Mine opens all the way... Then falls about a foot. Waiting on dealer for new struts...kramer wrote:I'm 6' tall and I have to duck a little to get under the hatch when its fully open... which is incredibly stupid. Im wondering if its just mine, or if all of them barely open beyond 90 degrees?
I also have to buy new hatch struts because they're not holding the thing open... so I thought maybe there's something longer out there to let it open further?

I took a look at the McMaster-Carr site per the Xterra folks, but not sure what strut to order. I measured the stock struts - 19 1/4"L extended, 13 3/4"L closed (5 1/2" stroke)...and I'm not seeing anything close to that. Any suggestions??
Guess I'm going to delve into the WWW to see what else I can find...
