Mopar WK body kit vs. srt8 side skirts

I know the mopar kit comes with the front air dam. But Are the side pieces the same as the srt8? I can't tell in the pictures.

Re: Mopar WK body kit vs. srt8 side skirts

The side skirts (rocker panels) are the same as SRT. The overland had the larado and limited rockers but painted.

Re: Mopar WK body kit vs. srt8 side skirts

I could be wrong but I thought the sideskirts are the same between the kit and thre SRT stock. But just look like there lower due to the lower suspension of the SRT.

Re: Mopar WK body kit vs. srt8 side skirts

What Scott said. There's only 2 the larado (Painted on the Overland trim models) and the SRT/Moparwhich come down lower to the ground.

Re: Mopar WK body kit vs. srt8 side skirts

Where does the price difference come from then? the body kit is 650 for three pieces and the srt8 rocker panels are listed for over 700??

Re: Mopar WK body kit vs. srt8 side skirts

After I got my Mopar body kit I have been telling people to buy the whole kit instead of the SRT side skirts because it comes out cheaper for some reason. The side skirts are the exact same, I have been parked next to a few SRT's, and they are the exact same skirts. Get them already painted if you can, much cheaper than having a shop paint them, I paid $300 to have my 3 piece primed kit painted Brilliant Black Crystal.

Re: Mopar WK body kit vs. srt8 side skirts

I have to admit, getting the whole Mopar kit the front air dam painted does make the car look much better. The shape is only a slight difference, but with it being painted to match the car and at the sides it flares out a little more than stock is cool. Before you buy either kit just do a cost comparison, remember if you get the primed kit it has to be painted which raises the final price, unless you paint it yourself which I would do now since I have a good compressor and a good paint gun.

Re: Mopar WK body kit vs. srt8 side skirts

Did they sell WK's with the Mopar kit already installed? About a month ago I saw an older woman in silver WK with the mopar kit on it, and I doubt she went out and bought it aftermarket since nothing else was done to the car. To me it stood right out with the wider painted side skirts.
