this is a hood lock that has been discussed on the LCML I am thinking of using. Made for a jeep but from what others have said it can be used on a 40, although the starter kill part of the unit may not work? Not sure if I will use but just an idea. My project is WAY far away from this type of thing.
the jeep one looks alright, wonder if theres any way to put a door lock in the key lock one and get it keyed the same as ignition?
thought about the padlock route, but could see being on the mountain with a problem and the key back at home :ugh:
One of my friends just put a eye bolt on the middle of the hood, on the front, facing down, and another eye bolt, slightly offset on the front bib facing up, so that he could run a standard lock between them, locking the hood to the front bib. Not pretty, but effective.
