So Random question, why does the UK wrangler come with the hood lock as standard (this is an assumption but as I have not seen one without) but yet the American jeeps don't and they moan about this feature not being standard?!

 

Anyone got any theories as to why it has not been included as standard worldwide for a bit of fun?  :wav1

Part of the Thatcham/insurance industry conspiracy, same as those stupid locking wheel nuts.

^^^Correct. Plus, you wouldn't steal from a JK in the US; you can buy everything cheap from Craigslist, eBay or other outlets.

So when people in the Uk have those "angry bird" grills, do they just not bother locking?

Yes Harry a lot of people do not bother locking... however locking hood hold downs are availiable as a secondary option  :icon_e_wink:
