2018.17395/page-6, @AEVRogue (who appears to be employed at AEV) says the hood on the JKU is a sport hood (not an AEV designed one like on the JK).I’m wondering how the AEV hood differs from a sport hood with a snorkel cutout.
AEV didn't even release photos prior to SEMA, much less hand one over to a pool girl.It was on a JL. Maybe they put a JK AEV rear bumper on it and made it work.. It was a totally stock JL Sahara otherwise. I thought maybe the dealer had done it.
