Hero HoodSkulls® are our way of giving something back to the badasses who put their lives on the line to protect our families and freedoms. Select between 43mm and 58mm sizes. Free ‘4 Wheel Badass’ decal with your purchase! Our Hero line designs are wire channeled for your pre-wired, 12v 5mm, LED bulbs. Let’s all respect the first responders who protect our families and freedoms! 🙌🏼 A percentage of Hero sales go to support hero causes, from veteran suicide awareness to first responder interests. Thank you for being a good badass! This is a real opportunity for you to do something great for our veterans, first responders and extended Jeep family.
Veteran Suicide Awareness: WATCH this news segment for an interview of the parents who founded Jon's Mission. Additional educational resources: ✪ Jon's Mission for 22 ✪ Mission 22. An explanation of the "B" on the back of the Hero22 helmet is on our FAQ page.
Modifications of design, size or color should be placed in our custom shop.
The eye sockets on our Heroes are 'plugged' (see red portion in picture), but the 1.5mm thin, visible ‘plug’ can be easily drilled (5/32 bit) through it’s center, giving you access to concealed internal channels for your wires. They are LED-Ready when you are. This is a design element to give you time to work your way up to an LED installation, at your leisure. Click HERE to watch a how-to video on plug removal.
HoodSkulls® replace the hood bumps on a Jeep. They can also be bolted on bumpers, light bars, CB antenna mounts and existing cowl bolts. Order as many as you want. Production time is typically one week if we don’t have your order in stock.
BOLTING ON HOODSKULLS®:
- HoodSkulls® ship with stainless steel (silver) bolts, and each ships with rubber washers to protect the surrounding paint and seal gaps. Stainless steel washers and locknuts are included. The ultimate hood bump replacements!
- Removal of the boring, OEM Jeep hood bump is simple. The bolting of our HoodSkulls® is just as easy. Our design team listened to hard core Jeepers, so if you ever lower your windshield to fly like an old school pilot, your HoodSkulls® can rest in your glove box along with the removed windshield bolts. ☠️🔥👊🏻😎 Our latest versions of HoodSkulls® incorporate a revised, bolt-through installation process that is simultaneously compatible with the Jeep JK / TJ and JL.
- Please note that a 4mm (or 5mm depending on your order) hex key and 10mm deep socket will be required for installation on a non-JL, bumper or light bar. Only the hex key is required for installation on a JL or JK cowl.
- If you take your HoodSkulls® through a carwash with heavy mats beating on them, you may damage small details like horns or tiara. Please select a model that best matches your lifestyle, there’s one for everyone! Evaluate for yourself whether and where to install them on your Jeep, or decide to ultimately keep them on your desk.
SHIPPING AND HANDLING: Shipping is free on domestic orders, not international orders.
INTERNATIONAL ORDERS, CUSTOMS AND IMPORT TAXES: Customers are responsible for any customs and import taxes that may apply. We are not responsible for delays due to customs, but the wait will be worth it. HoodSkulls® will make your Jeep grin.
LED-READY: We don’t include the LED's or wires. We design, manufacture and deliver badass HoodSkulls® with bolting hardware, not lighting or electrical hardware. Adding LED's is a DIY mod project that requires semi-advanced skills. 'LED-Ready' does not mean 'plug-and-play'. If you need installation instructions beyond what we posted on our FAQ page, you should not get the LED-Ready version of HoodSkulls®. We don't provide tech support for LED bulbs or their installation. All HoodSkulls® can have LED's installed. However, select models are LED-Ready and have built in channels for your wiring, with a clean exit for those wires. Just add your wires and LED 'eyes' (pre-wired 12V, 5mm LED's recommended) then connect to relays under your hood and a switch in your cabin. No drilling is required with our LED-Ready HoodSkulls®. There are so many options with LED colors and switches, our DIY fans are having a party with all of the choices. Pre-wired LED bulbs are very inexpensive and easy to find online. Remember to seal gaps around your installed bulbs, and consult your DOT laws about vehicle lighting. Please note that before you install your bulbs, there will be holes in the eye sockets. Please visit our FAQ page and refer to the wiring pictorial links. The installation is generally simple, but diagnosing and repairing a short circuit in your Jeep can be expensive and complicated. Hire a mechanic or electrician.
JL v NON JL: The "JL" style has a round protrusion on the bottom of the HoodSkulls® that fits into the circular depression on the cowl area of a Jeep JL (new 2018+). If you install HoodSkulls® anywhere other than the cowl area of a Jeep JL, you do not need the JL fitment and will likely need the bottom of the HoodSkulls® to be flat, so you should order the "Non JL" style instead. Please visit our FAQ page and refer to the picture of an expanded JL fitment.
CONFUSED WHEN ORDERING? If you don't understand something, please ask. HoodSkulls® are hand made and take multiple hours to manufacture each. We especially want to help you avoid mistakes.
