Dodge truck hood latch
The part works just fine. Fast shipping. Easy to install

Fast and timely
The products I purchased arrived in a timely manner and we’re of good quality. Unfortunately after I assembled it and try to attach it to the vehicle, I found out the clip that holds the rod in at the top by the latch is also broken off and needs replaced. So unfortunately at this time I cannot put the rod on the truck.

Do you have the retainer clip or keeper you called it for the secondary hood latch rod. the one that holds it in to the hood latch release? Like the greenish one in your video?

We do not stock the retainer clip or keeper, but you may re use the original or purchase through a separate vendor.
