JK Hood lock. I'll rivet it for free in MoCo

I was looking into getting the engine area secure on a 2013 Wrangler.
I went ahead and bought the Mopar hood lock from the dealer. They matched the price of an online parts competitor. However they were going to charge me $220 to mount it to the Jeep.
After a little research I found out that the key self codes to the ignition key, and that to mount it to the hood it takes only four 1/4" rivets (included).

My next project was to get a riveter (harbor freight) and 5 minutes later my hood lock was installed.

I believe I paid $129 for the Mopar lock and $17 for the riveter. The Mopar part number for the hood lock is 82213051AB. I installed it on a 2013 Jeep Wrangler Moab 2 door and it rivets to existing holes on the cross member.

My next project is the locking gas tank cap. I want to also buy the Mopar part that keys to the ignition key. If anybody knows a way to locksmith it please let me know. Mopar part number is 68030940AA. The dealer wants $90 for the cap and tumbler parts and $50 to key it.

Again if anybody can help me key the lock cylinder to my ignition key please tell.

In the mean time if anybody wants use my riveter to rivet a hood lock, let me know. I'm in northern Montgomery county around Gaithersburg, Germantown, Frederick. It takes me 5 minutes to put on four rivets and will save you $220 in dealer charges. And this way you don't have to waste money on a riveter that you'll probably have no use for.

If you are looking to have a hood lock and also want to install grille inserts I found that the Drake off road billet inserts work the best. I have the rugged ridge billet and plastic inserts and was going to see which fits best. The Drake ones were the best because I could cut them to fit the hood lock, and still maintain good integrity. The rugged ridge would have been useless after the cut. Check out the picture...



Cheers,

CJ

One more question. Anyone tried the ebay hood lock? I know I mentioned it twice but its like 50 vs 130 for prices....Here is the one I am referring to.Tuffy Security Products 292 01 Hood Lock 07 13 Wrangler JK | eBay

clearly you'd have an extra key....but leaving it in the car wouldnt be so bad.

I did go with the mopar hood lock and the mopar gas cap lock. The hood lock self codes to the ignition key. The gas lock comes with a new string and a lock cylinder with no blades. The dealer or a good locksmith can insert 5 blades into the cylinder to code it to the ignition key.
I got it off of ebay for $51. I'd say stay away from the crown ones. They are made in china.

I just installed Tuffy lock today. It was easy. One need to be careful on the self tapping screws. I had to cut the grille insert I installed a couple of weeks ago to gain access to the lock. The fit was firm. The hood had no movement with just the lock.
