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 officially licensed "Mustang" Hood Struts from Modern Muscle Design for modern convenience and impressive under hood styling.

Officially Licensed by Ford. This set of two Modern Muscle Design Hood Struts are officially licensed by Ford and feature the modern "MUSTANG" text in block lettering laser cut out of each mounting bracket, these are not cheap decals that will peel off in a matter of months.

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

'13 & '14 additional requirements I asked a shop to install these, but after the technician ruined my hood installing the CDC Shaker, no one would install them because the instructions say to cut an inch out of some plastic piece and basically move the piece under the plane of the hood. For those of you that installed this on your '13s, did you omit this step?

BlackSunshine73 Year: 2013 Model: GT

  • I did not skip the step I just cut less than 1 inch and check the location then cut the rest. It will be two part once you make the cut. The only difficult portion was putting the screw back on.. I did use the medal insert to install part back to frame. I have a 2013

will hood struts work on a Cervini's hood will these hood struts work on a Cervini's hood? if not, which ones will?

HarleyFitz Year: 2008 Model: GT

  • The hood struts fit the standard hood bolt holes. Beyond that it might be good to check out if the Cervini structure is flexible so that the struts push it up when the hood is closed.

    Kit installs easily - instructions are not complete for 2013 model

    I just installed the hood lift kit and it looks great (really like the MUSTANG letters cut into the brackets!). The kit does exactly what I wanted it to do.....the hood opens a little wider than with the prop rod and is solidly supported when open. The instructions were decent, but there are a couple of things I would add to them: 1. Have someone available to hold the hood open when connecting the struts. The struts are too long when the hood is supported on the prop rod so it helps to have a second person to hold the hood open for you. The struts are very difficult to compress so it worked best to open the hood wide enough that they just clipped in place. 2. On my 2013 model, the upper bracket interferes with a line running from the fender to the hood. There are 2 attachment points on the hood for this line and one of them is directly under the bracket. I had to remove the line and re-route it, but this was not addressed in the instructions. I ended up re-using the upper attachment point and for the lower one, I pushed the clip into one of the letters cut into the bracket. Not sure if this is recommended, but if I didn't attach the lower clip, it looked like this line might get pinched when closing the hood. Overall a great product!

    This product works really good and looks great.

    I only had one problem with these. The bottom brackets would kick out when I closed the hood and wouldn't set flush with the inside fender no matter how much I tighten the bolt. Quick fix was to switch the bottom brackets (right to left ,left to right side) now the brackets stay nice and flush and don't kick out. The hood seems to open and close better too. I haven't had a problem since. Looks great and NO gap between the fender and brackets.

    Good idea

    It took me less then an hour to place the struts on my vehicle. The struts are sturdy and give a little extra to my car when someone is looking at it. I do recommend this product.

    Hood Strut Kit.

    To whom it may concern, I had my friend Steve help me with installing this kit. A few suggestions on installing the kit. 1. review the instructions and place all the parts on the correct side for installing. 2. mark the inside of the hood above and below the bracket on the inside of the hood. Reason, if the hood shifts during the install, there are reference points to realign the hood. I and my friend Steve had to slightly realign the hood on the passenger side. 3. only unbolt one side only. 4. after the brackets are installed correctly, the brackets on the fenders will turn out slightly.

    MMD Hood Struts

    This is an easy bolt-on to dress up the look under the hood and make it easier to work under the hood as well. These have a nice dress-up touch with the word Mustang cut out on one side. In my opinion all Mustangs should have come with hood struts from the factory. They aren't cheap economy cars.

    Great Look & Fit

    The struts add a great look under the hood and are an excellent fit and an easy install-15 minutes. They raise the hood virtually by themselves and get rid of the ugly "prop stick look" giving an unrestricted view under the hood! A must if you are going to show the car!

    Install was pretty straight forward and easier than I thought it was going to be. They look 100x's better than stock and complete the black out look of the car
