I have the Redlines - but GET the PLUS version. It gives you Waaaay more lift than the regular one.
I probably would have, but I got the standard lift height. I often have to work under an E-Z-Up canopy, and it didn’t look like I’d have enough clearance with the high-lift struts.

Either way, very satisfied with the Redlines. It’s SO easy to pop the hood with one hand, even easier than my F150’s hood with factory struts!

I loathe air springs. I hate them with a passion. My RV uses them on all the storage doors, My IKEA cabinets in the laundry room use them. They all lose lift after a year or two max.
But you guys do you. Me I am going to be happy with Ford's solution.

I did the Redline which took all of maybe 30 minutes to install, no cutting or moving anything, still haven't removed the prop rod yet...lol.

I look at them the same as tires and brakes, they will wear out eventually and you replace them for new ones. They are worth the advantages and convenience they provide over the factory prop rod.

I bought Redline and parts don’t fit in hood. I regret the decision and pretty annoyed at the moment…. I ordered them early and finally had a chance to install this weekend. Total fail.

Asking myself why I have to grind down a part and/or file away at the hood to make it work…. Total crap

You get what you pay for. Our system is MADE IN THE USA with either 4 or 5 year warranty and our customer support will take care of any issues!

Free shipping in the CON. U.S. on all Bronco systems using coupon code "Bronco6G" at checkout.

We offer two different lift heights for the Bronco. Our standard QuickLIFT system raises your hood to the same height as the factory Prop Rod and our Max Lift system raises the hood 8 inches higher for maximum access to the engine compartment. Both systems are available in PLUS, Carbon and ELITE versions as shown below. There is no functional difference between PLUS, Carbon and ELITE, it's only the finish of the gas spring. That being said the Max LIFT PLUS is out most popular system.

Indeed issue resolved. 5/5 stars on redline product and service response. This was bad luck with early kit combined with my limited time to fix.

I fully recommend the redline struts now.

Stay away from Rough Country. The lift points aren't in the greatest place. The washers you have to use are terrible, and in my case their kit actually caused damaged to my hood.
i used rc and it works great maybe u installed wrong
