Prowler hood

...does anyone have a problem with the hood staying open when you open it up. Can't seem to keep mine open except to bungee it to the bumper to stay open when I'm messing around under the hood.

TBird,does your hood hit the bumper,I know on my 06 when i had the factory bumper on it my hood would open up 3/4 way,and with my new bumper it will still open just a little more than 1/2 way.IT wont close by itself.MAYBE YOUR PARKED UP HILL

my '10 XTZ does the same, It hits the hood stop tabs and may have to "re-engineer" them with the hammer.

That's exactly what mine hits on. Haven't seen anywhere I could adjust the position of the hood either. Let me know what you do to remedy this. I will post if I change anything.

Old Post, but same problem! Finally took a close look at the hood not staying open. I used a crescent wrench to bend the stop tabs. Minor adjustment, but the hood stays open.
