Suwanee, Ga. (June 20, 2013) – Following the successful debut of Rugged Ridge’s billet aluminum hood catches for 2007-2013 Jeep® JK Wranglers at the 2012 SEMA Show in Las Vegas, the company today announced the availability of hood catches for 1997 – 2006 TJ Wranglers.
The Rugged Ridge aluminum Hood Catch Kits for TJ Wranglers are built as a strong direct replacement for the OE catches that degrade and fail after years of off-road abuse. Built in the same black powder-coated finish as Rugged Ridge’s earlier JK kit, the TJ kit also incorporates an adjustable tension rod guaranteeing a precise fit. As with the JK kit, installation is a breeze for any do-it-yourselfer with just basic hand tools; the catches were designed to be a bolt-on solution using the same mounting points as the factory hardware.
"We’ve had a tremendously positive response for our JK hood catches and it was only natural that we offer these for the previous generation Wrangler as well,” said Patrick Bennett, Product Development Manager at Omix-ADA. “Something like 70 percent of Jeeps that were ever sold remain on the roads today. With the TJ in particular, many of these Jeeps are on the second and third owners, and owners are starting to either replace worn parts or upgrade components for more demanding off-road work. Our new hood catches fill both needs perfectly.”
Each Rugged Ridge Hood Catch Kit is covered by an industry-leading five-year limited warranty and is available online and through select Jeep and off-road parts/accessories retailers nationwide, starting at $99.99.
