What are Hood Cables?

Hood cables and straps are used to limit the range of motion of the hood when it is opened. Hood cables protect the hood from opening into other parts of the body or overextending the hinges and causing damage. When all components of the hood assembly are working as intended it is easy for one person to open and close the hood without damage or great exertion. This is important for pre-trip inspections and the general wellbeing of the truck. If the hood can easily be opened and the fluids checked, the chances of mechanical damage to the truck due to low oil or coolant is reduced. If opening the hood has become a chore the chances of a driver or even you, opening the hood are much lower and the chances of something preventable going wrong are higher.


Identifying and Replacing Hood Cables

Some hood cables will run through a large hood spring to help slow the opening of the hood and preserve the cables and mounting tabs. Other cables may have the spring assembly built onto one end. The best option for replacing a hood cable is to purchase a replacement using an OEM part number. Due to the various lengths and attachment methods at the ends the options can be overwhelming. Hood cables and straps can be matched up by length, but you will need a known good cable to measure and not the broken one you are trying to replace. Over the life of a cable they can stretch up to an inch over their entire length and when they break it is hard to tell how long they originally were.

  • Length - Measured center to center on cables with eyelets on both ends. If the cable uses attachment methods other than eyelets this may be the total length of the cable alone. Most cables that we carry will have an illustration of where the length was measured from.
  • Eyelet Diameters- The inner diameter of the eyelets will be listed to allow you to confirm that the cable eyelets will fit over the mounting locations on your truck.
  • Clevis mounts – Clevis mounts include the length of the clevis and the diameter of the mounting hole.
  • Special mounts – Some hood cables may include a bracket that directly replaces an existing bracket that holds the cable. The center to center measurement on the mounting holes will be listed for comparison. Hood cables that include brackets will typically have the spring included as part of a complete assembly.

Replacing hood cables can make opening and closing the hood less of a chore and reduce the likelihood of damage from the hood hitting the body or from neglecting to check the oil.
