    Lol! The only use I'd get out of it is as a ledge to step on when cleaning the roof. The door sills sit a little too far inward, so in order for me to clean the roof, I have to stand on the door sill...

    Hood struts are nice and all, but a "must-have"? More of a nicety IMO. Nice to know they're generally easy to install, though.
