Need help asap. i need a measurement of a cj hood

Hey all,

Can anybody tell me how wide the center part of a cj hood is? I am talking about the the area between the bends in the hood. Thanks.

Hope this helps. The hood is tapered so I'm not exactly sure which width you wanted.

Width at the back (firewall) 59"
Width at the front (grill) 39"
And it's 39 1/2" from front to back

You're talking about the center, raised portion of the hood right? So no, those measurements Ddawg aren't what you're looking for. Think about how wide 59" is. His measurements are the complete hood width.

You need to be more exact. There are about 20 different ways you can measure the hood. Do you mean center as from front to back? And the width will also vary as you go from the bottom portion of the hood, up...i.e., the hood is wider where it meets the fenders, but gets more narrow as the sides curve in.

What I gave you was outside dimensions...inside will be about 1" less.

Re: Need help asap. i need a measurement of a cj hood

I've got a chevy 305, edelbrock intake, with a q-jet. With the adapter I can't run the air cleaner that I want to use. The air cleaner hits the hood. i need another 1inch of clearance. I am considering on mounting a small hood scoop on the hood to give me the extra clearance I need to use the air cleaner (full size air cleaner). I was looking on ebay at hood scoops but i don't know if they will fit cause i don't know the measurements of the center portion.

Now I gotcha.....
Just past the fan, the center raised portion is about 12" wide...but the sides widen out and taper off to nothing and blend in with the hood by the time it gets back to about where I would expect the air cleaner to be. I would say that just about any air scoop would work. By the time the center portion gets to where the air cleaner would start, it is at least 18" wide.

Is this what you needed?
