Prop Rod? Are you still using that old style prop rod that Ford installed on your 2010-2014 S197 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 2010 to 2014 Ford Mustangs, including the V6, GT, BOSS and Shelby GT500 models.

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?

Bear

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

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

HarleyFitz

  • 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.

Interested in buying this kit. Before I do I was wondering if I would be able to buy the mustang lettering mounting bracket with the carbon fiber strut?

  • We do not carry a carbon fiber hood strut kit with the Mustang lettering. If you want Mustang lettering this is your only option.

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.

  • The MMD Bolt On Hood Strut Kit w/ Mustang Lettering - Black (05-14 All) will not work with the 15-16 mustangs. We do have hood struts for the 15-16 mustangs however it will not have the mustang lettering. http://www.americanmuscle.com/mmd-black-hoodstrut-2015.html

'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?

BlackSunshine73

  • Installed on my '14. Do NOT omit this step, since the driver's side strut will not clear the stock position of the holder. It's very easy to cut through the rubber with wire trimmers, and just follow the user-submitted instructions for replacing the holder once you've got it cut.

    Review from MMD Bolt On Hood Strut Kit w/ Mustang Lettering - Black (05-14 All)

    Kit installs easily - instructions are not complete for 2013 model

    I just installed the hood lift kit and it looks great (really like the MUSTANG letters cut into the brackets!). The kit does exactly what I wanted it to do.....the hood opens a little wider than with the prop rod and is solidly supported when open. The instructions were decent, but there are a couple of things I would add to them: 1. Have someone available to hold the hood open when connecting the struts. The struts are too long when the hood is supported on the prop rod so it helps to have a second person to hold the hood open for you. The struts are very difficult to compress so it worked best to open the hood wide enough that they just clipped in place. 2. On my 2013 model, the upper bracket interferes with a line running from the fender to the hood. There are 2 attachment points on the hood for this line and one of them is directly under the bracket. I had to remove the line and re-route it, but this was not addressed in the instructions. I ended up re-using the upper attachment point and for the lower one, I pushed the clip into one of the letters cut into the bracket. Not sure if this is recommended, but if I didn't attach the lower clip, it looked like this line might get pinched when closing the hood. Overall a great product!

    This product works really good and looks great.

    I only had one problem with these. The bottom brackets would kick out when I closed the hood and wouldn't set flush with the inside fender no matter how much I tighten the bolt. Quick fix was to switch the bottom brackets (right to left ,left to right side) now the brackets stay nice and flush and don't kick out. The hood seems to open and close better too. I haven't had a problem since. Looks great and NO gap between the fender and brackets.

    Review from MMD Bolt On Hood Strut Kit w/ Mustang Lettering - Black (05-14 All)

    They work and they say Mustang

    I probably can't tell you anything about these that other reviews haven't already mentioned but here's a few points anyway. If you bought the chrome set, you can buy stainless steel bolts at any auto store that will look a lot better, M6 1.0 bolts. Get some grease, put some on the 4 balls before you put the strut caps on. With grease you don't need to remove the pins first, but you can if you want. Once installed, the brackets attached to the frame will slide, they really should have had two bolts but the idea of this set is to not require any new drilling. If you have the time and tools, make a second hole to prevent movement, but it doesn't appear to hurt anything either way. Don't over tighten the bolts trying to stop the brackets from moving, it won't work and you will snap the bolts. If you did break a bolt bead off, note that pliers can probably turn the bolt slowly and get it out, I didn't have to drill it out because only the head that snapped off was tight, the bolt inside was fairly easy to spin backward and take out. I really wanted to give these 5 stars but they came ungeased, limited instructions and I think they could have added a small piece under the bolts to prevent bracket sliding. Not normally a big deal but these are notably more expensive than other sets, I expected to be WOWed.

    Poor Design. Impossible to install

    The hood shocks do not just POP on.. They say you have to remove the pins then install the shocks on the mounts.. then install the pins.... this is contrary to the instructions that came with mine. I have spent $4,000 here and they would not even send me a replacement here until I sent the poorly designed struts back. These are 40 bucks wholesale parts and I have bought 4k in parts retail. Go with the Rousch struts.. the work better, the struts pop on and are actually cheaper......

    Bolt on hood struts

    Easy to install until you get to installing the shocks on the brackets. It's a real pain in the backside! After I finally got them on I had to repaint the end of the shocks because I had worn the paint off trying to get them on. Should be easier than that.

    DON'T Remove the RETAINING CLIPS

    OK, there are two sets of instructions on this product, DO NOT follow the customer submitted instructions. I did lose the retaining clip in the engine compartment! I just can't find it, I know you're thinking I'm lame but that's not the case, it's not necessary! Just snap them in place, It's very simple and the product looks and works great! I ended up buying a whole new set just over one retaining ring, but that's my fault not on MMD or American Muscle. Just follow the instructions in the box, not the customer submitted instructions.

    Perfect fitment. Added Instruction for 2010 is very helpful. Put on with hood open and prop rod in place. Once you have everything bolted down, and hydraulic rams on the bottom mount slowly lift hood with your shoulder and pop on rams to upper mount. Perfect product

    Easy install. Works like it is suppose to. Great looking. Only thing I was a little unimpressed with was the shock power. Just thought it would have more of a self raise but dose t at all, and you have to make sure it is up or if the wind blows hard it will slam the hood down. Overall great look and design!

    Easy install

    Very easy install once I read the reviews. No issues bolting them up to the hood (my 13 year old daughter was my help there), just need to pull out the tiny retainer pins before you mount the shocks. Would be a good idea to lay a sheet down over the motor to catch the pins in case you drop them during install. Look great, work awesome, was a great Father's Day present!

    MMD Bolt On Hood Strut Kit

    I bought these bolt on hood struts about a week ago for my 14 Mustang, and they really look good on the car. They add a touch of class to the engine bay. The product is great, does the job very nicely, to bad I can't say the same for the directions. The directions need to be up-dated. Bolting the parts to the hood and fender were not the problem. When it came to putting the struts on, all the directions said you had to do was to "pop" them on. It doesn't work that way, I tried it that way and all I got was a bent clip. Yes, at each end there is a small clip that needs to "swing" out of the way about 180 degrees and then pull straight down. I did this after bending the clip on my first try. I pulled it out and straightened it and all went well. I did the other three this way and yes they will "pop" on. I put a very small amount of grease in the ball socket just so it wasn't dry. Finding the small hole to put the pin back in may take some extra time, but it's well worth it. Install time would have taken about an hour, but my little problem added about 45 minutes to the job. Don't make the same mistake I did, and install should take about an hour. Great product!!! but up-date the directions.
