I've been thinking about doing the same thing, my hood prop is a pile of &*$# and this is what I've been thinking of doing, on the cheap: take two struts off the hatch of a corolla station wagon in the yard. they're designed to hold the hatch (probably heavier that the hood) up horizontally. They're pretty tough.

Just a thought. :cool:

Thanks. I'll look in some junk yards. Hard to believe nobody has made this mod. seems so simple and much better than the prop stick. My tundra has the struts.
