    Interested in some different hood hold downs. Checking out these NEW Drake Billet Locking Hood Hold Downs. Any good? Any others out there?

    Rugged Ridge aluminum hood catch kit installed easily and looks bulkier than Drake but its a Jeep, right. Available in different finishes and holds the hood down securely. Wish the locking Rampage hood catch was simpler to install but reviews state it needs "custom" fitment adjustments to make it right.

    I'm running the Rugged Ridge one, and am very happy with them. They lock, and are lower profile than the OEM ones.

    I put the Drake locking hold downs. Very happy with them. I replaced the silver turnbuckles with Black ones. Morris 4x4 center had the lowest price of anyone.
