Default New wrangler hood design

I'am working on an after market hood design for a wrangler. I would like some input.
The hood would retain most of the stock look but on the drivers side at the cowl the hood will have an opening. In the opening there will be a fixed carbon fiber tray with a short round cold air intake ducted to the throttle body.
The short CAI can be removed and a snorkle installed running up the passenger side windshield frame. It will look a little like the H1 air intake. It will be offered as a complete bolt on or if I can work it out a modular system where you could cut you steel hood to fit and buy the parts you need to finish.

Also what would be acceptable for a purchase price on the complete kit.

If I am reading this correctly.
The opening is on the driver side but if you want a snorkel it will run up the passenger side?
How are you crossing over?

Will there be a flexible section, or will it have to be removed to open the hood?

The hood is layed out so it opens as a stock hood nothing to be removed even with the snorkle installed. The snorkle can be put on or taken off with the hood closed and has no effect on the underhood plumbing to the throttle body.

SAAAWEEEET Thats what I needed to know. If I can get that much I think I'll offer a carbon fiber hood in whatever color you want, and free installation.

First off you are not the first person to think of this...in fact I'm working on a similar design myself, oddly enough using the H1 air cap...due to you planning on selling this I will not post pictures so you can't steal my design and if you do succeed with yours I plan on suing you for stealing my intellectual property. I hope this helps out!!

I was going to use the air cover off of a Caterpillar dozer. It makes for a bigger badder look. And Ha ha you can't sue cause I posted my idea first and I don't think you can do it for the 39.99 like I want to. Installed

I was thinking on bending up exhaust tubing to use for the snorkel paint it to match the body and then cap it off with the H1 air cap...I've also seen a couple done right out of the cowl using a three inch pipe using the H1 cap...both with look good.

Well I used to charge 69.69 installed, but to keep up with the competition I will lower my price to 39.99 when you hit the market with a copy of my trademarked and patented design.

I'am trying to stay with composite materials on the tray and the snorkle. I was thinking about a cap on the snorkle that would take air from the back side and this would keep more dust out of the system. The snorkle cap and the low cap when the snorkle is not installed would be two different pieces.

I'd pay $39.99, $69.99 or even $55.98 to watch someone match my paint color thats on my Jeep

Some people have a colors that can't be matched, unless you spend big money or know someone :tonka:
