Seems like many people like to "De-Badge" their vehicles but I'm going in the other direction! heh

Notified OEM Mopar Splash Guards I ordered are on the way. Front/Rear.






Along with a "Hemi 5.7L" badge that came on 2nd gen Durangos. The Citadel doesn't have anything denoting engine size.

Looks good Ron - waiting to see it next month.

You might want to take off the dealer sticker and dealer tag frame. Replace the tag frame with another plain (or Dodge) chrome one.

I have the 100,000 mile club frame if you want it for D-III

Thanks. I've ordered a couple of slim polished stainless license frames. I'll be peeling the dealer sticker off later today.



Right after installing the Nerf Bars on Durango II.

Hemi Font/Style doesn't match the rest of the lettering but at least it's chrome matching.

Need to clean up the Proximity Sensors in the rear bumper. Looks like crap with white paint. Can't believe the Dealer didn't take car of that before sale.

Durango III dropped off at the Dealer for Windshield replacement. They gave me a Grand Cherokee as a loaner.

Must be one of the lower trim levels of Grand Cherokee. Cloth Seats, V6, No Nav, 17" Wheels etc. Got 28 mpg @70 mph on the way home from the dealer. Not bad.

Doing a little research shows a year or two newer Jeep Grand Cherokee Limited with less miles and a V6 would've been around $4k more than Durango III. Not as well equipped and no 3rd row seating in the JGC. 3rd row seating wasn't high on my list of things to have but nearly all 3rd gen Durangos have them. That 28 mpg highway mileage with the V6 did get my attention. Acceleration is pretty good in the JGC. Might be a little more sluggish in a Durango as I think the Durango weighs more.

Enough of the Buyers Remorse! LOL! I'm good.

Splash Guards came in. Perusing the instructions and they call for drilling two holes each for the fronts and 3 for the rears! I'm not keen on that. Two other attachment points each are the removal of the splash shield push pin fasteners and replacing with captive clips and bolts. I'll try using just them on the fronts and see if it's going to be a sturdy enough mounting. If not....then break out the drill!

Damn AFE is fast on orders. Placed the order for the intake at 5:15 PM CST (3:15 PM PST) and got a notice from them that FedEx has picked up the order at 6:22 PM CST (4:22 PM PST). w00t. Scheduled Delivery on 8/20/19 so I'll have it for install at the meet!

Can't wait to run it on the highway and see if there's any kind of mpg improvement. I'll know Friday!
