Question on lower front valence for WK2

Hey guys, I've been considering several options for when I can afford it...Theres an aftermarket SRT style body kit which isn't crazy expensive, but it doesnt come with the fender flares. Add the flares in and it's nearly another grand! Crazy.

So what I've been contemplating lately is taking a stock lower front valence and either customizing with fiberglass or something similar. Today I was just searching for pictures of the 2017 Charger SRT front end to see if I could get some ideas of how to make curves swoop and actually look cool.

I ran across the two pictures below and was wondering if anyone knows if this is a stock front end for a particular model (or models made in another country maybe?) or is this a custom piece? This is sort of what Im looking for - not another SRT knock off and not just regular stock pieces painted to match.

If you guys know anything about this, I'd love to hear!

Thanks!

Brandon you'll have to make your own....


The one in the picture is a "one off" made for the "Mopar lowrider Jeep".

Here is a link to a post where they debuted Last call for the Black Ops Bumper Group Buy!!!

Back in 2013 Black Ops Autoworks was inspired by that lower valance and designed his own.

The finished product came out great but did not meet his standards and they were liquidated.

I think the last few sold recently.

Here is a pic of the results

Re: Question on lower front valence for WK2

Check out ebay item number 141878424079. I think he would work out a deal for just the front piece. I have one and really like it. Installs over the black valance with doubled sided tape and a few screws. The back valance and side skirts look horrible but I worked out a deal for just the front piece. I had it for about 2 years now and no issues. Just some stone chips that I touched up. Nice alternative and unique.

Re: Question on lower front valence for WK2

I ran across this one in my searches recently too but outside of eBay I cant find this kit anywhere else. I thought the same thing, front seems kinda cool, but would be slightly cooler if it was recessed in to fit more flushly with the bumper cover. The side skirts and rear piece makes me think Tokyo Drift, so nah not so much. Im much more into smoothing things down, making it more subtle, not so obnoxious. If Duraflex would make the fender flares for their SRT style kit, I may be onboard with that, but would prefer something slightly different.
