    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.

        Is this all black or is there some silver in it?

        • The Rugged Ridge Aluminum Hood Catch Kit will be all black, including the nuts and threaded rod.

        Does this fit the Power Dome hood?

        • This is a direct fit replacement for the factory hood catches, and will be compatible with most hoods that are compatible with factory hood catches. We just haven't tested these with that particular hood and are unable to guarantee this.

        Are these painted silver or are the bare aluminum? If they are painted, or they powder coated, or a paint that would be easily stripped or painted over? Thank you!!

        • These will have a silver finish applied.

        Some of the customer photos show the catch and all other hardware (screws, threads) in ALL black and other photos have the screws and threads in silver. Which one do I order if I want ALL black? Which one do I order if I want the silver?

        • The Rugged Ridge Aluminum Hood Catch Kit will include black hardware. Stainless hardware can be purchased from a local hardware store if you desire the black/stainless look.

            Could not be more pleased

            If only Jeep would have these as standard equipment. The rubber supports that come from the factory just do not cut it, especially at highway speeds. I have yet to see the hood move at all after this install. They look great and were exceptionally easy to install. I wish I had purchased these sooner.

            Review from Rugged Ridge Aluminum Hood Catch Kit - Textured Black (07-18 Jeep Wrangler JK)

            Way better than stock.

            For anyone looking for a aftermarket replacement this is definitely the way to go. I unfortunatly had an animal chew get hungry and chew up my stock ones (yea you read that right). To combat these critters I figured aluminum would be the way to go. Only issue I had would be the fit is quite right. One seems to sit lower than the other but this could also be user error. Also the directions you recieve while having detailed illustrations are lacking in a descriptive step by step process and tool list. Tools needed: Socket Set with elbow joint and 10mm and 13mm sockets, Allen Wrench, and a steady hand wouldn't hurt either. You can avoid the elbow joint by taking off the grille which is fairly simple. All and all quality product that looks great and eliminates hood flutter. Also I have yet to have stray animals chew them up.
