Was wondering if it's possible to swap hoods? I have heard mixed messages on this...especially when it comes to the Mojave hood. I just had a bad hail storm and would be interested in upgrading the Overland hood to either a Rubicon or Mojave hood. Can you clear the air?

Hi Grant,

There are no dimensional changes. The fenders are the same and so are the grilles so yes it can be swapped. Let me know if you need any part info or pricing.

Thanks,

I put a Rubicon hood on my Sport S with no issues.

Mojave hood is not a swap, it is on a couple other threads, but you need Mojave side cowlings and also front cowling along vent. Mojave and Rubicon hoods both have nonfunctional hood scoops but can easily be modified to be functional.

You can see in this comparison. The area in front of the windshield hinge on the Mojave is flat going forward. On the Sport/Overland/Rubi it starts a bit lower and slopes downward going forward. Then on the side cowl piece in front of the a-pillar, again it is almost flat coming forward from the base of the windshield on the Mojave. On the Sport/Overland/Rubi it starts from a much lower point. These pieces would have to be swapped as well as the hood for the Mojave. (I believe this is the hood and setup they will use for the V8)

This is good info and certainly something I did not originally catch. While there are a few more parts required it still looks very feasible to do.

Here is a running list of the parts needed thus far:

Hood 68338381AC
Bezel 68398765AB
L/Seal 68405001AB
R/Seal 68405000AB
Hood Liner 68346961AA
Push Pins x12 6504135
F/Seal 68295588AB
Side Seals x2 68272214AA
Cowl Panel 6NT06TZZAA
Left Cowl 6NT09TZZAA
Right Cowl 6NT08TZZAA
Lower cowl 68291874AC

This would be why the insurance company denied the claim for the new hood :(
