Get added style and strength for Jeep JK's with the Drake Off Road RocKlaw Hood Catch System. The rigid die-cast construction of this system virtually eliminates the inchhood flutter inch JK's are known for and will never stretch or deteriorate like the factory units. Many aftermarket hood latches claim to be rugged but are clunky and unfinished in appearance. These feature the innovative RocKlaw height adjustable system which allows for precise and secure setting of the hood position. They also have a customizable inchstyle window inch for installation of optional aluminum inserts for a more hardcore look. The complete latch mechanism is finished a UV resistant semi-gloss black power coating for maximum durability.
Installation was pretty straight forward. The bottom bolts are tough go get to but it installs in all factory holes no modification needed. Only reason I fifnt give 5th star is the factory latches have rubber bump stops built in so when changing to these latches there is no bump stop by the latches. I just got some self adhesive rubber stops to remedy this. These latches look close to factory but better finish that won't fade and no bungie straps to fail.
I've been looking at other latches but as soon as I saw these, there was no hesitation. I installed them the day I got them. Although it did not come with instructions, it was simple and easy to figure out on my own. Probably the beefiest and best quality out there for less than $100. Awesome product
