Hey Y'all,
So a little back story... a couple years ago I installed a Smittybilt front bumper with a Badlands 12k# winch. In the process, the winch could not fit with the hood latch supporting bracket in place. So, naturally, I cut it out. The hood latch is still there and operates as it should, for the most part... But it just doesn't have the vertical supporting bracket.

Naturally, as you may expect, this has caused a bit of "hood flutter" at freeway speeds.

So my question to you all would be, has anyone installed hood catches on their rig? Or does anyone know if it would be possible to install some generic ones (made for TJs), or possibly some vintage FJ40 style hood catches?

Thanks for the feedback.

Easy to install hood latches, would look custom too.
