I don't think any Challenger comes with hood struts. I've heard they aren't there because they get in the way when working on the car from the side. I don't work on mine from the side so I don't know if they do or not. I put mine on and I love them. That prop looks so cheap. The attaching hardware is self tapping and the holes are already there.

All SRT8's come with struts the R/T's don't come with them.

Why wouldn't they put them on the R/T? How much can they possibly cost?
I think they were doing the retro thing by not putting them on the R/T. I can be wrong and Dodge did a cheapo maneuver on the R/T. ????

Measure the cost times how many R/T's are sold/built that can get pretty expensive.
