Easy order, easy install
Although install is ten minutes, I'll take a 1AAuto you tube video anytime. Just to make sure I needed to order the hood latch instead of cable.

Quality Online Service
The part I ordered was the same as the factory original, the video 1AAuto offered on their site in reference to this part was very helpful. I am not a handyman and usually have no confidence in installation of any parts to my truck. Watching the video gave me the confidence it looked so simple and it was, took 5 minutes, really!!! shocked my wife.

I will do more business in the future with 1AAuto when needed. Anyone looking for quality parts and the confidence to install on your own. Take the time to watch the video on the many parts a services available.

1AAuto is A PLUS!
