Comments about Rugged Ridge Body Armor Hood Guard:

When checking placement before peeling the tape, the holes on the sides that go under the hood hold downs, had to be drilled larger as they wouldn't reach as they should have, when tape was peeled and ready to apply, one end stuck before it was ready and it cracked ever so slightly when trying to get the tape back up off of the hood. Now its been on for a week and the tape is beginning to fail and it is lifting off of the hood on its own, when it is supposed to lay flat to the hood. The look of it is great, that's why I bought this particular one but the fit wasn't the best and since the tape is failing to keep it tight to the hood, I feel I will be replacing it with something else very soon.

      The 3M tape is specifically designed for automotive paint and it will not harm the paint when you remove the product. It is a very tight bond to the surface of the paint and it will hold the Rugged Ridge Body Armor Hood Guard to the vehicle very firmly so removal of the tape is difficult, but if you take your time it will come off without damage. Please let us know if you have any other questions, thanks.
