    Hey everyone it’s Justin with AmericanMuscle.com, and are you giving your engine way the props it deserves? Not that kind of props, I mean are you still using that dated hood prop to show off what’s under the hood of your ride? If so get with the times and check out this bolt on hood strut kit for your 99-04 V6 and GT Mustang. This 100% bolt on kit requires no modification or drilling unlike other kits, and is available in chrome or factory finish black. In addition to cleaning up your bay it also makes opening the hood a lot easier which is always nice. The kit includes 2 gas powered struts, and also the upper and lower mounting brackets. Install is very easy, both mounting brackets utilize the factory bolt locations, the best part is you don’t even have to take your hood off to install this kit. Install should take you about an hour. It is worth mentioning that this kit might work with aftermarket fiberglass cowl induction hoods or even carbon fiber hoods, as long as both of those options use factory bolt locations. Now if you decide to use one of the lighter options be careful when opening the hood, as these powerful struts are designed to open the heavy factory hood. Chances are when you pop the hood of your Mustang it’s either to show off what you’ve done, or to turn a wrench or two. You don’t want the hood prop in the way when you’re going to work on your motor, and you don’t want some ugly piece of metal front and center when you go to talk about that new blower. Do yourself a favor, kill two birds with one stone, and check out this hood prop kit.

    Prop Rod? Are you still using that old style factory prop rod that Ford installed in your New Edge Mustang? Well then join the new millennium with a set of Modern Muscle Design Mustang 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 black powercoated finish to give your engine bay a much cleaner appearance.

    No Drilling Required. The stamped steel brackets included in this 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 1999 to 2004 Ford Mustangs, including the V6, GT, Bullitt, Mach 1 and SVT Cobra models. The Kit includes two black gas powered struts, mounting brackets, and all the required mounting hardware.

    Will these work with aftermarket hoods? I have a 2001 V6, and i purchased a hood from your website. Will this work on my hood?

    • Absolutely, as long as it uses the factory bolt locations. The hoods we carry utilize the OEM latch and hinges and you shouldn't have any issues installing them on your aftermarket hood. Just keep in mind that if your aftermarket hood is lighter than the factory hood, be careful when opening it due to the power of these struts!

    What about replacement gas shocks? When one goes bad, how hard is it going to be to find a new one. I can't seem to get any specs on the cylinder itself. I would like an answer to this question as well please.

    My hood seems hard to shut completely and there is a bow in it right about where the shocks are, it seems they dont have enough room between the hood and inner fender when closed, and I have made sure the bolts are completely tight. any suggestions? is it possibly a defect? both sides are like this

    • The MMD Bolt On Hood Strut Kit should not cause these issues. Please contact our Customer Service department so we may assist you in correcting this.

      Great addition to any stang

      These are great because they bolt in and no drilling. This is my second pair and these new ones have upgraded locking pins that are easier to install and remove. The first set last ~5yrs before the struts started to fail on me this winter when it got cold. All in all it's a great kit, but would like to just buy replament struts instead of the whole kit

      Looks great, works great, easily pushes up hood every time, and easy install, NO drilling. Got on sale but would recommend at full price anyway. Had a rev performance set before and these are way better.

      Awesome hood accessories!

      My Mach 1 hood now opens like a TREASURE CHEST! Going to look awesome when I install a supercharger. Can't believe it took me so long to remove the hood prop that always got in the way. Definitely recommend this product. You won't be sorry.

      Product was easy to install by myself, not second person required. It works as advertised and holds the hood up pretty well. Not too hard to close the hood. I highly recommend it.

      Hood Strut Kit 3rd one

      I bought the Hood Strut Kit for both of my 2007 GT and Shelby. Absolutely loved not having to put the hood rod in to hold it up on the 2007's. But my daily driver is the 2002 GT and I spend most time under that hood.. so I bought a pair for the 2002 GT and it is so nice to not have to use an arm or top of head to hold it just to check things quickly and then close again. Love them! Steve
