The install was straight forward, you don't need to jack up the front end, but it might help to take off the bumper. Putting the top grill on was very straight forward but the bottom grill on was a little ...

Review & Install Video

Hey I’m Justin with AmericanMuscle.com, and I’m taking a closer look at the Modern Billet™ upper and lower retro Billet grille options available for your 2013 Mustang GT. This retro inspired product is from industry leader Modern Billet™, if you’re a fan of that Billet styling, then you need to check these guys out. Exterior to interior, then have a ton of cool stuff available for your ride. Of course both these grilles are constructed using 100% lightweight quality Billet aluminum, and are available in your choice of either a bright polished finish, or a stealthy black finish shown back there on our GT. In addition since both grilles are designed using OEM Ford CAD data, you can expect a perfect fit on your Mustang. The unique feature with this upper grille is pretty obvious, as you can see on first glance it appears to get rid of that iconic Pony emblem, and those signature GT fog lights resulting in a very clean look, but the cool part is with this upper grille while it does get rid of that running Pony emblem, you can still retain those factory GT headlights, and have them hidden behind the actual grille itself, or you can choose to remove them completely like we’ve done with our 2013 here, it’s entirely up to you. Again using our 2013 for reference here in the shop, you can see the upper grille is a complete factory replacement, meaning you will need to remove your factory grille before getting started with the install of the new Billet unit. On the other hand, that lower grille is an overlay and that just means it simply attaches to the factory lower grille. Because you will need to remove the front bumper to install the new Billet grille, we’re going to call the upper grille an hour from start to finish, while the bottom overlay should only take you about a half hour. Of course the grilles are available separately so if you just want to go with the upper or the lower grille, but if you want to achieve a more dramatic look, you could try pairing both grilles together, and you’ll even save yourself a few bucks by purchasing both at the same time. So if you’ve been looking at your 2013 GT and wondering what it would look like to clean up the front end by deleting the Pony emblem and the GT fog lights, here’s your chance to get that look while still having the option to retain those fog lights, thanks to these upper and lower Billet grilles from Modern Billet™.

Black Retro Billet Upper & Lower Grille Combo Kit (2013 GT) will this kit fit on a V6 that has the same nose as the GT?

    Review from Modern Billet Black Retro Grille - Combo (13-14 GT)

    Great look, a bit of a pain to install from wrong hardware.

    As mentioned by most this really makes the front look a lot better. It is not required to remove the front bumper, but I would recommend it as well as it does make it a lot easier. I was also doing the LED blinker conversion so this let me have access to all of it at once anyways. The instructions are great for removing the front bumper, but the install of the upper grill is more of an idea on how to more than exact as the pictures are not clear at all. The lower grill is very simple, but I also do not like how it retains the factory honeycomb grill; I will change this at a later date. As for the hardware problems the upper grill screws stripped trying to go in to the retaining tabs you add over the grill mounting tabs; had to replace two of them. I also did not get matching hardware for the lower grill; the bolts were M5 and the toggles were M4 so I was lucky that I had some bolts that would work. So after having to work around those issues I got it all in along with my black chromed Tri-Bar emblem.

    Review from Modern Billet Black Retro Grille - Combo (13-14 GT)

    Good Product, tricky install

    First off I will start off by staying I am very happy with this product. It looks great and allowed me to hide the foglights behind it and get rid of the pony emblem for a cobra. However, The install of this item was significantly harder than I expected. A lot of times I was afraid to put as much pressure as needed to release clamps or tabs as it felt I was going to break them. Another thing I feel that should be fixed is the four screws you use to hold the new inside grille into the intermediate should be significantly shorter to avoid scratching the outer grille when re-installing. Overall I recommend this product just be careful and be prepared for the install.

    Nice 'n clean

    This grille gives the front end a nice cleaned up look, and I love it. installation is super easy... you really DON'T NEED TO DRILL simply put a little muscle in it when screwing into the soft plastic grille surround... it's really very easy... as for the holes, they are so far back you'll never see them if you ever want reinstall the factory grille. Only complaint yet again is the bottom grille. It needs to be a full replacement, and not just an overlay. I am sure people will pay the extra cash for the extra quality.

