2008 Hood Latch

I just got a 2008 sahara. Shouldnt there be a hood latch or are those 2 hold downs all that are used? My 88 has both

yeah it should be right over the Jeep emblem when you open the hood.

So, you're saying, that when you release the two side latch's and lift the hood--there's no safety latch-INSIDE the front of the hood ??

well that aint good... Call your dealer and have them give you a bullshit excuse of how it not having the latch is your fault... Or maybe they'll give you a new one. One never knows how the dealership will react until you have a problem with them.
