    Specs. Rugged Ridge offers this Hood Lift Shock, Service Unit as a replacement part for one of the gas shocks that makes up their gas-charged hood lift kit (Rugged Ridge 11252.51) for recent Wranglers. If one of the gas shocks breaks, you don't need to buy a whole new kit to get just one part. This Hood Lift Shock is a high quality replacement for this individual part of the gas-charged setup. Restore your lift quickly to give yourself easy access to your Jeep's engine.

    Construction. The Hood Lift Shock, Service Unit is manufactured out of steel by Rugged Ridge. A black finish prevents rust on the outer surfaces. This shock is a replacement part for a larger hood lift kit, Rugged Ridge 11252.51. This part is manufactured to high standards and represents an upgrade over the clumsy factory prop rod. This Rugged Ridge part comes with a standard 5 year limited warranty.

    Application. Fits 2007-2018 Wrangler JK models.

            They work

            Expensive for what they are, but the fit and work as they should.

            Good as NEW!!!

            I broke one of the shocks on the original kit that was working great...the hardest part was installing the original brackets. When this one broke (while trying to do a mod that required me to remove the hood - my fault), I just ordered this one, popped the other one off and snapped this on in its place onto the original brackets - good as NEW!!!!

            Good but kind of pricey

            I installed the hood lift kit, but later on added a Hi Lift on my hood. The whole lift kit still worked fine and was able to operate as normal, but the shock on the side with the jack's running gear started sagging pretty bad after a few months. This replaced it with no issues, however its a little expensive for a single replacement
