Don't know why I just now saw this.

You will love the hood struts. What you need to do if the truck is under warranty. Be sure to remove the original hood prop. Take it to ford to be looked at. The looks on their faces when looking for the hood prop and seeing the struts is classic.

Bad cell pic. But they are on. Wish I had done this a long time ago.




Got them on EBay for 79.00 free shipping.

Current auction number is Item #: 310103196047


Or, Just type the following into Ebays search box.
