    Does anyone know if the hood scoop on the 2017 T4R is functional or only for looks? Thinking of putting a small light bar in that space if it does not actually serve a purpose outside of cosmetically. TIA

    It's not functional as an air intake, but I like how it effectively minimizes/eliminates hood vibration.

    I agree with topdec. The hood on our '15 Wrangler vibrated badly at highway speeds even though we had paid extra to have Jeep put in a hood lock. The 4R is quiet as a mouse, although some breathing holes might have been useful there. - Ted
