    2016 JK Hood Wobble

    latches.jpglatches2.jpglatches3.jpgMy 2016 JK with power dome hood has been driving me crazy with hood wobble. I purchased 2 JL latches and replaced and 100% rectified the problem.
    I only drilled out the 3 lower holes in the fenders with same size drill bit but forced drill downwards.
    Hood alignment is perfect and better than stock. I of course touched up new holes to prevent rust.
    The JL latches were $65.00 on E-Bay.

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.
