When I scout places to go fishing I would like to be able to throw in a line and sit on my hood, but they are easily dented. May sound a little ridiculous, but those little things like this are what make me love wranglers. Jk unlimited stock hood

The aftermarket hoods are stiffer but it depends on how much weight you really want to put on the front of the hood. There is even a carbon fiber model available.

Not looking to put a lot on it. Just enough to sit near the edge without denting it. If there was a hood that could do it at a reasonable price ide be ok with that. Any hoods in mind?

The hood is designed to fold in a collision. Keep that in mind if you mod it.

A folding chair is 10 bucks. Modding your hood or buying a new one will be slightly more than that plus your just going to scratch the piss out of the hood sitting on it. I be more inclined to sit on the front bumper (if you are still stock it looks fairly deep in the center). If you have an aftermarket front bumper a smart guy with a welder could easily fab up a small fold out stool.

I agree but ide have to do some serious work to make it a danger in a accident
Not if it hops the hinges and goes through the A-pillar.

Personally I've found the bumper is the perfect height to sit at, but depending on winch locations that might not work.

?? Grizzstang got the answer.....I got 7 grandkids, and I would be furious if I caught them climbing around my Jeep, especially on the hood.....You got the right idea, get thru the woods, check out some fishing holes, but throw a cheep chair in the back of the rig, the ones with a beer holder in it!...You'll scratch the crap out of the hood sitting on it, besides creasing it while casting and moving around. Find a nice spot in the middle of nowhere, grab your cheap chair, and relax....Or do what I do, and wade in the water!

I used 2 pieces of 1x1 angle iron run along the factory hood support on the inside and pop riveted from the top. I crawl all over my jeep and put my doors and jacks and tools and whatever else up there so that was my solution. This is on a yj though so idk how the jk hoods are setup or would hold up to this solution.

ha, funny I used to be able to stand on my yj,s hood and sit on my TJ's hood. I think the Jk has a hood made of tinfoil :rolleyes:
Yep!, and in 2018 it will be aluminum foil... ;)
