JK Hood Latch Length

Hey guys I'm new here and I don't even own a Jeep (sorry!) but a truck I'm working on has Jeep hood latches.

I've looked around some and I now see that these stock Jeep rubber straps are prone to breaking, and the two on this truck just broke last week so I'm looking to install the Daystar straps.

My question is I don't know if I have TJ or JK straps. I understand the JK's are longer. Mine measure 2.25" from hole center to hole center, and I think they are the TJ version but I can't be sure.

Could someone help me out and measure their stock hood straps so I can figure out what I've got and get the right Daystars ordered?

Thank You!

When I said "truck" I meant "Train"

Still sitting on the toolbox, I just replaced mine with Daystars this morning. The OEM one I removed measures 3-1/8" CTC. Off a '12 JKU.
