    They replace the springs with gas struts
    Seems like it would be pretty sweet and better price point than the 800 summit billet versions

    It goes on stock hinges? I like the idea.

    I've been hit over the head by hoods and hatches with failing gas struts, way to many times. I like good old fashion springs.

    They're pretty popular in my area and I see them on trucks regularly. I've asked about 5-6 truck owners that have them and they all seem to really like them. I've considered them for my son's truck build.

    However, I see plenty of 50 year old hood hinges holding up hoods fine. I don't ever think I've seen a hood/trunk strut more than about 10 years that still functions as well as new.
