Product Overview:

Replace the factory hood prop rod in your 66-77 Ford Bronco with Wild Horses "Shox N The Hood" hydraulic hood shocks for early Bronco. These hood struts are one of the best upgrades you can perform on your classic Ford Bronco. Opening the hood using the stock steel rod is a pain and working around the hood prop isn't any better. These hood shocks mount to the side of your early Bronco's hood, so they are out of the way for most engine projects.

Early Bronco Hood Shocks

Replace the factory hood prop rod in your 66-77 Ford Bronco with Wild Horses "Shox N The Hood" hydraulic hood shocks for early Bronco. These hood struts are one of the best upgrades you can perform on your classic Ford Bronco. Opening the hood using the stock steel rod is a pain and working around the hood prop isn't any better. These hood shocks mount to the side of your early Bronco's hood, so they are out of the way for most engine projects.

Once you pop the hood and release the safety latch, just give the hood a little lift and our hood shocks will do the rest. Our Shox N The Hood are perfectly balanced to provide a nice, smooth opening for your hood.

This hood prop kit is available for stock steel hoods or Wild Horses deluxe fiberglass hoods. They can also be used on non-deluxe Wild Horses hoods, but will require you to create a mounting location for them in this case. Brackets, hood shocks, installation hardware and instructions are included with these kits.

Used on my steel hood. These things take about 5 minutes to install and work incredibly well. I will always install these on any Broncos that I work on.

I purchased this product a couple of years ago, but did not install them until this weekend. Boy, what a big difference! My prop rod was bent prop rod that would get stuck and be difficult to remove from the hole in my steel hood. Easy to install, just follow the directions and take your time, especially when attaching the hood brackets.

So far so good. I saw some horror stories about the hood bending or kinking w these but the shocks seems perfectly tuned for just the right amount of hold force yet easily come down. Only thing I didn't like was the screws used to install the bracket to the hood. I replaced them w stainless steel pan head bolts. There is enough room to fit a wrench in the hole in the hood to tighten the bolt.

Works great, very easy to install. Definitely makes opening the steel hood on my '76 that much easier. Love WH for all my parts.

Received these hood shox from my wonderful wife as a gift. Got them installed and find that they are one of the best improvements I have made on my 74' bronco. No more messing with the support rod, these things work great!

Gotta say I had my doubts that these shocks would handle the heavy steel hood on my 69 Bronco, but they work perfectly, and I have no hesitation now in recommending them to any classic Bronco owner. A quick and easy install, and my fears of that heavy hood falling while I'm under it are gone. Delivery was fast, installation directions precise, and I'm delighted with the performance/function.

I had to order these, my hood was way too tall for me to put the original stick in and I always had to use a step stool, this was an added relief. Also I was always afraid the wind would catch the hood, so nice not to worry anymore.

Great fit. Extremely easy to install. These shocks are a must. Its nice to be able to raise the hood with a finger and the safety piece of mind of not having to worry about the hood close on your head more than pays for these. They look great to boot;-)

I like the design stronger than others but the brackets do not fit very well. The top part need to be at a right angle and even loose fit the bottom part does not come in contact with the fender. So after rebending the bracket and repainting I got to work as intended. But I should have to do any work, when I receive a product.

I had hesitated in getting these, viewing them as superfluous. Broke down and got them when I had problems with my prop rod. I LOVE THESE! Really great upgrade and super easy to install, with good instructions.

If you're modernizing your Bronco this is a product you shouldn't forget! It's great to just unlatch your hood and open it with one hand. I left my hood prop rod in place so I could use it if I wanted to.
