        Comments about Strong Arm Lift Support:

        Simple repair for tail gates that are weak to lift or flop down in the cold. One person can do it but it's easier with two. Once one is off the tail gate will come down. Really simple, worth the effort of 15 minutes.

          Comments about Strong Arm Lift Support:

          These were a exact fit and now the lift-gate just jumps up after the latch is pulled! Installed with no problems and both (always install NEW in pairs!) seem to work reasonably well and as they should! I would have given 5 stars but the right side Creaks slightly when it reaches full extension (at the top). Priced right and seem well built they are really welcome after the hatch wouldn't stay open all last winter! If you have a Jeep with a slow or non-functional lift-gate I recommend these lift-supports!

            Throw was slightly longer than the existing ones, but it just meant that I had to remove both existing lifters before I could install the new ones.

                        I ordered online with the option to pick up in my local store. Saved a few extra bucks on a promotional offer and quickly picked up in stock the same evening. Easy to order and great local service. Install was simple and took less than 10 minutes and was perfect replacement fit. My eight year old son did half the work. These new tailgate lifters are strong, but also very smooth to open and close. Tailgate opens like brand new again!!! Great all around product and exactly what I was looking for.

                        • Q:

                          Does the package contain instructions about removing the old struts and installing the replacements? I'm specifically interested in knowing how to release/install the lower end.
                          Thanks!

                            It is price for one. You will need to buy two. Even if only one of the lift gates maybe defective, it is better to replace both at the same time.
