    I'm Ryan from extremeterrain.com, and this is my review of the Rugged Ridge aluminum hood catch kit fitting all 2007 to 2016 JKs. This is available in the gloss black that you see here, but it's also available in a textured black and a silver finish, so you can get whichever one works with your build. These are for those of you who want to add a little custom touch to the hood area of your Jeep but also want to add some function. Jeeps, especially the JKs, are known for hood flutter at highway speed. There are a couple of different ways to fix that, from pulling out the factory hood spring to adding a stiffer rubber in your factory hood catches. But something like this that completely eliminates the rubber in the hood catch and replaces it with an all aluminum catch will definitely keep that hood held down solid, and you won't have any flutter. These are made of a really high quality material so they're going to hold up really well, and they're moderately priced. The high quality aluminum that these are made of is really important, especially for a component that's going to be up on the front of the Jeep and out in the weather all the time. These are going to hold up really well and they're not going to rust even if you do end up getting a chip in the finish like a steel part would. As I mentioned, these are available in three different finishes, which allows you to really customize the look of your Jeep. These come with everything that you need to get them installed, including a rubber gasket to put between the aluminum piece and your painted surface on your Jeep. That's just going to help protect your painted surfaces. One of the big functional parts of this hood catch kit is the fact that they do eliminate that hood flutter we talked about. That's due to the adjustable mechanism that's built right in. Getting these installed on your Jeep is really easy. These actually come right out of the box as you see them here. There's no guessing as far as which part goes where or how they get put together. The first step in the installation is to unbolt your factory hood catches from both the hood and the fender and remove a little plastic catch off of the factory piece to reinstall on the new ones. From there, it's just a matter of installing the new hood catches on the hood and the fender using all the included hardware and getting them adjusted properly. The whole installation process shouldn't take you more than 30 minutes and you won't need any specialty tools, just a socket set. I think this hood catch kit is really accurately priced. Of course, there are more expensive catches out there on the market and less expensive as is the case with most components, but I think these do a really nice job of balancing both price and value. You get the high quality aluminum with a really nice finish and you get the adjustability, so you have the function built right in, but they're not at that top tier price tag. Whether you're looking to change up the look of the front of your Jeep by adding these aluminum black hood catches or you're looking to eliminate hood flutter by getting rid of the rubber part of your factory hood catch, these are a really nice option that are built of high quality materials and moderately priced. That's my review of the Rugged Ridge aluminum hood catch kit available for all 2007 to 2016 JKs that you can find right here at extremeterrain.com.

      Flutter Eliminator

      Excellent hood latches, eliminated hood flutter, quality product and looks great. Highly recommend this product. Installation took longer than expected, but removing fender liners made it easier to get to the bottom nut. Time was about an hour and a half.

      High quality alternative

      This product is a more durable, solid and high quality alternative to the stock hood latch which has the tendency to fade (gray) and the hood shake under certain conditions. I removed the grill which helped the install.

      These work as advertised and look nice, although a little larger than I had imagined. Even with my old, arthritic fingers I managed to get the nuts and washers started in there, just barely!

      Great Replacement to OEM

      This product is well worth the expense to eliminate the hood flutter. It is easy enough to install, just make sure you have 10mm and 13mm sockets available. One side was a little tighter where the two pieces meet than the other on the upper latch, and it as signs of visible wear on the inside finish (not visible from the outside) when latching and unlatching thus the 4-star fit rating. Other than that I am really pleased with the result and look.

      Don't fit 17 Rubicon

      The install was easy and straight forward but they don't fit inside the indention on the hood for the latch they are rubbing the paint off. I've tried to adjust them but nothing is working. I will pull them off.

      It was a simple upgrade to those stock rubber hood catch. Could not stand how the hood would lift and rattle at highway speeds. These good looking hood catch are an easy upgrade anyone can and should do. Time to install, less than 20 minutes.
