I installed the trunk strut rod kit I got from PartsRack today. $100

Very easy install.

I pulled off the trunk weather seal by where I drilled the bottom hole so I did damage it with the drill's chuck.

I used a hole saw for the 7/8 inch hole.

The strut does not open the truck or make you have to push it closed, it only holds it up when you lift it up with your hands.

It sure is nice not to have to support the truck with you head.
It also keeps the truck open farther than the prop rod making loading easier.
