nice and clean looking kit, seems simple to install. I just don't plan to open the hood all that often, not sure what I'd want to do in there, don't think I'll ever buy this kit. I doubt I've opened the hood on my Taco more than once a year, if that. What do you all plan to do underneath there to make this prop stick a problem?

I'll look in there at delivery and my son will probably look in there once I get it home, that's about what I plan to do in there. Had to replace light bulbs on my Taco a couple of times, don't expect my LEDs to burn out before I do.

To me this seems like a solution in search of a problem, really don't know why I'd want to fiddle around under the hood, ever. Just curious why you'd need to open it that often that the prop stick becomes a real problem?

Agree with daktari
Nice solution but with these new vehicles no one really spends time under hood.
And their is a thread I believe on how ugly the new engine bays look, so again no reason to open hood more than once a year to clean

Oil change guys can use prop post

This was the gateway drug. After i put my order in, now I'm ready to upgrade my bronco with another purchase of the next thing, and i don't even own it yet. I did have the Analog HD 1552's on order, but decided to cancel and just go with Sasquatch.

Nice. Def gonna consider these, maybe by the time I get my Bronco they will be in stock again haha.
Redline must have finally gotten their act together. When I had a 17 Explorer, I wanted a set of these. By the time they got them on the shelf, I was ready to trade the the Explorer for a Raptor and never bought them.

I guess I don’t super understand the point. Bronco engine bay is not attractive to look at/display, and the prop rod is more than sufficient for maintenance/mechanical work from what I’ve seen

Received mine today (ordered on the 23rd), and 20 minutes later had them installed. Hardest part was pulling out the clips for the wiring harness which gets in the way when reinstalling the bolt & bracket.

I know some people were worried about the struts being able to fully close the hood so do it fully close the hood?

Hood closes smoothly, no issues whatsoever.

Until you actually work on something and it's in the way. It gets in the way, believe me. It's kinda like if you ever played pool at someone's house that installed a table in too small of a basement, and they have that one pole that blocks like half the shots, lol.

Edit: I'm so glad mine are showing up tomorrow, for the Bronco that I don't even have a VIN for yet. Oh well, at least I'll get to install the set for my FJ40.
