    Hey everyone I’m Justin with AmericanMuscle.com and are you giving your engine the props it deserves, not that kind of props, I mean are you still using that dated hood prop to show off the engine bay in your ride? If so you will definitely want to check out this MMD bolt on hood strut kit fitting all 2005 to 2014 Mustangs. MMD has quickly become the industry leader in unique aftermarket parts that help make your Mustang look a lot cooler, this kit is one of those items. This 100% bolt on kit requires no drilling or modification like some other kits and is available in your choice of either show stopping chrome finish or a factory black finish. Now besides dramatically cleaning up your engine bay, it also makes raising the hood a lot easier as well. The kit includes 2 gas powered struts, both upper and lower mounting brackets, and all the required hardware. Getting the kit installed should only take you about an hour thanks to the fact that both brackets utilize your factory bolt locations. It is worth mentioning that this kit will also work with aftermarket fiberglass cal induction hoods or even carbon fiber hoods as long as both of those options utilize the factory bolt locations. Chances are when you pop the hood of your ride it’s either to show off what you’ve done or to turn a wrench or two, you don’t want that hood prop in the way when you’re working on your motor and you don’t want some ugly piece of metal front and center when you are showing off that new blower. Do yourself and your engine bay a favor and check out this bolt on hood strut kit by MMD.

    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.

            MMD Bolt On Hood Strut Kit - Chrome (05-14 All)

            These were very easy to install, I did it by myself in about 40 minutes. I would like them to be a little stronger though.

            Great product!

            I purchased this kit to improve the aesthetics of the engine compartment. The factory option takes away from the view of the heart of the GT500. This is a much cleaner look and I highly recommend this easy mod

            Struts didn't last

            OK, so you can probably see that these are not really shiny chrome but I had higher hopes. Really they are more of a burnished aluminum look rather than chrome! Moreover, after approximately a year the hydraulic strut or struts got weak and barely hold the hood up! If the car is slightly down hill the hood falls. I wouldn't buy them again, and check the warranty if you do like some AM parts there isn't one for long.

            Hood Sttrut Upgrade

            The MMD hood strut is a great upgrade to the common outdated hood stick that Ford uses on Mustangs. It is an easy installation takes about an hour to complete. The chrome strut really dresses up the first impression of the car as you look under the hood and engine compartment.

            These was very easy to install and added safety to hood when checking the fluids under the hood. I reccomed this for every Pony that is still using the factory prop rod.

            Chrome Struts

            Product was easy to install. Quality is sub-par. Have a problem with one of the brackets staying in its place. Tends to slide away from side of car no matter how tight you make it. I had to put a lock washer between the body and the bracket to hold it in place.

            I like them.

            These are great, they function well and they look very nice. Having a 2007 the only tool I used was a 10 mil socket. Install was very quick. The reason there's not five stars is because the driver side strut seems to max out first and the passenger side strut makes a soft scraping noise (maybe a lubrication issue?). Neither of those things affect the functionality of the struts. Also, if you don't hold the hood while opening it, the struts want pop out so make sure not to let them take all the stress when y'all open your hood.
