    Features & Details

    • Clean Styling
    • Deletes Stock Prop Rod
    • Gas Powered Struts
    • No Drilling Required
    • Black Powder Coat Finish
    • Fits All 2010-2014 Mustangs
    Prop Rod? Are you still using the outdated factory prop rod Ford installed in your 2010-2014 Mustang? Eliminate that inconvenient and ugly prop rod and upgrade to a modern set of MMD Bolt-On Hood Struts from AmericanMuscle for a clean look and unrestricted view of your Pony's engine.

    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 black powercoated 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.

    Installation. Taking approximately one hour to install, this kit includes two black gas powered struts, mounting brackets, and all the required mounting hardware.

    Application. This Modern Muscle Design Hood Strut Kit is specifically designed for use on the 2010 to 2014 Ford Mustangs, including the V6, GT, BOSS and Shelby GT500 models.

    Mounting require hood removal? With bolt on install, can you leave hood in place with prop rod & install one side at a time or is this a 2 man job with hood removal? Thanx

    Pete13

    • You can do it by yourself, I did, however it would be easier if you had another set of hands. just follow the instructions and do not fully remove the bolts holding the hood, remove the front bolt and then loosen the back bolt. You will have to push the hood away from the factory bracket to get the hood strut bracket sandwiched in between, then tighten the bolt and then then reinstall the front bolt. The one thing that happened on both sides is the bolts on the fender appeared to strip as they could not be tightened fully but they do hold and I have not had a problem with them. Good luck and one of the better mods I made as no prop rod to get in the way.

    Strength? Are these strong enough to hold up a fiberglass hood? My hood is heavy and the Drake struts are not able to hold..

    Are there replacement struts? After just a couple of years they struts that came with this kit will no longer hold up my hood. Are the struts Vehicle specific?

    Jtro

    • Unfortunately there is no warranty on these hood struts so the only way to get a replacement would be to buy another pair, although it never hurts to call in and speak with a customer service representative to see if there is anything they can do. And yes, these struts are specifically designed for 05-14 Mustangs.

    I bought a set of these I think spring of 2015. Probably have had my hood up and down about 10 Times. They already last fall before I put it away wouldn’t hold the hood up. Is there any warranty?

    I have a Steeda strut mount brace installed on my 2010 GT500. Is there any clearance issues installing these or are the strut mounts further back on the hood and not an issue. Strut mount brace goes straight across between the two struts.

    Is one type of strut better then the others? I've had the struts on my 2014 Mustang for 2-years and they will no longer hold the hood up so I'm back to using the rod.

    Army15b

    • We typically see a longer service life on hood struts than two years, however this can vary based on climate, how many times they are opened/closed and how often/how long they are left open. We typically will see a longer service life with they Redline Tuning hood struts, though the difference is minimal.

      I hate throwing money away.

      Lifespan is a real problem. I have a very low mileage '14 and the hood has been up/down perhaps 8-10 times. The struts no longer hold the hood up. It's fortunate I didn't have a fender cover or tool in the way when they failed. -Just a nasty bump on the head!!! I hate throwing money away.

      Review from MMD Bolt On Hood Strut Kit - Black (05-14 All)

      Cleans up engine bay, careful w/ battery cover

      The hood struts really clean up the engine bay by getting rid of the prop rod. Be really careful installing these with the MMD battery/brake cylinder covers. I had mine painted and they rub against the cover, chipped my paint :( I would recommend these 100 to those without the battery covers. Easy to install, hood lines up just fine after. One trick I learned from a guy at the AM show last year, he drove around with a rag between the strut and the battery cover to avoid the paint from chipping, so sadly this is indicative of all installs and not just mine.

      One Year Fix

      These are not worth the 80 dollar price. They no longer hold up the stock hood and they have been on my 14 GT a little over one year. They started failing after about 8 months when it was a little breezy; the hood would fall. Read the one star reviews and believe them. The higher reviews are from newly installed struts. I would have given them 5 stars initially too. I'll be putting the prop rod back in as it is hard to hold up the hood and check fluids, detail, etc., with one hand.

      Hood Stand Ups

      These struts were just what I hoped they would be. A snap to put on once Ihad the right tool. Future installers should know not to pull out the compression rods on the struts as you will have to hand raise the hood to make the upper connection with the bracket. The weight of the hood easily compresses the strut once it is on but you will have no luc trying to do it by hand. Ha ha. Well designed and engineered product. Just wish I would have gotten the chrome now

      Review from MMD Bolt On Hood Strut Kit - Black (05-14 All)

      Hood Strut Kit

      Overall the installation was quite straight forward and simple and the installation instructions were well written. There was only problem: Step 5 - "Pop the ends of the strut over the ball mounts on the brackets". There was no way to "pop" the ball ends on. To avoid damaging the retaining spring clip located inside the strut ends, I removed these clips, put the strut end over the ball and re-inserted the spring clip. This feature definitely needs attention.

      Review from MMD Bolt On Hood Strut Kit - Black (05-14 All)

      Watch the video first

      My factory prop rod was all rusted. I was going to just paint it but decided to go with the struts instead. The installation was easy but I should have watched the video here first. The printed instructions that come with it don't tell you that you have to remove the wire retaining clips before you can pop the ends onto the ball joints. We had to figure that out the hard way. Once you know that, everything else is easy. No holes to drill. Just use the existing hinge mounting bolts and you're done. Also, be careful not to remove the lower hinge bolt entirely, only loosen it. Otherwise you'll have to re-align your hood when you're done. We'll see how the struts hold up over time, but for now, very happy with this product.
