This is one of the many incarnations ( rofl ) of Swamp Boy's ZJ. He used vents from a Chrysler Lebaron Turbo.

And here's another set he's installing, but I'm not sure what they're out of.

do you have to be careful where you put them, so water do drip on important things?

Basically, all that is is adding washers or homemade spacers to the hood hinge mounts. You want enough space to break the seal from the rubber seal.

I have a V8 so the only thing under those vents is the exhaust manifolds..

If you are worried about it .. you can always fashion some kind of thin gauge sheet metal to keep the water out of there.. It wouldnt be that hard..


And if you look hard enough you could even find the interior vents that are on the factory hoods.
