I get asked all the time, by friends and family as well as customers for the best ways to dress up a truck or SUV. The image of the Pick up as only a work vehicle is long dead. People want to add a little style to their trucks. They want to give them a high end look. Most of all they want them to be uniquely theirs… Afterall, who wants a stock truck?

My answer is invariably the same. One of the quickest and easiest ways to give your truck or SUV a high end custom look, without spending high end dollars is to add some chrome accents! I’m not saying you have to go all out and get a set of chrome 24″ spinners! Although that would be very sweet!

I’m thinking more along the lines of chrome mirror covers, chrome door handles and a chrome grille insert. You can quickly dress-up your truck or SUV, by adding the high polished shine your vehicle needs for that limited-edition look with just a few chrome trim pieces.

Most chrome trim pieces install in just minutes with pre-applied adhesive tape. They are constructed from automotive grade ABS plastic so you never have to worry about rust and they will fit like a glove and stay in place through years of use! In short they are the quickest and easiest way to give your truck or SUV a high end custom look!

Plus chrome trim is available for nearly every make and model of truck, even brand new vehicles! Look at these chrome grille inserts available for these 2007 models…

It goes without saying at this point that you should shop your car on-line before pulling the trigger and actually making the purchase. But did you know you could save a significant amount of money by purchasing factory dealer take off styling options and other easy to install parts online as well? That’s right! The same exact factory parts that you would buy from the dealership are available online at significant discounts through factory approved vendors.

When customers go in to the dealership to purchase a new vehicle they like to customize it, to make it truly their own. Items like floormats, emblems and badges and other interior and exterior trim are upgraded all the time. The dealership takes these parts off of the car in question and replaces them with the upgraded option. This leaves a surplus of stock factory parts which technically can’t be sold as new even though the majority of dealer take off parts have fewer than five miles of operation.

So the dealership takes these parts and sells them to approved vendors or liquidators who in turn sell them to folks like you and me who are smart enough to look for a real bargain! Just look at the savings on these dealer takeoff factory Ford Mustang parts listed below:

Factory Ford GT Mustang Leather Shift Knob

A Factory Ford GT Mustang Leather Shift Knob for only $34.99 Shipped!

2005 - 2008 OEM Ford GT Mustang Chrome Rear Deck Lid Emblem

A Factory Ford 2005 – 2008 OEM Ford GT Mustang Chrome Rear Deck Lid Emblem for only $29.99 Shipped!

2005 - 2008 Factory Ford Mustang GT Black Front Floor Mats

2005 – 2008 Factory Ford Mustang GT Black Front Floor Mats for only $39.99 Shipped!

2005 – 2008 OEM Ford Mustang GT 4.6L Air Box Assembly Including Air Filter for only $44.99 Shipped!

So if you’re in the market to purchase a new car you may want to buy the car without the add-ons, then go shopping online after, and if you are looking at sprucing up a car that you already own you may want to pass on purchasing the parts at the dealership and look for some dealer takeoffs!

I get asked all the time by Mustang owners “Why would I want a hinged rear louver?” and I’ll tell you aesthetics aside… There are quite a few reasons that you would want a hinged Mustang rear window louver over a non-hinged Mustang rear window louver, first and foremost being the ability to clean your rear window! The MRT Interceptor Hinged Mustang Rear Window Louver as pictured below mounts to the rear window in the four corners using adhesive foam tape, and It’s hinged at the top, and each lower corner has a lock, so it can be lifted up to clean the window.

MRT Interceptor Hinged Aluminum Black Powder Coated Rear Window Louver

This MRT Interceptor Hinged Aluminum Black Powder Coated Rear Window Louver is the perfect fit and the perfect addition to your 2005 – 2008 Mustang! This stylish and functional louver completes the natural lines of the your 2005 – 2008 Mustang V6 or GT.

MRT Interceptor Hinged Aluminum Black Powder Coated Rear Window Louver

The hinged design allows easy lift up for window cleaning and the best part is installation requires no sheet metal drilling or modifications! It mounts to the rear window using 1/4″ wide x 1.125mm thick 3M Acrylic Foam Bonding tape!

From the inside they’re virtually invisible. They can hardly be seen in the rear view mirror, and since they are aluminum they are guaranteed to never sag like the plastic louvers do!

It comes powder coated satin black and ready to install in a 1-piece design. All hardware is included as well as a mounting template for simple installation!

All the tools & Materials required are listed below:

  • Phillips Screwdriver
  • Pen
  • Masking Tape
  • Scissors
  • 11/32 wrench

  • aluminum foil 3″ X 6″

They look fantastic installed, really adding that finishing touch to your 2005 – 2008 Mustang!
