    Review & Install Video

    I'm Ryan from extremeterrain.com, and this is my review of the Rugged Ridge aluminum hood catch kit fitting all 2007 to 2016 JKs. This is available in the gloss black that you see here, but it's also available in a textured black and a silver finish, so you can get whichever one works with your build. These are for those of you who want to add a little custom touch to the hood area of your Jeep but also want to add some function. Jeeps, especially the JKs, are known for hood flutter at highway speed. There are a couple of different ways to fix that, from pulling out the factory hood spring to adding a stiffer rubber in your factory hood catches. But something like this that completely eliminates the rubber in the hood catch and replaces it with an all aluminum catch will definitely keep that hood held down solid, and you won't have any flutter. These are made of a really high quality material so they're going to hold up really well, and they're moderately priced. The high quality aluminum that these are made of is really important, especially for a component that's going to be up on the front of the Jeep and out in the weather all the time. These are going to hold up really well and they're not going to rust even if you do end up getting a chip in the finish like a steel part would. As I mentioned, these are available in three different finishes, which allows you to really customize the look of your Jeep. These come with everything that you need to get them installed, including a rubber gasket to put between the aluminum piece and your painted surface on your Jeep. That's just going to help protect your painted surfaces. One of the big functional parts of this hood catch kit is the fact that they do eliminate that hood flutter we talked about. That's due to the adjustable mechanism that's built right in. Getting these installed on your Jeep is really easy. These actually come right out of the box as you see them here. There's no guessing as far as which part goes where or how they get put together. The first step in the installation is to unbolt your factory hood catches from both the hood and the fender and remove a little plastic catch off of the factory piece to reinstall on the new ones. From there, it's just a matter of installing the new hood catches on the hood and the fender using all the included hardware and getting them adjusted properly. The whole installation process shouldn't take you more than 30 minutes and you won't need any specialty tools, just a socket set. I think this hood catch kit is really accurately priced. Of course, there are more expensive catches out there on the market and less expensive as is the case with most components, but I think these do a really nice job of balancing both price and value. You get the high quality aluminum with a really nice finish and you get the adjustability, so you have the function built right in, but they're not at that top tier price tag. Whether you're looking to change up the look of the front of your Jeep by adding these aluminum black hood catches or you're looking to eliminate hood flutter by getting rid of the rubber part of your factory hood catch, these are a really nice option that are built of high quality materials and moderately priced. That's my review of the Rugged Ridge aluminum hood catch kit available for all 2007 to 2016 JKs that you can find right here at extremeterrain.com.

    Will these work on a 2013 Rubicon 10th Anniversary? I would assume they will because the current Hard Rock hood looks like the same one as my 2013 but I'd rather ask first.

    would these work with Smittybilt XRC Front Fenders (Item J17686)? or will they get in the way?

    • The Rugged Ridge Aluminum Hood Catch Kit has not been tested with the Smittybilt XRC Front Fenders to confirm fitment, but from what info we have, it appears these should clear.

    Will these work with the Bushwacker pocket style fender flares?

    Mike

    • This Rugged Ridge Aluminum Hood Catch Kit does mount like the standard set of hood latches. The Bushwacker Factory Width Pocket Style Fender Flares - Front Pair, Item J102596, do cover the fenders substantially, and they unfortunately, would cause some interference with these hood catches offered by Rugged Ridge.

      Does exactly what it says. Installing was a little tough as you don’t have a lot of room to get your hands in to bolt on the bottom but once you get it, easy.

      Really good product!

      Overall, this is a great product. Install was simple, the look and feel is definitely heavy duty. I only rated this 4/5 starts because one of the plastic locking clip for the latch snapped off on one side. Doesn't really hurt it, but still annoying. Really love the look, completely removed hood flutter, and overall a strong product.

      Fixed the hood flutter, looks good but...

      Bought these catches to solve the hood flutter on my JK, they did exactly that. They are well constructed and easily installed [although the instructions aren't great]. All things considered I do recommend this product, I just think they are a little bulky and a bit overpriced

      Best upgrade I've done

      These things are solid and look way better than the stock catches . My stock catches had faded to grey. The biggest reason I looked into these hood catches was to remove the hood shake you get when you get a good head wind. We get a lot of high mph winds here in Texas and my hood doesn't budge

      Review from Rugged Ridge Aluminum Hood Catches - Silver (07-18 Wrangler JK)

      Install easier than anticipated

      After reading through some of the reviews of these latches, I was apprehensive about installation. In actuality, it was a snap. I suggest the use of a flex head end wrench (13 mm) for the catches. The second suggestion is that, if the manufacturer supplied washer/nut combos, the installation would be even easier.

      No easy chore

      The product is very good and makes the hood very secure compared to the original latches. Access to the nuts in the lower fender was brutal, major frustration and a trip to the hardware store to get the job done.

      2011 Jeep Wrangler Sahara

      Purchased my Jeep used. Everything looked good and drove well when purchased. A few weeks later, as I was traveling down the highway at 70mph, light winds, I met a semi headed the other direction. The hood catch on the passenger side broke. Called the dealer, as I had only had the vehicle for a few weeks. I was told he had never heard of the catch breaking. I was able to get OEM replacement catches. However, decided to try the Rugged Ridge hood catches. WHAT A DIFFERENCE. Although a bit of a pain to install, these are a great product. Tremendous difference in the hood flutter, which is non-existent now. And, I don't have to worry about my catches breaking!
