Rugged Ridge Hood Vent Insert Review

It’s been a hot summer in my state, and when I’m driving down the highway it can get pretty stuffy inside our truck. My husband is always complaining about how he feels like he’s going to pass out from all of the heat coming through his hood vent. We finally broke down and got new ones for him, but we still had some leftover money left over so I decided to buy one for myself too. After seeing that many people on Amazon were buying this product because of their own experiences with it (and other reviews), I knew this was something we would have gotten if only we’d bought them sooner!

Reviews & Ratings of Rugged Ridge Hood Vent Insert

Our Rating: 3.9 Out of 5 Stars

The Rugged Ridge Hood Vent Insert is the perfect addition to your Wrangler JK, Jeep JL or Unlimited. It does not install like a traditional hood vent and it will keep your engine cool in even the most extreme environments that you might encounter on some of our off-road adventures.
I found 23 customer reviews at the time of writing and they had awarded the Rugged Ridge Hood Vent Insert 3.9 stars out of a possible 5 on average.
The customer reviews are pretty positive overall but one said, “It’s just too thick for my truck with its factory hood vents … makes putting anything inside impossible without removing everything else first!” Another reviewer said, “If you have a 4×4 truck this product works well … doesn’t interfere with normal operation when driving normally however if you drive aggressively then I would recommend getting something less rigid as it’s really difficult to get into position over top of other components such as air intake etc.”
However no one else seems to be having any significant problems so perhaps it isn’t an issue for everyone either


These hood vents are designed to fit into the existing fittings of your vehicle’s front-mounted engine air intake system. They provide a convenient and powerful way for you to bring in fresh, cool outside air while protecting against heat buildup inside the cabin. In particular, they’re good for those who live or work near active areas like bodies of water or fields where there is a lot of dust, pollen etc., which can be harmful if inhaled too deeply._
