I'm not arguing for or against, just saying that it's not a blinding failure of automotive design.

If you like how it looks - go for it!
I've had mine since Dec, so granted, a lot of my driving has not been when it's super sunny. Though in eastern WA state we've had a ton of sun the last couple months and I have literally not seen any glare on it as of yet. we'll see how it is the rest of the summer.

I have owned my 2016 MGM TEP for a year now (18K+ miles) and not once have I been blinded by glare off the scoop.

It's sunny in Texas a lot so we came up with these things called sunglasses. You guys who are having problems should try them out sometime.

I've seen the dreaded glare a few times, but not often enough to hate it. However, I do hate how much it limits your forward visibility when you're concerned about tire placement. IMO it should have been installed on the SR5, and not the Trail/TRD.

There are some desert trails where I absolutely could not see out the windshield due to glare off the hood. The scoop just gives us TE owners 2 opportunities to be blinded.
This is a mild example.

"these things called sunglasses"

Polarized sunglasses. I always wear them if the sun is out - probably why I've never seen the hood glare.

This is a big step up from the 1986 Subaru GL wagon I used on the Outer Banks beaches for 14 years. That thing would go anywhere in the sand on 185/70-13 tires. Dual range 5 speed, factory skid plate, 3 position manually adjustable rear shocks and armored exhaust. All factory, including the white spoke wheels. The front sub frame finally rusted apart.

Thanks so much!! I'm wondering if I could just have my shop cut the damn hole in my current hood, would split the difference in hood cost and save me on paint, though they'd probably want to re-paint again.

Has anyone tried making the hood scoop functional? To actually 'scoop' air?

You can't just cut the hood for the scoop insert. The hood w/ scoop has the scoop hump stamped in the metal. See the differences below

Scoop with hump:


No Scoop, flat:

Well I do have to admit, I experienced glare for the first time (driven this rig from dec-present). It was annoying, But only lasted a little bit while I headed in one direction. Once I turned it was fine.
