Jeep JK Wrangler Hoods - FAQ's
CAN I ORDER MY HOOD ALREADY PAINTED? RKSport does not offer paint services. We have found over the years that it is better to ship the hood 'paint ready'. This eliminates the possibility of paint damage during shipping and also allows you to pre-fit the hood prior to painting, which reduces the likelihood of scratching or marring the hood during final installation.
DO THE HOODS SHIP READY TO PAINT? The hood will arrive sealed in a premium quality, gray, gel coat. We recommend a light sanding prior to applying primer and paint.. Click HERE for detailed paint recommendations on all RKSport fiberglass hoods.
ARE THE HOODS DIFFICULT TO INSTALL? RKSport makes it easy! Disconnect the struts and wiper tubing. Unbolt the hood from the hinges and remove the hood from the vehicle. Remove all stock hardware from the stock hood and re-install onto the RKSport Hood. The Wrangler has multiple adjustment points to assure a perfect fit. We strongly recommend pre-fitting your new hood prior to painting. This will greatly reduce the chance of marring the hood once it is painted.
WILL WATER GET INTO THE ENGINE THROUGH THE RAM AIR SCOOP? RKSport has developed an effective water management system for all our Ram Air hoods to prevent any water that enters the scoop from making it to the intake. The water is ultimately directed to weep holes where the water to exits the hood away from the Wrangler's intake and engine.
DO THE CARBON FIBER HOODS NEED TO BE CLEAR COATED? Our carbon fiber hoods ship ready to install, no painting required. We finish them in a marine grade, clear gel coat for superior gloss, depth and UV protection. Some customers choose to add an automotive clear coat to our finish for additional depth and gloss but it is not necessary from a protection point of view. The Jeep Wrangler Carbon Fiber Hood is more expensive than the fiberglass version but since it does not need to be painted, the money you save on the paint job significantly minimizes the cost difference.
CAN I RE-INSTALL THE STOCK HOOD LINER ON THE NEW HOOD? It is possible but you would need to modify it to make it work. RKSport Hoods do not require a hood liner. The primary purpose of a hood liner is to protect the paint from engine heat. The double walled construction of our hoods, combined with the natural ability of fiberglass to dissipate heat, makes the hood liner unnecessary.
HOW MUCH DOES THE WRANGLER HOOD WEIGH? In most cases fiberglass and carbon fiber hoods are 20-30% lighter than stock metal hoods.
IS THE RKSPORT JEEP WRANGLER HOOD FULLY FUNCTIONAL? Fully functional means the outside air is channeled through the hood to a sealed connection with the intake box when the hood is closed. RKSport works closely with Volant and this hood has an optional adapter that will make it fully functional with the Volant Cold Air Intake System.
HOW DO THE HEAT EXTRACTION VENTS WORK? When your Wrangler is on the move, the extra wide, low profile ram air scoop collects and channels cool air into the engine bay directly over the factory air-box. This provides additional cooling for the engine as well as cool air for the intake. When you are stopped in traffic, or rock crawling at slow speeds, there is no forced air entering the channel but the heat extraction vents , along with center scoop, allow a significant volume of otherwise trapped air to be released from the engine compartment resulting in a cooler running, better performing engine.
