Re: My mods

Where'd you order from? Been looking around as well. Prices are a little nuts though.

What i did was take it to a tint shop that does vinyl as well and ask for some samples as you haven't made up your mind yet and ask them to place some of the ones you are thinking of on each door close to the B piller and leave it on for a few days to make up your mind before purchasing any rolls off them or online. As i didn't want to go with the usual gloss black either. I ended up going with Metallic black

I got mine from moparpartsoverstock.com

For door handles I agree the prices are a little high and odd really.

I can understand why the two front ones are more expensive, because of the keyless sensors

But the rears I don't get. One costs like $20 more than the other and they are exactly the same.

Mine were under $400 and the reason I decided to get them was because I was going to do the work myself. I'd hate to take it somewhere and they charge me an arm for it.

Re: My mods

So I finished replacing the front door handles today. These were more time consuming.

Now I need to re-tint my front windows because I scratched the crap out of the tint on the drivers side as you can see in one of the pics. Also need to replace the black satin vinyl on the chrome trim because that got screwed too.

Kind of a blessing in disguise that I need to re-tint because I want to go back to 20% on the fronts anyway. Texas heat is no joke.

last pic shows the life of a modifier lol... there are more scratches than that

Re: My mods

Thanks for the info. Had the pass front replaced under warranty already. Seemed outrageous what they told me the cost was. Also, they screwed the install up, twice. They also said they had to remove the window to do this...? Seemed a little much, but didn't see you having to do that. Def want to change the chrome to body color too. Thanks

for the front door handles, unfortunately the glass does need to be removed. i tried to figure out a way not to but it's just not possible.

that is another reason i did not want to take it to somebody, afraid they would mess it up and i would have to go back.

see i messed up the tint on my driver side window putting the glass back in. also messed up the black vinyl that i put on the chrome trim. at least i know i did it and can't be mad at anyone.

I already had my windows re-tinted on monday and this weekend i'll replace the black vinyl i messed up.

also got these in the mail today. going to end up changing the front badge to black and i think i'll put the color matching hemi badge on the lift gate.

Where did you get that HEMI badge?? I've been looking for one forever and that is exactly what I want!
