Run Cool Hood Louvers

What are your opinions on these???
They do look interesting.....
Here are a few pics of them installed on some cars/trucks:






They do kinda remind me of those cheap stick-on Pep Boys type things though...

Of all the vehicles you pictured, they look natural on the Durango. I don't care for them too much.

They look OK on the jeep, but the Tacoma hood is perfect without these.

Hmmm.. interesting.

I would like to see a way to help pull some of that hot air out from under the hood. I wonder how it would look on a black hood.. I may have to photochop some to see if they look good.

ABSOLUTLY GROSS!!!!!! That's my humble opinion...The stock hood scoop for the Tacoma looks a lot better and I am in the process of trying to make mine funtional without opening up a can of worms with water, bug and dirt intake....

$129.00 for the small/ like $160.00 for the large!!!! Why not just pick-up some $5 soffit vent and rivet it to the hood???

Adding vents and air flow is one thing, but I dont know about all those rivets! Even stainless rivets will oxidize, dis-color, etc... Plus you normally will get rust at the drill holes where you took it down to bare metal.

The only way I would consider something like that would be with fiberglass. It would be a major project, and require removal of the hood (at least for me to do it).
