if this has been covered before, let me know.
is there a easy way (or a hard way) to make a 71 fj40 hood a locking one. any parts could buy, say off an older model that would retrofit?

I know they make a key lock for the Heep hoods, I have one. might try looking into retrofiting one of those.

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.
