Anyone have the no-drill hydraulic prop rods for the hood?

I see that MRT has some no-drill hood prop rod kits for a reasonable price. I am attracted to them as they do not require drilling holes in the battery cover and passenger fender.
Are these high quality, easy to install and long lasting? Does the hood open far enough to be useful?
Thanks.....

I have them on my 2013, great product and has held up well. With the MRT kit the hood actually is open further than with the stock prop rod, and the rod isn't in the way either, so easier to work on the engine bay with them.

I went ahead and got the Redlines, and they appear to be a lot cleaner install -- and drilling a hole in the side of the battery cover is something that I can live with. Got them from CJ's for a bit more than Amazon, but I'd like to support a supporter, you know?
Thanks for the replies, guys!

Put them on my 2011, twenty minute install. Love the hood opening higher than with the rod.

Easy install on my 13 - as I recall the sound tube bracket had to be moved but no big deal (actually I pulled the sound tube out anyway). I think mine were MMD - they've held up fine for 2 years so far.

I think a lot of people don't realize that the 2015's have a plastic battery cover that requires a hole be drilled through it for the mounting attachment.
They give you a template with the Redlines that makes it easy to locate and drill the hole.
I did it for a friend with a '15 and it was pretty easy.
Sounds like the OP has already ordered and/or received the Redlines.
Good choice.

American Muscle has them.

I got mine from AM and they went on easy with no drilling and work perfect. I think they are MMD but not sure. I got mine about two or three years ago.

Got mine on am and love them . Only problem I've found is the clamp that goes on the fender turns a little side ways . Twisted a head off a nut trying to stop it . Heard some people switching sides with the bracket but for some reason I couldn't get it to work . Lot better than the prop rod

I can't remember who's I put on, maybe CJPony.................they bolted on and I didn't have to even touch the "Sound Tube" mount. They also came in body color which looks kind of factory.
This picture is after I removed the sound tube and installed the Iso-Clutch Reservoir for the clutch.
