There is a modification available to enable you to operate the hood remotely on the X100 and X150 convertibles. Once fitted you simply press the headlight button on the remote then press the lock button to raise the hood. To lower the hood press the headlight button and then the unlock button. The hood will operate automatically.
The kit is available from www.thejagwrangler.com. The cost is about £105 for the X100 and £150 for the X150. Fitting takes about 4 hours.
