    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.

        Some of the customer photos show the catch and all other hardware (screws, threads) in ALL black and other photos have the screws and threads in silver. Which one do I order if I want ALL black? Which one do I order if I want the silver?

        • The Rugged Ridge Aluminum Hood Catch Kit will include black hardware. Stainless hardware can be purchased from a local hardware store if you desire the black/stainless look.

            Stylish and Functional

            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.

            Excellent product

            I bought these to get rid of the hood flutter. So far they are working fantastically, and they look pretty good to boot! It's a bit difficult to get to the bolt on the factory latches, you either need really small hands or a long wrench, so be prepared to have to purchase a tool or two in order to install these yourself They are adjustable, so you can make them grip the hood as tightly or loosely as you want. Very glad I bought these, not a bad price for the function that they provide.

            Best to have SMALL Hands

            Fortunately for me I had to install new headlights so my grill and headlights were out. I could see how this would be more difficult with those in place. For that reason it was not difficult. I think it should take no more than 30 minutes to complete. The hardware is solidly built and the instructions are decent. Make sure that you don't forget to use the included washers.

            These hood latches are the answer to eliminate hood flutter when on the expressway. I hesitated at the price, but after installing these latches, they are worth the cost. Very well made, easy to install and adjust, and look good.

            These hood latches got rid of all the hood flutter from the stock ones! Only problem is they are made in CHINA! If I would have known this I would NOT have bought them! Only reason I didn't give them 5 stars.

            Aluminum Hood Latch

            Fairly easy install, just figuring best bolt access. Item is solid and looks great. Though on one of my latches, quite tight and max'ed bolt thread length. Otherwise, definitely a firm hood latching.

            ATTENTION JEEPERS w/ XRC FENDERS

            Great product. High quality and really helps prevent the hood from bouncing. XRC FENDER OWNERS: Beware these latches do not fit in the slots of the xrc fenders. The bottom half of the latch had the be sanded and re finished in order to fit. Make sure you have a few hours set aside for this project. Definitely worth it for the looks and hood tightness. Let me know if you have questions on the modifications.

            reason for getting. I drive a lot of HWY. hood flutter on a windy day freaks me out. these work well. little bulky looking and not exactly a polished finish. but better that eating a hood at 80mph. functional but not the best out there.
