Features & Details

  • Impressive Underhood Styling
  • "Mustang" Block Lettering

Prop Rod? Are you still using that old style prop rod that Ford installed on your 2005-2009 Mustang? Join the new millennium with a set of officially licensed Bolt-On Hood Struts with Mustang Lettering from MMD for modern convenience and impressive under hood styling.

Officially Licensed by Ford. This set of two Modern Muscle Design Hood Struts is Officially Licensed by Ford and feature the modern "MUSTANG" text in block lettering. The Mustang logos are not just cheap decals that will peel off in a matter of months, they are laser cut out of each mounting bracket.

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 make opening your Pony's hood much easier, they also hold 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. The kit includes two gas powered struts, mounting brackets and all the required mounting hardware.

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 officially licensed Modern Muscle Design Hood Strut Kit is designed for use on the 2005 to 2009 Ford Mustangs, including the V6, GT, Bullitt and Shelby GT500 models.

      The struts have lost their ability to hold the hood. How should I source a replacement?

      • MMD does not currently offer replacement struts for the Bolt On Hood Strut Kit at this time.

      Helpful (4)

      Purchased the struts about a 18 months ago. Easy to out on, lots of compliments at car shows and meets. Give it a 5 in all categories. The struts seem to have lost their hydraulic lift. The strut no longer holds the hood. Does AM offer replacement struts without having to purchase the whole set?

      • Unfortunately, Modern Muscle Design does not offer a warranty this far from the date which the kit was acquired.

      I purchased these struts in 09/14. Everyone that sees them, love them. However, the struts have since failed. How do I go about just replacing them? I don't need the entire kit, just the struts.

      • For the MMD Bolt On Hood Strut Kit you can just replace the struts if you would like, (Part#41276)

      will hood struts work on a Cervini's hood will these hood struts work on a Cervini's hood? if not, which ones will?

      • The hood struts fit the standard hood bolt holes. Beyond that it might be good to check out if the Cervini structure is flexible so that the struts push it up when the hood is closed.

      Well the struts work for the Cervini's Cobra R Hood?

      • Yes, this kit is also compatible with the Cervini's Cobra R hood.

      I have a 2016 Mustang GT and seen this hood strut kit in the 15-16 mustang catalog and this hood strut kit says it will fit but on the website it says it only fits 05-014 mustangs. I was wondering if it will work on my 16 Mustang. 1 answer
      '13 & '14 additional requirements I asked a shop to install these, but after the technician ruined my hood installing the CDC Shaker, no one would install them because the instructions say to cut an inch out of some plastic piece and basically move the piece under the plane of the hood. For those of you that installed this on your '13s, did you omit this step? 4 answers

          Mustang Hood Strut

          It works and it looks nice when the hood is up. I would have giving it 5 stars but the instructions are nearly useless and the shocks are too strong for lifting the hood so keep your hand on the hood when it goes up so it doesn’t bounce at the top.

          Doesn't really take long at all. To make things a little easier I recommend it being a two man job just to help speed things up it also makes it safer. Finish product looks great, and they hold up strong.

          Junk

          Looks good, easy enough to install. 1 year later, hood wont stay up. If you buy these, dont throw out your oe hood prop, you'll need it again soon enough.

          Hood Strut

          Serves it's function but mustang lettering not very visible. Could be a bit more sturdy and locking in strut is pretty hard it does not lock in very easy... I also had to relocate a air valve that was in the way of the left hood strut.

          MMD Bolt On Hood Strut Kit

          this came really fast and I am impressed at how heavy and strong it feels. the install took me and a friend about 20 minutes. (we were EXTRA careful with the tiny pins) everything went very smooth. It is so nice not to have to use that prop rod. think I will go get me oil changed so I can show them off! Thank you AM for another great upgrade to my 2010 v6 premium convertible Rob

          Not happy

          Not easy to install. Never got even one side on. Now one of my hood bolts is stripped. Can’t compress the hydraulic arm to get it attached. Instructions are lacking so there is no indication of what I’m doing wrong.

          I really like the look of this product... if really does open up Engine bay a lot more... I’ve wrapped mines with a blue carbon fiber to match the stripes...

          Why did I wait

          The MMD Hood Struts are awesome, makes opening the hood too look at the engine bay memorable. The hood opens like a high end exotic. This is a must for your build. Instructions are cheesy but if you are a little mechanically inclined you can tackle this install.

          Really helpful addition!

          Install was pretty simple except for having to move the crazy sound tube Ford had installed on my GT/CS. I'd recommend getting the delete kit to remove the tube prior to installing these struts. Mustang lettering cut into the bracket is a cool touch!
