Review & Install Video

Hey everyone it’s Justin with, 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.

    Great Idea, poor instructions

    First, The instructions aren't detailed enough. Supplied pictures are dark and aren't taken from good angles to show important points. Secondly, The gas strut ends have a tiny wire clip that MUST be removed to install struts on the brackets, but no mention of the clip was made in the instructions. You're supposed to be able to just "pop" the strut on the bracket, but the clip is hard to see and recognize. You could damage the parts or your car trying to get the struts to "pop" on, as the instructions indicate. This product should take less than 30 minutes to install, but hampered by the instructions, it took me 3 times that long. Finished product looks good though.

    What hood prop???

    This part is great! Really worth the money! Was packaged like a glove! I had some problems though. When i used the stock fender bolts for the bracket it was to short??? But i love chrome and bought chrome finish bolts and washers. And I didnt like using the stock hood nuts didnt look good with the chrome. So i purchased chrome acorn nuts and washers and that was the way to go! American muscle is great with fast free shipping!!!

    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!

    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.

    Hood Strut Kit - Chrome

    Replaced black hood strut kit with chrome kit. Easy installation when you leave the rear nut loosened only and pull the old bracket forward, then slide the new bracket in place. The cylinder could have been chrome in lo of painted grey.

    Luxury Style Hood Prop

    The hood prop is relatively easy to install, might have to make a few adjustments to make sure the gaps are evenly spread on each side, but product looks great. One small quirk, is you MUST take out the wire clips prior to putting the struts on or you will curse for hours. :)

    bobmode newb review - MMD Bolt On Hood Strut Kit

    The pretty pictures in the manual were not quite enough for me. I managed to get an item backwards and didn't know it until I tried to gently lower the hood... I am a newb though mechanically, and the "Difficulty Level:Advanced mechanical skills required" for the installation section came true for me. (the red mustang with the black strut kit example made it hard for me to figure out the details). That said, when you raise the hood with this thing, it is freaking awesome. It is a completely useless item other than being cool. pew pew

    Dont just pop on?

    Be careful when installing,instructions say to just pop the strut over the ball swivel!Stop and look mine had a small pin that had to be removed than put over swivel,and replace pin.No big deal but if you follow instructions the wont go over.

    Mixed Feelings

    Bought the chrome version. It was all pretty easy until it came time to pop in the struts. They would not push into the fixed posts no matter what I did. Tried pounding them in with a hammer, sqeezing them in with vise grips, soaped them up, and still not even close to going together. Finally, I had to remove the pins that lock the socket onto the ball, push the strut over the ball, then put the pin back in. No where does it say that's what has to be done. The directions say just pop in the struts .... yea right! Still, once done it works perfectly.
