Early 2000's Dynasty RRB Gas Strut

Long story short... the gas strut for my rear run bay hatch is now among the debris somewhere on Highway 69 in southern CO. Wondering if anyone with an early 2000's Dynasty can check the weight/force rating of the gas strut on the RRB so I get the right one the first time. The rating is printed on the side of the strut. Thanks in advance.

Do you have one strut or two on that bay door? Mine only has one, it's a 60 lb.

Mine has one strut like Dennis has also but mine says 100 lbs. who knows what is original? Mine does not really feel very strong i am guessing it is old and getting weak.... I would have not guessed it would be 100 lbs but it is.

Mine also just has just one strut. The door isn't very heavy compared to the ones that are insulated. Thanks for checking Dennis, much appreciated!

You got me thinking Rusty that I can pop one of the struts off my basement hatch, which is 100 lbs, and pop it on the RRB. If it wants to send the hatch flying I know to drop it down to 60. Thanks for checking too.

Mine holds the door up, but it's not really very strong.

There you go just make sure you get the correct length you need also!
