In addition to improved cooling performance, Poison Spyder Hood Louvers add great looks to your Jeep! In addition to improved cooling performance, Poison Spyder Hood Louvers add great looks to your Jeep! Many of the problems Jeeps and slow-moving rockcrawlers encounter on the trail are due to overheating. At slow speeds there simply isn't enough airflow through the engine compartment to keep things cool. Worse, engine compartments on most vehicles are poorly vented, with no way for hot air (which rises) to escape from the upper areas of the engine bay. Poison Spyder's Hood Louvers solve that problem by promoting proper airflow through and out of the engine compartment, while adding great looks to your Jeep.

IMPORTANT: This part number is for a hood louver designed to fit TJ hoods with two windshield washer squirters. These are typically '97-'02 model years, but we've seen some discrpencies in the model year application so please visually check your hood prior to ordering. TJ's with a single windshield washer squirter are typically '03-'06.

Cool That Engine!
The Poison Spyder Hood Louver helps keep your engine running cool by promoting airflow through the engine compartment. Many factors can contribute to high under-hood temperatures, which can translate to higher engine coolant temperatures and overheating. Headers, slow speeds, flex fans, and the cramped spaces of the engine compartment can all contribute to increased heat and reduced airflow. This Hood Louver kit frees up airflow through the engine compartment, allowing hot air to escape and cooler air to be drawn in through the radiator, improving cooling of both the engine coolant and under-hood air. Rock-crawlers and slow-moving vehicles are especially susceptible, as slower speeds naturally result in reduced airflow.
Great Looks
In addition to improved cooling performance, Poison Spyder Hood Louvers add great looks to your Jeep! The Poison Spyder Hood Louver looks great on any Jeep, whether it is painted to match the body color or powder coated a contrasting color. For convenience, it is available either bare or powder coated black. Adding to the great looks are the stainless steel button head cap screws used to fasten the louver to the hood.

Good Value For the Price
A Poison Spyder Hood Louver is one of the best bang-for-your-buck improvements you can do for your Jeep. Compare it to the cost of a complete replacement hood with vents, such as those from AEV, and its easy to see what a great value the Poison Spyder product is.

Quality Construction
Poison Spyder Hood Louvers are crafted from quality, thick gauge aluminum sheet. They are CNC laser-cut and precision die-stamped. Packaging Hood Louvers Aluminum makes the hood louver both light weight and corrosion resistant. But its thick enough to add some rigidity to the Jeep's notoriously thin sheet metal hood, helping to reduce "hood wobble" at speeds.

Easy Installation
Hood Louvers are fairly easy to install but do require some drilling and cutting of your hood. Stainless steel fasteners are supplied, as well as a full-size template with instructions for cutting the airflow holes in the hood. Because it is a one-piece design, specific for each model Jeep, installation is a quick and easy. Competitors' hood louver products may include multiple pieces that are painstaking to properly align and install, while others provide no cut template, leaving you to figure out how best to place the louver and cut the holes underneath.

Superior Packaging
We've put almost as much engineering into the packaging as we did for the louver itself! As a rather large, unwieldy piece, it is imperative that the Hood Louver be properly packaged to ensure against shipping damage. Our custom box and CAD designed foam blocking are your best insurance against the hassles of possible shipping damage.

When installing Poison Spyder DeFenders™ XC's, the Inner Fender Kit provides splash protection to the engine compartment as well as a place to mount under-hood accessories. This vented version also helps promote airflow through the engine bay, helping your Jeep run cooler. The Inner Fender Kit also provides for a complete, bolt-in DeFender installation for those who either do not have their stock inner fenders or would rather sell them than cut and re-use them. Each inner fender is a 3-piece bolt-together assembly, made of CNC laser cut aluminum sheet. Please note that no accessory mounting holes or brackets are provided, as each installation is left to the discretion of the installer to decide where to mount components. Most stock inner fender-mounted components can be re-mounted to the DeFender™ Inner Fenders by simply drilling a hole and/or fabricating a simple bracket. Unfortunately, we have not yet found an elegant solution for retaining the stock air box, so an aftermarket air intake or open air filter element (such as a K&N conical filter) is recommended.

There is also a non-vented DeFender™ XC Solid Inner Fender Kit available. If you already own the Solid Inner Fender Kit, you may convert to vented by purchasing only the DeFender XC Vented Inner Fender Panels rather than the complete kit. This product ships as bare aluminum— you may wish to have it painted or powder coated prior to final installation.

Poison Spyder TJ DeFenders with 3" Flares (Front, Rear & Crusher Corners) Poison Spyder LJ Rear Crusher Corners Standard w/ 3" Defender Flare
Solid, "Tubeless" Construction
DeFenders™ are fabricated entirely from CNC laser-cut, precision brake-formed 3/16" plate, either heavy duty P&O steel or lightweight 6061-T6 aluminum. Only one competitor manufactures a fender that's anything like the DeFender™>—fabricated entirely of plate with no tubing—but their design leaves a vertical edge of the metal pointed downward, right at the tire. The DeFender™ has an extra "return", or lip along the underside of the fender, which provides better protection from cutting into a fully stuffed tire, while also lending extra strength to the outer edge of the fender, where it is most likely to come in contact with rocks, canyon walls, trees, etc.

