      Justin: If the factory hood catches on your 2007 to 2018 JK are faded or damaged or possibly causing excess hood flutter, then you might wanna look into these affordable billet options from the gang at RedRock 4x4. Now, this pair of hood catches will combine an extremely durable and rigid billet aluminum for strength and then will be finished off in a textured black powder coat all for right around that $75 price point.So again, the RedRock Billet Catch Kit that we have here today is gonna be a great low-cost replacement for a set of faded factory catches or maybe a set of dry rotted rubber catches that might be contributing to some added hood flutter at highway speeds or maybe on a bumpy trail. Now to help prevent that, going with a more solid design is never really a bad idea and that is gonna be the case when we're talking about the RedRock 4x4 set that we have here today.Now, this is one of several different catch kits that you'll encounter here at XT and honestly, it's one of my favorites for a couple of different reasons. It's a very simple design, it looks pretty good, and, finally, the price is gonna be one of the most affordable in the category. Now in regards to that simple design, you can kinda see what I'm talking about, right? Unlike other options that might use an adjustable rod and bearing or a threaded design, the RedRock kit that we have here uses a simple drill design that looks clean and, let's be honest, will have fewer parts to ultimately rust or fail unlike other more expensive kits out there.Now that rust really shouldn't be any concern at all with this particular kit from RedRock for a couple of different reasons. First and foremost, you have that great material and the aircraft-grade billet aluminum, but on top of that, that material has been finished off in a black powder coat with a little bit of a texture to it which I really like because I think it just gives it a little bit more character compared to maybe a flat black or a gloss black.Now when installed, you're getting a very clean, yet beefy look that will certainly do a much better job of keeping your hood secure at all times. Another feature I do dig with this particular kit is that all of your mounting surfaces do include a soft rubber pad and that's there of course to help prevent any scratching once everything's installed. Now last but not least, guys, don't take my word for it on all this stuff. Feel free to read up on the numerous four- and five-star reviews back on the product page if you haven't done so already, and, while you're there, feel free to check out some of the corresponding customer-submitted images just to get a better sense of how these might look on your own JK at home.But aside from the burly construction, the powder coat, and just that really tough look, I do wanna point out the fact that this kit from RedRock will be a direct swap with no drilling or modification needed. Now, because of that, the site's just gonna stick with a soft one out of three wrenches on the difficulty meter. Call it a couple of hours to complete from start to finish which I feel is being a bit generous. Now to give you a better idea of just how this job will go down, here's an XT customer to walk you through it now.Man: They came with an instruction kit here to how to install them and a set of Allen wrenches. We also, for this repair... we are going to be using a quarter-inch ratchet, a 10-millimeter... this is a deep well socket and a 13-millimeter socket. To start off, what we're gonna do is we're gonna take off our latches [inaudible 00:03:21], unlatch the latches. [inaudible 00:03:24] the hood. Support it with the rod. Okay. Per our instructions, we are going to start with the upper latch here. So, we're going to take our 10-millimeter socket on a ratchet. We're gonna go ahead and loosen these two 10-millimeter nuts that are on here. Take off this upper lip.Go ahead with our second nut.Set these to the side. Next, we're gonna install the new hood latch, the catch, up on the upper part. So, I'll start off. I'll just wipe this off. Get rid of all the dirt and grime underneath here. On our new one, you can see the hardware is supplied. Take off these securement nuts on the back side here making sure to keep the rubber on the back side here to protect the paint with the new one. So go ahead and slide this on with the latch facing up. Take the 10-millimeter nuts that came with it supplied with the new latch and we'll go ahead and we'll tighten these down. Get that on there. Get your 10-millimeter socket. Go ahead and we'll tighten them.I may have to use the Allen key that's supplied with that. [inaudible 00:05:36] in there. And that'll allow us to tighten it.And the upper one. Put the Allen key in there.You could [inaudible 00:06:05] this to get just a little more choke down there. Make sure it's good and tight. Now what we're gonna do is we're gonna take off this lower latch. To do so, you need to take your 13-millimeter ratchet. Inside here on the back side, there's one nut that holds this thing on. So, we'll slide this ratchet down in here. Get on the nut. And we'll go ahead and loosen this.[inaudible 00:06:51]On our [inaudible 00:06:56], we have a little bit of rust on here so you may need to use some kinda Channellock or something to hold this. I'm gonna try and see if I can get this by hand but maybe [inaudible 00:07:06] you guys will [inaudible 00:07:06] too.And okay. Set that down. And wipe this all off. Get your [inaudible 00:07:29] Okay. Next, what we're gonna do is to install this new latch, you have to remove the Allen screws from here so you can get to the Allens in the bottom. So, you take your Allen key here, put it in the side, and loosen these out. Remove these.Take the bolts out.[inaudible 00:08:44]So, your screws are out. And then that'll slide out. Careful not to lose your pin. Okay. On this, we'll take the 13-millimeter nut off the back side of the lower latch mount. You can see we have the two guide pins. And make sure you keep your rubber on here so you don't damage your paint. Both will go through the little hole. The rubber will go in the back. You're gonna take this nut and squeeze it down here onto the back side of that bolt.Then we'll take our largest Allen key and tighten this down. And once it's threaded somewhat on there, we can go ahead and we'll put our 13-millimeter socket. And you can go ahead and tighten this down.All right. Okay. Then what we'll do is we'll slide our tube back in and we will go ahead and put our Allen keys back into the middle bracket.Take your Allen key [inaudible 00:10:47] and you tighten these down. I'm getting a little bit of pressure on this pin in the center. Lock it down so these will tighten up.And the other side.[inaudible 00:11:36] All right. Then you will press with this. Obviously, you'll wanna complete the same process on the other side to perform your replacement. Once that's all done, you can flip this down, and the test fit. Make sure the hinge is tightening down, pulling that hood tight. [inaudible 00:11:59] all lined up.Once this is installed, you can go back and you can do an adjustment on this. You can see there is a little bit of a leeway on these two bolts here and you can move this up and down to your desired preference to make sure this hood is lined up with your fender and held down all the way. So, that may have to go up or down depending on that.Justin: So, wrapping things up here, guys. If you'd like to improve not only the appearance but also the functionality of the hood catches on your JK at home, be sure to check out this kit from RedRock 4x4 right here at
