    Check the rubber screws on both sides of the top of the support. They may be too high or too low.

    Did you leave a tool on top of the brain box or the ABS distribution? LOL. I would unbolt the latch support from the front of the core support, close the hood and get it lined up without the latch. Then, see if you need to alter the latch support...

    What year truck is this?
    On the first gen you can adjust the peg with the spring on the hood up or down.
    On a second gen you adjust the latch on the core support.
