Default CS/GT front bumper

I decided today to pull the plug and buy a CS/GT front bumper kit. I ordered 6R3Z-6320049-AA. I know that this is a full kit with lower grille and mount panel, but does anyone know if it comes with the splitter also? My guy couldn't tell me exactly what was in the kit because they hadn't ordered one before except for a body shop. Does anyone know what is in the kit?

Ford now lists this kit at 399.00 online. I bought it for 314.94 today from my local Ford dealer here in Anchorage, AK. What a deal and no freight charges. I couldn't pass this up. It was higher last year. Glad I checked today.

This is what comes in the kit I bought. I found this picture on LMR and it is the same kit that Ford sells as 6R3Z-6320049-AA. It was cheaper from Ford than them and Ford covered the freight. Very kewl if you ask me.

Awesome man, congrats. Love the look you have going on your car, this should be a nice addition to it. One of the mods on my list this year...

Great decision, I put both front and rear gt/cs bumpers on my car last summer. Love the way they look, the front especially. Enjoy!

Thanks for the props guys. I'll take pictures next week when everything gets here and gets painted. (All I need is a set of R wheels like Kevin's). Also, this Mustang started as a base v6 with d/s cloth power seat and pony spoiler, That was it. Now...........

This should be my last mod (right, you believe that #$%^ I've got a bridge for sale). I've done every mod I can think of that I wanted now (when I put on the frt bumper after painting). Other than putting an 8.8 under her, I've done everything else. I can't lower it any more than she, is due to our road system so that sort of finishes my undercarriage mods. I already have 373's with LSD in my 7.5, so the 8.8 is if I can ever find one that I can buy without paying double (freight to AK is a real biatch for items this big. A hood was over 600 freight only from CA to AK, so I'll stay with the Roush hood scoop until I find a Cervini style hood with dual air inlets).

I'll be adding the ambient console this week with all the foot lights, and am adding the door pocket lights also. Just waiting for my door RGB led's to get here. Then that takes care of the interior too. It already has leather, power seats (both), seat heaters, Billit parts, DVD, IUP, MYColor and all the other goodies.

My engine area is basically done. Mods to the strut towers (had to removed the cross bar with the covers) with the chrome caps, painted v/covers and alternator cover, covers for the battery and m/cyl, radiator end covers, stainless panel, and on and on. I'm think I'm done spending money, for something that my daughter is going to end up with in the end. lol

I just got my bill today for the CS/GT front fascia kit today. It was actually cheaper than I was first told. It was $312.94. No freight charges. The whole kit weights about 20 pounds, including the box (which is freakin' huge). It is a good thing to put my old v6 cover and chin spoiler in though.

If anyone else decides to go this route, before you spend the money with the aftermarket companies, check with your local dealer. Give them the number, tell them about the 399 list from Ford and ask and see what they can do for you. If I can get it in Alaska for 312.94, you guys in the real world should be able to do this good or better with a good, reputable dealer. Anyone who needs a copy of the invoice to prove to another dealer, just PM me and I'll send you an email copy. That should make the local dealers offer you something better than AM or CJ or anyone else who sells this kit can do for you. Good luck. (Oh yes, I got about the same deal buying the rear fascia). Go for it guys.

Anything you save, is more gasoline in your tank. lol

Can't wait to see the finished look! I've been on the fence about what to do with my front bumper, but I really like the look of the CS bumper cover.

My local dealer quoted me something like $350 for the front and another $350-399 for the back, can't remember exactly but I guessed it's just because of where we live(no sales tax/small town). Although I love the idea of no freight charges AND if there's any damage it's not gonna take a month to get it resolved.

But yea man don't forget to post pics.

Give a call to McKenzie or Greshem Ford for a price quote. You should be able to get one for about what I paid there. At least, like AK, you don't have a sales tax to pay. Good deal from a small dealer in a small town though. Bumper is out for paint right now, and when it gets back, I'll post some pics up.

Don't be like me, and forget to order the front inner splash shields for the GT's. I looked at the stuff today and realized that they don't come in the kit. Make sense. I wasn't thinking. Anyways, you will need both right and left inner front splash shields, when you put this front fascia on. You should also use the air deflector under the new front bumper and mount kit (mounting bolts and nuts?). I didn't see that, but the Ford number is 5R3Z-17626-BA.

I ordered those today from Rock Auto and got both, shipped to AK for 27.00 total. They were 23.00 from the dealer (per side). The numbers are: 5R3Z-16102-BA and 5R3Z-16103-BA.

They were less than 6.00 each and the frt made the difference. Cheap way to make sure that everythng is protected and cleanly done. I saw where guys built their own panels to fill the small opening that the v6 to GT fascia's create. I don't see how you'd even think of making these when they are so damn cheap. JMO

Got the bumper back last week from the body shop, pulled the old front end off. I haven't put on the CSGT frt yet, but will this week. I messed up my sciatic nerve so I haven't been doing much the last few days. I will post up the pics soon.

i love vossen wheels (and wish I could afford them) and am not picking on ya, but the GT/CS "kit" is not a kit...It would be the same as calling the 1984 crown VIC trunk that I put on my S197 a LTD kit...It's a part from another car that seems to work...Like putting cobra badges on a v6...to each their own, but...As the op I'd be worried about the low clearance, especially in AK where I heard it snows from time to time...

also, op, from your sig...what is this and have pics?.." billit underhood w/painted v/c"

Ford calls this particular part, 6R3Z-6320049-AA a Bumper Kit. It is listed on the box and in the Ford catalog as a Bumper Kit upgrade for ALL Mustangs, 2005-09 for the CS/GT look.

Funny thing is, although it is listed as a kit, and does come kit like, a true kit would have the splash shields, lower radiator panel and the bumper absorber cushion included with all the mounting hardware. I would call that a kit. lol

The more things change, the more they stay the same....a California Special is NOT a super collectible special edition, it just isn't...no matter how much one wants to believe it is! If so, it would not still be for sale, just saying...

Thanks for sympathy Vosson. I appreciate it. I am going to start tomorrow putting on the fascia. I actually removed the old one today, but I started hurting so I stopped until tomorrow.

Gothamens. I just wanted a different look from my v6 front end, that I could afford. Freight to Alaska is absolutely ridiculous so choices are limited. That box I got from Ford would of been over $300 for freight if I had bought from it anywhere else. It is rare to find anyone who will ship free to AK or even cover some of the freight. I priced a hood recently and the freight was $615 from outside LA to Anchorage. Not even to my town. I'd have to drive 50 miles each way to pick it up. That's why I went with a CS/GT front fascia. Besides, they look good and don't cost a fortune. Gives it a little more look, for not a lot of buck. Besides, it's just a v6, but it's my toy (aka my moneypit). lol

No, no...I'm with you! My comment was directed at the members here who own "REAL" California Specials, and get their panties in a bunch when other members start putting CS parts on their GT! I put a CS nose on my GT, and got the same heat for doing so. I also installed a Raceskinz carbon fiber center overlay, as well as a GT500 front splitter, my front end looks killer!
