If its factory then it should bolt on no problem. You just use the same hardware from your mag bumper. Atleast on a 05-07. Not sure on the 08's. You will need a charger rad support though.

^charger bumpers have a lot more to them than the mag bumpers do, there are 4 additional brackets, a handful of additional clips/screws......

Well i didnt get to it last night but i was able to pick it up tonight. THe guy selling it worked for a shop called BC Fabrications here in Sac. He had a really nice SXT Charger, 2 Toned with Flat Black on the bottom and Metallic Orange on the top of the hood, roof and tail.

One part down and for only $50 for a front bumper in mint condition i think i will call that a good start!

Does anyone know if the headlights are interchangeable between the 08 charger and magnums? If I got an 08 front bumper would I need to replace the headlights? Or is the 08 headlights compatible with other years from the charger as well? I would really love to do this mod.

You have to get the Charger Headlights. Magnums wont work with the Charger Front.

Well i havent made an update to this in a while so here it goes. Ive been collecting a bit of stuff, so far this is what ive got.

Just delivered today - Projector Headlights with crappy halos! I am going to be working with Flashtech to hopefully get a set of nice Dual Color (Blue/White) LED halos for these. I will also be color matching them. Also considering modding them and adding additional Projector Lenses but i am undecided on that at the moment since they are expensive and i would need 4 of them.



Next is the upper radiator support. I picked this up off a guy locally from a charger he was parting out. He gave me the underbelly plastics and the plastic radiator covers free.





Last for now is the Bumper Cover. I found this on Craigslist super cheap and it is brand new.



For future parts, As mentioned above i hope to be picking up a set of halos for my lights next.

After that i will probably try to pic up the grille and chin spoiler from Danko. Im not sure which models i want yet, the one with the split down the middle or the one that all open. I like the look of both. These will probably be on my Christmas list.

After that i will just need the hood and fenders which i will be buying sometime in February after i get my work bonus and tax returns. Then will come the fun part of getting it all together.

Im still debating with myself what to do about paint. I know i want to change around the colors completely and already have a vision in my head and i would love to do it myself i just dont know if that is realistic or not.
