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

    • 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 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.

      Lifted!

      No, not the jeep itself, although that is lifted too! I'm talking about the hood!!! The hydraulic arms worked great - love this mod! Just unlatch and start to raise the hood...the hydraulics will take it from there!!! The instructions leave quite a bit to be desired - look for an online video for help! I did eventually figure it out on my own, though!!! Good product! Well worth the money!!!

      Very good product.

      These hood lifts are a great addition for your Jeep. Mine has a 3 1/2" lift so I couldn't lift the hood high enough to get the support rod in place. These eliminate the problem and are very easy to install.

      Great Hood Lift Kit

      This is a great hood lift kit. No drilling or cutting. It was very easy to install. Only took me about 1/2 hour to install. Works great and no more hood prop.

      Rugged Ridge Hood Lift Kit

      Easy install. Only tricky part is attaching the mount to the hood. Under 30 minutes. Kit is missing 2 washers. Got a couple from the local hardware store. Honestly the 'missing' washers aren't required. For my Rubicon, I have an electronic brackets on both sides where the lower mounting brackets are bolted in with the M6 x 18 bolt. Could easily skip the washer on the inside with the electronic bracket. After installation I noticed my hood sits about an 1/2-1 inch higher in front before latching down.

      Rugged Ridge Hood Lift Kit

      Easy install, Took about 20 minutes, no mods necessary unless you have the hood insulation(just needs to be trimmed) looks like it came from the factory, much nicer than the prop rod. These should be standard from Jeep.

      Love the hood lift!

      I've never particularly liked hood props on cars, so I shopped around quite a bit to find the best setup that required no modifications to the car, and was affordable. All of my research led me to this product, and it looks like I chose wisely! Install took me about 30 minutes using all existing hood holes, and I love it! It was missing two washers, but they were about $.25 at the hardware store, so no big deal at all! Makes it easier to work under the hood, and actually opens it higher than if the prop was there. I showed a few local jeep people and they all immediately wanted one! I highly recommend this.

      Caused hood to misalign

      Great idea, easy install with clever no drill brackets. Unfortunately after installing I noticed that the struts were so strong that it was pushing the entire hood forward. (Huge gap appeared between cowl and hood; hood latches no longer lined up) The problem seems to be where the hood hinges mount to the cowl. There isn't enough beefy metal there to deal with the added force of the hood struts pushing forward. I tried to realign the hood several ways, including trying to shim the hinges, but ultimately ended up just popping the struts off. I see that most of the reviews are positive and only one other person mentioned this exact issue. Pretty frustrating as the parts are high quality. Spoke directly to Rugged Ridge and they are aware of the issue but it is not widespread. Something about manufacturing tolerances. Hope this doesn't happen to you!

      Easy to install and works perfectly. Took maybe 30 minutes to install. Download instructions on ET were dark and hard to figure out the connection to the hood from the picture. Instructions on YouTube were great and made the install simple and easy to understand.

      Easy Install Kit

      Perfect addition to the engine bay. They're out of the way so you can work in the engine bay. Hood closes just right. Install was a breeze. Just be careful you don't drop the backing screw plate inside the hood like I did, but a strong nickel size earth magnet I had, I was able to slide it back up to the hole and grab it. Highly recommend to all.
