S550 Mustang Gifts
We’ve all been there. The holidays are creeping up fast and you’ve been racking your brain on what to get the Mustang lover in your life. Mustang gifts are hard! There are so many factors to consider from their particular body style to the engine under the hood - to ensure you’re getting the right parts for them. Don’t fret! You’re in good hands with your friends at CJ’s.
There are a couple ways to go about finding the right parts for your loved one who has a healthy (or unhealthy) obsession with Mustangs. First off, we’re going to focus on 2015-2019 Mustang parts specifically as they’ve been some of the most popular Mustangs off the showroom lots to date! Secondly, you can read through this guide to get a gist for what your significant other, family member, or friend may be looking for on their 2015-2019 Mustang.
2015-2019 Mustang Gifts Under $50
The best part about some of these gifts is the impact they make on the car for such a small impact on your wallet. A great example of this bunch is the Ford Performance Push Button Engine Start/Stop Kit. This little button is the engine start button from the Shelby GT350/GT350R and a lot of Mustang owners upgrade their regular Mustang with this red button.
Another easy upgrade is the LED Interior Light Conversion Kit from Diode Dynamics. Ford still has all of the interior lights as regular, dull incandescent bulbs. By converting to LED, you’ll get a brighter, whiter light that uses less energy and lasts longer! Same thing goes with the Reverse Light Bulb from Diode Dynamics, as well.
A lot of these gifts may seem small to the non-Mustang enthusiast, but they are small touches that really make the difference in setting the car apart from the rest!
2015-2019 Mustang Gifts Under $100
There are plenty of options within the $100 threshold that will make a great gift to outfit any 2015-2019 Mustang. A really popular modification among many S550 Mustang owners is a set of wheel spacers. This is a popular add-on that allows you to push your wheels out towards the fenders for a more aggressive look. As always a LED Switchback Turn Signals Kit does the trick as well. This kit allows your front running lights to remain a bright white when cruising down the road and switch to amber when you use your turn signal.
Another popular part for those who live in a state that requires front license plates is a STO-N-SHO. For those who may not be as into cars as others, us car guys can’t stand front license plates. They block the natural curves of any car’s front end, including the Mustang. With that said, the STO-N-SHO is a bracket that mounts to the bottom of the front bumper and is removable for car shows - that way you don’t need to drill holes in your front bumper for a license plate! There are options for the 2015-2017 Mustang EcoBoost, V6 and GT along with the 2015-2017 Mustang GT with Performance Package.
Additionally, hood struts are something that Ford never included from the factory on 2015+ Mustangs. A set of hood struts will allow you to remove the ugly prop rod and replace it with the hood struts that should have been there from the factory - and they even feature a Ford Performance logo!
Next up is a Shelby GT350/GT350R Shift Knob. In case you haven’t caught the pattern already, many Mustang EcoBoost and GT owners like to put upgraded Roush and Shelby parts on their Mustang. This shift knob is no different, and is a hot item to help accessorize the interior of your Mustang. It doesn’t hurt that there’s red lettering for a more aggressive look, either!
2015-2019 Mustang Gifts Under $250
Moving on, there are plenty of gifts that may be a good option under the $250 cap when it comes to 2015-2019 Mustang parts. First off, many Mustang owners love to black out their badges. This goes for the “5.0” badge on the fenders along with the running pony in the front grille and emblem on the trunk as well. Luckily, there are numerous kits available to replace these emblems at an affordable cost, too!
On top of that, there are a couple more major mods you can pick up for less than $250. The MRT Resonator Delete H-Pipe is the perfect option for those Mustang GT owners begging to unleash the sound of their V8 under the hood. This H-Pipe replaces the factory mid-pipe in their exhaust for a much more aggressive tone.
Next up is a set of CJ Pony Parts lowering springs. Mustang owners all around the world lower their pony car closer to the ground for multiple reasons. Main one being for the look - who doesn’t like a more aggressive, slammed look? Next is center of gravity, which will be lower on a lowered car which will in turn help with handling.
The Roush Heat Extractors are an aesthetic mod that will replace the factory hood scoops/heat extractors on the 2015-2017 Mustang GTs. These are featured on Roush Mustangs and add a more aggressive look to the front end of any Mustang.
For Mustang EcoBoost owners, the Turbosmart Blow-Off Valve is the perfect add-on to give that turbo-four under the hood some personality and handle higher boost pressures with absolute ease.
2015-2019 Mustang Gifts Under $500
Moving on up the ladder, it was quite hard to nail down a list of top five Mustang parts under $500. There really is so much you can get for your loved one and their Mustang when it comes to this extensive list. With that said, the most popular modification would be the Ford Performance GT350R Steering Wheel. This steering wheel is the same one that comes standard in the Shelby GT350R and makes a great upgrade for any 2015-2019 EcoBoost or GT owner.
If you know that Mustang owner in your life is looking for more power and performance out their GT, then a Roush Cold Air Intake kit is the perfect modification that adds some head-turning appeal to the engine bay while delivering more air to the engine for more horsepower. More horsepower is good! You can say the same about the Magnaflow Tru-X Resonated X-Pipe which will not only deliver a smooth, deep exhaust note, but also increase flow of your exhaust for a couple more horsepower.
Roush Performance also offers a rear spoiler that is standard on all Roush Mustangs, but makes a great addition to any non-Roush car. Installation is a bit tricky, but one it’s installed, you truly can’t beat the aesthetic value that Roush’s spoiler adds to the rear of the Mustang!
You’ll also want to make sure your loved one is protecting their investment with a car cover from Covercraft. Now you’re probably asking yourself why a car cover costs so much, but you truly get what you pay for when it comes to car covers. A low quality car cover leaves risk for dirt and contaminants to make their way in between the cover and paint only to cause scratching and swirling on the paint - doing the complete opposite job of what it was bought for. A high quality car cover such as this one from Covercraft is designed to keep these particulates out to protect the finish.
