depends on how mechanically inclined you are and how much patience you have. these can be annoying on any vehicle because of alignment issues but dont rush it and plan on a whole weekend so you will not be in a hurry

Absolutely, How much patience do you have!

Hey Guys,

Okay, I want to add this Fascia piece onto my RT. You can find it here.

http://www.autotrucktoys.com/dodge_charger/Mopar-OEM-Dodge-Charger-SRT8-Front-Fascia-P18580C2246.aspx

Does anyone know how to install a new one, and take out the old one. Or is it better left to a professional?
It appears to be a complete replacement (SRT8) version of the front facia; Sorry to tell you my friend, but your going to have to remove the entire front facia to install the new one. I've unfortunately had to do this several times when I installed my Hallo lights (also requires facia removal). I will have instructs and pics posted at later date. Had I not ran into some electrical issues this process would have went easier than anticipated! Refer to my postings at later date for info on facia removal, which may come in handy if your thinking of attempting this mod yourself!

There's not a tool, they just push in. A remover tool is what you need.
Actually there are several rivits on the front wheel well that appear in the service manual to be the push ones but aren't, but you can replace them with the push ones with no trouble. When I had mine apart and discovered this, I went to the dealer to get some more. He sold me the push one and said that's what should be in there, and the service manual says that too. I bought the push one and haven't had any issues with them. And yes there is a tool for the rivets they installed at the factory, but not worth the price for just a few rivets.
