            Hood latch

            Latches are great looking but weak and hood bounces all over. Taking them off and Tossing them in the garbage. I wouldn’t even try and resell them.

            Perfect Replacement

            This is a complete replacement kit for both sides of the hood. It includeds all harware. These hood catches feel and work as the OEM latches do. I am very pleased with this purchase,

            These hood catches were simply perfect. They fit well and installed great. Set aside around an hour and a half, depending on the wear on your factory catches.

            Exactly the part I needed and a 10 minute job to replace 12 year old catches.

            So far so good

            Just got them, was quick delivery. They dont seem very heavy duty, but dor the price i was willing to try them. Only reason i gave a 4 star is that one was marked up a bit also had a issue with 1 bolt wanting to spin when trying to tighten it down.

            Okay except for...

            They're okay for the price but you'd think Rugged Ridge would have used coated hardware. The fastener that secures the base to the fender is not and is causing rusty water to run down my fenders.
