2016 E450 Hood Lift Supports / Struts

Hello,

I want to add a couple of struts to assist in lifting and holding the hood on my E450 but I'll be dipped in chocolate if I can find such a thing. I see plenty of F450 parts for this, but not E parts.

I'm thinking the struts for the F series would work, but there's no obvious mount point for the E450.

This was an easy peazy project for my Wrangler, but I'm striking out on this one.

Has anyone done this on an E450 or has any knowledge or helpful advice? Thanks in advance.

I would contact a company that specializes in struts and give them your needs. They should be able to tell you the length and pounds rating.

I know you mean well

The issue isn't whether I can find struts strong enough, it's the obvious lack of mount points and blatant lack of consideration for them in the design.

Struts can be mounted front to back or back to front but there is no provisions at all for this on the frame or hood, no particular demarcation. So I'll have to repro a similar rig and adjust the length accordingly.
