JK Aluminum Hood Latches

Bolt-On Replacements Are Designed To Outperform Original Hood Latches

Suwanee, Ga. (October 30, 2012) – Rugged Ridge, a leading manufacturer of high-quality Jeep accessories, today announced the release of its all-new billet aluminum Hood Latch Kits for 2007-2013 Jeep® JK Wrangler.

An age-old problem for Jeep owners, factory hood latches degrade over time and fail causing hoods to rattle or even become unsecured while driving. After extensive research and countless hours of testing and evaluation, Rugged Ridge has developed its all-new aluminum Hood Latch Kit to outperform where the original latches fall short. Constructed from high strength aluminum, each Kit features an adjustable tension rod to guarantee a long-lasting, precise fit on any 2007-2013 JK Wrangler.

Available in both stylish silver aluminum and a stealthy black powder coat finish, Rugged Ridge billet aluminum Latch Kits are designed to match the Wrangler’s rugged styling and legendary durability. A simple bolt-on application, installation is performed in minutes by any do-it-yourselfer with just basic hand tools.

“We saw what few options were available for JK owners to replace their stock latches and knew we had to step in. Our goal was to offer Jeep enthusiasts something never before available – a hood latch that is solid, functional and aesthetically pleasing.? said Patrick Bennett, Product Development Manager atOmix-ADA.

Rugged Ridge aluminum Hood Latch Kits are covered by an industry leading five-year limited warranty and are available online and through select Jeep and off-road parts/accessories retailers nationwide, starting at $99.99.
