No More Prop Rod!

A "must have" mod for anyone who hates a prop rod! The instrutions were easy and watching a video will help. Measure and mark twice, drill once. The drill bit guard was a big help and nice addition. Very happy with this product so far and it's all made in the USA!

Spiker hood struts

I found it to be an easy installation. There are many videos on YouTube and the spiker web site to help you install these awesome "made in America" hood struts. Just help them a bit and your hood goes right up no more fighting with that darn hood rod !! Great product easy install.

Great Buy but please also package screws with the rivets

It was super easy to install on my 2015 Tacoma; It took about 10-15 minutes to install. One thing I was they did would be if they also included screws as well of the rivets because if you mess up the install with the rivets your done for. Id personally use screws to install it incase you ever need to either repair it or replace it. Please also give better instructions on where to properly install them because its clear where to install it on the bottom but the top is a bit confusing.
