When driving Jeep Wrangler on the road you can easily notice a fluttering hood, especially when passing a truck coming from the opposite direction. It is quite annoying in the long run. Hood latch upgrade solves this problem. Installation is extremely simple. Remove the old rubber latch by breaking plastic caps using pincers. Mount a new one using bolts supplied in a kit. A new latch is stiffer and shorter. The hood is stable and does not flutter any more.
