      Specs. The hood catch of a Wrangler is even more likely to snap off eventually in the adventurous rough and tumble of off-road driving than the bracket that secures it. When this happens, you can use the Black Hood Catch by Rugged Ridge to replace the original part. This catch is tough and holds the hood down firmly, preventing bouncing or vibration and keeping rain from leaking into the engine compartment. It comes with a stylish, low-profile, anti-rust black finish.

      Construction. Durable Plastic is the material used by Rugged Ridge to manufacture their Black Hood Catch, which furnishes a direct fit replacement for OEM part 55176636AD. The catch is made to match all stock fitment and quality guidelines. This hood catch matches up to the stock bracket or ExtremeTerrain J11184. Rugged Ridge covers your purchase with a 5 year limited warranty versus defects.

      Application. This black Rugged Ridge Hood Catch is designed to fit the 1997-2006 Wrangler TJ models.

        Tight Fit

        These hold much tighter than the ones that were on there before.

        Does not line up

        When I bought this I was under the impression that this is the complete catch and top holder but it was only the bottom half. Needless to say that mine does not line up with the top half so you have to force it in.

        Hood latch

        Direct fit. Went on in less than 5 minutes. Would recommend it to anyone who needs a new latch that broke.

        This product was listed as power coated steel, it is plastic. A lot of hassle to return an unwanted product.

        It is what it is

        Basic stock catch replacement, fit perfect and got rid of the faded and dry-rotted factory hold down. Good price, only complaint is I wish it was stretched a little more when engaged, didn't fix my hood flutter like I was hoping.

        Worked like a charm!!!!

        I have a 97 Wrangler Sport. 20yr old vehicle, so when the rubber latch broke on the Hood Catch. While I was on the highway going 70mph, which sent my hood crashing into my windshield. (Scariest moment ever) I figured it was time to make re-up on a few parts. The Hood catches work and fit perfectly. Great price.
