Unscrew it from the console, take off the cover, wrap it in whatever, put it all back together. My 16 year old did his after watching me do mine.You guys that did the Center Arm Rest Cover, would you happen to have a step by step of the process?
Or is it fairly obvious once you take it off?
I have been wanting to do this for awhile now. My dog's nails scratch it up like cutting butter.

What struts did you use?Katana headlights, or hood struts, or vent shades, or led switchback front turns, or led tail/brake lights
I don't hate them in an OEM application since I can at least run to the store and get new ones when needed. they usually fail slow enough to not just drop the hood down on you when you're under it. however I do appreciate that the rod won't drop the hood ever. I just don't like that the aftermarket strut kits are not using a standard part so I can't go to the store for a replacement. I guess most people don't keep their trucks long enough for it to matter and those who like the struts enough will just buy another $60 kit or call them up and see if they can buy some new struts only for a bit less than the kit.^^^ Agreed. All the heat under the hood will contribute to the eventual failure of the struts - and a hood coming down. Head and/or fingers?
Or the buffoon tailgating with his brights on.Bought some flood lights off Amazon for $70 with a wiring harness and clamps. Faced them backwards on my roof rack. Best thing ever, super nice to hook up the trailer in the dark or just backing down a driveway or trail in the dark.
Once you have it you can replace the pistons easily. Just match them up online or at a parts store by measurement and end angle.It's funny the opinions on prop rods. Personally I prefer the prop rod as it's simple and works. The struts will eventually stop working and since the ORG kit is custom made, you will be forced to buy another kit from them since you can't get anything off the shelf. Maybe not a problem for some, but I'd rather just have the rod that can't fail. I do wish it held the hood up a bit higher, but oh well.
