    Review & Installation Video

    Review & Install Video

    Hi, I'm Dave from extremeterrain.com, and this is my review and installation video of the Daystar Hood Hold Downs for 2007 and up JKs. I give this a one out of three wrenches on our installation rating guide. It's gonna take you less than an hour and you're just gonna need some simple hand tools to get the job done. We'll show you how to do that installation, coming up in just a minute. These hood hold downs are gonna be for anybody who needs to replace your hood latch, or because the hood flutter on your rig has become officially annoying, and doing things as simple as removing the spring from underneath your hood didn't help out. Now, these are gonna be the inside, so the rubber part of the latch. So that means that you're gonna be able to leave any after-market, or just the original latch in place. So, that's all you're replacing, is the rubber that gets worn out. And let's face it, whether it's an older Jeep that you may have, or if you live in an area that has a lot of elements like salt air, or if you have heavy winters where you live, you know that these can wear out a little bit sooner. They create a little more play, and that makes that hood flutter when you're driving down the highway. Plus, they turn that kind of ashy gray color, so depending on whether you wanna change it just for the look, or the practicality of making sure that your hood is nice and secure when you're driving down the highway and not fluttering up and down, this is gonna be a nice solution for that. These hood hold downs are made of polyurethane, and there are two included bolts. Those are gonna be made out of powder-coated steel, so that means it is going to fit any after-market latch that you may have put on your hood, or if you're still running with the original equipment, these are gonna work for those as well. At the beginning of the video, I indicated I'd give this a one out of three wrenches on the installation guide because it is pretty easy to pop on. Now, you are going to need some simple hand tools, and it should take you less than an hour, depending on the rust situation on a couple of your bolts. If they're fairly new, you're gonna be set and ready to go. Now, one of the things, before we even get started with the installation, that I wanna share a little bit of experience with you is I always like to work, especially with working with polyurethane or anything rubber, is to try and do it on a day that's 70 degrees or warmer, or if you got a garage or an area that you can work. Let these sit overnight and actually warm up. They'll be a little more pliable and easier to work with the first couple of times you're trying to latch your new hood latch onto your Wrangler. So, a little piece of advice from me to you. Now, to get started, it's very easy. Go up to your hood latch, and you're basically gonna look at the top bolt and the bottom bolt of the hold down. You're gonna take off the top bolt, then you're gonna unscrew the bottom bolt, it's that simple, and install your brand new hold down. Just do it in reverse of what I just mentioned, and you'll be set and ready to go. When you compare replacing the hood hold downs with an entire hood latch, you can certainly at least begin to see the value of just kind of switching those out, especially if they've turned gray from wear and tear over time, or if they've become a little bit loose and your hood is fluttering. That's gonna be a good reason to make the change and know that when you go down the highway, you don't have to deal with that hood bouncing up and down. And you get to upgrade the look just a little bit, and all you're doing is changing out the hold down without having to spend the extra cash for a latch. So, this is gonna be a good solution if you have worn out hood hold downs on your JK, and you want to update them to keep the hood from fluttering. And at the same time, if they've turned that ashy gray color because of where you live or how much wear and tear that you've actually put on your JK, this is a very simple upgrade to be able to change and to put in. And with it being just one out of three wrenches and simple hand tools, it should be fairly easy for just about anybody to install them themselves. I'm Dave, and that is my review and installation video for the Daystar Hood Hold Downs made for 2007 and up JKs, and you can check them out on extremeterrain.com.

    Eliminate Hood Flutter. Daystar Hood Hold Down Bodies are designed to secure your Wranglers hood to prevent noise, flutter or shake, regardless of the driving speed. These Hold Down Bodies are the perfect replacement for your Jeeps old, worn out factory rubber holds. So, if you're looking to make your latch tighter and more secure, you need to pick up a set of Daystar Hood Hold Down Bodies.

    High Quality Polyurethane. Manufactured in the USA, these Daystar Hood Hold Down Bodies are molded from a heavy-duty polyurethane material. Much stronger and more resilient than the stock OEM rubber versions, these polyurethane Hold Downs will provide a positive lock that keeps your hood securely shut on the street and on the trail.

    Straight Forward Installation. These Daystar Hood Hold Down Bodies are designed to be a direct fit replacement for the factory hold downs. Unlatch the hood, and then simply unbolt the stock hold downs from the upper and lower latches. Then reverse the process to install your new Daystar Hold Downs with the included hardware. To make things even easier it is recommended to install these Hold Down Bodies in 70 degree or warmer weather.

      Daystar hold downs

      This is my first time owning a Jeep. I had no idea what hood flutter was, until it happened. I was passing a semi at about 80 mph. I almost went off the highway, when I saw the hood shaking and bouncing. I called a friend when I got home. He owns a Jeep and explained the flutter issue. I went online to Extreme Terrain and purchased these Daystar hold downs. The hood is tight now, the way it should be. Thank you

      Better than OEM

      My OEM closure broke while driving. After ordering this, I dont have good flutter or movement at all. They work great! For even better performance, I removed the spring under the hood. I highly recommend this product.

      Hood hold downs work great!

      These work great! No more hood flutter or any other movement. I didn’t think they were going to work considering how difficult it was to latch them down after changing them out, but that was not the case at all.

      Definitely better than stock latch rubber, easy install, and pulls the hood down tight. Install during warmer to hot temperatures.

      Just bought and installed

      Just installed this on my Willy's Wheeler Jeep and besides the constant interruptions by my daughter and the smoke break, it too me about 20 minutes to install. Then the next day took it on the road and there was absolutely no hood flutter! Decent price and does exactly what I was told they would do. Love the product and would recommend it to anyone!

      Perfect

      Wranglers should have come from the factory with these. Stops all hood movement. Easy install, just use vice grips on the plastic pins and twist. Daystars look and feel great. I would recommend especially for the price.
