Roush grille

I'm thinking about getting the roush grille, it'll be my first mod to my new pony car. Is it hard to instal? Has anyone had problems with theirs? I was going to get the American billet grille but since I have the pony package I guess I have to get the roush one.

Does it take a long time to instal or can I knock it out in about an hour?

That I don't know. When I did mine I also installed the front splitter so I took the bumper off. Do you have the upper and lower? It looks kind of weird if you only do the upper.

Hey austin3.7,

Welcome to Mustang Evolution!

I bought the Upper & Lower Roush Grilles and I must say, they look amazing. They are 10x better looking than the billet ones so you're already making the right choice on getting the Roush

Are you only installing the upper? or doing the lower as well? I did both at the same time and went ahead and took the bumper off because it involves some trimming of the plastic tabs to properly install the Lower grille.

If you're only installing the Upper grille, many people have simply yanked the upper grille out. Then all you need to do if pop the roush one in, and follow the instructions on inserting all the tabs.

My install, upper & lower, took roughly between ~1-2 hours. Removing the bumper was probably the longest part, being it was my first time. It is very simple, though. The instructions included by Roush are very detailed.

the roush looks so good but I'm weary of dropping down the bumper.. i really want it though. but I'm also weary of just pulling the old grille out.

I was worried about taking my bumper off too. It was actually really easy to do.

does messing with the front end have the potential to mess with the airbag sensors or anything? that's what I'm worried about too.

Not that I'm aware off. The only thing I had to disconnect was the outside temp. sensor. plus fog lights if equipped I believe. You actually are only taking off the bumper cover. I would think the airbag sensor would be attached the the bumper itself not the cover. Maybe someone else knows 100% for sure. I'm just assuming that's where it would be.

If you disconnect your battery when taking off the bumper (I would just to be safe) there should be no chance of any airbag sensors going off.

The Roush grilles are nice looking, but seem a bit on flimsy side when compared to stock. I haven't had any issues with mine and have run them both with and without a emblem.

You don't have to take the bumper off. Here's link to installing the lower grille with the bumper on.

Roush 421496 Mustang Grille Lower V6/GT 2013-2014/Boss 2013

The upper grille can be installed by pulling out the stock grille and installing the new one.

Nope, there's a video on YouTube where you just pull real hard on the upper grille and it pops out, clips and all. Search on YouTube for 2013 Mustang Grille Install.

Thanks MustangDawg! That is very helpful!

I sure would love to see a video of that! I can't imagine not breaking some of the the retaining tabs. Seems as if the retaining tabs need to be depressed in to get them started without ending up somehow breaking some of them.

Just installed my MCA grille 2 days ago. See MCA Grille forum I wrote.
To take off the stock grille it really is simply a matter of masking up the bumper area to prevent a scratch then with your fingers in the stock holes at a wide grip give it a good yank. Might take a few tries because your nervous at first but it will simply just pop off. The tabs on the stock grilles are thick plastic and the middle tabs that spring up to hold in place are shallow so when you yank on it they flex down and allow you to remove the grille easily. Id be surprised if you actually broke one.

I had no problem with breaking clips when doing the quick pull method. I could not get my fingers in there, so I lowered a crescent wrench in from the top, slid the handle through the openings, and put a screwdriver through the hole at the end. Using one wrench per hand, I pulled it right out. Just make sure to use some painters tape on the bumper all the way around the grille to prevent scratching.
