I could be wrong, but I believe these aren't (easily) swappable. There are some minor differences in the shaping of the bumper around the headlight area / sides of the top grill.

You can buy directly from Ford (accessories.ford.com) but not sure if it fits either as it did not in previous years. I want one too but someone will hopefully make a GT500 looking bumper for non-GT500s if it doesnt fit.

Good luck on finding something out. I've looked all over the internet and can't find anyone who's done this yet. I'm really wanting to do mine also but am unsure as to the complexity of it.

A guy on TMS just swapped one onto his V6 after an accident, still being painted: hit a deer, time to do some mods!! - The Mustang Source - Ford Mustang Forums

Everything is separate, you have to buy the bumper and upper and lower grilles separatly. Then you also need the radiator splash shield and the rock protector underneath. I think its about $1100

Out of curiosity; why do you have a SS badge on the grill? Are u turning it into one?

It comes with the ss badge on the grille and there is a outline for the badge to sit into so a GT emblem doesnt fit in the spot.

Oh, ok, cool. Is that okay with you or are you working on customizing a GT one to replace that outline?

Also, are you still using the stock GT foglamps or do they not fit in the GT500 locations? Thanx

Was actually thinking about this today. What about filling the recess with JB Weld or similar and sticking a tri-bar on there? Unless you dont care, in which case, never mind. :)
