      Video Review & Installation

      Ryan: This Rugged Ridge hood catch kit is for those of you that have a 1997 to 2006 TJ that are looking to replace your factory hood catches with a factory style one that's just a little bit less expensive than going directly to Mopar or your dealership to get a replacement. This is still going to look and function just like a factory hood catch. This is going to be a nice, easy one-out-of-three wrench installation. Simply unbolt your factory catches and bolt these in place. But we'll talk more about that in just a second. So, whether your hood catches are faded, whether the rubber piece in the center here has dry-rotted and broken on you, whatever the reason is that you're looking to replace your hood catches, this is going to be a factory-like option at a very fair price. As for construction, these are going to be built just like a factory set of hood catches. There are all types of aftermarket ones that you can get that are metal, or aluminum, they're powder-coated, they're different colors, they latch in different ways, they're adjustable. These aren't going to be any of that. These are going to be a very factory-style replacement set of hood catches. For a pair of these hood catches, you're only going to have to spend $35. I think that's a very fair price for what you're getting here. If you're looking to replace your catches, this is going to be a great buy. Now, I'll have a member of the install team show you how you get these bolted up. Man: Today, I'll be showing you guys how to install the Rugged Ridge hood catch kit for your '97 to 2006 Jeep Wrangler. First thing we're going to do to get this install started is open up our hood. Next thing we're going to do, using a 15-millimeter socket and ratchet, is remove the hood catch portion that is attached to the fender of the Jeep. We're going to do the same thing on the other side now. I have a 13-millimeter socket. Next, we're going to remove the portion of the hood catch that's attached to our hood. I have a 10-millimeter socket on my impact gun and we're using a pry bar to hold our hood up here because the factory hood prop is not present on this Jeep. We're going to do the same thing on the other side now. Again, I have a 10-millimeter socket on my impact gun. And we'll pull this out. We can now install our new hood catch kit. And we have a 10-millimeter socket on our impact gun here. And we're going to do the same thing on the other side now for the hood portion of our hood catch. We'll get our nuts on here. Again, these are 10-millimeter. One thing I do want to mention here before we install the lower portion of our hood catch is, if you're installing these on a Jeep with stock fenders, you have to line up your two indexing pins with the holes in the fender. If you're installing these on a Jeep with aftermarket fenders like we are, you have to simply cut your indexing pins off with a pair of pliers because there are no holes for them in our aftermarket fenders here. We can now install the lower portion of the hood catch onto our fender. I'll say this again. If you're installing this hood catch kit on a Jeep with aftermarket fenders, there's a good chance that there will not be holes for these indexing pins, so what we're going to do is just snip them off with a pair of pliers. And they are plastic, so they do cut off pretty easily. We can now close our hood and latch the hood down with our new hood catches. That's going to wrap up our review and install of the Rugged Ridge hood catch kit. Be sure to check out more at extremeterrain.com.
