    Hey guys, Justin with AmericanMuscle.com, here with my quick review of the MMD bolt on hood strut kit, available in your choice of either black or chrome, fitting your 2015 and newer Mustang. So the bolt on kit from MMD should appeal to just about every S550 owner out there for the simple reason of cleaning up the engine bay by removing that factory hood prop. Now it's a simple product that serves a purpose and does so on the cheap, guys, as the black option's coming in under $100. The chrome option's going to be slightly more, but both options are currently the most affordable hood strut option on the site here at AM. So why would you want to ditch that factory prop rod in the first place? Well, like I just talked about, guys, it does make for a much more clean appearance under the hood. So if you're big into the show scene, this would make a great addition to your ride. But even if you're not, even if you're just a casual enthusiast, occasional drag racer, or if you just like wrenching in the first place, the hood strut kit from MMD will make life a lot easier. As far as the construction goes, well, again, as you can see, there's really not a whole lot to talk about here, guys, a couple of stamped steel brackets and the hood struts themselves, making for a pretty simple package overall. Color-wise, here's what you're going to be looking at. Again, the matte black powder coat, going to offer more of that OE look, it's going to cost you a little less when compared to the chrome or nickel-plated option, going to offer a little bit more flash, cost you a little bit more in the process. Now it is worth pointing out here, guys, that you can use the MMD kit with both your factory and after-market hoods, but just use caution when using them on lighter hoods, as these hood struts are pretty powerful and it might come up on you a little quicker than before. As the name suggests, this is a bolt on hood strut kit, meaning there's no drilling or permanent modification needed whatsoever. So, as a result, an easy one out of three wrenches on my difficulty meter. A socket set and about an hour's worth of your time is really all you're going to need here. I will say it wouldn't be a bad idea to have an extra set of hands on hand before getting started as you do have to unbolt one side of the hood at a time to get this thing installed, but nevertheless, it still can be done on your own if need be. All right, so I think we all can agree that Ford really did drop the ball by not installing these things on the newer Mustangs in the factory. With that said, the MMD option here will be an affordable solution to your prop rod problem, and you can grab your set here at AmericanMuscle.com.

    A Prop Rod, Really? It is really hard to believe that Ford is still equipping their all new S550 Mustangs with an old style prop rod. But now you can add the modern convenience and clean good looks of hood struts to your late model Pony with a set of Modern Muscle Design Hood Struts available from AmericanMuscle.

    Style And Strength. Designed to get rid of that ugly prop rod, this set of two powerful yet sleek MMD gas struts not only makes opening your Pony's hood much easier, but they also hold it securely in place. Made from lightweight steel and aluminum, they feature a durable black powder coated 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 2015 to 2018 Ford Mustangs, including the V6, EcoBoost, and GT models. Does not fit Shelby GT350's.

    Technical Note. The MMD Bolt on Hood Strut Kit does not fit European Spec Mustangs.

    I currently have an MMD hood scoop on my factory GT hood, it makes the good quite a bit heavier than stock. Are the hood struts strong enough to hold the hood open with the added weight of the hood scoop?

    ShaneN

    • The MMD Bolt On Hood Strut Kit is capable of supporting the weight of the stock hood and the MMD Hood scoop.

    G'day, I read on the MMD chrome unit, that it doesn't fit RH drive. Do you know why it wouldn't work on a RH drive vehicle?

    RexE

    • The design of the RHD models sold in Europe and the rest of the world has slightly different mounting points for everything under the hood due to the steering components being on the opposite side. Unfortunately, due to this, the MMD Bolt On Hood Strut Kit would not be good fits for those cars.

    Has anyone had an issue where the driver side bottom bracket just doesn't line up correctly and wont the bolt go in far enough to catch the threads? I can get mine maybe one thread on and then it backs off and comes loose. If you did what did you do to fix this? Also did this pop anyone else's hood up a couple MM? not a huge deal but it bothers me but I know i'm the only one who can see it but my hood is deffly not flush with the fenders anymore.

    Hello, I have a 2017 Right Hand Drive GT and I am looking for a Bolt on Hood Strut Kit for it preferably in Black. I saw that the MMD kit will not fit a RHD Mustang, Do you carry a kit that will fit my car? Thank You, Mike J

    • We do apologize however we would not have any hood struts that would work on the RHD drive Mustangs at this time.

      Lacking

      Struts work great, but original fender bolts for bottom brace are not long enough , therefore you have to make a trip to your local auto parts store and buy longer bolts

      Love it!

      Took about an hour to install with basic hand tools. My ONLY issue is the shocks have a small pin for retention and it a PIA to get it on after the shocks are snapped on. They should be the style with a spring clip so you can snap then on without removing the clip first.

      Better than prop rod

      The price speak about the quality of the product. Easy install but needed a 2nd hand to hold the hood. Nicier look than the standard prop rod. Doesn’t have a hole to clip back the wiper hose. I hope the product will last longer.

      Not good

      The bottom bracket has to start out crooked because MMD was too cheap to extend the metal just another 2 inches so it makes your bolt crooked and you have to force it straight. Or if these were a little bit wider on the bottom the would fit fine. The windshield wiper hose mount doesn’t go back in either. Poorly designed. Wouldn’t recommend.

      Should have been my 1st mod

      When I first saw the hood strut kit I thought what’s the big deal? It’s not hard to just put the prop up. I went ahead and bought them since they weren’t very expensive. Now that I have them I wouldn’t go without them. The hood just lifts itself soon as you pop the safety latch. No more prop in the way when I’m working under the hood. Great for shows too.

      Gets the job done

      Pros: Inexpensive, good support, easy install Cons: Cheaply made, weird install, windshield wipers clip holder is blocked Overall: It does what it is suppose to do but for a little bit more you can get the Motorcraft Brand (Ford's OEM part) with better quality and a better install method.

      Installation

      The installation was extremely simple. It took longer to find my socket and wrench than to install. The hood comes up nice and easy and goes up by itself up. You don't have to look for the bar to prop up the hood. It's a nice clean look and the bar is not in the way. You will need to adjust the hood, but it's simple. I like it.

      I have an Eco with cutout GT grilles and every since I did that the hood (because the air had no where to go) looked like it was going to come off the car. These struts did wonders for that. And they look great.

      This is a simple easy to install perfect addition for any Mustang. Works very well, makes it so much easier to service, clean and display your engine compartment. Extremely well worth the cost. Took approximately 30 minutes to install and check hood alignment.
