    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?

    BrianO

    • 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.

      First mod any Jeep owner should make

      Wow this is an amazing product. We’ve had our JKU for about 8 months and wish we got these right from the start. They completely eliminate hood flutter and just by doing that we can hit 90 mph now without feeling like the Jeep is being pushed all over the road. They look great, are such a step up from the stock latches, and took 30 min to install.

      Great Clamps

      These are a great addition to the look of your Jeep. I didn't give it 5 Stars because the instructions could have does a better of job of instructing you on how to take off and put on the bottom bolt on the clasp. It took two extensions and a knuckle on my socket wrench to get to the bolt on both sides. Glad I had the tools to do it. Otherwise it keeps the hood down tight when rolling down the road and it looks great on the Jeep.

      Black ruby

      Replaced factory hood catch because I did not like the hood flap when I got above 50 mph especially @ 70 Well built, but a bit of a pain to install. Bolts at fender area where hard to get to I popped out the grill plugs and pulled the grill forward and it made instal easier. Be patient and place a mat under front end so when you drop a nut or two you can find them.

      Hood catch kit

      Fit was great but had a bolt that was bad took over 4 weeks to get new bolt. Ran the jeep with one off until i received it today took less than 5 min. to put on. Now it looks a lot better. So now I'm in a lot better mood. Rugged Ridge were dragging there feet. If it hadn't took so long I would have give it 5 stars.

      A Must Have

      When I had the factory hood catches and i would get on the highway I would get hood flutter at 60mph plus. These hood catches completely stopped the problem. easy to install, easy to use, and look great. I only wish that they had a locking system so I don't have to worry about my engine compartment being tampered with.
