You can check with Cervini's Auto designs, they have some exterior parts. Also Steeda, Roush, and Saleen make body kits and pieces for the mustangs. I plan on putting a Saleen s281 wing on my '04 later down the road. But first comes power additions :D Also Ebay has alot of body kits, but in my opinion, just my 0.02 alot of them look like they belong on an import.

Hope that helpls

I just can't see putting a body kit on our cars...but whatever makes you happy...the Saleen wing does look nice, gives it a little more flash...just a FYI, if you put a kit on, then some springs, you'll be scraping everywhere...good luck with your decision

Pick yourself up a recent copy of 5.0 mag. or Mustangs and Fast Fords. There are several kits available. Hope this helps.

blk04cobra1, I can't see putting a bodykit on the 03'/04' Cobra. The Cobra has it's own unique style alone that sets it apart from the other Mustangs on the road.
Just my .02, but when you get into the body kits, it makes others that see your car if it's really a Cobra or what! This is just my opinion, but it's your money!:D

Good luck, with your choice!

I would have to agree, I can't imagine putting an after market kit on my 03.

As you can see, I have 2kr front fascia, splitter, and wing on mine. I like and dislike it. I love the stability at high speed, but the wing can be mis-interpreted as rice, even though it is OEM on our 2kr brothers.

I do like the splitter that is made for the stock terminator front fascia now, and would have used it had it been out when I found my whole front end.

I do not care for the Cervinis 2kr replica front end. It is one piece, (so the splitter cannot be removed) and it is not a true splitter. It does not go all the way back to the radiator underneath as does the real thing, and so it is not as strong. Also, it does not come down as low.

Copperhead, how do you keep from dragging your front splitter when running the 'Dragon (or turning into just about any parking lot around here)? We put the Steeda Cobra R splitter on ours...love the way it looks but only 4.75" of ground clearance??? We will be lowering our snake soon and I'm guessing it will have to come off then. :mad: Just wondering how you feel about yours now? Steve

In short...I don't. It brushes on the Dragon in a couple of places, but the piece is pretty tough. As I say, the R splitter (not sure on the Steeda) goes underneath all the way back to the first crossmember, so it won't get folded under or anything. I am careful around sharp inclines/declines by hitting them at angles, but you'd be surprised how little trouble I've had with it.

I did run over a "gator" in FLA a few weeks back, which tore it slighty under the right fog light, but it is repairable. It does need a new paint job because of stone chips.

I love the thing. Stability at high speed is better, and people seem to like the way it looks. I may upgrade to a carbon fiber piece soon. It is pricey, but wieghs less than half the spec one, and is MUCH stronger and stiffer.

The only body modifications I would plan on are suttle simple things like the front emblem and the fuel filler door. As for the Splitter, looks sharp, but if I had that on my car where I drive it would have ruts ground into it in no time. Most if not all parking lots have those dreaded speed bumps and some are so high I scrape bottom (exhaust) when I drive over them which I usually avoid doing so. The rear wings is nice but a bit on the super B look for me. It would be great to find a mechanical or motorized wing that only extends at speed and remains flat when slow (similar to porche 911). I may plan on new parts or a body kit after I get too much road rash (stone chips) but hopefully that will not happen.

I like the way the Cobra R wing looks on a coupe...but I've seen them on convertibles and they just stand TOO tall, esp. when the top is down...so we went with the Steeda race wing which is almost the same just lower. :thumbsup:

I hear ya Copperhead! We've got a nice "sanded down" place on the driver's side of ours, too. It's just hard to back off on the 'Dragon! :eek: :rotf: :rotf:
