    Hey guys, Stephanie with AmericanMuscle.com here, checking out a subtle but important styling piece from MMD, these black bolt-on hood struts with Mustang lettering, fitting all 2005 to 2014 Mustangs. Modern Muscle Design, or MMD as they're known, is an industry-leading appearance brand, specializing in separating your ride from the rest with their unique appearance parts. If you'd like to check out more from MMD for your Mustang, you can always head back to the website and check out MMD under the Featured Brand section of the homepage. I'm not sure that anyone likes the look of the factory hood prop, so why are we still using it? These black hood struts offer a much cleaner appearance and a little touch of extra style with the Mustang lettering in the bracket. Not only do these hood struts clean up your engine bay, but they also allow you to pop your hood to wrench on your Mustang without the prop rod in your way. Just take a look at the 2014 behind me, and you can see the cleaner appearance. And if you'd like to see some more of these hood struts, you can always head back to the Product page on the website to check out some customer-submitted images of them installed on customer cars. And while you're there, you can read up on some reviews of the product as well. The hood struts are powder coated and not painted, so you know you can expect a durable and fade resistant black finish. They're also gas-powered struts, and do come with both upper and lower mounting brackets. Getting these installed should take you an hour or less, thanks to the fact that both brackets utilize the factory bolt locations. That means that there's no drilling required, so these hood struts will also work with after-market hoods that use the factory mounting locations. If you guys have any questions about the hood struts or the install itself, you can always reach out to one of our many Mustang experts by phone or e-mail, and they'd be more than happy to help you out. Achieving a cleaner engine bay could be easier than you thought, thanks to this black MMD bolt on hood strut kit for all 2005 to 2014 Mustangs, available right here at AmericanMuscle.com.

    Prop Rod? Are you still using that old style factory prop rod that Ford installed in your S197 Mustang? Well then join the new millennium with a set of officially licensed "Mustang" Hood Struts from Modern Muscle Design for modern convenience and impressive under hood styling.

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

    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.

    Application. This officially licensed Modern Muscle Design Hood Strut Kit is designed for use on the 2005 to 2014 Ford Mustangs, including the V6, GT, Bullitt, BOSS and Shelby GT500 models. The Kit includes two black gas powered struts, mounting brackets, and all the required mounting hardware.

    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.

    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.

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

    I have purchased the strut kit w/ Mustang lettering for my '07 GT. I don't know why American Muscle doesn't provide replacement struts for this assembly??? But in case anyone is wondering I just purchased a replacement strut from Advance Auto Parts p/n E4511 for about $24 and it works perfect. Fits on the posts, correct weight/pressure and length. Hopefully AM posts this to help those customers that are not willing to buy the whole $115 kit again just to replace a single strut.

    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.

      Review from MMD Bolt On Hood Strut Kit w/ Mustang Lettering - Black (10-14 All)

      For installation - read this.....

      Produce totally awesome. Instructions totally suck. Pictures don’t give proper angles to understand what to do. Should take 10 mins takes an hour as you have to study the different parts and screws and angles trying to match them on your car. So here’s what you need to know: . Bolts - the one on each side that need to hold the clamp piece to the car (one in each side) are the ones closest to the hood. Like within 1 inch. Picture is so bad on this. . Pins - you have got to remove the pins on each ball joint to slide the strut over the ball bearing. DONT TRY TO FORCE IT. So easy to slide the pin out and slide back in after attaching. Ridiculous the instructions don’t say this. . 2 person - I did this by myself but much easier if you have someone help hold the hood as you replace the screws. Be careful not to unscrew that 2nd screw too far or the hood will drop and either scratch or hit the windshield. If someone from AM reads this - please update the instructions and take better pics.

      Satisfied

      These hood struts prop the hood even higher than the factory drop, plus it gives a stylish look with the mustang engraving . The only flaw, is the locking pins are flimsy. Other than that, they are worth it. I definitely recommend a second set of hands. That would speed up the process Significantly.

      Nice Looking and Practical

      I will say the instructions were not complete. I have a 2014 GT and the passenger side windshield washer line was in the way on the hood. I needed to remove it and drill two new holes to insert the plastic fasteners(for the washer line). No mention of this in the instructions. That said, the work great and look great! Also make sure to remove the locking pins on the struts before trying to press them on the ball joints.

      Purchased Mar 15 and in early 2017 they started getting weak where I had to hold the hood until stable. By the end of summer 2017 they stopped holding the hood altogether. For the price the longevity is horrible.
