Or… you may be one of the many Jeepers who, as a kid never learned to play nice with your toys, and have flopped or rolled your Jeep. If you’ve never done it, don’t! Things never seem to fit quite right anymore – including the hood.
Whatever the case, Drake Off Road has solved both “flappy hood syndrome” and “I didn’t play so nice and my hood doesn’t fit anymore.” Yours-truly suffers from the latter. Their solution? The Drake Off Road, stainless steel and aluminum component hood hold down.
Besides looking really custom, these race inspired hold downs solidly keep the hood in place preventing flappy hood syndrome. Additionally, for those of us with altered hood alignment (flop/roll damage) issues, the ball joints on the end allow for adjustability front-back or left-right.
