In this installation guide, we'll walk you through installing 2024+ Mustang jacking rails on your ride. They're the perfect upgrade for any home mechanic planning on wrenching on their new S650 Mustang.

While the process is largely the same for any set of S650 Mustang jacking rails, we installed a set of jacking rails by ACCELATEC that's made to work on any 2024+ Mustang. With just some basic tools, you can fit your 2024 Mustang with a set of jacking rails in under an hour.

Tools Needed

  • 1/2" Ratchet
  • 15MM Socket
  • 13MM Socket
  • Razor Blade
  • Blue Loctite

Step 1: Trim Splash Shield

Starting on the driver's side, locate the two bolts hidden under splash shielding towards the front of the car. Then, use a razor blade to cut a section of the splash shielding out. Start by cutting along the seam on the splash shield and then straight across toward the curve in the shielding. This allows the new 2024 Mustang jacking rails to sit flush against the car.

Step 2: Remove Factory Bolts

Remove the two factory bolts underneath the section of splash shielding that you cut out. Save the two bolts because they'll be used to mount the jacking rail.

Step 3: Remove Rear Bolt

Locate the two factory bolts towards the rear of the car along the pinch weld. Then, remove the one closest to the front of the car and save it for later. The jacking rail only mounts to the front bolt and an unused hole along the pinch weld, so you don't need to remove the second bolt.

Step 4: Mount Jacking Rail

Since we've started on the driver's side, take the longer of the two jacking rails and align it into place along the pinch weld. Make sure that the holes line up before bolting anything into place.

Step 5: Bolt Jacking Rail Into Place

Squeeze a drop of Loctite onto each bolt to ensure it stays in place after installation. While the ACCELATEC jacking rail kit comes with bolts, you can reuse the factory hardware to mount the jacking rail, if you like.

Then, get each bolt hand-tight to ensure that everything fits up properly. After you've made sure everything fits properly, tighten the bolts down fully.

Step 6: Repeat the Process

Now that you've done the driver's side, it's time to repeat the process on the passenger side. Follow the installation steps outlined above on the other side.
