While driving to the Eastern Shore, MD The turbulence from a tractor trailer ruffled the hood so much, that it broke the factory footman loop. We were forced to seek an alternative and the Kentrol version is heavily coated with several grommets & washers to suit all jeep wranglers. This being said, Makes this Footman loop a far superior upgrade/replacement for any Jeep Wrangler.
Fit, hardware and function good. Not an exact OEM match but real close. No problems.
OEM stock hood footman loop broke on it's own without ever being used on 2005 Jeep Wrangler Unlimted. OEM part appeared to be just plastic with some molded-in brass/metal nuts. This one is much heavier and feels like solid metal. Original was black but this stainless steel looks nice and seems to be staying nice after three months so far.
It comes with nuts and washers. I drilled out the factory rivits and installed 10-24 rivit nuts in the pan so I could attach them better.
What is the distance in inches between the centers of the mounting screw holes?

Hi Icefisher The Footman Loop is 2 1/4 bolt to bolt. Thanks

Can you tell me the measurement from hole to hole. On my 1990 wrangler, the hole spacing is 5 inches.

How do I install this? How do you get behind the frame to install the nuts? Or do the bolts screw directly into the frame? 1994 Jeep Wrangler S

Hi Al There should be nuts on the inside of the frame for the Footman Loop to screw into. Thanks
