hood latches

For those who have changes fenders, what did you use for replacement hood latches if not reusing stock? I like the tj style aftermarket latches for the yj but they are all at least part stainless. Pics would be great if you have them. Thanks

I used the stainless set for mine. I like the SS better then a set of rubber latches holding my hood. It's just a little more secure if you know what I mean.

I used the factory ones on my tube fenders

If it has tracks, tires or tits, its gonna cause a problem.
