Wrangler hood latch on a KK?

Has anyone ever done this? Would like to see pics--thinking about doing this.

Thanks

Haven't heard of anyone doing it. Might be cool. This reminds me I need to do something about the shuddering hood at highway speeds that makes me worry a bit.

Have you checked the front hood "bumpers"... Not sure what they're called. They screw up and down under the front corners of the hood to adjust level and give resistance for the latch. If they're set right and the hinges are good you shouldn't shudder at speed.

I have not. I'll look into it tomorrow. The worst is at 70 and greater. I still would say it does it at speeds less than 60.
