Hey, guys. Adam here with AmericanMuscle.com. And today we're taking a quick look at and installing the Hi-Flow Front End Mask available for the '08 and newer Challenger. Very simply put, you should be checking this out if you're looking to protect the majority of your front end from bugs. If you're taking a lot of road trips to rural counties throughout the United States, or if you're going on long road trips, or if you just live in the sticks, you're going to run into a lot of bugs out on the road that you don't want gunking up your front end, leaving it really messy, really dirty and pretty unattractive and kind of gross to be honest. This front end mask is a breathable synthetic stretch fabric, almost like an athletic material that stretches around your front end from wheel-well to wheel-well and straps up under the hood to add some protection to your front, upper grille, lower grille, and bumper, depending on your trim package. Now, this guy here does leave some of the headlights open, so it doesn't hinder any of the light output. But if you do have the newer model headlights that have the cold air intake insert, you still get airflow going straight through. After all, it is still is a Hi-Flow mask. It's not going to completely block off the airflow going through your grille to cool down your engine temps. It is still going to leave all of that open. The mask itself is going to catch all those little bugs from gunking up on your paint, making it a lot easier to clean your vehicle, and honestly, it's going to leave you not having to clean it as often. Definitely useful for the guys in rural areas.Now, if you have an aftermarket chin splitter or something that's a little bit more aggressive that comes out farther at the bottom of the front end, the bottom of the actual mask itself is supposed to wrap underneath of it with a Velcro strip. If you have something that extends out a little bit farther, you may be unable to wrap it around. In which case, I'd recommend just velcroing it to the top of your chin splitter to make sure the front end at the bottom is being stuck down. The price tag for this comes in right around 200 bucks. And again, it's a really high-quality material that's not as susceptible to rips as some of the other options out there and it's extremely easy to install. One out of three wrenches on our difficult to meter for this one. It'll take you about 20 minutes from start to finish. Let's get to it.Tools using the install included an impact gun, 10-millimeter deep socket, panel removal tool, Phillips head screwdriver, and an alcohol wipe. First up here, we got to take out the three little push pin clips inside of our wheel well. You may have four, one at the bottom. Ours is missing one. So we're gonna take those guys off and then if your car is equipped with this, we're going to pop that off as well. Grab a panel removal tool, and we're just gonna start pulling these guys out. Pull the center section first, go up underneath and it comes out in one piece.Next, if you have this, you're gonna take a 10-millimeter socket and remove this one bolt and pull this guy straight off. If you don't have this guy, you can skip onto the next step. Up at the top where that first pushpin clip was, you're gonna put this unit clip in instead, and it's gonna go right around here, right on the bumper and line up threads there. You're gonna do the same thing for the one all the way at the bottom. Do the same thing down here at the bottom. It's a little tougher to get to because of the tire, but I'm gonna snap this guy on, and there you go. All right. So if you had that mudflap like we did, you're going to have to take that guy off. It can no longer be used with your mask. It's going to be in the way. So we're just going to leave it off, take those pushpin clips for the center two and we're gonna pop those back into position. Now you're not gonna reuse the ones at the top and bottom because we're gonna use the Phillips head screws and snaps included in the kit to hold the mask down. So at this point, you can grab that Phillips head screw that has the snap button top, grab your Phillips head screwdriver, and screw them into the unit clips we just installed. So now this guy is going to help hold the fender on as well as the actual mask. So do that to the bottom as well.All right. With those guys tightened down, we can snap our mask on and then do the same thing on the other side. All right. So now you can grab the driver's side. You want to make sure you're grabbing the right side of the mask and you're gonna snap those on top. And this guy is going to be a bit of a stretch, but you gonna stretch it down to the bottom, snap it on there. Again, repeat that preparation process on the other side and we're going to pull us over and snap it in. So we've got it snapped in on the driver's side. I'm gonna wrap this guy all the way around and snap it into the passenger. The front doesn't have to be perfect just yet, but let's snap it in place, and then we can go from there. So wrap it around. It's a little tight, but you want to make sure it's really snug and then snap it in top and bottom. Now we can focus on the top. Next, we pop the hood, and you're gonna pull this all the way up and grab the strings and loop it onto the bump stop here under the hood. That's gonna hold it on there. Do the same thing on both sides.Now underneath center here is a little strip of Velcro, and this is gonna snap right underneath your belly pan or underneath the front chin spoiler. Now, before we stick on the Velcro retainer, you want to grab some alcohol wipes or soap and water or something, and we're just gonna clean off that area to make sure it's free of all dirt and dust. Definitely an important step for that 3m to get a good bond. Once you have that cleaned up, grabbed the Velcro included in the kit with the hardware. Try to get it right there in the middle. And you want to make sure it's back a little bit, so not straight up on the front of the lip. Apply that, pull the Velcro through, and clip it in. And you're good to go.That's gonna wrap up my review and install for the Hi-Flow Front End Mask available for the '08 and newer Challenger, perfect for the guys looking to keep the dead bugs off the front end of their vehicle, keeping it a little bit nicer and cleaner while still allowing airflow to get through the engine bay.
