Buy?

Do you also buy the plastic wrap your sofa gets delivered in?

I thought people were over this. Apparently not.

If you want something to protect, buy Scrape Armor. Why are we still leaving the shipping guards on that don't protect anything and damage the paint.

It does not look cool. Everyone thinks you're an idiot driving down the road with those still on.

Welcome to the forums.

As you can see the majority consensus is the shipping guards are unsightly and of marginal worth. Once installed the underlying bumper starts to destroy the paint with entrapped grit.

But, if you really need a shipping guard I would make friends with a dealership and ask them to save one (and the hardware) from a new arrival.

Even Dodge hates them now lol. Not to mention kiss any warranty paintwork goodbye if not removed. I saw a Mopar internal bulletin that pretty much said warranty paint work on the splitter would be denied if the guard was still on it or evidence that it was lol.

It's the widebody Hellcat 300 with a pink front chin spoiler for me...it's not even a shipping guard. They intentionally painted a spoiler that color.

The rest of the random pics, including a narrow body are bad enough, but that one slayed me.

I like it on the 300 with the fake hellcat badging and cheesy aftermarket hood the best. LOL

I think by posting their phone number here they are hinting that they'd like to order a bunch of pizzas.

well OP, looks like we exhausted all leads. Based on the attached photos from ninteshop.com you posted just buy from the outlet and have it shipped for 3 day delivery.

Are they also swapping in 8HP90 transmissions? That hood looks silly on a 300.
Yeah hellcat engine and trans at least on the ones he does he does the full swap cradle suspension engine trans etc it’s literally a shell of a 300 even the interior gets swapped gauges seats dash etc it’s pretty cool to watch he recently did a old magnum he’s done a redeye into the body style I have all kinds of stuff and he does it all himself in his garage people pay him to do swaps for them as well

I see more Charger/Challenger with the shipping protectors than without..the Dbags love these things !. I left the screen protector on my TV..the picture is blurry but I think I'm cool and that's what matters.
Fortunately for me its been quite some time since I've seen one with those guards still on.
