Review & Install Video
What's going on guys? I'm Alex from americanmuscle.com. And today, I am bringing you my quick review and breakdown of the Roush Rocker Winglets fitting your 2015 through current Mustang. So in this video, I'm gonna talk about who this kid might appeal to, the construction and materials that went into this, what you should expect to be spending. And then we're gonna take a very quick look at the installation. We're gonna be looking at a very simple one out of three wrenches in the difficulty meter and about 30 minutes to get these on to your car. And I'll have a little bit for you on that later.
So the Roush Rocker Winglet kit that I have here today is gonna be a great option for any 2015 through current Mustang owner that's looking to make a very bold and big difference into your exterior looks without having to spend an arm and a leg. So this should definitely appeal to any Mustang owner out there that's looking to make a very bold change in the looks department, just like I had said before, but for someone that's looking to mimic some of the already awesome and legendary styling of the Roush RS series or the Stage 1, 2, 3, as this is gonna be standard equipment on the car, but, again, for someone that doesn't wanna spend an arm and a leg, as S550 exterior accessories do have a tendency to run a premium.
Now, additionally, the other owner that I think this would be great for is someone that doesn't wanna get into a front splitter and a rear diffuser or a set of skirts as, again, that cost is gonna add up very quickly. And by installing these on the sides of your car, it's gonna give it a little bit more of a menacing appeal.
So something I personally like about this kit is that you could honestly get away with just installing these as opposed to doing these with the pair of side skirts and then a front splitter as well as a rear diffuser as these aren't gonna protrude out and stick out like a sore thumb. But for any 2015 through current Mustang owner, if they're gonna be passing your car, they're more than likely gonna see these as they're gonna make the sides stick out that much more effectively.
So in terms of the construction and materials here, guys, if you ever purchased any Roush part or seen a Roush in person or just held their parts, you'd probably know that their attention to detail is definitely there, and the craftsmanship is consistent throughout the kit here. So down to brass tacks, we're gonna see that this U.S.-designed and built part by Roush is gonna be manufactured from an injection Movit plastic and then it's gonna be finished off in an OE style black stippled finish, which I think matches the OE equipment on the Mustang pretty well.
So looking at the pricing here, guys, you should expect to be spending about 100 bucks for this kit, which, in my opinion, I think is definitely ridiculous, considering that most, if not all, of Roush parts are not inexpensive by any stretch of the imagination. So in comparison to some of the other styles out there, like you might find from RK, for example, you're gonna see that they're gonna have a full skirt set up as opposed to just the winglets like they have right here. And, again, for the money, you're gonna be getting away with some really good looks again and not having to spend an arm and a leg.
So again, for the money here, I really think this is a great buy, considering that you can install these alone by themselves and not have to get into a new front clip or a rear diffuser. But on the flipside of that coin, in the event that you were gonna switch up your front and rear looks, these are essentially gonna work hand-in-hand with each other to give your Mustang the best aggressive looks possible.
So switching gears to the installation portion of the video, just like I had said up top, you're looking at a super easy one out of three wrenches in the difficulty meter and about 30 minutes to an hour to get these on to your car. Now, the easy installation here is gonna be a huge selling point for me as it should be for any brand new Mustang owner as you're not gonna have to do any type of cutting or modification to your brand new car. These are going to install with the already installed double-sided 3M tape and a couple of screws and a little bit of elbow grease.
So at a quick glance here, there's really nothing to getting these on your car, and you're essentially gonna be spreading the rear rocker section in front of the rear wheels, putting these in place, and then using some of the self-tapping screws that will come with this kit, and you're good to go. It honestly does not get any easier for this inexpensive kit that's gonna give your Mustang a whole bunch of attitude.
All right, guys, so just to wrap things up here, some final thoughts. If you're the 2015 through current Mustang owner, you're looking to get into some of Roush's legendary looks as well as making the sides of your Mustang pop without having to spend an arm and a leg, I would definitely suggest checking out this kit for your Mustang.
