    First of all thanks to everyone who responded to my question. I am currently looking at the options and will order a set this week. Thanks again.

    Daystars are great. The instructions do warn that it needs to be at least 70 degrees to install. Not an issue now, but for a winter install can be an issue.

    This exact thing happened to me on the way through OK.

    I went with the aluminum Rugged Ridge latches, but also considered the Daystar. I was worried the Daystar would wear out over time as well though.

    I have never experienced hood flutter and figured aftermarket hood catches were just for aesthetics. But then I saw the posts above re failures of the stock catches and decided to blow my 20% eBay coupon on the Rugged Ridge ones. I saw a friends, and they look pretty solid.

    I have followed this thread as I have had major flutter issues, as most anyone has, when they pass simiís on two lane roads (especially simiís with irregular shaped trailers as they cause a good deal of air disturbance). My question, without re-reading the whole thread is this, has anyone ever personally experienced a true latch failure?

    When the rubber latch shown broke, I take it the other side held, as well as the under hood latch? Did this result in any damage to the hood?

About us
ďwayoflifeĒ is a moniker that Iíve 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.
