    What brand are those? Looks like they mount at different locations than the ones I've seen around.

    Unfortunately, I purchased the RedLine version of these and had to do a little drilling (a little scary drilling into the hood :wink:).

    The install went without issue and I love the way it worked out, but I didn't think about trying to mount them so that the hood opened further than the prop-rod. Probably could have made that happen, but that's kinda in the past. Any chance that your new struts open the hood further than the prop rod would? Maybe I need to consider an "upgrade" if so o_O

    I’m in Wyoming, as you may have guessed, and I’ve had them in everything.
    They do ok in snow, not as good as a dedicated snow tire, but better than stock. If I was commuting in snow, I’d probably opt for a dedicated snow tire.
    Good off road traction, the one time I’ve gotten stuck in a mud “puddle” so far, 4wd pulled me right out.
    They’re as quiet or better than stock on road, and ride is smooth. Tread wear doesn’t seem to be an issue at this point, I’ve about 5k miles on them, and they still look almost new.

    Interested in finding out what set of "Raptor" LED's that you are using in that grille.

    I wish I had gotten these instead of the redline ones, it sucked having to drill into the truck to install them.

    The one thing that concerns me is with the hood having more leverage against the Skokietech (due to its low connecting point), it may begin to loose support faster than the Redlines due to cold temperature fading or loss of pressure in the strut. But for the almost two for one price difference maybe it doesn't matter?

    If they loose pressure, you just buy some new ones. You can get just the struts for pretty cheap.
