It looks like a very nice kit. But it limits opening the hood all the way, I don't even use the rod. I just lean it all the way back so I get full access to the inside.
Your hands deserve this for sure you can invite your friends to join you, good luck!I feel I deserve these struts as being a first time Wrangler owner, I opened my hood on the first day to admire the engine. Expecting the non existent struts to do their thing, I lifted the hood and gazed at the engine in all its glory. The hood then fell, cutting off both of my hands. I have since had my hands reattached, but still, I deserve these struts.
BTW none of that was true. Except the last part.
