After so much mud, you just get used to looking at a brown tinted engine compartment... and brown/black arms when working in there.

those of you with mud caked on there for more than a couple months, good luck getting it off... You'd be good to SOAK it in GUNK foaming and pressure wash it hard, but even then i doubt it would get fully clean.

Those are called hood struts. You can probably get the kit on ebay, and you can also get them at a JY. My neighbors jetta has them, and they are the bomb! I'll definitely be putting some on my next ranger.
