Daystar Hood Latches (Black) - KJ09146BK


  • Daystar | Part Number: DAYKJ09146BK
  • Fitment:Direct Fit
  • Type:Non-Locking
  • Finish:Black


Stop the hood flutter! Daystars Hood Wranglers are a hood latch upgrade for the 1997 and Newer Jeep Wrangler TJ. 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.

5.0 Excellent investment!

Smart investment. The factory rubber hold downs break after they've been in the sun for a couple years.

5.0 Best idea ever!

Daystar's Hood Wranglers were recommended by a friend, and he got it right! It was unnerving to see the hood stretch the OEM hood latches at freeway speeds. Daystar's product absolutely stopped any movement of the hood when driving. Installation was simple and straight forward. If you drive your jeep at freeway speeds, I strongly recommend this product.

4.0 I would buy again

Takes a little more to latch, but the hood stays tighter.

4.0 Daystar Hood Latches Jeep TJ

Daystar replacement hood latches are easy to install and the threads come with loctite pre-applied. They stop the hood flutter but don't like to lay down when you unlatch the hood.

5.0 Daystar Rocks on TJs ans JKs!!!!!!!!!!!!

Product was Nice!!! Should be stock on all TJs and JKs. I would highly recommend, installation was a tad difficult but nothing two vice grips can't take care of. Much better than stock!!![@]

5.0 No more hood bounce! I love it!

This product delivers. Easy to install. We live in a windy area and hood bounce was always a distraction.
