No way, 10-12 have a completely different hood and bumper from the 13s... U would have to convert your whole front end to make that happen... U would spend 2-3K minimum to do that

Get this grill. They look the best on the 11-12's in my opinion.

How about the boss grille? I think it looks really nice. This is the boss 302s with the mesh instead of the plastic block off lights.
The 2012 looks pretty hard too!

Don't like fog lights in the grill period myself. I want to pick up a rush grill to replace the cheap one I got from AM at some point.

The reason they do it is because it is more of a race car or track car look, and with the mesh behind it doesnt look like the fog lights will go there, in person you can see what i mean a little better. It definably gets the people asking when i go to the track or shows because they never seen it.

I actually contacted CDC about that an they currently have no plans to develop one for the 10-12 front but they said if there's enough interest they might...
