    Installed the MOPAR splash guards today. Might have been mentioned before, the directions call for drilling out the plastic rivets that hold the plastic fender liner on. I found I could just use side cutters and clip the rivets off from the backside. Saved me the step of having to remove the wheels.

    Any chance you could post some close up pics of the inside the wheel area ( Front & Back) not just pics from the rear as all I can find on the net. I just installed the ZL1 and have mixed feelings about them. 1st rain today and I see dirt splash up the sides of my doors so wondering if I have the protection I need. I do like the look of the ZL1. The drilling of the Mopar put me ff as I would NEVER break that paint in that area. I would love to see some better pics of how the Mopar guards attach and how much protection is offered. The ZL1 install is EZ to remove if I decide to go Mopar, is the Mopar install reversible?

    Mine are on a Challenger so I am not sure how different it would be. Drilling is only required in the front wheel well. If you drill that (and you said you wouldn't) then they would not be completely reversible as you would have that drilled hole. Otherwise there is nothing else that couldn't be reversed , you would only need to buy some plastic rivets to return it to factory. If I remember I will take get some pictures tomorrow.

    Here is a link to a post that links what SRT_HC_707 did with his installation.

    Thanks, clipping the rivets off on the back side saved me a lot of time as well. I found a small ratchet at home depot and inserted a screwdriver head into the socket. Worked great and was able to reach all three rear screws.
