    Specs. The Hood Lock made by Rugged Ridge is a thrifty method of locking down your hood against those who would vandalize your engine or steal batteries and components from it. This rugged stainless steel Hood Lock fits out of sight in your Jeep's grille, attaching easily with bolt-on mounting. Working with the pull-forward hood assembly, this lock comes with two keys. Without these keys, access to your engine will be denied to all except the most determined thieves.

    Construction. Rugged Ridge's Hood Lock is fabricated out of stainless steel and has a bright silver finish. The lock works with the pull-forward hood assembly. It fits inside the grille for concealment and low-profile aesthetics. Two keys are included with each lock. Hardware is supplied along with this component, and installation is bolt-on and drill-free. The lock is protected by a standard 5 year warranty against various defects, provided by the manufacturer.

    Application. Fits 1998-2006 Wrangler TJ models.

            Great hood lock!

            The lock was easy to install and adjust. I have had no issues with it so far!

            Cheap price

            Cheap price and quality to match , very flimsy and poorly constructed. But I guess you get what you paid for.

            It seems to work as advertised and I am satisfied with it.

            Ya get what ya pay for....

            Pretty plating, substantial metal girth, but incomplete instructions ....still haven't successfully installed. I can't recall reading anywhere that this device floats freely, not being firmly attached but just clamping on the safety hood latch. Will probably be a rattle generator. Still haven't figured out how to mount it so that the keyhole is acceccible without cutting a port in the bodywork.

            Hood Security

            The device serves it's intended purpose to secure the hood. However it is inconvenient having to remove the lock and reinstall when done.

            It works well but it's just not practical. You have to take it out every time you open the hood. It's probably worth it just to buy one that stays on permenanlty.

            Simple, but worth it!

            I have friends who are also jeep owners that have ordered this product and they love it. It works well, and it looks well. I have yet to apply it to my vehicle because I have no clue what to do, but I can't wait to jazz up my 98 TJ classic!
