Toyota FJ vented aftermarket hood w/ integrated RIGID light: SPECTRE

edit: newest pic!

















hey guys, I know I've mentioned my little project of integrating the rigid 30" SR into the hood where the fake scoop used to be, but havent really posted any pictures of the scoop design i've been working on that will go with it.

For the RIGID 30" SR mounts, i worked with [email protected] sPod (who is amazingly helpful and an excellent CAD designer, i am so lucky) and OTRATTW to make a custom switch for inside my cab. Awesome, huh?

The design is baja inspired, which means it will vent a ton of air, and be very aggressive.. just how I like it. I know this design wont be for everyone, but for my first vented FJ design, i wanted to come with something loud. You cant see the cutout for the RIGID light yet, as the hood is masked off while we work on the vent design. Consequently, as someone asked on socalfj, If the light isw not mounted, I'd just have a 30" functional scoop. I imagine I could just put mesh on it and it would look real nice.

You'll notice the vents are not square, but are cut at the front... this is so that the vents follow the angle of the toyota design perfectly. a top down look would show you they follow the original OEM lines. =)






here's a newer pic:

Re: Toyota FJ vented aftermarket hood w/ integrated RIGID light: SPECTRE

To me the louvers look way too tall. I prefer the look of the Raptor louvers.




SAW Suspension, TC UCA's, Metal-Tech rear links, ARB front bumper, Expedition-One rear bumper with tire carrier, Metal-Tech sliders, 285-70-17 Duratracs, sPOD, PIAA 520 fogs, Rigid D2's, PIAA 510's rear.

Still to come, Baja Rack and install my 40" Rigid.

Re: Toyota FJ vented aftermarket hood w/ integrated RIGID light: SPECTRE

Those are some of my favorite vents too.. and look absolutely awesome on that truck. I actually looked at it... IMO just doesn't work with the FJ (notice they are on a corner our hood doesn't have which means creating a cowl), and would be very hard to make without doing injection molding as those arent integrated, but inserts.
