I live in an area where cars are always getting tossed.I bought this and the ignition-keyed gas cap. More spendy, but never can I forget or lose my hood or gas key.Go to the locksmith, it cost me like 20 bucks to have both done. It was so easy to install, I can't imagine what the dealer would charge for this. Can confirm the Astro 1423 rivet gun worked well for this install right out of the box.
ProsEliminates hood flutter from semis, and keeps your battery safe from meth-heads.

A necessity - especially in urban areas. Piece of mind is priceless.
ProsIs exactly as pictured. Provides needed security.
ConsHaving the dealership key this is pricey (especially for how little work they actually had to do), but that could just be the dealership or because the labor rates of the area. Kudos to customer who thought of a locksmith - didn't even thinks of that.
It feels secure!!!

The Mopar hood lock is great! I dropped everything off with my locksmith for a one-day turnaround. He charged me $25. I ordered a T-Rex billet grille for a complete install. Keep in mind you will have to assemble the lock prior to installation... 4 rivets to be exact. If you've never used a rivet gun before, drill a hole between 2 surfaces and practice. You'll get a feel for it. I messed up the first rivet and I spent nearly 40 minutes drilling out the rivet. Lesson learned. Once it is all riveted together, you'll use 4 more rivets to fasten the lock to the frame. As I continue my upgrades, I'll eventually upgrade the security system. This will be peace of mind for now.

Easy install process. RIVET SIZE: 1/4" (the included parts lost does not say). The security provided allows for less worry when leaving it in a parking lot/area you aren't familiar with. This is a wise purchase to make.
ConsIncluded parts list/instruction sheet is not very informative. You will need a rivet gun that accepts 1/4" rivets.
Subtle and secure

You will have to buy riveter to install this! Install is easy after that. Took me 30 minutes including the grill removal and reinstall. I went to a local locksmith and had them cut me a extra key (without the chip) so in that I could open the hood while the engine is running. The rubber seal around the key hole is a little weird to get used to.
ProsMopar product Very secure
ConsKey cannot be removed while the lock is open (cannot leave unlocked) Requires an uncommon size riveter
Great purchase for piece of mind

Living in NYC and adding LED headlights to my JK, this was a no-brainer for me to buy, simply for the piece of mind. It was easy to install; just make sure you have a rivet gun that can support up to 1/4" rivets, as the rivets supplied with this are 7/32". Once you have the grill off, it attaches in minutes.
