I agree. I just installed the 200lb struts tonight and they're perfect. A light tug, step back and the lift gate opens to full extension.SteveFinn wrote:I just installed 200 lb struts last night (9416K148). I wouldn't go any bigger than the 200 lb struts.

BTW if anyone has installed the airlift 1000 I'd like to know where you mounted the inlet hoses, also if you mounted them on your 7 pin what width did you use. Thanks ahead of times. ONE
Check out Advance. I am looking for some liftgate struts as well and this I probably where I will get them. I've used their struts before on my Grand Cherokee's and they worked well.pandarturo88 wrote: So, I was wondering if anyone know any other companies besides OEM that I can order/go to for this strut.
I placed an order for some this weekend. Most likely the wrong ones, but I'll try them out & post here as soon as they come in.NVSteve wrote:I still can't figure out how powerful of a strut I should get.
I have. There is even a thread on thenewx site that lists parts needed and instructions. Just isn't a big priority for me, otherwise I would have done this mod already. I did see a post recently on that same Xterra forum where someone's hood ended up getting dented because of the gas struts. I don't remember the details as I just glanced at it, but it seems like he installed them the same way as everyone else.volvite wrote: By chance, has anyone thought about adding lifts to the hood?
