So, you're crawling around, cooling fan on, sucking heat into the engine compartment, the exhaust is radiating heat to the frame rails and inner fenders and the entire intake system is soaked with heat. Underhood temperatures rise significantly - and you either dump spark, or you rattle like a PSD.

You don't NOTICE any problems because your rig is overpowered and you can run retarded (heh heh) and not have it affect you. I'm not trying to piss in anyone's cheerios - I just get very aggravated when I see someone go through the trouble to do such a clean and beneficial install and then do something like this.
(it is like me, owning a 50" TV and not having anything but an antenna - true story )

I also realize the Jeeps are "special cases" on these swaps because:
1. There ain't no fawking room left once you stuff a V8 in a TJ;
2. You also have to consider water ingestion about a million times more than someone putting a "cold air" intake on a street car.

I think it would be an easy-ish fix to cure the underhood heat: Build a box around the filter that is closed on all sides and extends up to the hood. Have it seal on the bottom of the hood and either louver the area above it or add a standpipe / mushroom cap or something.
Yep, I agree completely. My underhood iat runs up around 160 right now. I plan on improving that asap. I want to do a box (like you explained) then have it pull air from the top of the hood or cowl.

Very nice clean build, but I'm wondering what differences you noticed when you switched to the recentered H1 wheels....I guessing your rotating mass increased quite a bit from the aluminum wheels you had before. Could you feel a performance loss? I guessing the Dana 30 is now screaming for mercy stuck between a 5.3L and heavy H1's.

Just so you know Porcheguy, I've been calibrating engine controls for about 20 years - specializing in combustion, spark and emissions control.
Oh whatever lol

I like what you're doing for the front swaybar - interested in how you affix the bar ends (splines or other means).

Looks great, Aaron...subscribed. I'm curious to see how you work the front sway bar, as well. Nice work.

Wow, I totally missed all the replies about heat. Yes, I understand it's still hot under there and I probably don't run as good as I could. But, like Scooter said, no room and keeping away from water are a couple major issues. With that in mind, my air cleaner is just behind my headlight where there is air flow around the headlight and also a couple other cutouts in the grill. Second, I have 3 louvers in my hood to help heat exhaust. Not as good as it could be but seems to run good. Maybe I will find a day when I have nothing better to do and I'll figure out a way to reroute it.

Back when I was still running a carb'd engine and an electric fan I had a lot of heat issues. During August at our annual week at the dunes I found removing my hood made a huge difference.

It's a fun little car. It has the 300hp 4.7 v8. I paid $1400 for the car and it only took a year to get it running. The 5spd it a little tired but my TJ has been soaking up most of my funds....

Got sick as Hell after the D44 was dropped off... Wife sick... kid..... The cash tree was bare after a TB/WP on the Jetta and Brakes for the 4runner. I was hopeful to make it to JCR to pick up a 1 ton steering kit(prob order a bumper or 2 also) but time ran out as I got the knuckles off the D30.

Traded off my old d30 to Mikeb2275 for a nice pair of Hella HID's! Also put in the D44 with the Siperlift Arms, JCR front bumper, new shocks, breaks, hub assy's, and JCR 1 ton steering after I ream the knuckles and pit arm.
