Quick Lift Hood Strut (Kit)
While the Raptor may come with hood struts, the rest of the lineup has been left with hood props. This gets the job done, but leaves many wondering if there is a better solution.
That's easy. The answer is yes! This simple to install kit is a modification you get installed and put behind you. You'll get great use out of it especially if you change your own fluids, filters, etc. Also if you're going to be doing a lot of wiring and other work under the hood.
Installation is simple. Use the supplied hardware as noted in our video. Required tools are a ratchet with 1/2" socket and 12mm deep socket (or open ended 12mm wrench).
Easy install so far works great.
Easy to install and makes raising the soft top so much easier.
These things are life savers. I no longer have to stretch and strain my back to use the hood prop. Incredibly strong, if the latch wasn’t there to catch the hood it would fly up as soon as I hit the release. Absolutely worth the investment.
works great, easy to install. My only complaint was with the instructions stating a 12mm socket was needed for the bolt removal when it is actually a 13mm.
