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!
Bought this set-up for wife's JK Rubicon. The shoulder screws that are included strip easily. I fouled one of them up so couldn't complete the install for both sides. Add to that the difficulty of latching these when out of the box and I knew my wife wouldn't like them. Tossed the parts and ordered a different latch type.

5.0So much better than factory latches
Easy to install. Absolutely ZERO flutter in the hood now. I would highly recommend these latches to anyone with a Wrangler!

5.0Daystar Hood Wranglers
This is the third set that I have bought for two different JKs. The most recent purchase was for the same reason as thr original 12yrs ago, to stop the hood flutter. They work great and I get a kick out of watching people try to open for the first time.

The instructions called for removing the lower hood catch from the Jeep, but I just use two (2) needle nose vice grips to remove the plastic pins and twisted them until they broke! It was 70 degrees outside during my installation, but they were still hard to close, but I like how they secure my 2007 Jeep Wrangler X now!

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.
