Maybe, just going off how it was explained to me. The air will flow up the windshield creating a low pressure zone at the base of the cowl, making a cowl induction hood efficient. I may have the wrong information, it might work the other way. But hey I wasn't trained as an aeroengine tech nor do I have access to a wind tunnel, so I don't know for sure.

It's been a long time since I took that training. I can't explain it.

"It might work the other way" was exactly what I was asking.

Complete Project Rubicon Phase Two

Complete Project Rubicon Phase Two

Installed:
- JKS 1.25 body lift kit
- Brown Dog rubber motor mounts
- JKS adjustable front track bar
- JKS adjustable rear track bar
- JKS adjustable rear swaybar links
- JKS quicker disconnect links
- 8 JKS upper and lower control arms all four wheels
- Bumpstops front and rear
- Old Man Emu sprint coils all four wheels
- Old Man Emu shocks all four wheels
- Rugged Ridge wide and flat fender flares
- Barricade Rocker Guards with step
- 5 TrailMaster DM9 15x8 steel wheels
- 5 Pro Comp Xtreme MT2 33/12.50R15 tires

Issues: Had to cut seized bolts on both front lower control arms. Replaced with higher grade 8+ bolts. For the body lift had to get one half inch longer bolts due to rocker guard thickness. Added anti-seize to bolts all around and locktite where appropriate. Grease fittings all around.

Drove Jeep 70+ mph, no shakes, no shimmies, no problems. Installed OME hat on head.

Santa brought some new fabric doors. The drivers side needed quite a bit of adjustment to fit (still isn't 100%) but the passenger side only needed a little love.
