You'll need the GT bumper.

Yeah they have kits online. Check AmericanMuscle or StangMods. They go in the lower front bumper under the headlights. Looks much better then in the grille imo..

Re: Grilles and fog lights

you sure the GT grill wont fit the V6 bumper, the openings seem close~ and the grill areas seem identical.

Nope. If you look, our v6 has the body color of the bumper. The gt has black no matter what. It just simply won't line up.

Yep. As unfortunate as this is, the GTs have a matte black grille surround that can't be attached to the V6 bumper without some kind of modification. I've never seen any documented modifications though.

Yes, please. I'm sure it can be made to fit. I don't think it's impossible.

It just may need some fabrication. Has anyone seen dreamstang anywhere?

Re: Grilles and fog lights

I would LOVE to see your results with this. I also find it hard to believe that it can't be attached, just never had the balls to drop the cash and find out.

Well I did a favor for a guy in my mustang club and he said he would try to help me out by seeing if he can pick up this grill that his buddy replaced with the saleen grill (which is the best looking grill on the market IMO) so if he can pick the GT grill up for me I will write up a thread if someone teaches me how to navigate thru the stupid M.E. full site! My app is so easy to navigate but anytime I try to figure out how the main site works I just give up! Lol

Hold your horses there, '13. We older 'Stangs have been waiting longer.

Haha, JK. Sort of.

I don't like fogs in the grille.. I prefer the stock placement on our 6ers. Looks much cleaner imo. Even if I had a GT I'd get rid of them and grab the CS valence/fogs.

I would like to do something a little different, nobody around me or anywhere ive been has a mustang with halos much less fog light halos, i think it would be sick but i dont want to have to change the bumper and everything to have fog lights... Unless they sell v6 fog light grilles?

Here's a cheap solution I came up with for my V6 Mustang.

I bought some "plain-jane" fog-lights from the store and mounted them behind a billet grille from AmericanMuscle. I had to fabricate a bracket and trim some plastic here and there but otherwise it was pretty straight forward. Thoughts?

Personally, I like this a lot. I wish there was a kit or some thing that would allow you to mount them behind the grille like you did. I like the stealth look of it.
