- How to Install a Running Pony Tri-Bar Grille Emblem on Your 1979-2012 Mustang
Hey, everybody, Alex with American Muscle. Today I'm bringing you my quick review and breakdown of Modern Billet's Tri-Bar Running Pony Grille Emblem fitting any Mustang equipped with a billet grille. So in this video, I'm going to talk about who this is going to appeal to, the construction and the materials of this officially licensed Ford product, the price, and then what it's gonna take to get this on to your Mustang. Where I'm gonna be giving this an incredibly one out of three wrenches in the difficulty meter and about a five-minute job, and I'm gonna show you how coming up later.So the Modern Billet Tri-Bar Running Pony Emblem that we have here today should definitely appeal to any Mustang owner out there no matter the age or generation of their car. For someone that's looking to replace an older or faded and worn out emblem, and for someone else that's looking to show their appreciation to the big blue oval as this can honestly install damn near anywhere. I will mention that it is specifically meant for a billet grille, but on the back, if you were to remove the bracket and put a small piece of double-sided tape on their you could really install this anywhere on your car.So a little back story on this specific emblem. This was original equipment on the '08 Shelby Mustang. I don't mean the 500s here, and it's gonna be a great option for someone that just wants to incorporate that look, pull some of that nostalgic styling, or for any Mustang owner that's running a billet grille and thinks it's just a little bit lonely. Wants to put it on there and show that appreciation to Ford.Now towards the manufacturing process, this is an officially licensed Ford product is going to be manufactured out of a pressure diecast zinc construction. It's then gonna be polished to a nice shine that's gonna hold up over time in regards to any of the elements your car might be seeing on the outside, or if you wanted to get creative and install on the inside, it'll definitively hold up over time.So something I really like about this no matter the year or the Mustang if your grille is a little bit on the bare side and you do want to incorporate that look this is gonna install in a heartbeat, which I'll tell you about coming up. But like I said previously, this is not gonna come with double- sided tape. It will have brackets back here as well as some prongs. They can snap off if you put a little bit of elbow grease into them. And if you're gonna put some double-sided tape on there, it's gonna give you an idea where you can put this all around your car, but if you're unsure of where you would put it make sure to check out the product page. Take a look at some of the customer submitted images, and it'll give you some creative ideas of where you can put this on your car.Now in terms of the pricing here. You should expect to be spending only about 35 bucks on this emblem which is a small price to pay to show that allegiance and your dedication of the blue oval out there. I would also run this in comparison with running down to your local Ford dealership and asking how much it would cost. I would almost guarantee you that it would be, if not double, probably triple the amount. Potentially, even more, depending on your dealer.Switching gears to the installation portion of the video just like I had said up top. You're looking at a very easy one out of three wrenches on the difficulty meter, and a few minutes no matter where you're going to be putting this. I will mention that this is going to come supplied with hardware if you do intend on installing this on a billet grille. However like I said a couple of times over I know you're probably getting tired of it. If you did want to put a piece of double-sided 3M tape on the back all you have to do is just remove the bracket, and the prongs like I showed you before. The only thing I would mention is if you are going to stick this onto your car just make sure that you prepare the surface with a little bit of alcohol just to ensure that it sticks correctly.Okay, guys to just wrap things up here are some final thoughts. If you are the Mustang owner that's looking to replace that tired and worn out factory Tri-Bar Running Pony Emblem with something that's gonna be obviously that much newer and cleaner. Or you're just looking to pull some of that nostalgic styling off of the '08 Shelbys I would definitely recommend picking this up for your car. I'm Alex, and that's my quick review of Modern Billet's Running Pony Tri-Bar Grille Emblem fitting all Mustangs which can be found right here at americanmuscle.com.

Coupled with one of the billet fenders, it improves the look over the faded honeycomb grille that my '03 came with. Install is easy, and it's a nice way to clean up the front end of an older mustang.Helpful (1)

Not for front grill GT/CS 2015-2019
This is a good quality product with 4 pins to properly install it to a grill. BUT the horse is very small, compared to the larger horse as per OEM emblem. See pictureHelpful (1)

Will this emblem directly replace the factory one on a California Special Grille? Mine is already losing paint. The original one fits in a flat area, with a couple of locating pins.
The Modern Billet Running Pony Tri-Bar Grille Emblem may not be a direct replacement since it is meant to be a universal item for any application. But with it being a Ford Licensed Product, it is made to Ford specifications so therefor it should fit in that spot on your grille just fine.
The car is a '17 Mustang Ecoboost Premium with the pony package that provides an OEM aluminium grill. Will the Mustang icon fit this grill? Thanks.
Yes, this is compatible with your stock grille and will fit on your Mustang.
What is the over all height of this emblem?
The dimensions for this emblem are approximately 4" x 4" x 0.5" (L x W x H).
I have a 2016 v6 convertible, would this replace the rear deck lid emblem. Thanks
Unfortunately, this emblem was designed to work with the grille on the Mustang and will not replace the rear decklid emblem.
Will this fit on a Roush grille for a 2014 model?
This emblem is designed to fit with any billet grille with the included hardware bracket.
No, unfortunately the Modern Billet Running Pony Tri-Bar Grille Emblem is designed to install into billet grilles and would not fit the MMD V Series Grille, item # 390014, https://www.americanmuscle.com/mmd-v-series-grille-1516.html.
The Modern Billet Running Pony Tri-Bar Grille Emblem has long points on the back which are intended specifically to fit in the slots on the Mustang grilles. This will not properly mount the fender as those long points will prevent the emblem from sitting flush with the body and will most likely cause damage to the vehicles paint.
At this time we do not offer the Modern Billet Running Pony Tri-Bar Grille Emblem with a black pony emblem.
The Modern Billet Running Pony Tri-Bar Grille Emblem is designed to work with a grille and a custom bracket will need to be created to use this emblem without a grille.
It would depend on the grill that you have . The Modern Billet Running Pony Tri-Bar Grille Emblem is designed to work with most but we can not guarantee fitment without knowing what you have. Please feel free to call or chat in with one of our mustang experts to ensure fitment.
This is designed to install directly to the grille, so you would not be able to install this without the grille.
The bracket is a t-type style bracket for easy mounting of this emblem in the front of the grille.
The Modern Billet Running Pony Tri-Bar Grille Emblem will fit nicely on the Street Scene Eleanor Style Center Fog Light Grille.
You can fit this on any 2015 grill as long as it isn't mesh. Personally, I think this just would kick butt on a roush grill.
Yup, it would fit and look awesome. I have an '11 so I cant fit the cdc, but I really wish I could. I love those things!
