Daystar Hood Wranglers: Warranty

I had a Daystar Hood Wrangler break - the top loop split open & the latch came out. I emailed Daystar Saturday. Sunday night I got an email saying they'd take care of it. Today a new set arrived, and not one but two Daystar shirts!

Thanks Daystar!

They are fantastic! I only had this problem once before I went out and picked up a set. A little harder to shut the latches now but worth not having your hood doing a crazy dance with a strong head wind.

I hear great things about them always! And I work in customer service myself, for ford, and when I hear good things about customer service I tend to buy the product!

If you don't believe they will work, run a zip tie around the stock hood strap and re-connect them. It'll prove to you that ANYTHING is better than stock and the Daystar product is worth every penny they want for them.

Zip ties? I'd like to see pics... I can't wrap my head around that.

Funny. The T-Shirts probably cost more than the Hood Wranglers.
Great product!

zip ties here as well, chuck...but i just can't break down to spend money on the daystars knowing that i've never heard of a latch failing and the hood flying open. although, watching the flutter is certainly a little unnerving!! lol

mine split open just like Jeep2.0. Hadn't been on there very long. I think heat is their enemy as we were at the colorado river. And on another note, having a manual tranny and their switch panel don't mix.

I'm not sure why the hood flutter bothers everybody...

I drove to Texas and back ( 3,000 miles ) and the hood fluttered the whole way.
Heading south from Houston to Corpus Christi there was a 30 mph headwind and I struggled to maintain 65mph and the hood went crazy, but the latches never failed. i kept thinking if the hood flew up that would give me a good excuse to justify the AEV hood, but it never happened.
