My NEW hood hinges are JUNK

My 24 year old hinges seemed to have a lot of slop, so I ordered a new set from 4 wheeldrive,part 7402bl.

The new ones have more slop than the old ones plus they are covered with welding slag......They are Omix-ADA from china..

Now I like 4 wheeldrive hardware and glad they are here to serve us, but really, some of their product sucks!!!!! The brand mentioned above are ussually POS

1979 CJ7 (YJ tub) full cage, Currie 9inch rear with Warn full float kit, detroit locker, 456 gears both ends, Lockrite in front, T 18 trans, 360, 040 over, Isky cam, 2 into 1 Flowmaster exhaust

I'm not as good as I once was....but I'm good once as I ever was.

Yeh, that brand is crap. I have always had good luck with Kentrol. That other brand is cheaper than Kentrol, and that is why.
