    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.

      hood catch

      Easy to install. Suggest re-using factory nuts with integrated washer. Easier to start on bolts and don't have to fumble around with a separate washer and nut as supplied in the kit.

      Sweet product

      It’s a great product! I gave it 4 stars because the safety snap (the plastic piece that holds the latch down) breaks super easy. Careful when installing or opening the hood. Don’t go too tight

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

      One word; GREAT!

      I am absolutely pleased with these hood catch/latches! Install was simple, product quality is great, they work great and look great! I have not experienced ANY hood flutter/buffeting since installing these! Very pleased! The only thing I marked down was the "bang for your buck," and simply that is because they are $99, which is a tad expensive for an accessory in my opinion. BUT, it being a functional issue more than just a cosmetic reason of buying these, they do exactly what they were purchased for, and with that being said I think they are worth it even though they are not inexpensive, AND it shows in the quality of the product! What do they say, "you get what you pay for"??? They most certainly do the job they are intended for, and cured my hood flutter/buffeting issues! Would definitely recommend them, and buy them again!

      Very sturdy

      The product met my expectations in regard to how sturdy it was built and appearance. It truly snugs down the hood much better than the rubber latches that will eventually lose their firmness over time with the exposure to weather and sun. The install was a bit challenging due to the location of the fender bolt which to get to was very difficult due to the tight spacing but this not a product issue but rather an installation issue.

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

      Good product at a decent price

      This is a great product, but I wish it had come with installation instructions that showed how to uninstall the old latches. This would have been a little easier if you knew the tips and tricks to get a socket or wrench in the right spots. That being said, the only other thing to watch for is loosening the nuts to adjust the new latches. If you loosen one end of the latch, it has a very limited number of turns before it comes out of the hole completely. If I remember correctly, the top screw has a little more adjustment leeway. Overall this is a great product and I am glad I purchased them! They hold the hood down much better at highway speeds!

      Great fit and finish

      These are a very great upgrade. Going down the highway the hood fluttered very bad and after installing these the hood is very solid. Fairly difficult to get a socket on the bottom side to take off and install the new hinge. I pulled the bolts out of the fender and pulled it out a bit to get the socket on the bolt easier. Over all very great product. would highly highly recommend these to you if the hood makes you nervous going down the highway

      Five years in and the stock rubber hood latches broke. These are very wellmade and should last as long as the rest of the vehicle. They are easy to open and close in all types of weather. They look great. I am very pleased with this product.
