    I'm still looking for a vehicle and planning things out, but in all my searching on the net I've found very little (as in next to nothing) listed for a 2013-15 SHO body kit. I ran across a few pictures in a Google search featuring earlier years that look to be 2010-2012 wearing side skirts, and dress up's for the front and rear but I'm not having any luck with the later models and I'm looking to purchase a 2015 ideally. Can anyone throw me a bone on where to look, company names, etc.

    Thanks,
    Mark

    There is only one company. Duraflex. It's for the 10-12' only. I just ordered the front lip spoiler yesterday for my 15'. I was told it's not going to fit, but I will have to try.

    If you would, make sure you post what you find out in the thread. I'm a Fleet Tech by trade and deal with a lot of body shops I can hit up for information. I've never been much of a blue oval guy in the past, we've got lots of Limited's in the fleet and now that I'm looking for a different car the SHO has really grown on me.

    There is more than one company btw.

    And just for the record, another 13+ owner (lives down in Texas IIRC) tried to make the kit offered for the 2010-12's previously (to work on a 2013+) and it DID NOT WORK.

    The front ends of the 2013+'s are very different from the previous years.

    Here's another company you can order from, that will ONLY FIT the 2010-12's.....

    I can't help but wonder why there's no love (product support) for the 2013+ by now. I'm fairly sure I've seen side skirts for sale but it only looks like one company with one file photo. The picture gives the appearance that it has a ledge rather than a straight down profile. I'm not sure if that's truly how it looks, or if it's just the way the picture was taken? If it has a ledge I'd think it would just be a crap catcher.

    Got the front lip spoiler in today. I bought this knowing that everyone said it will not fit. I had to find out for myself. Not sure why people say it doesn't work? I am aware that the 10'-12' cars have a different front end. It worked on my 15'! It just doesn't bolt on, I had to make my own brackets, but that thing is solid.
    I chose to keep it the flat black to match the rest of the plastic even though it's fiberglass. I'm not ready to paint all the plastic yet.

    Is it just me or is the side profile of the bumper sexy?

    Outstanding! Man, I live to tinker with mechanical stuff, so as long as the body lines are good I'm in once I find a ride. Thanks for posting up and I'd love to see pics of the front too. I'm still searching for better pictures of the side skirts made for the 13-15's.

    Jason, looking real good my friend.

    I provided the answer I did, based on a 2013 owner who resides in Texas, and had ordered the exact same piece that both you and I had for our SHO's and he swore up and down, left and right, that it did not fit his car.

    He tried selling it locally, and I believe is still possession of it, but never installed it after his first go around at it.

    I will have to point him in the direction of this thread and correct him accordingly. As much so as I stand corrected.

    Glad you made it work. Looks sick.

    Gawd dang it!!!! There's a reason I never click on the 'Exterior Mods/Upgrades,' links!!! You're killing me Jason! OK, so my wallet is asking me where the heck you got the main and lower grilles??!! I hate the stock lower grille! Very clean and sporty-looking! ALSO, how the heck did you find white-letter tires in 20" size or is that just "tire paint?" Thanks brother...or I mean thanks for nothing as I go off to spend more money on THREE items because of you and this thread!! ;)

    And you lowered the car too, correct? H&R springs? Mine is lowered and concerned about the clearance also.
