    It's called the "Headlight Filler". You can get them just about ahywhere, go to google and type it in and you will get all kinds of hits. They are like $14 a peice. And you can get them painted to match your truck.

    I have the same problem. Actually kind of the same. I HAVE to slam my hood very hard in order for it to latch? I have greased the hell out of it with no improvements?

    As a result, I have lost one of these little metal pieces you refer to AND I typically blow a headlight from jarring the front end too much.

    Anyone else have a problem with there hood latch???

    yeah so do i but my problem is trying to get the hood to pop up and unlatch while pulling the lever thing in the cab. So I always have to have someone else pull up on the hood while puliing the lever for it to pop up.
