Article in the Nov/Dec. issue of 4WD Toyota Owner magazine showing a set of our Size Large Hood Louvers being installed on an FJ Cruiser
A. We have found that this is not necessary because: 1) large objects cannot fall through the louvered openings, and the flow of air and heat is out, not in, and 2) anything in the way of the heatflow/airflow provides resistance and slows it down.
