    Which hood latches

    So we need some new hood latches on the wife-mobile. I've seen good reviews on Drake, Rugged Ridge, and Daystar. I'm leaning towards Daystar just because they are an advertiser on the forum, but I trust the members here so what do you guys have to say. On our last road trip, hood shaked like a mofo across Kansas. I would like to order some in the next few days.

    Daystar is inexpensive, and they work great.

    Which hood latches

    I purchased the Rugged Ridge black aluminum hood latches after a lot of research. I haven't put them on yet so can't tell you anything more than they looked better than everything else (imo) and had the best reviews. Looking at them and inspecting the quality they look very good. Will install this year.

    The only thing I wish Daystar would do, is replace the entire latch.

    My wife ordered me the drake latches for Christmas, I wish I had done it sooner. I actually took them off the old jeep, to install on the new one, whenever I get a chance.

About us
“wayoflife” is a moniker that I’ve been using for 20 years now and I chose it because I think it does a great job of explaining, in simple terms, the passion I have for Jeeps and the Jeep way of life. This is a lifestyle that transcends age, gender and race as the only thing you need to be a part of it is a love for the outdoors, a desire to explore, a yearning to take on a challenge and a will to conquer it. Over the years, Cindy and I have attempted to capture the essence of this lifestyle through photographs and videos and share it with others around the world. And, this is how WAYALIFE was born.
