    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.

      Love the look and durability!

      These were definitely the best thing I've purchased for my Jeep so far! I was driving 120 miles round trip for school 4 days a week and these completely ended the flopping of the hood while on the interstate!

      2018 Jeep Aluminum Hood Latches installed.

      Again Rugged Ridge produced a high quality sharp looking part for the Jeep brand. The Rugged Ridge Aluminum Hood Latches are no exception. The casting is of high quality and the kit comes complete with everything needed for a quick install minus tools for installation. Directions are clear and have nice picture illustration for each step.

      Best latch I've used

      I had used several hood tie downs/catches and by far this is the best. The quality of construction, the ease of installation and operation make it one of the better catches on the market.

      Not bad... not too bad at all.

      Not to bad, the look is cool, rugged. The function of holding the hood down without flutter... perfect! But be aware, this is all metal, and can scratch your fenders when opening.

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

      High Quality and Nicely Packaged

      Installed these the other day on my 2017 JKUR and they completely eliminated hood flutter at any speed I am brave enough to achieve in a Jeep. I like that the textured ones are all black, including the adjusting stud and nuts. Very happy with this item and recommend it. The packaging was good, with foam that had pockets for all the bits, keeping everything organized, which made installation easier. NOTE: The retaining nut on the lower part is difficult to access. Popping the 6 plastic body fasteners on the top of the grill and tilting the grill forward allows one to insert a ratchet wrench and socket below the headlight and then bring it up and use it. It would be nice to see a torque spec on the fasteners.

      easy and a must do on the JK

      The OE Hood catch works but over time they stretch, dry-rot, and becomes a safety issue. With the Aluminum Hood Catches they add style and eliminates the hood flutter that could cause the OE ones to fail. They can be installed with or without taking off the grill. If you have big chunky fingers like I do I would recommend removing he grill. If you don't have the chunky fingers I will still recommend to remove the grill. just because it make it easier to see what your doing. If you don't get new hood catches I would recommend checking the Hood latches with every oil change to see if there is any defects, or damages.

      Absolutely stops hood bounce. A little tricky to get to the bottom bracket but doable. Looks trick too! Jeep needs to address this problem. That said I'm glad Rugged Ridge has better engineers.
