Hood latches

Since I laid over my jeep back in 06, I've had issues with my hood latches, especially the passenger side. I have a new hood that I'll be putting on, and after test fitting, I see that it sits proper again. BUT, I have a broken hood latch I need to replace.

Anybody got a spare one around here they're not needing? If not, is eBay my best source for these?

Or to ensure I don't have the problem again, should I just get those lockable kind that don't use the rubber? Or would hood pins be the best way to go? I'm just not trusting those OEM latches any more.

I did have one good one somewere.The other I broke but if I can find the one I will let ya know.It is the stock black plastic type.I replaced them with the stainless latches.
I like for it to shine even thought it is muddy most of the time!

Kelly, That'd be sweet. I won't have my new hood painted by then, so there's absolutely no hurry. If those locking ones work well for you, I may just go that route for a more secure method anyway. With compressors, gel batteries, and other stuff in there, the security isn't such a bad thing.

slf, if you find it let me know.
