    Anyone prefer one or the other and why? I have the ZL1 but really not old on how they look on the vehicle (though I know they are more for function than form).

    Do the mopars look better?

    The Mopar ones fit very well and are effective and unobtrusive. I'm not too crazy about the ZL1 Add-ons version (its just cut out from flat stock CF material) - I'd say the mopar ones look much better, IMHO.

    Any drilling needed with Mopar? I think they are cheaper too

    I went ZL1 on the Charger because it was the only thing available at the time (July 2015 and no good part #s for Hellcats). Certainly a case of function over fashion and most of my double sided 3m tape needs to be redone.

    They do work though.

    I prefer the Mopar splash guards for the Challengers. I want the function, but I like the look of the Mopar guards over the ZL1 guards, just personal preference. Below are pictures of the Mopar splash guards on both Dante and Jimi.

    They definitely have a different look on chargers vs challengers.

    Yes, the Mopar splash guards require drilling in both the front and rear.

    I got the ZL1's for my Charger. they fit well, don't stand out and keep the lower quarters and rockers cleaner after a drive.

    here is my post on installation.

    Yes the Mopar ones are cheaper. Its all in choosing which one to make you happy.

    Mopars seem to have a bolder/robust look to them.

    Just put the ZL1's on today. Pretty neutral on them actually, don't look bad or good. Picture looks worse than reality (dirt doesn't help). From the straight front, back or side, you really don't see them IMG_0865.JPG

    To my knowledge there isn't a Mopar version available for the Hellcat CHARAGER. What part # are you looking at?
