I installed a Gobi roof rack and KC Pro6 light bar. I love the rack and the lights!

Sweet, that doesn't look as high as i thought it would be. Is that the special SOT rack or the regular one?

I checked the backorder on my wheels and continued to sit impatiently for the rest of my parts so I can get the Lift, Gears, Steering, Wheels and Tires installed :CWL:

Huh? Raised the hood? Unless you live in the desert, the Jeep is designed to accommodate the heat that comes from the engine. I don't get this one at all...sorry. To each his own.
I live in SoCal and wheel hot dry dusty deserts and mountains. I like the A/C on and windows up when wheeling hot and or dusty conditions. This seems to put a heavy tax on the cooling system when crawling because my fan runs on high a lot. Having a winch in front of the grill doesn't help. Also the winch and ARB twin onboard air both have big battery draws and require the motor to be idling when in use. These often kick up the fan speed. Also, on the trail when motor is shut down for short periods. The engine temperature rises to the point where when motor is started back up the fan runs on high for awhile. The cooling system does work but when the fan is on high as needed it's rather annoying.
Thinking I can't add more air flow in but I can allow more air out. I simply raised the back of the hood as an experiment. Much easier and reversible vs cutting in hood vents which seems to be the norm.

I can attest to fact the cover works great!!
Pretty cool. Off topic but this is a good example of how much bigger the JL got vs the TJ back in the day. I remember going to full doors on my TJ and complaining about losing arm room vs my half doors. Lol.

Sorry, but it looks like you rear ended someone.
Form follows function on my Jeep. If it vents better, it is what it is. A Jeep Thing.

I hadn't seen this before on Japanese cars, only VW Beetles with the lid raised for cooling.
