FAQ's about RK SPORT Hoods

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 some sanding and possible finishing 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. You vehicle 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 and Heat Extractor hoods that prevents any water that enters the scoop from making it to the intake. The water is ultimately directed to weep holes where the water exits the hood away from your vehicle'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 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 RK Sport HOOD WEIGH? We do not publish individual hood weights but in most cases fiberglass and carbon fiber hoods are 20-30% lighter than stock metal hoods.

ARE THE RKSPORT HOODS FUNCTIONAL? We define functional to mean that cool outside air is channeled through the hood, via a ram air scoop, and delivered directly over the factory intake box. all RKSport Ram Air Hoods are functional.

HOW DO THE HEAT EXTRACTION VENTS WORK? RKSport heat extraction vents allow a significant volume of otherwise trapped, hot air to rise through the extraction vents where it can be released from the engine compartment resulting in a cooler running, better performing engine.

5 Stars Ram air hood, Date: 6/14/2017

By: Aaron
Ownership: 1 month - 1 year
This is the second fibreglass hood on the car in the pictures the first would almost fold in half when you tried to close it. The RKsports hood is built to last. It takes a little work to fit and adjust. Make sure you have a good body shop fit and adjust your hood. I absolutely love how the hood changed the look of the car. Very well built.

Current Mods:
Cold air intake, mandrel bent air to air pipes, magna flow exhaust, and a little tune pushing about 24 lbs. boost. All running through a new Gen 3 ZZP performance 2.0

These are some of the items you can find at LMPerformance for your Jeep

Free some of the power in your Jeep engine. by allowing for a quicker, more efficient path for exhaust gases to escape and you can accomplish with the type of bend used to make an exhaust with "crush-bend" being more restrictive and mandrel bending being a freer agent. Don’t neglect considering what material is employed in the design avoiding mild steel which has deteriorates eventually. The better aftermarket systems are made using aluminized steel or stainless steel a much more longer lasting product that is worth the investment. Most aftermarket systems add to your car or truck's pizzazz since they come with larger tips and highly polished mufflers. The CORSA exhausts have an all of the above and a spectacular sound sound that was acoustically designed to match the make, model, and harmonics specific to your Jeep vehicle and the use of RSC™ technology means there is no drone in the system. Straight-through design reduces back pressure for increased horsepower and torque and Premium 304L stainless steel construction, and 3 levels of sound make it a system worth having.

Stainless Works is another industry-leader in stainless steel performance headers and exhaust systems and in addition to designing their wide range of after-market headers and exhausts, they manufacture them on-site, right here in the United States by skilled American craftsmen. Stainless Works product line of exhaust systems, headers, off road pipes and more are made from only the finest EVERLAST 304 stainless steel, which is a premium mil spec grade of stainless steel that is slightly more expensive than standard stainless steel materials and the Stainless Works products will never red-rust like the cheaper 400 series stainless steel used by others.

American Racing Headers, another eminent manufacturer of exhausts systems is available for your Jeep and they are engineered and constructed using 304 Stainless Steel, precisely cut, warp-resistant and with leak-free stainless steel flanges. They are manufactured to the perfect size so that they give you the most horsepower gain and are tune for the greatest achievable torque and HP and as the name suggests’ their products are made solely in the United States for top quality and a competitive price.

Kooks has been designing custom headers since 1962 and as a result have earned an outstanding reputation for quality and performance in headers and exhaust systems and we are proud to say their systems are handcrafted in the USA. Kooks Headers and Exhaust offers production applications for your Jeep Grand Cherokee in catted X-Pipe Exhaust systems, Long Tube Headers, Off-Road Connection Pipes, Green Catted Connection Pipes and Catted Connection Pipes with their inimitable handmade quality.

Borla is the one of the pacesetters in the manufacture and design of high performance exhaust, header and induction systems and as a consequence their products are sui generis in materials, warranty and design. Every system is austenitic stainless inside and out and resists corrosion and because it is less restrictive it allows the sound to stay behind the tailpipe. The sui generis inter-cooled tips add an aggressive look to your Jeep and installation is doable in two hours for a system install and six hours for a header install...

Flowmaster exhaust system for your Jeep Wrangler in the Force II with its mandrel-bent tubing creates outstanding exhaust gas flow resulting in greater acceleration, passing power and mileage and the sound is not as loud as the Thunder model still has plenty of great sound because it has a three chamber muffler. The American Thunder system for your Grand Cherokee has a two chamber muffler that gives your Jeep an aggressive sound this together with improved performance means you get a superior product with easy installation.

The Volant line of cold air kits can help you free up the power in your Jeep with their larger air filter boxes and intake ports allowing larger amounts of cool air in to increase your power.
