Nay. Makes the car look cheap.
If I could just figure out how to meld the Outback and the Neon into one car...

Do I smell rice cooking somewhere
dodge neon
Also known as a Piece-o-Shit, this car has to be the worst car ever made. Although it may look cool and have a great name, this car has many defects. Everything from gaping holes in the back floor panel, to missing interior, from failing clutches, to having the clear coat applied before the paint, this car takes the cake as the worlds worst idea of a car.

Even if you get it to fit it looks like garbage my friend had them on his neon and they were from that seller also.

I hate it when anyone puts a different yr bumper on there neon should not make something that it isnt. A 03-05 should stay a 03-05 and the older ones should stay older ones.

They're the same car :roll:

By that logic, no one should ever swap ANYTHING.

Alright children, lets play along. Lol. I ended up taken my 05 and turning it into a 02 front end and it couldn't be better(well it could) but I see what both are saying. Change it up/keep it OEM. I say do what ever you like man, you will be the one driving it, so go with what you want. :)

Well thats like me, I went from my dodge ram to my neon about three years ago and its usually the other way around. Also I had a 02 sxt front bumper on for about a few months before my evo. Its just the 02 headlights look better then the bug eye look on the 03-05 and thats why I think people go with that more and the lip abilty also.

Only reason why I stay with the stock bumper on mine is because of the mopar front lip love that lip . I just got me a 03 r/t rear bumper and still can use the rear lip with that just fits my maganflow dual better than the stock sxt rear bumper.

I did the body kit on mine for two reasons. One is I didn't care for the stock bumpers that much and the second is its easier to get sponsors with a body kit. Otherwise thats really it.

Only reason why I went with a mopar lip kit is cause I got mine really cheap. Im tryng to decide what sides to use seeing I got both for 20bucks at a junk yard r/t sides or srt sides.

To Skittle04

I would choose the SRT 4 side skirts, in my mind they give a cleaner look with the mopar lip kit
