Review & Install Video

Hey everyone, I’m Justin with, here with a couple of cool ways to freshen up the back bumper of your 99-04 V6 and GT Mustang. I’m talking about these high quality, stainless steel, easy to install bumper insert letters which fill the void on the stock bumper really well. Now the thickness and quality of these letters are a nice alternative to the vinyl option. Now again these kits are made from 100% stainless steel and are available in 3 different finish options. We have our black stainless look which is available right there on our V6, we do also have a black chrome finish, which is a little less flashy than our third option which is a full polished stainless. The kits include the letters themselves of course which already have the 3M adhesive tape installed for you on the back. The kit also includes these alcohol prep pads which are always important to ensure the area is clean and prepped before you install each letter. Now when the area is clean all you have to do is remove the tape backing on each letter, carefully place in position the letter, and then give it some pressure. Do that of course for each letter, when you’re done, stand back, admire the view, should take you a couple of minutes. Depending on what kind of style you’re ultimately trying to achieve chances are one of these kit options will be a great addition to your ride. The thickness and quality of fitment, is sure to make a dramatic impact to the rear end of your Mustang.

Does the Steel Bumper Insert Letters come in a regular (silver) stainless steel? I have a 2002 black V6 mustang and thought that would look great on the car vs. the black. Thank You!

Mustang letter Size? Hi my friend has a 2000 or 2001 ford mustang. I'm thinking about buying him the steel bumper insert letters for his birthday. I was wondering if these letters will fit his 2000/2001 ford mustang rear bumper letters?


  • Definitely! These insert letters will fit perfectly inside the MUSTANG indentations on his rear bumper, whether it's a 2000 or a 2001. These steel letters would make a great birthday gift! I have no doubts he would love them!

Do the steel letters cover up the vinyl letters? Will these letters cover up my existing stainless steel vinyl bumper insert letters? Thanks - Cameron


  • These black steel bumper letters are cut to fill the MUSTANG indentations perfectly. They should cover the vinyl you currently have if you don't wish to remove it prior to installing these new letters. Hope this helps!

plain bumper my mustang is plain does not say nothing, i;m thinking it is a aftermarket would these still be a good option i really like the mustang on most cars and would like mine to have this thanks Tom


  • These are designed to fit within the recesses of the factory bumper. The adhesive backing would stick to a plain bumper, but you might have a difficult time centering the letters. Also the edges could catch on clothing, wash cloths, etc and pull the letters off. If you really wanted to try it, the vinyl inserts might be a better option.

    Had one issue

    I purchased the black, glossy finish. I noticed that the "M" and the "U" were "uncolored" on the top edges which allowed the silver metal color to be seen. It's noticable when you look at the letters from the top. This could have been a manufacturing flaw. The letters S T A N G letters were fine.

    Steel Bumper Inserts

    The thickness of the inserts really adds a quality look. Easy to put on and make the rear bumper really stand out. The only problem I see is that the inserts are perfectly flat and the bumper has a slight radius, so the top edges don't lay flat against bumper. It is not really noticable, but it could become a place for dirt and debris to collect. Overall they look awesome!

    Amazing worth every penny

    The letter fit perfectly inside the slots. They do stick out a little bit but that is to be expected because they are steel and do not curve to the bumper. It would highly recommend getting these.

    Paint on letters is peeling off.

    I haven't had these inserts more than a year, and the paint is already peeling off 3 letters . I have my stang hand washed, so abrasive cleaning methods aren't to blame. I'm baffled. Now I have to figure out how to take the things off, without ruining my paint job.

    Chipping Paint

    I absolutely love the look of these letters. They were easy to install and really change the look of the bumper. But as soon as it got cold last year, the paint began to chip. I called and got a replacement set sent over, but they only lasted a couple months before I had the same problem. I would only recommend these if you are prepared to paint them yourself after the factory paint comes off.

    Chipped Paint

    I absolutely loved how these black steel inserts looked on my car but after a few months (when winter hit) the paint started to chip off of the letters. It was extremely obvious because of the stainless steel. After winter ended, pretty much all of the paint was chipped off of the letters. I ended up just removing the inserts all together. Like I said, they really make your car look much better, unless they start to chip away like mine did. Very disappointed in the quality.

    Black Steel Bumper Letters

    The Black Steel Bumper Letters are such an easy way to change the look of the back of your mustang with little effort. I had the standard vinyl on before, and about 15 minutes with a hair dryer and my fingernails was all it took to get them off. Only downside is the contour of the bumper causes some of the letters look a little beveled because of this, however it is hardly noticeable. Definite buy if you want a new look

    Clearcoat peeling

    Of course shipping was great as always from AM, but about 3 of the letters had bubbles in the clearcoat on them. When you rubbed the bubbles with your finger the clear just starting coming off. Wasnt too big a deal as my car was still at bodyshop after a brand new 2 tone paintjob so i just had them scuff them up and paint them to match the met. black on my car. Fitment was great though. I would definately recommend them still. And I am sure had I contacted AM about this they would of done me right, but it all worked out.
