    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.

      Good Product

      These really dress up the front end of your Jeep especially if you have the old rubber latches. A little tight to work on these, but I found taking the grill off made it easier to install.

      Great look

      Love these hood latches. The only problem i had was to remove the factory ones, those 2 13mm bolts were a PITA to remove but when they came out, it took me 5 minutes on each side to install them. Highly recomend it.

      Hood Flutter!

      Easy to install and has stopped the fluttering of the hood at highway speed. Only issue is that one side of the latch is very close to the painted surface and I worry that it may scratch the paint.

      works great but...

      These totally removed the hood flutter. would have been super easy to install, however I had already installed Bushwacker fender flares. To say it was a tight fit would be an under statement. but in the end with some elbow grease and a few choice words they are in and work perfectly. these are a must for anyone tired of hood flutter.

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

      They do their job and look good

      Installation was easy after removing the six fasteners from the top of the grill and pulling it forward (2 minute job). Tough to get a wrench or socket on the lower latch back nuts without doing that. I chose to use the nuts from the factory latches instead of the ones that came with these latches because they have wider washers to distribute the load better. Look sharp, 80 mph in gusty winds and no more disturbing hood float. Completely satisfied.

      Somewhat tough install, great look

      I admit that this mod was purely for looks as my Recon edition hood has no flutter, but definetely a great look. Easy to install if you have smaller hands than I do, but I run into that problem every now and then. Just be careful not to let it flop when opening if you have stock painted fenders.

      Hood catch

      Bottom nuts were a little tricky to reach, I used a swivel socket and managed it . The hood no longer flutters, the latches work great.

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

      Fit Was Difficult

      While the installation was easy, the fit of the hood catches was not perfect and took some improvising to get correct. I installed these on a 10th Anniversary model (same hood as the Hard Rock), so maybe a normal hood would have better luck. The hood catch would contact the hood when latched, causing a loud CLUNK and noticeable scratching of the hood. We ended up adding some washers, an extra gasket, and wallowing out some of the mounting hardware to get the latch to close without contacting the hood. Besides the fit, the latches look cool and eliminated the hood flutter. Functional, but plan on some futzing to get things to fit well.
