    I did the rear mud flaps tonight. Piece of cake. Some tips that may be helpful.

    Lifting the car and pulling the wheel is nice but not necessary. You can do this with the car on the ground and wheels on if you follow the suggestions below.

    First the instructions say to drill out the existing four plastic rivets using a 1/4" drill bit. You only need to remove the top two rivets. There is no need and no point in removing the lower two. Also, don't drill them. Get a pair of sharp dikes and look behind the fender (lay on your back and look up behind the fender liner). Cut the backs of the rivets with the dikes and pull the rivets out from inside the fender liner using your fingers (they will fall right out once you cut them).

    Put two of the speed clips on from the back side over the two holes where the rivets where. A third speed clip is needed. There is a hole between the two lower rivets (you can see it from the back). Position the third speed clip over that hole. You will need to screw the screw through the fender liner as there is no hole in that spot.

    Finally, position the mudflap and screw the three screws in. Use a stubby philips head and you can do it with the tire on (or a bit in a 1/4 ratchet -- this is probably even better).

    Takes like 10 minutes a side working slowly

    This is a very easy job and the mud flaps look nice. When I mentioned a pair of sharp dikes above.... If you thought I meant you need to find two smart lesbians then you probably should have the dealer do this job (or find two smart lesbians that are willing to do it for you). Otherwise, it's simple and pretty much anybody can do it.

    Sorry this came out blurry. I already installed the flap here. You can see the top two screws (rivets removed in that location) and the bottom screw between the two existing rivets that I said you don't need to remove (ignore the instructions that come with them)

    Plenty of clearance to work with wheel on if needed

    I ordered the front and rears and the Challenger door sills from Steve White Parts. Something was backordered as it took a week or two for them to get everything. They notified me right away of the situation and I was fine with it. Hopefully it won't take too long.

    Does your dealer have an allocation?

    Great info. Just install the rears without taking the tires off. 15 minutes!
    You have plenty of room to drill from the backside.

    Good write up I myself am also worried about the fender lip getting chipped up with rocks i guess a good film would protect this not sure how else to protect it!

    I did have film applied to front and rear. 3M didn't have the pattern yet so they used the XPEL pattern. The XPEL patterns are good but apparently you can't change them (3M you can). The film covers the rear portion of the fender lip behind the tire (say from 9 o'clock down for reference). I would have liked to do the entire fender lip but it wasn't an option unless they did it all custom.

    I guess if we drive them chips and stuff will happen. I'm just trying to keep it as nice as possible.

    Great write up on your install. You saved me two lower rivets when I get my car one day.

    Can you post some pics of your car with the mud flaps on while the car is on the ground?

    Thanks

    I'll see if I can get a couple in the garage today. Snowing yet again so the cat isn't coming out to play.

    I'm generally not a mudflap kind of guy but these are very, very well done. Once installed they look like they came with the car and they should be there. Also, with the wide tires I think they are almost necessary to keep your paint from getting sand blasted over time.

    I'll see if I can get you a few pictures today.

    Thanks.

    For the past 10 years I've been putting clear bras on my nice cars/toy cars, etc, so I will be putting the Xpel on the Hellcat now that I got her home 2 days ago.
    Calling two different places today. I will put the Xpel on the lower quarter panels behind each of the wheels so the paint doesn't get ruined by the wide tires kicking up so much debris.
    Small classy mud flaps may also be a consideration for me, hence the picture requests. Thanks again
