Front Bumper

Post by mjrpaine » Tue Jan 31, 2012 12:21 pm

Ok so I have been looking around and most people either use more mesh or just cut out the center of the front bumper on the srt-4. I saw something on craigslist and wondered if it would work. So I figured I would ask on here and see. From the picture its overall shape looks the same. I want to cut out the center of the bumper and replace it with the chrome grill from an 08 charger. Just wondering if its been done or attempted or anything ... just short of buying it and trying to do it myself without asking.

I think you would be the first. It would be nice to have the overall dimensions before buying, so you can cut a piece of cardboard to mock it up. Just to see if it may not fit well with the current opening.

I did email them and ask for the dimensions ... hopefully they reply. I think it might look good if it fits.

I like the looks of that one ... and I was trying to figure out what that was on the window ... why the hell would someone do that ... lmao.

But still ... I think my idea may turn out pretty good in the end too.

Mad props for the flawless body work though. What lip is under the front bumper? that doesn't look like a normal depo lip.

Looks like it was originally a srt-d bumper as it doesn't have the nostrils :-k

looks ok, dunno about the flared up turned top lip on the bumper, like an open fish mouth, I think its a waste of a SRT-D bumper, hell there hard enough to find as is, should have started with a SRT-4 bumper,

:thumbup: As an SRT-4 owner, I think it looks better than the stock bumper, if someone made it for sale in urethane, I'd buy it
