    Dodge has come up with a solution to prevent/lessen the damage caused to quite a number of Challenger Hellcat air dams (aka "splitters") during shipping.

    [​IMG]

    Bright yellow shipping covers (1) have been added during vehicle production to
    prevent/lessen damage to the front fascia air dam during vehicle transport.


    "If the customer describes the symptom/condition listed above or if the technician finds the shipping covers installed on the vehicle, perform the Repair Procedure."


    RS Tip: For those who have not yet received their Hellcats, request that the dealer save the covers for you for future use, should you ever have to ship your Hellcat.

    -RS

    Thx RS, looks like a good solution. Those would have prevented the damage mine had when coming off the truck.

    Great, I think mine already got the damage because it went to Fenkell QC on the way to the hood shop. They do look kind of cool :) Maybe I could keep them on mine, paint them black, and then if they get damaged just replace them?

    Thats exactly where mine was damaged to. They said they will replace the spoiler, i told them i really didn't care as i would probably cause the same damage in a week or so of driving it
