Got mine today. They lifted mine from ground to inside handle at 87 1/2". I cant believe that it raised it that much. Robert, mine are the same ones. I AM NOW IN THE BLUE LABEL CLUB TOO!!!!!!

I dont know what these are rated at but, if you arent ready and you let go of the hatch, it will shoot up to the max height pretty fast. They definately fee a ton stronger that the worn out stockers.

In a way that's kind of good. As they get older and lose some of their strength, they should still be able to support the liftgate. I'm thinking because of that added strength, they may last much longer than stock replacements before the lift starts to appear too weak (in the cold especially) to hold the liftgate up.

Just ordered myself a set! Dude, my old ones died so fast it was crazy! I literally went on a trip and came home to my truck and all the sudden, it did not lift AT ALL! There was ZERO warning. Since I travel a lot and use my truck a lot as well to move things, I appreciate the idea of getting more lift! Yahoo! Good deal too! I paid $48.79 shipped to my door.

Received mine yesterday and installed them this morning. Thank you so much for posting this info. Looks like I owe another FTE member a beer again....what a huge improvment for my Ex.

P.S. Wow - is that back hatch heavy when you take off the old lift supports!

Surprising, huh? It looks like just a bit of fiberglass and glass, but that thing has serious weight!
