Has your hood been fluttering? Original hood catches degrade and fail and most aftermarket hood catches look spindly. These adjustable, durable, and aesthetically pleasing aluminum hood catches are proportional to the vehicle and offer a direct fit.
Your Jeep is known for its compelling performance and iconic design. Put simply, when you are ready to kick up some dust or bog through some mud, your Jeep has what it takes both to impress you and to turn heads. Eventually, though, rocky trails and bumpy roads are apt to take some toll on your machine’s body and fixtures. A rattling hood won’t only drive you crazy, but it may also damage paint and body panels. Fortunately, you do not have to put up with a hood that does not latch properly. Here at 4 Wheel Parts, we have high-quality Jeep replacement body parts, including the Rugged Ridge hood catch kit.
Keep Your Hood Firmly in Place
When you need to check on your rig’s motor, you want to be able to easily pop the hood open. After the project is done, though, you expect your Jeep’s hood to stay firmly in place without bouncing, rattling or coming lose. Even though stock hood catches are well-built and durable, they occasionally fail. If yours does, you need a high-quality replacement part. The black hood catch kit from Rugged Ridge is that part. This catch kit is top-grade, ensuring it integrates perfectly with your existing Jeep CJ body parts. The Rugged Ridge latch is made from textured black aluminum and offers factory-style fitment, giving you the perfect look for your off-road rig. Even better, its inner workings allow you to quickly and easily open your vehicle’s hood before securing it tightly and securely. With this catch kit, you say goodbye to hood fluttering forever.
Preserve the Condition and Value of Your Jeep
Many aftermarket hood catch kits focus more on utility than they do on appearance. As such, if you choose one of these kits, you sacrifice your vehicle’s overall aesthetic. The Rugged Ridge black aluminum hood catch gets high marks in both areas. As such, you preserve the condition and value of your machine when you opt for a Rugged Ridge component. At 4 Wheel Parts, we price the components we sell with fairness and your budget in mind. Accordingly, you get a great deal every time you order from us. Check out our selection of hood catches and order one for your Jeep today.
I bought my latches about two years ago. Today one of the pins that holds the latch closed fell out while I was in the backcountry so I had one non functional latch for the road trip back. When I got home I checked the other side and it was loose and ready to pull apart. Check and tighten them up. Probably need lock tight. If I can’t find another pin I’m out more than $100. Maybe I should have replaced the rubber straps.
Use the OEM nuts with some tread lock. Looks good and feels safe after my passenger side catch tore.
Fairly easy installation. They look sharp. I love that my hood isn’t jumping up and down anymore.
They work great and keeps the hood tightened down.
