    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 chrome and nickel plated 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 chrome gas powered struts, mounting brackets, and all the required mounting hardware.

      It's awesome

      All Mustangs should come with hood struts. Especially if you take your Mustang to local Mustang meets in your are or out of town. It's the best way to show off your Mustang.

      Easy install!

      These hood strut mounts are easy to install and work perfectly. The only negative about them is you will lose a little hood height but no big deal.

      Strut Kit for 03 GT...Sweet!

      I've got to say I didn't think that it would make such a difference, but it really frees up your work space. It's nice not to have to muscle up the hood and hold it up while I fish for the old, antiquated, slightly awkward hood prop. The silver color of the piston tubes definitely make for a great combination, since my 03' is the silver metallic. The installation was pretty straight forward. It took maybe twenty minutes start to finish and that's with multiple checks that the hood was properly aligned. The chrome pieces are a nice touch, and they do dress up the engine bay. I am glad I paid extra and ordered the chrome. All in all I am very pleased with this product and highly recommend to others.

      Sexy upgrade terrible instructions

      I'll tell you what this strut kit makes your car look sick! It looks absolutely amazing when you pop the hood open they work amazing and make my life so much more easier and gives your car a cleaner nicer Look! THE INSTRUCTIONS ARE TERRIBLE honestly this products carries the worst instructions ever it doesn't help at all and the pictures aren't even clear it made it way longer than a hour to install they aren't clear and make it a lil but more challenging to install but after a hour of figuring it out I got it. Needs better instructions but quality wise 10/10 bang for your buck 10/10 recommend!

      Easy

      Installation is easy. Although the first bolt tried to cross thread on me. Be careful with that. They look great and lift the hood well.

      Great addition!

      I bought these for my 99 Saleen and the engine bay looks so much better with them! They don't come with chrome bolts, so it's best to get some but otherwise they are great quality and extremely easy to install.
