Hood wobble/rattle

Hey Guys,
SO every time I drive down a single lane road at normal speeds (90-100 kph) and a truck of SUV comes the other way my hood wobbles and I think it is going to come unlocked. Is this normal? Is there anything i can do to stop it?

Thanks for the help,

Yes it's normal, no it won't open up, yes it can be fixed. The easiest and cheapest way is to remove the hood spring. The best way, IMO is you buy the Daystar hood wranglers. Daystar KJ09145BK - Daystar Hood Wranglers for 07-12 Jeep® Wrangler & Wrangler Unlimited JK - Quadratec

I like it because when it starts to bounce all around thats the signal for me to slow down....
never heard of one unlatching, although many have been apprehensive about it, plus you have the safety latch under the hood. No worries mate.