    Not high quality

    I made the mistake of taking off my front bumper before looking at the finish on the upper grille. It was quite a disappointment. There were runs and spots that weren't even painted. Some spots had permanent marker colored in to cover the mistakes. I wasn't going to put the bumper back on just to take it back off so there it sat in my garage for 4 days waiting on a replacement grille. Replacement was much better but still not what I expected from AM. Don't assume it's high quality finish. Double check. AM should take care of you. Also, when fitting the grille to mark the holes, tape the edges of the billet grille and the grille shell. The aluminum can be sharp and scratch up the shell like it did mine. It looks great installed but the thought of the poor quality takes away from looks.

    Review from Modern Billet Black Retro Grille - Combo (13-14 GT)

    Worth every penny

    This grille looks awesome once installed correctly. I ordered the combo upper and lower grille and it arrived within 24 hours. The only problem with this grille is the instructions provided are very unclear and there is not much guidance online for the proper installation. The pictures provided in the instructions were of no help with actually installing the grille, which included drilling 2 holes for the upper grille. Packaging was great, and I found no blemishes on either grille. Removal of the front clip is recommended, but not required. If you want to keep your fog lights you have to mount the upper grille almost flush with the grille surround to have enough room to clear the fog lights... Note that this is not included in the instructions anywhere and I had to drill another set of holes in the surround to account for this. Overall, I love the look and the price can't be beat.

    Review from Modern Billet Black Retro Grille - Upper (13-14 GT)

    Awesome look

    The install was straight forward, you don't need to jack up the front end, but it might help to take off the bumper. Putting the top grill on was very straight forward but the bottom grill on was a little more of a challenge. I personally don't like the look of the bottom grill with the honeycomb behind it, i decided to remove the honeycomb grill. The problem with that is the new grill needs the honeycomb grill to attach to. To solve this problem I put the screw going from the backside of the bumper forward, so the fastener is on the outside of the grill. You can't notice anything is different unless you are looking for it. Other than that it was super straight forward and was a fun little project.

    Looks AWESOME!

    Spent this afternoon installing both the lower and upper grille, The upper fitment is okay, ended up having to slightly modify the u bracket and screws.. Over the upper install when you keep the fogs is a PIA! Make sure you line it up with both pieces and that the fog lights aren't touching the grill. I decided to remove the OEM lower grill and make a bracket "this is the way to go IMO!" and the fitment is perfect! As far as the instructions, removing the bumper is spot on and pictures are clear. The part "allign like photo below" is not good, the picture is basically black. IMO, buy it just make sure you have atleast 4 hours and a second pair of hands doesn't hurt either. BTW I'm a decent size man with the car lowered and had no need for stands or a lift.

    Great looks, less than great fitment

    I shopped this grill even before I bought my 2013 GT. The factory grill left a lot to be desired in the visuals with the front of the car and I instantly fell in love with the American Muscle billet retro. The grills were on backorder when I got the car and I was very excited to receive the email that they were in fact back in stock--I placed my order within a couple hours. I got the tracking information promptly so I went ahead and pulled off the front bumper and disassembled the grills prior to the new grills arriving so I could be ready for the car show that weekend. The grills arrived at my door with ample packaging and lots of padding inside the boxes to prevent damage. Upon opening the boxes however, both the upper and lower grills were deformed and misshapen as if they weren't made properly. They are basically just strips of aluminum molded together then welded to a few braces to hold the shape. The farthest high and low bars from each grill were bent to the point they were touching the next closest bar. They are made out of metal so I was able to bend them back into shape but the overall appearance is a little less than what I was expecting. Because I had plans over the weekend for the car show, I went ahead and installed them as-is so I didn't have to put the stock grills back in. Overall they look very nice, but be ready for potentially having to adjust them out of the box. I have received a lot of compliments on them thus far, I just wish they fit better.

    Awesome Grilles!

    I installed this upper and lower grille on my 2013 GT in one afternoon and I highly recommend them if you are looking to change the look of the front end of your car. Install was very easy even though you have to take off the bumper cover, it's very easy and only takes around 10 minutes to do so and the instructions provided are very clear. I'm very happy with the new grilles and definitely recommend them!
