Our new internal hood release is a great upgrade to your Bronco this will secure your engine and help prevent someone from stealing it. We know how much Broncos are going for these days, so securing them is even more important than ever. This brand new polished billet aluminum design incorporates the cable mounting and safety built in. This will give you more room to add extra coolers, fans or ac condenser and clean up the grill area. We designed this piece to have all of the mounting, cable mount and spring completely contained within the one piece.
To make sure that even if the pivot pin were to come loose it could not come out or release the hood, we also use a ultra strong stainless steel bolt rated at 65,000 psi. We also designed the mechanism so the spring is not visible. From the front of the Bronco.
The cable is mounted in the dash using parts that look stock, if you removed a stock switch you could reuse that hole or drill a new one. The kit comes with the mechanism, cable, bezel, knob with removable insert and stainless steel hardware.

When the hood spring and bumpers are adjusted correctly the pull is very easy, only 18lbs.
We tested it using a fish scale.

How far does the knob pull out...I no longer use the auxiliary tank switch, but have a roll bar kinda in the way.
