HI Chad, a couple of our customers have used the wide topper tape to prevent rattling of the hood. This also prevents the wear on the dash plate. If you use this, put it low enough on the dash so you can hardly see it. Hope this helps. Neal Pierce

Chad, The hood hinge "ears" should have bushings welded on. Make sure they are IN the holes of the frame. If they are, it sounds like the hood got "racked" at some time. Just gently bend it to fit properly.

The hood may have bent outward where it sits on the dash, my 7117H rattled too. I just bent it in a little with my hands now when it's latched it doesn't rattle. Another possible fix is to not latch the hood that was what I did too. I doubt you'll be backing up at highway speeds so the hood opening up should not be a problem. John
