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 feature a carbon fiber appearance to give your engine bay race inspired styling.

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 Carbon Fiber 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 gas powered struts, mounting brackets, and all the required mounting hardware.

Fitment: 2005 2006 2007 2008 2009 2010 2011 2012 2013 2014 Details

Why I waited so long to convert over to hood struts from the old prop rod is a mystery. Time? Money? Difficulty? Not sure. I pulled the trigger on the carbon fiber struts, and the finish is top notch. ...

Hood struts for Shelby ? Hi - I have a '08 Shelby Super Snake with the fiberglass hood provided at Shelby. Will these struts work flawlessly with this hood also and require no drilling ? They will go great with my carbon fiber trim parts from Shelby if so ! thanks - Cam

    Why I waited so long to convert over to hood struts from the old prop rod is a mystery. Time? Money? Difficulty? Not sure. I pulled the trigger on the carbon fiber struts, and the finish is top notch. The install makes for a great father son project as it is very simple. They lift my Trucarbon hood without any issues and it lines up perfectly. I would put this on your short list of upgrades.

    carbon fiber gas struts

    Time will tell,the first set I bought for American Muscle was chrome and had rusted with-in two Months on the brackets. I will write another in three Months on weathering of this set.

    Why did I wait so long

    Great product really cleans up under the hood by eliminating the ridiculous hood prop rod. Why Ford thinks its ok to continue to put this on a 30k-40k car is unbelievable. Easy install and it looks great. Don't wait pull the trigger on these today.

    Looks Good

    The carbon fiber prop rods definitely do look good, especially with a black mustang. They were hard to install with one person only though. Lining up the hood with all 3 holes the bolts had to fit in was definitely not fun. Neat installation, but I wish it was cheaper.

    Out with the old... Welcome the New!

    Overall product is great and installation was a breeze! Upgrade that old-tacky hood support stick with these hood struts to show-off your engine bay! I know have my complete engine bay with Carbon Fibers covers.

    The best overlooked bolt on you can get

    So lets start off with opening the box everything was packaged and good to go when i got it the installation was straight forward except i ended up taking off the wrong screws for the bottom bracket easy fix at the end of it all ot was a great add on no more hook just open the hood and let go only bad thing about it was that no one seemed to care about how it looked haha but hey i dont regret this buy
