Yeah, I have one. It's hanging on my garage wall.
I also have the original black one hanging there too.

Never could understand going with those "doomed to fail" gas struts. Nothing beats a prop rod for fool proof operation every time.

Installed over 10 years ago from California Pony my gas struts still holding up my hood. Like me, a little sag when leaving the hood open over night...

To the OP:
Make sure it's stainless steel rather than chromed steel.

Mine didn't have a hood prop, but I do have brand new Redline struts as a back up. The prop is supposed to be stainless...

Maybe the '08's were stainless? My original (bought the car new) hood prop is painted black. Not painted by me.

The original on the 08s were also black, just like your.

Stainless or Chrome is aftermarket.

Sorry, I failed to mention that it is aftermarket. 3670 is used, if it had a prop, mine was missing...

I assume a "sawed off" broom handle would also be considered Aftermarket? I remember a time in the past, I used one of those Aftermarket hood props. Just kept it in the trunk until I needed it. Just had to worry about losing it if it fell through the rust holes in the trunk. "Those were the days........NOT"

I’ve been looking into getting these through American Muscle. They have a black Ford Performance etched style I like.
