Each Body Armor piece provides paint protection for your Jeep while up-dating the look of your Jeep. All attach with durable 3M automotive grade tape to ensure long term adhesion. The Front hood guard attaches to factory mounting points under the hood as well as with 3M Automotive grade tape. All are available in complete kits for the ultimate look!
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.

Hello John, The Rugged Ridge Body Armor Hood Guard attaches with 3M tape. All you need to do is prep the hood with rubbing alcohol to remove any wax and press it down. Thanks for the inquiry.

Does this product deflect bugs or is it used to specifically protect paint?

the tape 3m for this product...does dangerous for my paint car if i release this product
Asked by Dave from Montreal, Qc on
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.
