Hood vent question.

Anyone know if you can use the '15 hood vents on a '16 and swap the blinkers over? I'm thinking of installing black vents on my '16, but I'm only seeing '15 takeoffs. I thought about the black vent decals from AM, but not sure if they would look that great.

LED Turn Signals for 15' Vents

I know there is a kit out already to add the LED feature to the '15 vent assemblies.
Check the big LED vendors. I just don't remember where I saw them.

But to answer the question the '15 vents will fit on the '16. DOn't know if the swap will work though.

I believe it is CJ Pony Parts. It mounts behind the mesh. The '16's vent blinkers are above the actual mesh. Looks way better. Wish I knew someone with a '15 so I could compare.

There is a guy on m6g that has taken factory 2016 vents and their harness and put them on his 2015 GT. Think his user name is jameo. Did a DIY thread on it.

You mean he swapped the entire vent?

Gotcha. I'm wondering if the signals themselves can fit into the '15 vents, because I'm only finding '15 takeoffs right now.

Well he found some 2016 and he said the harness for them wasn't but like $40 from Ford. It's in a DIY thread on m6g fourm.

I guess I just need to find some black ones from a '16.
