Drew...front end is all metal no fiberglass anywhere in my truck. Front end is very heavy and i wanted to make sure the actuators held. I used 2 x 850lb actuators. Overkill probably but i did not want it to have any trouble holding or pushing it. I searched for the best ones i can find and landed on this company. Linear Actuators | Quality DC Actuators by Progressive Automations . Very high quality actuators.
