I guess I get it. It was just never something I worried about. I guess it's different in NYC though...I grew up in NYC, anything that wasn't secure grew legs...
There have been reports of batteries stolen from jeeps over the years, and one report of the hood growing some legs too.
It is just a small deterent to have a lock hood, and more secure for safty too. Cheeze, all the BS they put in jeeps these days, like a heated stearing wheel, but can't get a hood lock option LOL! It is kinda funny at a $60,000 price point, you have to admit that.
