    I really like the hood latches. A bit pricey. But I have them also. It is a nice lil touch.

    I like them too. Thought it looked quite big when removing from package but looks great!

    Is there a way to adjust the tightness that you are aware? One side is really tight and I can just barely unhook it.

    Hard to tell which brand (drake?) from the pic but the Rugged Ridge version is adjustable. Those hood catches should be tight enough to minimize hood flutter but not too tight making hood catch release difficult.

    Will try to see if I can figure out how to adjust it a bit.

    Update: Forgot to comeback and post that I didn't actually need to adjust them. After a couple weeks they became a little looser on their own and are perfect now.
