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™.

Billet polished grille review
This grille adds so much aggression to the appearance of the front end of my mustang. The installation wasn't as bad as I thought it would be, and overall I am 100 happy with this purchase. Strongly recommended!Helpful (3)

Awesome grill, not a novice install
I have a shop at my disposal, however I will say this is not an install for the weak at heart. It does require the removal of the front bumper, which while relatively easy can be quite a task for the inexperienced. I ran into a few fitment issues, however after a few minor modifications the install went smoothly. The look the grille provides is amazing. I elected to put my foglights behind the grill and it really makes my car stand out from other 2013 GT's. The lower grill takes all of 2 minutes to install. Expect to spend a few hours on the installation.Helpful (3)

'14 GT Billet Grille
Awesome Product, Awesome Fit, Awesome Look. The Hardware (fastners) that come with it are junk, so plan on upgrading to some stainless bolts, lock nuts, and ss fender washers. American Muscle is a great company with excellent products for mustangs.Helpful (3)

Agressive and Sexy
Grabbed this Lower Grille to match the upper Mustang Club of America Edition grille. The match is unreal, and I get tons of compliments everywhere I go. I did Get my own hardware and some thread locked to ensure a snug fit. I highly recommend this oneHelpful (4)

Looks great! Surprisingly awesome quality and style!
This was a fairly easy install. I took the front bumper completely off and removed the stock upper grille/lower grille so I could do a full change out. I aligned them and inserted the new one's in. Then I did have to make a few small modifications to hold it on tightly and as a result I have a great looking set up. I am very please with this product and the quality! I would definitely recommend this to anyone looking to add a flashy new retro look!Helpful (3)

The grill looks sharp once installed. Had to work on the upper grill to get it to fit properly. Had to cut about 1/2 inch off each side of the upper bar to fit the opening properly. Lower grill fit perfectly. The directions included with the kit are poor. Once the nose piece is removed, stop following the directions. Just cut the old inner grill section out from the back. Don't try working with the tabs, you can not get them apart without cracking the plastic, so don't waste your time trying. Just cut the tabs off the old section, and slide the old section out. The new grill has four tabs for mounting. The lower tabs attached with the hardware provided. I had to use longer screws than provided to attach the upper tabs, they just seem to hang out in space. The lower grill went in easily. This is a very do-able project, just be prepared to do a little tweaking. The nose section went back on perfectly, the whole thing looks like it came from the factory. Everyone has positive comments on the grill.Helpful (4)

Fit perfectly, easy to install and adds a great touch!!!Helpful (5)
So. In the video , Justin mentions not having to remove the stock bottom grill to put this one on but can you?
The Modern Billet Polished Retro Lower Grille is an overlay design and will require the factory lower grille so it can be installed.
Will this void the factory warranty?
There is no reason it would void the warranty.
Billet Grille for 2013 GT item # 41296 will this fit my 2013 base V6 ?
Unfortunately not. This grille will only fit properly on the GT. Check out the available grilles for your V6 at this link and click on 2013 V6 at the tab on the top: http://www.americanmuscle.com/2010-mustang-grilles.html Hope this helps!
