Awww, hood flutter again. I've never heard of anyone's hood being blown off. If you are worried about the hood flutter, there are some easy fixes. Remove the hood spring or replace the latches with something better.
never heard of off...have heard seen pics where it has blown back/ up and dented itself on windshield frame.....2 different instances a couple years back.....I replaced my latches on my TJ at that time they were about 6 years old....heard the spring thing helps also.....
The soft top makes me way more nervous than the hood. All that creaking, squeaking, rattling, flopping, rear sides bowed in by the airflow... I'm just waiting for it to fly off like a parachute.

My favorite quote from the press release.. sad but true: "Chrysler claims its products, especially the Jeeps, can handle all sorts of terrible conditions, churning through muddy swamps, climbing mountains, and crossing rivers. Turns out they cannot even handle a car wash."
The first time you experience hood flutter, the driver's seat might turn brown. Buy the hood wranglers mentioned above. They're on for 2 years now, and a bonus- you get a serious bicep workout latching your hood.
Remove the spring and stick some tie straps around your factory straps. Just snug enough that you can still use them, but still won't let them stretch when a big truck or big gust happens.. Cost... 10 cents.
