    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.

      Functional and Looks Good

      Love the chrome accents these add under the hood of my black Mustang. They are also very functional and makes working under the hood a lot easier without the prop getting in the way.

      Does not work

      I purchased this kit to work with a Cervani Type 4 hood. It could not support the weight. I called AM and Frank was a major help with returning and getting replacement struts for my hood. Thank you Frank and AM for your excellent customer support. Truly appreciated.

      Hood struts

      The first set of hood struts had scratches on them, but after I e-mailed American Muscle and explained - they called and e-mailed me back to get me a new set ASAP .....Great customer service - the hood struts were hard to get on, I asked my wife for help from the start and was glad that I did. Directions say tap the hydraulic rod onto the tip but even with a rubber hammer they wouldn't go on ... So ... We removed the retainer wire put them on and re-threaded the retainer wire.

      Don’t buy, doesn’t hold hood up

      I bought these for 2006 and 2007 Mustangs, neither hood stays up. Only lasted about 6 months. Not sure why they keep selling a defective product.

      The chrome looks great but shocks struggle to hold up fiberglass aftermarket hood would probably work better with original hood

      Instriction atroious

      Starting with appearance mounts are chrome, Strut tube are painted, not chrome. The most viable part. My 2012 GT has a cable housing that comes up[ by the right hinge and goes up under the under hood sound deadening. Instruction does not address this. Has to be moved. Drivers side instruction say to remove u-nut and save it for later use.. Instruction never says where to use it other than use original hardware. Instruction says "Pop the ends of the strut over the ball mounts on brackets". You can't do this without first removing the retainer clips. I build custom classic cars. A novice my want help.
