Bumper is the same part #. Grilles just snap in. Mine will be delivered Friday. A few other have already installed theirs.

Has anyone posted pics of the 13 grills in a 12 yet? Interested to see how the radiator looks in the huge gap.

Tousley Ford, look them up on the Internet and let them know you are on the forums. Good price and fast shipping.

** These blts will not work once the under tray is installed. Didn't realize until now. You need longer ones

Here's a tip guys. For 2013 Ford decided to add a structural part to the bumper below the lower grille. They claim it adds downforce. The 2013 lower grille is less rigid than the 2012 style so they added this piece. The bumper has to come off to put it on but IMO, it's worth adding if your using 2013 gt500 grilles. In the lower right of this pic you can see what I'm talking about.




Here is the part #

These part numbers will work to secure it. You need 6 of each. The clips are 100% exactly the right part. Finding the right bolts that go into them was tough because the dealer couldn't locate the part number. These bolts work but they are hard to go in. They do secure it though, just kind of tricky to get the wrench in on an angle to tighten them. More time consuming than tricky actually.

You would be correct. I was at a meet with another 13 GT500 that didn't have the track pack that I do. My lower grill is open at the passenger side indent to send air to the supplemental cooler behind there. There were a few other differences but nothing major.

And on the driver's side there is another cooler behind the lower duct on that side as well

I ordered the track pack, and if removing the fogs is what's necessary, then that's what I'll do. This is, of course, if I experience problems keeping the brakes cool.
