Jake: Jake here for American Trucks, and in this video I'm taking a look at the WeatherTech Low Profile Hood Protector in Dark Smoke, fitting 2019 and newer Ram 1500s without the Sport Performance hood, also excluding TRX and Rebel models. Adding a hood deflector is one of the best and easiest ways to protect your Ram's paint, and this Low Profile Hood Protector provides a sleek design that looks cool and adds some extra armor to the front end of your truck, all without breaking the bank.WeatherTech has long been one of the go-to brands for interior and exterior protection products, so it only makes sense that their hood deflectors would be appealing. Now, this one in particular gives you plenty of protection and some sleek good looks to go along with it. Now, if you've ever had the misfortune of watching and listening in horror as you see the front end of your truck's hood get peppered with rocks and debris, consider yourself lucky. It is a terrible feeling knowing there is absolutely nothing you could do in that moment to stop the inevitable damage. But there is a way to help prevent it. Enter a hood protector.Now, not all of these are created equal, but they all do, essentially, have the same purpose, and that's to keep rocks and such from pelting the leading edge of your hood. Now, this one from WeatherTech takes a more stealthy approach than the traditional hood protector. As the low profile in its name would imply, this one keeps things pretty subdued. Now, while it does cover the entirety of the leading edge of the hood and then some, it doesn't kick up at the rear like a more typical unit might. It keeps things at very low profile, very slim, and sleek, following the contours of your Ram's hood perfectly. Now, WeatherTech custom fits these to each specific application, so it will follow the lines of your hood exactly, making it look like it could have potentially been an OEM accessory. The dark smoke color here also blends in with any color of paint, giving your truck a cool look as well.The entire thing is made from ABS plastic, meaning that it's flexible, it's durable, and thus it can take plenty of abuse out on the road. It also comes ready to install with the 3M Double Sided Tape already installed on the back. So, this doesn't require you to do any drilling or modifications, but we'll talk more about that in a moment.First, though, let's talk price. Coming in at about $125, this is the least expensive hood protector on the market for this kind of truck. But it doesn't skimp on quality either, so if you want that protection or just the look, this is a great choice that's not going to wreck your budget.As we alluded to a moment ago, installation is going to get an easy one out of three on our difficulty meter, and you can expect the process to take you about 20 minutes or so. Now, this is a peel-and-stick installation with the 3M Double Sided adhesive that you can see here already pre-installed on the back side of it. So, you really just need to make sure that you've cleaned and prepped the hood surface, and that you get it lined up correctly. And here to show you how to get that done is one of our AT customers.Kyle: Hi, I'm Kyle. Today we're installing the WeatherTech Low Profile Hood Protector. What comes with the package is the hood protector, alcohol prep pads, surface prep pads. And what else is needed for the installation is car wash supplies, flint towels, and a masking tape.The first step is to clean off the front part of your hood of where the hood protector is going to be located. So, right now, I just have some car wash supplies. Hold it down. The next step, is to place your hood protector on your hood and mark off the edge with masking tape. The next step, is to put your hood protector aside and wipe down the marked-off areas with masking tape using alcohol prep pads. I give you two prep pads, one for one side, and one for the other. The next step after you wait for the alcohol to dry is to use the surface prep pads on the marked-off area with the masking tape. Next step, is to prep your hood protector with the tape on the back of the hood protector. I'm gonna fall back about 2 inches of the tape liner to create hole tabs for when you put it back on. The next step is to remove the masking tape where you're marked off the area for the hood protector. Next step, is to put the hood protector on your hood. Pull tabs out, careful. Place it where you want it to be and look. Next step, is to remove the pull tabs while firmly pressing down on the fit protector, going from inside out. Final step, is to remove the film of the front, after firmly, pressing down on all the edges.Jake: That's gonna wrap things up here for our review and install of the WeatherTech Low Profile Hood Protector in Dark Smoke, fitting 2019 and newer Ram 1500s. Thanks so much for watching, and as always for all things Ram, be sure to keep it right here at americantrucks.com.
