    Bought a pair of these for a 2002 and a 2004 Jeep Grand Cherokee hood installation. Installed in about 15 minutes per vehicle. Supports look well built, beefier than the OEM units I removed and hoping they last longer. I was impressed enough with them when I opened the package after it arrived at home, I ordered another pair and picked them up at the store a few weeks later. Now I don't need a board to keep the hood open on my Jeeps.

      Comments about Strong Arm Lift Support:

      When opening the hood of my 2003 Jeep I need a stick to support it. I was looking for lift supports online and found these at my locate parts store for a reasonable price. The great thing about them was they were easy to install and I could throw away the stick.

        Comments about Strong Arm Lift Support:

        Could not get my niece's rear hatch to open ... finally found the hidden lock switch to open the hatch and learned quickly that the original supports were shot. Once I had the hatch safely propped open the supports were a breeze to install. You will need a torx bit for uninstall of the old ones and install of the new ones. Now my niece is happy to use the hatch instead of folding down the rear seats for access.

                  The previous lift supports would only raise the hood to about mid-forehead level. I only needed to replace one of the two supports to get it working full range.
