    Why in the world would this not fit a Rubicon but will fit a non Rubicon?

    ChristianN

    • The Rugged Ridge Hood Lift Kit will fit the Standard Rubicon hood, this is a misprint, which should read this does not work with the 10a/powerdome Rubicon hood.

    Do they if fact fit a 2016? A couple of your reviewers claimed problems. One stated he checked with the manufacturer and they stated "they do not fit 2016 2017 Wranglers", who's right? I'm interested, if they do in fact fit my 2016. Thanks, Scott H.

    • The Rugged Ridge Hood Lift Kit will work with all 2007 to 2017 Wranglers. Fitment can be confirmed on Rugged Ridge's online catalog by looking up their part number 11252.51

    Will these struts interfere with a switch control module that rests on top of the factory ECU, such as the Apollointech units?

    • The Rugged Ridge Hood Lift Kit guarantees fitment for all 07-18 wranglers with no interference of the ECU. (excluding Rubicon)

    Will this hood lift kit work with a AVG Avenger style hood?

    ChadV

    • The Rugged Ridge Hood Lift Kit is designed for OEM hoods and would not be a good match for aftermarket hoods such as the AVG Avenger, due to differences in weight and materials with different properties for strength.

      Fit perfect

      Went on very easily, took about an hour but I took my time. Love the extra clearance I get when the hood is up. Only caution I would give is be careful when putting the upper hood mount in as you could drop the backing plate into the hood and that would be a major pain to try and get out. So just take it slow and all will be fine.

      Hood Lift

      Pretty straightforward to install: no special tools, no need to make any new holes in anything! And the end result does just what it says it'll do: lifts the hood and supports it open without needing the separate stay. Instructions use real photos, which aren't very good; line drawings would be better, but likely more costly to produce.

      Hood lift for Jeep JK

      Was an easy do it yourself project, took me about 30 mins, the hardest part was getting the brackets into the hood other than that I was good to go! The hood opens with no problem and i’m So surprised why Jeep doesn’t come with this kit.

      Hood lift

      Very well put together hood strut system. I didn't have any issues with fitment once I took off the under hood sound dampener for installation. The struts are plenty strong enough to keep the hood up when open.

      Great product

      I would have given this item 5 stars if the back bolt bracket was easier to install on the upper mounts. It is a very time consuming and frustrating part to install. The rest of the install was great and went on very easy. Overall I love the product and honestly this is how it should have came from factory. It really helps if you do your own service and maintenance. It also helps prevent hood wobble when driving. It puts pressure against latches and cuts down on some noise from engine compartment. One of my favorite purchases to date.

      Hood lift review

      I installed a hood lift on a previous jeep so I had a clue about installing this lift on my 2011 wrangler.Stop being so cheap and make new instructions for new customers who don't know how to improvise or fabricate. Also why not make a hood lift that opens hood fully w pull of cable mechanism from dash.That would have a big "WOW" factor. Thanks for your time.

      Huge improvement over the stock set up. Makes life so much easier to work underneath. The directions were not the best but after putting the first one in the second one only took a few minutes. I would recommend this to all jeep owners

      No worries Hood Lift

      Quality Hood Lift Kit, although instructions are pretty weak there are several Youtube videos that help with the install. No more worring about the hood falling on me when working under the hood. Quality struts and mouting brackets. Used my own washers for mounting the brackets theirs were thin and undersized.
