Review & Install Video

So the Shelby GT500 Rear Valence I've got here today is gonna be a great option for any '13 or '14 owners out there that are looking to make a huge change out back, a little homage to the legendary GT500, and either for someone that wants an Axle Back or a Cat-Back with quad tips because you're gonna need this to complete the look. I'll throw it out there that the install isn't bad, but it's not gonna be for the faint of heart because you're gonna need to do some cutting, but it's not scary at all. We're gonna walk you through it and it is gonna call for two out of three wrenches on our difficulty meter here, and about a three hour job. So your 2013 to 2014 looks great on its own, it picked up a mild refreshed outback from 2012 with its tail lights, so why bother, right? Well, first and foremost the rear valence on the GT500 just looks bad ass, it's a great way to add some style, but if you're one of the owners out there that's dead set on running a quad tip exit Cat-Back or Axle Back, you're not into the idea of playing operation cutting up your factory bumper, this is gonna be the option for you. Purpose aside here guys, this looks mean, it's more aggressive, it pops and it's gonna complement anything else you might have on your car and the pictures on the product page really just don't do it justice. Now, I'll throw it out there that we have this on Justin's 2014 GT with a set of wheels, slight drop maybe some side skirts, it just sets it off. Everything plays really nicer together. Now, toss a GT500 spoiler at it then you're looking at a win win combination. So we're all car people here and if you're watching this video I'm gonna take a wild guess and say that you are too and we're all gonna find ways to modern our cars any way we see fit, and Rear Valences here guys are just great ways to improve the overall look and execution of your car. Now, not to mention most if not all drivers on the road are gonna be looking at your rear end, so why not? So you've got some great reasons why you might wanna throw this onto your '13 or '14 so let's take a closer look at what this sucker is made out of. With aftermarket Ford parts, you should expect showroom quality materials. This valence is exactly what came on the Shelby from the factory and that's what you're gonna get. Now, this is an OE quality high pressure injection molded thermal plastic, which just means that it's strong. Now, on the surface you're gonna be looking at a factory style grain-texture which is also durable so you're not gonna have to worry about bits of rubber or anything coming off the road hitting it. Now, if you want to take it a step further then you could definitely have a color match, but I think it looks great on its own against any color Mustang. Now, in terms of the pricing though, whenever I hear Ford parts I usually prepare to pay a little bit extra, but that's really not gonna be the case with this. You're looking at just shy of 300 bucks and all I know it's not the most inexpensive option out there. Consider that this was factory equipment on the GT500 that co-rank close to 60,000 depending on how you optioned it. But on the flip side here, if you're after a valence and you're looking to spend a little bit less there are a few other options out there for Roush or MMD, but their orientation is slightly different. The Roush really is meant for square exhaust tips and I honestly think it just looks a little bit off with round tips. And the MMD can only accommodate a dual tip set up. So for what it's worth here guys, the GT500 really just takes the cake. Installwise, like I mentioned up top this is gonna call for two out of three wrenches on our difficulty meter here and about a two to three hour job because there's going to be some cutting. Now, this isn't anything nuts here guys, we're talking taking a dremel or a body saw. But here's the kicker guys, Ford actually mark the back side of your current factory of valence which is gonna show you exactly where you need to cut to accomplish this. But either way, you're just going to need a basic socket set, pliers, and a jack and stands to get the job done. So you begin by getting your rear end off the ground, you don't wanna get it to your trunk and then unscrew the plastic screws and fasteners from the back plastic panel, lift that up and then disconnect the taillight harness. Once you're done there move on to removing the three screws from the rear splash guard and if need be you can remove your factory wheels, but it's not necessary. So along the inside Ford more or less conveniently drew a little line for where you'd need to cut the bumper. Assuming you're pairing this with a quad exhaust you're gonna need to pull your Axle Back or Cat-Back which can be done pretty easily, but we're gonna focus on getting the valence on. Now, from inside the bumper you're gonna wanna remove the two reflectors and black trim and this can be done easily with a pair of pliers by essentially just compressing the clips, and the reflectors will go back in, but the black trim can also be set aside or trashed. So once that's done guys, the hard work is more or less out of the way and you're on your way to getting your new valence on which will easily snap in to place. Now, with the taillights removed it's going to help to easily get that back on into place and you gonna wanna push from the middle to the outside. After that, work on reinstalling your taillight harness, reinstall your push pins on the plastic arms, reinstall the lights, get your trunk and back together and that's it. So that's gonna wrap things up with Ford Shelby GT500 Rear Valence fitting the 2013 and 2014 Mustang, that can be found right here at americanmuscle.com.

Quality Construction. Made from OEM quality high pressure injection molded thermal plastic for it's long lasting durability, this rear diffuser features an OEM grained texture for increased longevity against rock impacts from daily driving.

GT and V6 Installation Note. Installation of this Shelby GT500 rear valance diffuser on a GT or V6 model will require modifing the stock rear bumper fascia cover.

Fortunately Ford pre-marked the backside of the factory fascia cover showing exactly where you need to cut making the job much easier.

Will this work without quad exhaust?? Will it look ok with just dual??

