    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.

        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.

        What is the size of the "MUSTANG" lettering? That is to say, what is the height and overall length of the lettering?

        I got this for a Christmas present and after getting my pony out of storage for the winter I went to put them on. I installed both sides without putting the struts on let hood down easy to find out that the sound tube was in the way so I unbolted it and slid it over and down out of the way. Let hood down and it seemed like it was ok so I latched the hood and it seems to raising the back corners up a slight bit. Was wondering if anybody else has come across this problem and knows a solution to this problem? I really like the look when hood is open and been told that I cant return them since its been over 30 days. 0 answer
        I have the Ford performance struts and a fiberglass hood. The back of hood sits high with the struts. Do these work better? Will a light hood sit level with fender? 0 answer

        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? 1 answer
        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.

            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.

            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!

            Best $100 Mod for your Stang!

            It's simply the best mod you can do if you plan on other mods under your hood! By eliminating the prop rod it's easier to get in there and mod it up! Show a little bit of your chosen ride with "Mustang" spelled out to those that will(and they will)be looking at how your hood is held up. Mustang's should have their hoods held up with Mustang Hood Struts!
