Description
Prop Rod? Are you still using that old style factory prop rod that Ford installed in your S197 Mustang? Well then join the new millennium with a set of Modern Muscle Design Hood Struts from AmericanMuscle for clean modern looks and convenience.

Style And Strength. Designed to get rid of that old ugly prop rod, this set of two powerful yet sleek MMD gas struts not only makes opening your Pony's hood much easier, but also holds it securely in place. Made from lightweight steel and aluminum, they have a chrome and nickel plated finish to give your engine bay a much cleaner appearance.

No Drilling Required. The stamped steel brackets included in this MMD kit are designed to bolt into the existing mounting holes in the hood so there is no drilling required for installation. Struts can be installed on factory hoods as well as aftermarket hoods that use the factory bolt location. If your aftermarket hood is lighter than the factory hood, use caution when opening the hood due to the power of the strut.

Application. This Modern Muscle Design Hood Strut Kit is specifically designed for use on the 2005 to 2014 Ford Mustangs, including the V6, GT, Bullitt, BOSS, and Shelby GT500 models. The Kit includes two chrome gas powered struts, mounting brackets, and all the required mounting hardware.

Should be a factory item!

Installation took about 45 minutes due to extra time protecting the hood from possibly sliding onto the cowl. I stuffed a large towel under the corners to ensure no paint damage in case the hood slipped.

Title is ok

The install was pretty straight forward but they forgot to tell you to take out the little clips on each of the ball connectors of the shock absorbers! Once you do that it its easy. Works great, Don't

    Should be a factory item!

    May 08, 2012

    Installation took about 45 minutes due to extra time protecting the hood from possibly sliding onto the cowl. I stuffed a large towel under the corners to ensure no paint damage in case the hood slipped. Everything went on smoothly as per the instructions and the chrome version looks fantastic on my silver 5.0. The pivot balls go on extremely easy if you remove the tiny C-spring first then install it afterwards. Be sure to apply a dab of grease inside the balls for lubrication as they are dry from the factory. This is a "Must Have" item for any Mustang.

    The install was pretty straight forward but they forgot to tell you to take out the little clips on each of the ball connectors of the shock absorbers! Once you do that it its easy. Works great, Don't have any idea Why Ford doesn't put them on at the factory and if they had to charge another 100.00 bucks the Eye appeal alone would would be worth that It gets you away from the model A look to the 21ST century!!

    LOOKS GREAT AND FUCTIONAL

    December 30, 2012

    It is nice getting that hood prop out of the way. Plus, these allow the hood to open even higher, which is nice as I am 6'3". When installng on the 2013 GT, just pay attention to the instructions for the sound tube detour, and also use a bit of comon sense for the windshiled washer tubes. I am a Neanderthal, so if I can figure it out, so can you!!! After I installed I tested the windshield washers, and they both worked beautifully...

    MMD install on 2013 MCA Mustang

    September 14, 2012

    This hood strut kit really cleans up the overall look to your engine compartment and does away with the factory prop rod. I reversed the lower brackets from the way they were marked and found that they remained in place better. One of my struts had a bad thread size and would not hold. AM replaced this and all is well. Improvements could be made in the hood brackets by having holes for the fasteners to plug into for the windshild washer hose and the sensor wire for the hood position.

    The Hood Struts are a great upgrade over the prop rod

    May 17, 2012

    Installation is relatively simple, but you need to remove the catch pins on the struts, they slide down, in order to "pop" the strut onto the brackets. This info should be included in the installation instructions. Once done you will be quite pleased with the results, looks, and the ease in opening the hood.

    MMD Bolt On Hood Strut Kit - Chrome

    March 23, 2012

    Upon receiving my Hood Strut Kit .. for my 2012 Mustang GT...It took just under 30 Minutes to install. The simplicity of installation provided, takes BARNEY Style installation to a whole new level. So very easy! The great thing is it work better than the old spring loaded type from earlier models in the 60's etc. And best of all it looks just like it came from the factory installed. What a great way to display the engine without the OEM factory Prop-Rod!!! Now my wife can open the hood with ease, and no more excuses for not checking the oil! Great Product!!!
