Heavy Duty Rugged Design Manufactured With Craftmanship And Quality In Mind

Don't let your factory prop rod distract from all that power you've packed under the hood. Give your engine bay a clean, custom look with MRT Hood Struts for the 2011-2019 Ford Explorer, featuring the Original, "No Drill" design. Unlike other Hood Strut Kits in the aftermarket, this MRT handcrafted kit requires NO DRILLING for installation, meaning no holes drilled ANYWHERE. MRT Hood Struts easily install in 20 minutes or less from start to finish.

These hood struts are designed to work with the factory OE hood and to reuse existing factory hood attachment points - No drilling required! MRT hood strut brackets are made out of high-quality steel for the utmost durability and come standard with a quality Black Powder Coat Finish or 2 custom finish options -- carbon fiber look and factory paint code.

*** Note: MRT will use factory paint code and formula to paint custom brackets. There is no guarantee of exact match due to vehicle age, sun exposure, etc. ***

Application: All 2011-2019 Ford Explorer OE Factory Hood
Doesn't Fit: Aftermarket hoods - call MRT for proper gas strut sizing (you provide hood weight!)

5 of 5 Great Product - Instructions Need Updating August 9, 2021
Reviewed by: Damian from Texas  
I just installed this kit on my 2017 Explorer Sport.  Overall, great product and high quality.  Everything works perfectly.  The instructions are a little off, as we had to modify the install slightly.  The two bolts and nuts that came with the kit are not quite large enough to secure to the mounting hole, so we added an additional washer to ensure the nut was secured.  We also had to trim off a piece of the trim plastic that got used by the mounting bolts. Not a big deal, but helpful to know up front.
