    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.

            Solid

            A definite upgrade from factory. Easy install. You will have to take off grill to replace passenger side bracket above fender. Other than that I would recommend if you are looking to stoop good flutter and replace old worn out factory hood latch. This is how it really should come from factory knowing that there is an issue with all wranglers. Took less than an hour to install.

            well worth the price. Look good and no mare hood flutter on the free way or when a huge hay truck comes down a 2 lane road from the other direction. Ez install, and probably easier if ya have small hands

            Purchased these 6 months ago to eliminate hood flutter that had started occurring with the stock latches. These were pretty easy to install and adds a stylish look to the jeep. But most importantly my hood has not moved a bit since they've been installed. Would definitely recommend

            Great, easy to install upgrade

            I went the route of what turned out to be a cheap Chinese made knock off of these and could not get them to fit no matter how far I adjusted. I returned them, and got these. The Rugged Ridge design adjusted perfectly for a nice, tight fit. They look great. They were easy to install, other than getting to the nut on the lower bracket (hard to reach behind the front light), but that is a Jeep issue, not the kit. Fit and appearance are great. They are a little pricey, but you get what you pay for.
