    Who's put the mud guards from ZL1 on their Charger? Do they really make a difference? Looking for someone who's actually driven the car with and without.

    i had a set for my challenger and the quality was so low i threw them out and bought the Mopar ones

    i like their spoiler guards...they have worked for me 100%....but their splash guards are really cheap

    if you buy the proper mopar brand they look like they belong on the car.......i dont know if mopar makes them for the charger...i assume they do?

    I don't think Mopar makes them for the Charger yet. The Mopar ones for the Challenger are the cats meow.

    That's really the shame of it. Mopar makes them for the Charger, but the front ones won't fit the SRT 392 or the Hellcat. I've been told ZL1 are the only game in town for Charger SRT 392 / Hellcat mud guards, but maybe someone will chime in otherwise.

    I have them. Work OK but not greatest appearance. 3m tape failed on a few, needs to be redone.
    certainly better than nothing and have been successful on my daily driver

    I'm guessing they catch the wheel well liner rivets in two locations, and tape between? Has anyone found a replacement tape that holds up?

    How do the Mopar guards attach?

    Correct. They use 3M auto tape which is some of the best stuff around - any replacement should be the same stuff, don't know what would work better. How it holds up depends on how good you are at applying it. Warm, CLEAN surfaces, and holding hard pressure for at least 30 seconds to a minute. The tape should never break free on its own if you do it right. I put a strip on my Show n Stow to prevent from drilling 2 additional holes into the bottom of the bumper, and it took at least 100 pounds of downward pressure to get it to finally break free when I removed it.

    I had them on my car before I traded it. They are slim, and expensive for what they are - but no other option. They don't look "bad," and they do work pretty well in my opinion. For a DD I would say they are a must.

    Got them on mine, and have no complaints. I would say they make a difference cause the crude on the wheel side isn't on my car. Liked them enough I put a set on my 392 challenger. On a personal note when I ordered a set for my challenger, I ordered a set for a friends and only one set came in the mail. After one phone call the other set was on the mail ASAP. Great company to deal with.

    Thanks, guys!

    Has anyone actually tried the Mopar guards on the rear of an SRT or Hellcat? Mopar clearly states their front guards do not fit, but they actually have conflicting information on whether their rear guards will fit an SRT.
