I drilled it. You'll notice that two screws will come with black stuff gobbed on the threads. Those two screws are for the rockers. The black stuff seals the holes and threads.

I haven't had any issues.

The dealership installed mine and drilled. No issue and the wheel well is still a bit floppy in there. Weird.

I notice a bit of a gap between the car body and my guards, especially on the rear. I noticed this on other Chargers too. I wonder if these things do not fit flush because I did not drill.

You drillers out there, do you also see the gap?

Yes. The gap is still there. It's the way they are designed.

I drilled mine but really didn`t notice any gaps. I bought mine from someone on Ebay that said they were not Mopar branded , and weren`t. Do the Mopar ones have a brand?

I just installed mine this past weekend. (they are from MOPAR) I did drill the rears as they seemed to move a little. The fronts were solid as a rock without drilling. So I didn't drill the fronts. They sit almost perfectly flush and fit very well. :)

Yes, mine have the gaps. I may try to loosen the screws and set them a bit tighter.

Drilled mine. Made it a point to get things real tight together. No gaps, very flush. Mine are painted to match and really look good on the car. They should have come standard.

I drilled mine. Once that was done I put some rustolem on the bare metal using a toothpick. Just loaded up a bit of cardboard with paint and then generously applied it with a toothpick. Once the paint was dry, I put a bit of silicone on the holes and put everything together.

I did this to a Fiero of mine about six years ago when I installed my bass shakers into the floor. The car gets driven every winter. No a signal rust spot where I installed the shakers.
