Can this fit on the v6? I don't like the pony cut out on the one made for the v6, i want to get rid of the pony completely... is it possible to use this grille?

BReda Year: 2013 Model: V6

  • Unfortunately not. This grille will only fit properly on the GT as the grille surrounds and front ends are slightly different. Check out the available grilles for your V6 at this link and click on 2013 V6 at the tab on the top: Hope this helps!

Bumper cover removal required for install ? Install time needed says about 30 minutes, so I'm assuming that removing the bumper cover is not needed for installing these grilles? I'm looking at both, the upper and the lower pieces but am not willing to remove the bumper cover if that's what's needed for install.

GabeP Year: 2013 Model: GT

  • I just installed these and I can answer this question with a resounding NO! You absolutely do not need to remove the bumper cover. The plastic frame the grill mounts to just pops right out with a little tug. You pry the honeycomb grill out, drill your holes in the frame, screw the billet grill in, pop the whole thing back in the bumper. Easy as pie.

Do these grilles not remove to factory honeycomb grilles? From the instructions it looks like these grilles install over the stock grilles. Can you remove the stock grilles and still install yours?

  • From the description section, it says it replaces the upper factory grille and the lower grille is only an overlay.

    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.

      Sorry to hear you aren't thrilled with how your grilles arrived - I'm very sorry the powdercoating was not perfect as it should have been, but glad the replacement was much better. If there's anything else we can do, please don't hesitate to give us a call - we're more than happy to help in any way we can.

    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.

      Even with the protective padding, there could still have been shipping damage to the grilles as they should be a perfect fit on your '13 GT. Please give us a call at your earliest convenience so that we can take care of this for you!

    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!

    Honestly a painful install, but WORTH IT

    I'll be completely honest - you wonder why this grille is so much cheaper than the others...well you get what you pay for. A pain to install, and I can't see anyone being able to install in 30 minutes. The lips for the screws come bent in different angles, so I had to take the pliers and straighten them out to fit. Then came the screws - getting them to fit through the holes in the lips and the provided locking nuts are a pain as well - I pretty much had to blindly guess as to where exactly the holes were when drilling through my grille frame. But I managed to do it after 3 hours. The grille itself is a beautiful gloss black - except for one small area in the corner that was missed (no idea why AM would even ship, having obviously seen this missed spot). But the grille is absolutely SOLID. I was worried that you'd see the factory lower grille, but you can't. With my Raxiom smoked halo fog lights (for the GT) peering from behind, it looks WICKED. Love the blacked out look. Seriously changed the whole look of the car.

    love the look and options with this grille

    Best thing about this grille is the fact that you can keep your LED fogs if you wish to. I decided to take them out for now until I can get some tint so they will not be noticeable. Install took me about 3 hours but that was with removing the bumper and fabricating a bracket for the lower grille, as I did not want to mount it on top of the stock grille. love the look now and very happy with them. Best bang for your buck as far as a grille for the 2013 goes. All others are over $200 for just the upper. this is less and includes both upper and lower grille

    Great looking, but big pain

    I purchased this grill combo and received them quickly. Went to my brother's auto body shop to put them on. After getting the bumper and fog lights off, I placed the top grill portion in to find that non of the supplied holes matched up with the holes from the stock grill. I drilled holes to put in the supplied screws. This took about 2 hours+ so the grill fit evenly and level. Then we move to the lower grill. This grill did not match up either, it also looks horrible with the pre-existing honey comb grill behind it. So, I decided to cut out all of the honey comb except for a few to fasten the new grill to it and finally it looks professional and very smooth fitting. Overall it took about 4-5 hours when if this was correctly made should have taken 1 tops. It looks good if you have the tools and craftsmanship to do as I did.

    Looks great, though installation was over engineered

    Let me first state the obvious and say these grilles look great and give a pretty mean look to my stang. Now on to the installation. You absolutely do NOT need to remove your bumper cover to install this, which made my life a lot easier. You just pop out the plastic frame housing the honeycomb grille with a little tug the pry out the honeycomb grille and you're ready to install the billet one. That's where I was annoyed. Supposedly this grille was measured to EXACT OEM specs. If that's the case, why couldn't they have put clips on that snap in where the honeycomb grille was and let me just snap it in in 2 seconds. Nooooooo, you have to drill 4 holes into the plastic frame and screw the grille in. What is that nonsense??? That's why I gave it a 3 star on the fit. It fits in the space perfectly, but since there is no installation rating, I had to include it with the fit. It's not a huge deal and I still recommend it, but it's annoying nonetheless.
