These replacement hood catches from Rugged Ridge was built as a strong direct replacement for the OE catches that degrade and fail after years of use. Installation is a breeze for any do-it-yourselfer with basic hand tools; the catches were designed to be a bolt-on solution using the same mounting points as the factory hardware. Includes mounting hardware. Available in black, stainless steel, and chrome finish.
You cannot begin to compare these Rugged Ridge Hood Catches with the OEM ones. They are what should be on the Jeep to begin with. A great product which is worth it's price. My one disappointment was that they are silver painted aluminum instead of a metallic finish. It would also be nice if there was a keyed locking mechanism, but I wouldn't consider this a detractor since the OEM ones are basically just rubber bands. They also require a rubber part that protects the fender from the OEM part.
Love these. Great bang aesthetically for the buck spent.
Very simple to install Great Product
Quality construction and materials. Solid latching feel. Makes the stock latches feel like rubber bands.
these hood latches look awesome on my white 2011 wrangler, after seeing mine my friend bought them also for his wrangler. had them installed in no time. no more hood flutter!
No more hood lift. Easy to install.
They definitely eliminate the hood flutter of the stock catches and are good looking. You need to remove the horn on the left side to access the lower stock catch nut. I found it worked to take my sabre saw and trim away a little of the plastic on the right side and then that nut was easy to access. No need then to remove the grill.
Quick easy install of about 10 minutes, much more durable than stock, (stock broke after 8 years) They fit perfect, they install easy, they do what they say, what more could you ask for.
These hood catches are easily installed, rugged and look nice on my JK! I am glad I choose them as my replacement hood latches! I would highly recommend these to anyone wanting to replace their hood latches!
Jeeps should come standard with this latch
will these fit original factory holes for hood latch? Is there any modification required for them to fit 2015 Wrangler?

It says that they are a factory replacement. So does that mean that they are made of the same rubbery material that can stretch like the factory ones?
