Jeep: Rampage Products Hood Lock Review

Rampage Products Hood Lock

I installed the Rampage Products Locking Hood Catch Set on both my jeeps and had problems with both. The manufaturing of these are not very good. The first pair had a good set and another set that was not threaded right. The nut would not spin on the bolt correctly, but after tons of hard work it went on. The nut was actually postitioning the thread on the bolt differently with each turn. Then I went to install them on my second jeep. I had the same exact problem with one good set and one set not threaded correctly. However this time it caused me to scratch the paint off my jeep, as you see above. I had to push so hard that the metal dug into my jeep. They have some rubber in between the metal and the paint, but the rubber is not long enough to reach the bottom. Another problem with the Rampage Products hood locks are the keys. I don’t know if they make the exact same for all their locks, but I can tell you they sent me 4 locking mechinisms and 8 keys, and all 8 keys were exactly the same. Any key could open and locks on both my jeeps. So, in conclusion they don’t seem to vary their keys and I now have to go put touch up paint on my new 2012 Jeep. I’m not very happy.
