Rugged Ridge hood armor installed....

Got my Rugged Ridge plastic hood armor on today. Fitment was pretty bad at first but once it sat in the sun I got it to set flat, sort of. It goes on with 3M double sided foam tape but it also get bolted on through the latches on either side of the hood. Which I had to hog out those holes with my dremel tool almost slotting them to get the latch to line back up and be able to bolt on. But oh well, ill give it a few weeks and see how I feel about it.

Looks pretty good. Was wondering what that diamond plate actually looked like on a hood instead of the ad photos

It does look pretty decent on there..... it did however raise the hood 1/8-1/4in because the lip of the armor sits on the rubber lip the usually seals against the hood
