JEEPSWAG "WOODS" HOOD FLUTTER FIX KIT

I contacted Woods because i had seen in some post that he was going to make a hood flutter fix kit. I did not see it on his website so i asked him about it and asked for a price range. He said if i do i write up he would send me one. A few days later i got a small package and it was inside. This was a super easy install and could be done by anyone. The only issue i see is that this will not work for people with grill inserts.
material provided zib tie abd metal sleeve

Tested this out for the last week and a half. 95 mph on freeway into head wind no flutter. i even forgot to put the staps back on the hoos on the way to work one day and the hood didnt budge at all. one other thing you will have to reach in through the grill to open the hood but that can be figured out on your own. all in all this was a super easy fix and cakewalk install. thanks woods and look forward to dealing with you in the future.

so if I am looking at these pics right all it does is allow the latch of the hood cilp onto the metal crush sleeve? Tighter obviously?

He sent me one free with the tailgate strut I ordered last year. Awesome mod and still works today although the zip tie has loosened a little allowing the metal piece to move just enough to not catch the hood latch sometimes. Easy fix..

Go Play Outside.
