2013 tail lights

I have a 2012 mustang. Is there any way to put the 2013 tail lights into my mustang. If so please help! Any suggestions?

You can install them if you like, but there will be a gap along the bottom edge of it. A pretty noticeable one at that. I just went with the smoked tint and trim bezel to give it a completely different look for not too much of a hit in the wallet

The gap would be very large.......the 2013 tail lamps are not as tall as the 2012
lamps and the difference is at the bottom of the lamps. In order to do it and it look good
you would need to install the 2013 rear bumper as well.

I doubt the average person will know the difference. It's all about what you like and want

It's a little sleeker on the finish and the design around the license plate. With the finish on the bumper it's hard to tell the difference between the two when just looking at the shape of it

I think it'll look good but I think to make it flow better u would have to paint the side skirts.

This I heard was a email response someone got from AM. So don't quote me on it

"Thanks for mailing in and that's a great question. That's 100% correct that
we will have them out later this year but I'm not entirely sure where they
will be priced or when exactly they will be available. I would have to
recommend keeping a look out on our Facebook page as that's where they're
going to drop first. Please let me know if you have any questions about this
and we hope you have a great rest of the day."
