2016 E450 Hood Lift Supports / Struts


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.

Hood is made from composites, no structure support available.

Well those are some heavy damned composites!

I mean, thank you for the quick reply. It appears I'll just have to do it myself.
