The factory hood latches on the Jeep Wrangler JK allow an alarming amount of hood movement even at moderate speeds. Daystar Hood Wranglers upgrade the soft rubber on the factory latches with a heavy-duty polyurethane material that holds the hood securely in place. Installation is simple and maintains the factory look. No more shakes, no more flutter, and better peace of mind!
Installed on my 2014 Wrangler Sport after one of the factory hood latches failed on the highway. The Daystar part is a definite improvement over the factory rubber latches and I now have no hood flutter on the highway,even in high winds and passing semis.

Would buy again
Very easy install and keeps the hood from fluttering. the only down fall is they make it hard to latch the hood.

Stock hood latch baffled when I met trucks on the highway. With these latches the hood doesn't even move at all.

Solved a Problem
The Hood on my JKU would Jump a full inch and it drove me nuts. The install was easy, cut the old ones with a razor knife snip the pins with a set of dikes and use the supplied bolts to reinstall the new rubbers. It took about 10 minutes and I didn't even open the hood. Now even at 85 mph the hood doesn't move. Why doesn't Jeep use these as stock?

keeps hood down excellent design love it.

Great product great service
Works as designed and described. Made of better material then stock rubber latch. Holds hood down very tightly and removes the hood flutter completely. I use my jk as a daily driver and therefore see a lot of highway miles and hood flutter was very bothersome.