BATMOBILE0311

  • The Ford Shelby GT500 Rear Valance will still physically install on the bumper without a quad exhaust, However depending on the width of your dual exhaust tips it could leave a considerably large gap.

Will this item fit a 2012 mustang gt?

TitoP

  • This Ford Shelby GT500 Rear Valance is specifically designed for the 2013-14 models and will not fit your 2012 GT, due to the slight rear-end body differences Ford did for the 13-14 models.

How much room in width would I have for the tips? I'm wanting to go with aftermarket quad tips on my roush mufflers, and was wanting to know how much room I have to work with for this product.

Has anyone painted this to match their car's color? For example I wonder how it might look to paint this and the license plate surround a semi glossy black to match my mustang.

    Great Rear Upgrade

    Installed this with the Shelby quad exhaust in about an afternoon, couldn't be happier. Looks great compared to stock bumper, looks much meaner from behind. You do have to cut your bumper, but there are lines on the inside of the bumper that tell you where...but still...you are cutting up your Mustang. Install takes about 3 hours, but I really took my time on the cuts. Anyone with a little DIY in them can knock this out.

I do recommend making this a weekend project and having a second set of hands. Cool thing is this kit looks completely stock after everything was finished. Now I have that quad exhaust look of the 2013+ Shelby without the price tag! A must have!

    Rear Upgrade

    This valance was easy to install. Just remove the taillights, pop off the rear bumper cover, trace the factory cut line and slot markings, cut along the cut line with an air saw, drill-out and cut the slots and clean up the edges with a file. Once the cutting and clean-up are done just push out the black insert and reflectors and push in the valance and reinstall the reflectors. Then reinstall the bumper cover and tail lights. Once installed it gives the rear of the car a more muscular look. I installed a Corsa axle-back quad exhaust with mine. The Corsa exhaust completely fills the openings and looks awesome with the GT500 Valance.

    AMAZING

    I really looked around and around for something to really set my car off. This did the job PERFECTLY. It took close to 3 or 4 hours to do. The hardest part was cutting the bumper. Taking our your taillights will help A TON. Its simple to remove them. I was astonished after I was done, I was literally speechless If you buy this valance you will need to buy the Shelby gt500 axlebacks, or buy Quad tips(I have the Roush axleback now with quad tips) to finish off the look. If you have single tips, in my opinion, it will look a little odd because of the wider holes. I also put CDC performance grille and RTR chin spoiler on as well. I literally drive the Best looking car on campus now, thanks to American Muscle. Fast shipping, Great Products! AM all the way!

    Great product

    Great OEM quality, looks fantastic. I used a Dremel with a plastic cutting wheel to trim the bumper cover. However, as others have stated, you can’t get in there from the inside. I drilled holes every 2” or so and cut from the outside and connected the dots. Worked well and had no issues. Your cut line doesn’t need to be cleaned up all too much because the cut will be 100 covered by the valance. Looks great, totally worth it

    Nice Rear Valance, missing some hardware

    Install for this valance is very straight forward. You remove the bumper and cut along the lines on the back to make this valance fit. I used a combination of a drill, sawzall, and dremel and didn't really have any issues. One thing that is missing though is there should be 2 bumper retainer fasteners included with this valance. They go on the outer most edge at each side of the valance, and while they are not required, they make the valance fit better. I improvised by going to autozone and finding bumper fasteners that would work. The packaging of this valance could also be better. Mine had a few minor scratches on it but nothing noticeable until you were right up on the car so I let it slide. All in all though this is a nice valance if you want to go the quad tip route.

    Nice addition!

    2-3 hour install. Ford embosses the inside of the bumper so you know where to cut. Run down to staples and get a gold sharpie and trace the embossed line. Slot cut outs require a 5 thirty seconds drill bit. Oh and don't forget the air saw. This isn't a project you can do with your dad's scroll saw.

    I was able to knock this out myself in about 2 hours and that's being very careful and very precise when cutting my bumper. It can be nerve wrecking but just stay calm and take your time. Taking off the bumper makes it 10x times easier to work with. I'd definitely recommend this and the Magnaflow Quad tips to ANYONE!!

    This item converts your mustang rear to the one of a GT500. I strongly recommend you buy dual tip exhausts for this. It looks great however, it is not going to be a perfect fit. Some cutting will be done for this to fit.

    Awesome product! Easily able to install without removing rear bumper. I found it was easiest to get the rear of the car on jack stands so you have more room to work. Takes less than an hour to install and well worth the money. Great quality and awesome fit. I have absolutely no complaints.

    GT to GT500

    I purchased this exhaust with the rear valance which was sold separately. I am giving the entire kit 4 stars instead of 5 because CJ pony parts sells them together at a cheaper price but the sake of convenience I still purchased the kit thru americanmuscle because there was a 15 dollar coupons I used but i still paid slightly more of 5 dollars for the entire kit. They gave me the option to call but I decided to dive in and purchase them anyway. When I received the rear valance in the mail, the packaging was not very impressive. The box was opened and they didn't give enough care to pack it better because the valance was light and the two appendages looks like it will come off if your not careful in handling it. Anyway I took the rear valance with me to the shop to get it installed with my magnoflow quad tips. What a difference in appearance my car makes Combine with the exhaust she is worth every penny you will love our car even more.
