Nice. If I ever get around to doing a DIY Highline to one of my TJs I will most likely be using these hood pins.

Nice job! I need to do this. Rocko-n-miss has a nice write up wher he covered up the old latch location with body work. I like the light idea though if u could find one that didn't look goofy sticking out of the side of the hood. Thanks for sharing.

I've been looking at motorcycle lights, and they seem to have an assortment of low profile lights that I think would look pretty hip right there. It's just I'd want to see them in person first and do a rough mock up before committing to them.

I have hood pins hanging around waiting for me to get the nerve to drill the hood, and I had planned on putting pairs of LED side marker/turn signal lights in those spots.

Clay... Grab 4 of these - $2.95 each for the 10mm Bolt LEDs in Amber. Hook them into your turn signals.

Thank you very much!

And I just realized that Rokmen makes hood pins specifically for TJ's.....for $70! It looks like it's a bit longer, and it's a pointy pin. But really?

i got the exact same kit to do my hoodpins on my jeep after i put my rokmen hihglines on.

will say i was a little disappointed that they did not use all stainless hardware as well. but if these things ever start to look awful, tractor supply sells the center pin, and cross pin in grade 8

no doors, no top, no problems

Great write up!

I have been using these since the 80's, I think I have had 7 sets. They were developed out of necessity for off-road racing and work great.

Used the same ones.

after having these hoodpins on my jeep for a longer amount of time. i will say that the nuts have started to have a little bit of surface rust. that is the only disapointment i've had with them. i would highly suggest to paint them before you install the pins on your jeep

no doors, no top, no problems

Sean,

Looks like yours are mounted further from center line. Could you post a straight on pic so we could see the difference?
