Replace your boring rubber hood hold downs with these race inspired Drake Off Road hood hold downs, featuring a billet aluminum turnbuckle and stainless steel heim joints. Our quick release push pin gives you easy access to opening your hood and will not be lost thanks to our attached stainless steel lanyard.
Ok these things are pretty darn cool. They are a bit costly but well worth it. Once installed...absolutely no hood flutter. Still easy to open hood and they look awesome. When mounting lower mount I did find it easier to pull off the front part of the inner fender so I could get a wrench on the nut. I would have given them 5STARS but I think they are a little proud on their price. But I am happy with them. Also noticed a jump in mpg.

Absolutely awesome product!
Very easy install. Improved the look of my jk when I thought it wasn't possible. When you receive the package it says it's for 07-09 so I was freaking out but don't worry they fit my 2010. Again, amazing product thank you.

Worth the money
Time will only tell if they hold up seems like I might have a problem with them sticking but we will see. Over all look good and hold the hood down so no flutter.
Pain in the butt to install the bottom portion of the latches but can be done with one person and nimble fingers. OR you can take your entire headlight assembly out
I would recommended this if you want a different hood tie down and something that looks good too

The hold downs are a little difficult to install. I had a little trouble with the nylock nuts. Once completed they really improve the looks of the hood and they help with hood flutter.

I like them, BUT...
The main bolt that holds the turnbuckel broke when I tried to take it appart to install the bottom section to the jeep. I found another bolt in my collection that works, but it does not look as good as the original one. I'm sure the manufacturer would have replaced it, but I already had the old hold downs removed, and it would have taken a week or two to get a replacement. They work great and I love the way the look--with the exception of the replacemnet bolt.
