Hi all,

 

Can any one give me all the dimensions for a JK bonnet? I want to fit one to my TJ and yes before anyone says it can't be done I have a full fabrication shop that says other wise

Ian - I can in about 10 days if you can wait that long - I'm on holiday at the minute. I'm looking for a TJ bonnet - are you going to sell yours?

I guess your looking at the Mopar one?

 

AEV used to make a TJ hood!

 

What measure meanest do you need on the JK Bonnet? I'll take a look :glasses:

Hi Ian - I'm sure you know very well the shape of the 2 bonnets but thought you might like to see a pic of my TJ and JK side by side as it illustrates very well the large difference in  shape between the 2 bonnets.

Thanks Peter, yes there are major differences between the two but I'm well armed with the equipment to fabricate as I go, ultimately it could end up being made of fibre glass.

 

Nice duo by the way

Paul, the reason is two fold, firstly looks, the JK Mopar vented bonnet looks the mutts nuts secondly cooling as my plan is to fit the BMW E59 3.0 and with its twin turbos there's a lot of extra heat, and just adding vents to the TJ bonnet is just old hat and boring!

Just out of interest try having a look on carid.com its a yank site but deliver to UK, they have some different fibre glass hoods on there worth a look...  :diablo:
