A reliable hood latch assembly keeps your catch engaged so your hood stays down when you’re wheeling on the highway or in windy conditions on the trail. These safety components feature construction of full aluminum or stainless steel and can lock or not. Crown Automotive, Rugged Ridge, Drake Off Road and Kentrol offer these replacements for OEM latch assemblies at more affordable prices. They come solo, in pairs and in kits and require simple hand tools to install. Ensure your hood is secure so you don’t have to worry about unwanted surprises.
