Rampage Hood Lock Installation

First of all, I know that a couple of people have already started a thread for these hood locks. But, I figured that I would add my .02.

So, as most of you have read, these hood locks torque your hood down so much that the tip of the hood and the fender will meet. This causes your paint to chip. Not fun!!!

This is a cheap and efficient way on how I fixed the problem.

1: Go to home depot and buy one of these for $1.98

2: Then take the hook out of the end and cut off the end. Measure out two 1inch strips and cut them off.

3: Use double sided tape in order to secure the pieces to the POS rubber bumper supplied by Rampage. And waallla, it should look like this:

Hope this was able to help someone for their installation.

Thanks and be safe.

I have the same feelings. You can tell that they probably created and installed it on 1 vehicle and didn't leave any room for adjustments. You know, because every jeep is exactly the same, lol. But, after fiddling around and fixing their stupid mistake, i really like the product.

I used thick inner tube to do the same thing.
