  • TAG : ROUSH Mustang Hood Struts 2005-2014 Mustang
  • A common question asked by many is why Ford still includes the hood prop rod from the factory on brand new Mustangs. With the introduction of such high-tech features such as navigation, LED license plate lights, daytime running lamps, heated and air conditioned seats, you would think a simple pair of hood struts would be on Ford’s radar. Regardless of their reasoning, CJ’s is here with a selection of hood struts that are easy to install and allow you to remove that unsightly hood prop rod on top of your radiator cover.

    Good question! Hood struts are a luxury for us Mustang owners. It not only allows the hood to rise on its own when unlatched, but you will also be able to remove the factory hood prop rod. On top of that, these hood struts, offered in a variety of finishes, aren’t hard on the eyes either! You’ll be able to easily lift your hood up for car meets to show off that beastly engine under the hood, and even be able to wrench on your engine from all angles while the hood is up. It’s really a win-win.

  • One of the most common complaints you hear from any Mustang owner is the unsightly hood prop rod included from the factory. That’s why, many enthusiasts’ first purchase is a pair of Mustang Hood Struts to get rid of that ugly hood prop rod and allow the hood to rise on its own. By removing the OE hood prop rod and replacing it with a pair of hood struts from CJ’s, you will also be able to wrench on your engine from all angles, which is always a plus!

    3SX Custom Quick-Release Hood Struts - OEM or Light-Weight

    3SX now offers custom hood struts!! They are a quick-release style for easily removing the hood without having to unbolt everything and potentially strip out the hoods threads. As an added bonus and unique to 3SX, we offer TWO different versions. We have a standard High-Tension version for use with the stock steel hood, and a Low-Tension version for use with aftermarket fiberglass and carbon-fiber hoods!!!

    NEW OFFERING! We realize that some aftermarket hoods include SMALLER threads in the hood where the hood struts mount. In response to that, we now offer the option of getting our hood struts with custom milled smaller 6mm thread pitch bolts to fit these select aftermarket hoods. The stock hood as well as the 3SX hoods use M8 sized threads where the hood struts mount to the hood. Verify on your hood prior to rdering.

    NOTE: Some aftermarket hoods do NOT have ports installed to allow for using hood struts. We do NOT recommend simply drilling out a hole to install and use the 3SX hood struts as the hood material is probably not strong enough to allow the use of hood struts without damaging the hood. The 3SX Stinger hoods are specifically designed with internal hardware to accommodate the hood struts and the tensions they place on a composite material hood.

    Sold as a pair.

Locate where the hood strut -- or struts, if there are two -- are fastened to the hood and where they are fastened in the engine bay. The hood struts attach to the chassis at the rear, outer corners of the engine bay and are held in place with a clip and a pin that they rotate on.
