What is this vent on the Gladiator’s hood? It looks to be in the same place as the snorkel cut out so I assume it’s for air intake. I think I’ve also seen it on a JL but can’t find it. What is it and can we get it? It looks awesome and if it improves air intake, I want it! :)

Here’s the link to the video

I believe that’s the cover for if you decide to take the Mopar snorkel off.
That makes sense. Can anyone with a snorkel confirm? Does the kit include this cover?

I think mac is correct--

That's where the INTAKE for the 3.5/ 3.6 has always been --just AEV sold hoods with that "cutout"-

Who cares ?

I care, that’s why I asked. This question is about Jeep/Mopar not AEV. Your comment isn’t helpful.

Stumbled across a Gladiator video that explained. It’s a new Mopar cold air intake and it looks awesome! Fingers crossed it’ll be abilable for JL.

You can add a CAI from the factory now for 495$, wonder if that changes the hood. (On the JL)

You go through a lot of streams that are over the top of your fender?

There have been more HYDROLOCKED JEEP ENGINE'S from=shallow puddles than DEEP STREAM'S--

If you don't know that--you should readup on HYDROLOCKED JEEPS!!!

It's ok. I don't plan on buying one of these anyways. CAI's are a waste.

I doubt it is for cold air intake, unless it will be an aftermarket item. Look at the air box. It looks like an inlet for a future snorkel. Look at the way it is cut to the bottom of the hood. So the hood can be opened, with a snorkel in place.
