        • This Rugged Ridge Hood Lock will only fit early production 1997 TJ's and will not fit later models.

        Hi, I do not understand very well how it installs. The instructions talk about a hole where to put the screws, but my wrangler does not have those screws or hole in the top where the closure goes, only a hole through which the closure passes. Would you have a photo of the installation? Thanks

        • Unfortunately I we do not have any photos regarding the Rugged Ridge Hood Lock and I am very sorry to hear you are having issues with installing this item. I do want to note that the hood lock will only fit early 1997 Wranglers and if your Wrangler was produced later that year or is not a 1997 Wrangler this will not fit properly.

        • Hello, unfortunately this will only work on early 97 models.

            1997 only?

            Why does this only work on 1997 TJ wranglers? Isn’t 97-06 all TJ models?

            Easy installation

            The hood locks was an easy installation. Bolts we're a little on the weak side. Had to modify, but overall not bad.
