    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.

      It laughs

      My jeep wrangler just laughs at semis now when they pass us. No more rubber band OEM rubber bands for me. I strongly recommend these hood latches!!!

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

      No more flutter!

      Performed as advertised: hood flutter is a thing of the past. The tough look is an added bonus. Instructions are essentially useless, but the catches are easy to figure out; just make sure you pull all the hardware out before you dive in. I was almost done before I found the bag of washers and felt compelled to start over.

      These Hood Catch's are amazing. Easy to install and really the catch's keep the hood from lifting when going high speeds on highway. Would recommend to purchase!

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

      Excellent

      I like everything about these replacement hood catches. Proper function. Good fit and finish. The passenger side unit was the most difficult to replace due to limited access to the fasteners. That had nothing to do with the new hood catches though. End result looks much better than the OEM units.

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

      Solid easy upgrade.

      These replacement hood latches are very well crafted. The hefty design locks the hood down much better than the flimsey factory latches. The installation took less than an hour and adjustment is a breeze. The hardest part is the blind nuts on lower mount. Recommend laying a towel on the ground under work area to keep the nut from getting away when you drop it , especially if you get the black hardware.

      Solid catch

      Love em. Did exactly what I wanted them to do. Install a pain due to access, however, that’s a Jeep issue not Rugged Ridge. Tested on very windy day on our Interstate passing semis and hood stayed solid. Would recommend.

      Good

      Good sturdy product. Ensure you have an extension and an angle for install. Installing the driver side latch was easy and took 5 minutes for me. Installing the passenger side took the rest of the hour due to tight spaces. I only leaked a little oil when the socket slipped off on the passenger side.

      Review

      This took a couple hours to install. The lower nut was very difficult to get to. So. I suggest you start with removing and installing the lower portion of the latch first. Not a beginner type upgrade. Will require patients and a couple special tools. Note* Must have a swivel socket (wrapped in electrical tape) adapter and will require removing the stock air cleaner assembly.

      Amazingly easy instal

      This was by far the easiest install I've done on my jeep so far. Everything just lined up perfect. plus i love the fact that the factory lower lights fit right in the Bumper. the only thing i would add to the instructions is where it states you may need to extend the wires to the lights. I pealed back the covering to get more length out of 1 side and re-wrapped the wires. Super easy with no cutting of factory wires.

      A must for all Wranglers

      Lots of information on how to install on various websites. It ends up being VERY easy. After only one year the factory latches started to turn gray and ugly. These fit well on my Black Smoky Mtn edition. You can't go wrong.

      Amazing Upgrade

      I was tired of the hood shake 0ver 50mph so I purchased these. Not only is the hood more secure, but they look amazing. Took me about 20 minutes to switch out and adjust. The only difficulty is getting to some of the bolts since I have big hands.
