Today we're gonna be looking at and installing this Rugged Ridge body armor hood guard, fitting your 2007 to 2017 Jeep Wrangler. If your hood already has chips and dents in it or you wanna protect your hood from future damage, this Rugged Ridge hood guard is exactly what you need. Made of durable thermoplastic, this hood guard easily installs on the front of the hood to protect it from chips and dents. It features a nice diamond-plate finish, so today we're gonna install it on our 2016 Jeep Wrangler.

The first thing we're gonna do is open up the hood 'cause we need to remove the top portion of the hood catches. These are aftermarket hood catches but the removal process is still the same for the factory ones. Remove the catch and do the same thing on the passenger side. Place the hood guard on the hood, then you're gonna wanna clean this whole perimeter on the hood with alcohol because the hood guard applies wit 3M tape. You need to make sure the surface is nice and clean so this can stick, so we're gonna clean this whole area with alcohol. Use a paper towel or a rag with some alcohol and then wipe it clean. Peel the backing off the 3M tape. Once you have it peeled, place it on the hood and then hold it there. Then hold it there for 30 seconds and make sure the tape stays in place. Once you have the hood guard in place, you can reinstall the top of the catches, and your installation's finished.

Our Rugged Ridge hood guard is installed. It'll keep the front of our hood nice and protected, and it gives it a nice rugged look too. Installation's super easy, it should only take about 5 or 10 minutes and before you know it, you'll be heading off-road.
