New grille

So I was thinking of buying a new grille for my 2011 v6 I was wondering what grille I should get? And if installation is hard?

I've got the mca grille...ford threw it in as part of my deal when I placed my order. In the catalog it is called "dark stainless billet" but its really plastic. It was my favorite grille before I bought my mustang and still is! Not sure about installation since they did it for me

I think for the newer models 10-up you have to remove the bumper to install the grill

I swapped mine for a MCA grille. Had to get away from the honeycomb and generic centered pony.

Well I really appreciate then help. I heard the same thing about having to remove the whole bumper. And I think if I do it I'm gonna get the MCA grille. I've always liked that grille and I think it'd look a whole lot better.

Yes, I was gonna order the black one from american muscle. I love the original running pony because its just the symbol of mustang but I love the MCA grille a whole lot better than the honeycomb stock grille. I just think it will give my car a whole different look.

Might want to research the grill removal some more. Other sites have had posts on this, and I believe I read where you can pull it straight out without bumper removal.

Removing the bumper is not difficult though. Just Google "remove bumper on 2011 Mustang". You'll get a step by step from Roush, and some other pictorial posts on how to do it.

Let me know if you were able to just pull the grill out. I'd like to avoid removing the bumper, but not if it means busting clips and an overall PITA.

Going to be plasti dipping today, so hopefully the pulling works heh
