    Dodge has changed the color of the splitter guards, from yellow to hot pink, to discourage their use. These plastic guards are supposed to protect the splitter during transit and are to be removed by the dealer.

    Regardless of the color, there will be a crap load of folks who will keep them on, and there will be a bunch looking for them

    In the early years of production, Dodge would just provide warnings of low clearance.

    My 2009 SRT came with a mirror-mounted Caution Tag and a welcome placard stating under "Body & Exterior":

    "Fascias and Ground Effects- this vehicle has a unique exterior appearance which includes SRT unique fascias and ground effects. These exterior components define the style and appearance of your new vehicle. They also cause a lower approach angle in front of the vehicle and reduced ground clearance. due to lower ground clearance, driving your vehicle up steep driveways, approach ramps, or near parking blocks may cause damage to the front fascia and ground effects. Caution should be taken when driving through water or snow more than 4 inches deep to avoid any potential damage to your vehicle."

    Watch someone will get a supply of these and start hydro dipping them. Carbon fiber will be the number one seller and they will be advertised at a ridiculous price. It will be a trend with the YouTube hacks, you heard it here first. Lol
