    Cables and tensioner turn buckle

    Forgive my ignorance here, but what is the purpose of these cables that run from the hood latch to the windshield frame? What are they called?

    They are called limb risers. They push tree branches away from the hood and windshield.

    Not sure what they are called, they are keeping tree limbs off of your hood, looks like this setup would direct them right into toe snorkel though.

    Thanks guys. I’ve been seeing them a lot going thru pictures lately, but it was never the item they were displaying in the images. So there was no info on them. Nbunga, now that I know what it’s for, the image I posted seems it would do exactly what you said.

    Every time i see limb risers I’m like man those would be helpful and then tomorrow is another day and i forget all about them. Wheeling in the north east on tight trails if you follow the jeep in front of you too closely you might as well kiss your windshield goodbye I have seen it happen many times.

    In that particular picture, they push the tree into the snorkel to break it.

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.
