    Review & Installation Video

    I'm Ryan from ExtremeTerrain.com, and this is my review and installation of the Rugged Ridge Body Armor Hood Stone Guard to the all 2007 to 2016 J case. Today we're gonna talk about the construction and of course the installation of this stone guard. The leading edge of your hood can be a magnet for stone throws. So whether you have some damage you're looking to cover up, or if you're looking to protect that area from damage in the future, this piece will definitely do the trick. This is also a visual modification, so as part of a package or a stand-alone accent piece, this will also visually change up the look of the front of your jeep. Now as far as visual mods go, this is right around the price that you would expect it to be. So if this is something that you'd like to see on your jeep, I would say it's worth the price. This stone guard is made of a black thermoplastic that has been UV-treated so it's not going to fade in the sun and become gray, and the thermoplastic means it's gonna be nice and strong, so even if you do catch a stone throw in the highway, it's not going to crack. As you can see, it has this diamond plate texture on the top of it which some of you will like, some of you not as much. It is a little bit more of an old school look, so that is something to consider when looking at this stone guard. As far as installation goes, it has a couple of tabs molded right into it that will go into the existing holes that you have for your upper hood latch, and on the underside, of course, automotive-grade 3M tape that makes installation really easy and also non-permanent. If you want to be able to remove this part down the line, you can always do that by just popping off a couple of nuts, giving it a pull and cleaning off the adhesive. So as I mentioned, installation is super simple for this stone guard. You're going to have two tabs and the 3M adhesive that hold it into place. The first step in the installation is removing the nuts from the upper hood latches on the inside of your hood. From there, you want to make sure that the surface that's going to be contacted by the 3M tape is nice and clean. You can use an alcohol prep pad or any alcohol-based cleaner to clean that off. Once everything is clean, give this a test fit, then you can peel a small two-inch section of the adhesive, put it on the hood and, again, make sure that it fits properly. After you have everything test fit, you can peel the rest of the red backing off of the 3M tape, go ahead and re-install the nuts over the upper hood latches and press everything into place. Anytime you're using 3M adhesive to attach anything automotive, you wanna make sure you do it when the weather is right around 70 degrees or possibly, even warmer. If you try installing this on a 30-degree winter's day, chances are the 3M adhesive isn't going to tape. It's not going to bond well and eventually, it's gonna try and pop off. If you do this when the weather is nice or in a heated garage, let the adhesive set up properly and, of course, re-install those nuts on your hood latches. This is going to be permanent until you wanna remove it. The whole installation for this product shouldn't take you more than half hour to complete, and you won't need any specialty tools, just some sockets for the nuts and the hood latches and, of course, a good alcohol based cleaner for the surface of the hood. This stone guard is just shy of a hundred dollars, and for me I like to spend the money on my Jeep on functional modifications. So if you're looking at this from a stand point of covering up damage that's already on your hood, it's going to be significantly cheaper than metal repair and paint repair. If you're looking at this to protect the leading edge of your hood, I think it's a great investment. Or if you just like the look of this part, again, I do think it's worth the price because of the build quality. So whether you're looking to cover up damage on the leading edge of your hood, protect it from damage in the future or you just like the look of this diamond plate looking rock guard, this is going to be an inexpensive and easy to install addition to your jeep. So that's my review of the Rugged Ridge Body Armor Hood Stone Guard for the all 2007 to 2016 J case that you can find right here at ExtremeTerrain.com.

    I live in Alaska, is the tape durable enough to withstand extreme cold?

    LisaS

    • The temperature range of the tape that is included with Rugged Ridge Body Armor Hood Stone Guard is a much lower than temperatures you would likely see even in Alaska but recommended you apply some 3M adhesion promoter to the installation as this would just help it bond even better.

      Rugged hood rock chip protector

      Well I can only give this 3 stars. I deducted 1 star as the holes didn’t line up with the hood latch holes. They were off bu about a quarter of an inch. The part was reworkable though. I deeucted a second star as the double sided tape starts to lift apart almost 3/16 of an inch from the hood as the hood gets hot from the sun and motor running and the rugged guard doesn’t stay down in the center of the hood like the sides. Where there was a gap between tape segments supplied on the guard. It would be a pain to get the old tape off to correct that deficiency and then have to get new 3m tape to replace. Other than those two issues real nice.

      OK But Wrinkles in Heat

      Great look except when it gets above 80 degrees F ambient. Expansion causes it to wrinkle a little and raise up from the tape, mostly in the middle.

      Looks great, fit wasn't perfect.

      I really like this stone guard and with the miles I've put on through highway driving it is needed. I have a '14 Rubicon X with the power dome hood. This didn't quite fit correctly out of the box. With a few alterations (drill out the holes on the plastic another 1/4" or so on each side) and it fits nicely. It really makes the front end look tough!!!

      Awful fit would not recommend

      Actually bought one and did not fit correctly buckled in middle. Tried to make it work with no luck. I was on a trip recently and @ highway speed it snapped on both sides @ screw points and blew off. It scratched hood and windshield frame. Would not recommend !!!

      Warped in literally 1 day because of temp change

      Warped and became unstuck to the Hood after one day that had a temperature change here in New York. Extreme terrain wouldn’t accept the return either. Don’t waste your money.

      Good all around upgrade

      This piece protects the hood well however I did have to drill a hole in it in order so it would fit properly. I does bend and lift when driving on the interstate. Doesn't seem to be a problem though. Overall the look is fantastic and it matches well with most cowel covers and stock trim pieces.

      Love it BUT...

      Great material and great product. There are two holes on both ends that go under the hood latches followed by two 3m double sided tape that is used to keep it in place. The only issue I ran into making sure the holes aligned properly with the ones from the hood latches. At first this honestly became a pain but what I ended up doing was enlarging the holes where the latches where originally in on one side. After that it was perfect. I wish they would make the holes the screws go in a little bigger, To save time and prevent any modifications from taking place on the hood itself.
