            not recommended

            had to sand them latches down so they don't rest against my hood. Might just been my year 1997 that is a issue. also the plastic locking piece is a joke. broke on the 10th time I locked it.

            Hood Catches

            Decent product. I'd rather see a metal version offered (as the original stock catches were), instead of aluminum but these are the next best thing. Much better than the plastic catches are for sure.

            Hood catches

            Love them. They look great, were easy to install, and (best of all) no hood flutter on the freeway!

            New Hood Catches

            Cured the hood flutter I experienced whenever I hit 60 or passed a truck going in the opposite direction. Great product.

            These hinges are awesome! I love the look of them and they keep my hood secure. The hardest part was removing the factory hinges. After that, installation was a breeze.

            Stylish and Tough

            The hood catches installed quickly and without fuss. The aluminum body will last far longer than the OEM plastic models.

            Does What it says

            These are a great fit/upgrade from the factory latches. However, one of the provided bolts snapped during installation.... it would be nice if the bolts were a better quality, but maybe it was a fluke and I got the one bad bolt of the batch.

            Bigger is better I guess.... lol

            Bigger than I expected but they hold the hood down nice and tight and look great! Good buy for the money

            Hood Catches

            I have a 1998 Jeep Wrangler sport. The hood when I would be driving on the interstate the hood would shake with the original catches. I was skeptical on purchasing these and spending that much money. I’m glad I did the hood vibration has reduced extremely. This was a very good purchase for my situation. I would highly recommend them if you have vibration on your hood.

            Good quality product

            Although these hood latches are a bit on the expensive side, they add a nice look to my jeep, they are easy to install and are adjustable so they fit perfect, which is getting harder to come by in the aftermarket world.

            Highly recommend

            I installed these latches a few weeks ago and so far they are great. Easy to install with basic tools and allen wrenches. I took these on the interstate today at 75 MPH and had absolutely no issues with the hood vibrating or rising up at all. I then took them on the trail to bounce them around a bit. They stayed latched and again I had no issues with the hood bouncing or moving around. My factory hood latch snapped and I bought a cheap replacement set off of e-bay. They flexed too much and I thought the hood was going to fly up so I sent them back. Don't waste your time with cheap replacements. I went to the dealer to buy factory replacements and they wanted to charge me more than this set cost me. Don't waste your time at the dealer. Learn from my piddling around. So far I am very happy with the Rugged Ridge latches. They are easy to install, look tough and are working great.
