Its simple. You remove your radiator cover and the two 10mm boLts on the top of your bumper next to your headlights. Then you remove the front part of the fenderwells and there is two nuts on each side you take off. Then you just bolt up the GT bumper. That's it!

Do you have the front inner GT fender well liners and the GT 'stone deflector'?
How bout the GT or aftermarket GT grill for the bumper?

I have a new GT front bumper and grill from Newtakeoff sitting in a box in the garage until I get the spare parts together and have time to do the install. Could I ask which of the spare parts are really essential? My dealer wants about $45 each for the stone deflector and each of the splash guards. (So, about $140 just for these parts.) Do I need to replace these? Also, do I need a new foam isolator (about $14), screws, and inserts (about another $20)? I don't want to waste money, but I also don't want to get the job half finished and then find I need to order missing parts. Thanks!

bump......

I also have a GT front bumper sitting at home and would like to know what parts are absolutely necessary to do the install. The less I have to spend on these parts the better

The foam can be trimmed and the other items can be outsourced.
MustangsUnlimited has the stone deflector for cheaper.
If you want the GT bumper cover to fit right and for the engine to
cool properly at speed, you need these items...

GT - fender liners 5R3Z*16102*BA (right) 5R3Z*16103*BA (left)
GT - radiator deflector 5R3Z*17626*BA

Thanks for this quick response. Just what I needed! I'll check MustangsUnlimited for the deflector. Just like every project I've done on my car... it's always more expensive and time-consuming than you figured by the time you get a job completely finished.

I did this last summer. As 157 said, both fender liners and radiator deflector are whats needed. The bolts and screws can be picked up at a local hardware for cheaper, I used stainless steel. There are the plastic push fasteners that hold the liners in place, not a bad idea to get a few of those though. They break/strip easily, and if your not careful you'll need them.

Good luck and let us know if you have any other questions.

What bolts and screws are needed for the deflector? Also how much do I need to trim off the existing isolator? I'm swapping in a GT style bumper this weekend...
