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.
It works. I have two Broncos with hood struts, these struts work fine abs do the job. The other set is a little better in that the nipple that screws into the hood on this set is a small bolt, when used yoy can see it flex the metal. The other set had a large washer/bolt combo in one piece that when used seems to not flex the hood. These seem solid and we will see how it goes. Otherwise solid set up. Good directions.
These hood struts worked out great. Can’t beat the price point these either! Highly recommended for your Bronco!
Easy to install and works as intended.
I like it overall, works as advertised. My main concern is the top mounting method for the struts. A small piece of metal hooks into the hood but it’s a bit finicky. The bottom mounts and struts themselves seem good.
Every Bronco should have hood struts. This is an easy way to have a part every Bronco should have but doesn’t come with. Installation is quick and easy.
The instructions indicate a 12mm socket wren h when it requires a 13mm socket wrench. The video installation is way better than the enclosed instructions. Throw them away once you open it and go straight to the video! It will save you a bunch of time and eliminate any confusion.
I will not have my Bronco until early April will be glad to update then.
