very well could be, the availability date keeps marching backward, Quadratech still claims they start shipping 6/18 no year listed either

A couple of thoughts.....
  • Someone said they spoke to Bolt and Bolt confirmed the July date.
  • While this may be true, with over 20 updates to the delivery date since my 2/2018 order I wouldn't hold my breath.
  • This has nothing to do with Quadratec or any vendor. They'd love to ship and bill our credit cards--those of us who pre-ordered.

At one point there was a report that the elusive Hood Lock was standard on the European models. I just visited the German and UK Jeep websites, and while there are some interesting product differences between US/German/UK markets, there are no hood locks shown in the front views of the Wranglers I configured at these websites:

https://www.jeep.de/konfigurator/wrangler-unlimited/#/version

https://www.jeep.co.uk/car-configurator/wrangler-4-door/#/version

This suggests now that the Hood Lock isn't in production for the European market at our (USA) expense. More likely it's still not in production at all.

In the meantime there are some Chinese knock-off's available. (But how can a knock-off knock-off a product that hasn't come to market yet?) :)

Wordplay aside, if the Chinese products are of sufficient quality and attractive price and don't step on Bolt's patents, they might just establish a successful aftermarket foothold at price levels unattractive to Bolt and FCA. If Bolt and FCA can't compete against the aftermarket (beforemarket?) products, maybe we'll never see the Mopar Hood Lock...

It will be interesting to follow the reviews and experiences of those that bought the Chinese Hood Locks.

Looks like Quadratec is showing them to be in stock now.
