Daystar Hood Latch

Stop the hood flutter! Daystars Hood Wranglers are a hood latch upgrade for the 2007 and Newer Jeep Wrangler JK. The stock hood latches utilize a weak and stretch-prone rubber that allows the hood to shake and flutter at speed. The result is often unsettling, especially when passing an 18-wheeler going the other direction! A suspension lift only aggravates the problem by allowing more air to push up on the underside of the hood. The Hood Wranglers are a direct replacement for the factory rubber used in the hood latch. Constructed of a heavy-duty polyurethane material, Hood Wranglers provide a more positive lock that keeps the hood securely shut regardless of vehicle speed. They utilize most of the factory hood latch components, so the upgrade looks factory once complete. Hood Wranglers are an inexpensive fix to an annoying problem!
