2019 Charger Hellcat
#1
I just purchased a 2019 Charger Hellcat and am concerned about scraping the front bumper. My drive way requires a sideways approach to avoid scrapping however the perfect approach isn't always possible due to cars parked on the curb. I went to remove the yellow shipping protectors on the front bumper edges but stopped when I saw how badly they were scratched up. So I'm leaving them on while looking for better long term solutions. I have seen a few posts about Scrape Armor and think it looks effective but expensive (also requires drilled holes.) I then came across SLiPLO Bumper Skid Plate Kit. Anyone used these? Looks simple, self-adhesive application with no drilled holes. Removable and much less expensive than the Scrape Armor. Even if they occasionally get knocked off I would think it would be simple to patch in fresh ones. Maybe install them in 1 foot strips with this in mind.

Any thoughts, experience, advise? Are there other similar products?

The Challenger set works on the Charger? Does it require drilling holes?

ZL addons do not seem to be available for the Charger. I decided to give the SLiPLO,s a try. Easy to install now to see how they hold up. Probably could have taken more time laying them out but was tired from doing a bunch of other stuff on the car, you cant see them anyway. IMG_0423.jpg IMG_0424.jpg IMG_0426.jpg

Update regarding how the SLiPLO product has been working out for me. Just did an oil change and was under the car so I checked on how the product was holding up. After about six months, all are still in place and have performed well. No new scratches or damage to the bumper. No lost pads despite a good number of hard scrapes. My main concern was the pads would loose adhesion and depart. So far, they are holding on and show no indication of leaving.

Thanks for the follow up and feedback. I have 2 sets on the shelf waiting for the C8 to arrive.

Two things:

Not sure of the benefit if the protectors actually make the car lower (essentially) and result in even more scraping. And I'd assume more deflection / twist of the front clip since the spacers make it lower is not necessarily a good thing. On the challenger the clip is like 149 or something silly like that; on the Charger its like 499. Without paint, etc...

Secondly, not a fan of any parts affiliated with the Palestinian Liberation Organization.
