I've done my own vents:

Been through rain and snow with no issues. The temperature doesn't seem to drop significantly but it's letting heat out that's for sure. It's visibly obvious at a standstill.

You want to reduce engine temps? Run your heater core hose to the rear of your jeep and back and it'll drop the temps 10-15 degrees, i guarantee it ;) I just discovered this. :cheers:

You could always cut a 1' hole in your hood and put a fan over it :rofl:

But seriously, check ebay for hood vents. Occasionally they will be on there for dirt cheap.

And whats wrong w/ my hood heat release method? its only a 2'x1' hole w/ mesh w/ a fan under that. look at my pics, but it could be personal taste.....
I have nothing against the way you did yours, it looks like a bigger vent. The guy that I was referring to has a huge hole in his hood, with a fan on top of the hood. It just looks thrown together and sloppy. I'm all for clean looking mods, but his just looked [email protected]$$ed.
