Mopar hood lock is pretty stout compared to the cheaper ones out there. Easy to install and also eliminates hood flutter. Need a 1/4' rivet gun. A little pricey but you get what you pay for.

X3.
It is the best device I have seen.
This is an actual lock, whereas most of the others are two T shaped pieces of metal.

I think I paid like 115$ on sale, part 82210464AB:

Thanks for the fix.
I did not remember if we could do non-vendor links

This is info I needed and found on search. I was leaning toward the Mopar unit anyway. I already got my wheel locks now I'll do the hood. They sure leave a lot of things "unlocked" on these new Jeeps. This thread is a year old so I'll bump it for any new info or advice.