DeFenders™ vs. "tube fenders"
DeFenders™ are not "tube fenders"—they're better! Much of the Jeep armor industry was built upon Poison Spyder's original Tube Fender design, which has been borrowed, copied, and in some cases even improved upon, by many of our competitors. But now the state of the art in Jeep fender armor takes a giant leap forward with the DeFender™ product line. Rather than tube, the outer edges of the DeFender™ are brake-formed into a rugged 3-sided rub rail. Most "tube fenders" use a piece of .120" thick (just under 1/8") tubing as the outer edge rub rail, with 1/8" thick sheetmetal top plates. Compare that to the 3/16" (.188") thick material of the DeFender™ which is carried throughout its structure, from the outer rub rail surface to the top plates to the mounting structure. The DeFender™ is not only much stronger than a tube fender, it looks much better as well, with smooth flat surfaces that blend better with your Jeep's exterior appearance.

Increased Front Tire Clearance
Even on the non-highline version, the DeFender™ provides a much larger wheel opening than stock or some competitors' tube fenders. The back of the wheel opening, where larger tires tend to rub when the steering is at full-lock, is approximately 2˝" further back compared to typical tube fenders, and about 4" further back than the stock Jeep flares.

3" Flare
For those who need to maintain tire coverage, the DeFenders™ with 3" Flares provide approximately the same tire coverage as the stock TJ plastic flares. DeFenders™ are also available in Zero Flare (links: Steel | Aluminum) and Negative Flare (links: Steel | Aluminum) versions, and a wider, tire coverage width to be released at a future date.

DeFender Inner Fender KitOptional Inner Fender Kit
DeFenders™ are designed to be able to re-use the stock inner fenders, for those who would like to save some money and not hassle with re-locating all of the fender-mounted accessories. For those who would prefer to replace the entire fender/inner fender assembly, Poison Spyder now offers the DeFender™ Inner Fender Kit. This is a 3-piece (per side) bolt-together assembly, made of CNC laser cut aluminum sheet. Please note that no accessory mounting holes or brackets are provided, as each installation is left to the discretion of the installer to decide where to mount components. Most stock inner fender-mounted components can be re-mounted to the DeFender™ Inner Fenders by simply drilling a hole and/or fabricating a simple bracket.

Steel or Aluminum?
DeFenders™ are available in either heavy duty steel or light weight aluminum (both 3/16" thick). We recommend steel for those Jeeps whose fenders are frequently in contact with the rocks. For those needing a great looking, light weight fender that's strong but not necessarily as hard core as the steel ones, aluminum is a great alternative.

Easy Access & Side Plate Options
Access holes in the side of the DeFender™ make it easy to access the area between the wheel well and the firewall during installation. After installation, these holes are covered with a choice of different side cover plates. For the simplest install, choose the DeFender™ Side Inserts, which fill the access holes in the side panels of the DeFender™. DeFender™ Side Inserts are CNC laser cut from 1/8" aluminum plate. The Spyder logo cut-out acts as an air vent to promote airflow through the engine bay. The Side Inserts are designed to bolt to the inside surface of the DeFender™, using the supplied stainless steel button head hardware. For those who want more substantial armor protection, the DeFender™ Full Length Side Plates extend from the fender flare rearward to the door opening, and from the top of the Rocker Knockers™ up to the hood line. These Full Length Side Plates also provide extra bracing for the DeFender™ against frontal impacts, helping to prevent buckling of the weaker, stock tub sheetmetal just rearward of the armored fender. DeFender™ Full Length Side Plates are CNC laser cut from 3/16" 6061-T6 aluminum plate. Bolt holes are countersunk so that the supplied flat head stainless steel hardware lies flush with the plate's surface. The forward edge is cut to fit the enlarged wheel opening of Poison Spyder DeFenders™, while the lower edge is is cut to nest against Poison Spyder Rocker Knockers™ or Ricochet Rockers™ (NOTE: the angle of the forward edge of the Full Length Side Plates may not precisely align with the forward edge of older versions of Rocker Knockers™ and Ricochet Rockers™—newer, DeFender™-specific Rocker Knockers™ or Ricochet Rockers™ are designed to match the angle of this forward edge more closely). DeFender™ Side Inserts and DeFender™ Full Length Side Plates are sold separately (must be added to your cart as a separate item), so you may choose which one best matches your needs (select one or the other, but not both).

Accepts Hi Intensity LED Marker Lamps
Replacing your Jeep's factory fenders also removes the factory side marker light formerly mounted in the fender flare. DeFender™ are designed with provisions for mounting a smaller, more discreet but high intensity 3/4" LED Marker Lamp. These lamps are available separately through Poison Spyder Customs, and are DOT approved for automotive use. Note that these LED marker lamps may be wired to function as either a marker/running lamp or as a turn signal, but not as both.

TJ Battery Lift Bracket
All TJ/LJ versions of the DeFenders™ come with a custom bracket for lifting the stock battery tray higher, to provide the extra clearance necessary for the DeFender's™larger wheel opening. This bracket is CNC laser cut brake-formed and fixture-welded for an easy, clean installation.

Crusher Corners; provide hard core trail protection for the vulnerable rear corner section of your Jeep's body.
