One thing you’re going to do to a muscle car is build it – just like you’d work to build human muscle. With a car like the third-generation Challenger (2008-2018), there are a lot of things you can do to improve performance and appearance. The aftermarket is jam packed with all sorts of mods that make this a confusing topic for many to address. It’s easy to be left wondering where to start. Good places to begin are the common areas addressed by other owners. Whether it’s for a personal touch, performance benefits or appearance we are going to take a look at the top five areas accessorized on Challengers. We’ll dive into each and discuss the benefits of these mods and why you should be considering them for your personal car.

Top 5 Mods for 2009-2014 Challengers

Challenger Carbon Fiber Parts 

Carbon fiber parts are a great way to start cutting weight off of any vehicle. Steel parts quickly add up and can start to hold back a car, despite the amount of power it can produce. Challengers aren’t exactly light cars but produce plenty of power. Hoods, fenders, and even interior accessories can easily be swapped out for OE quality parts made of carbon fiber which is much lighter than metals and even plastics that make up these vehicles.

Every pound shaved off the vehicle allows each pony under the hood to do its job better. Without having to crack an engine open carbon fiber parts are a great way to help a Challenger move much faster. 

Benefits of Carbon Fiber Parts: 

  • OE grade lightweight parts
  • Increased power to weight ratio

Challenger Tail Light Overlays, Smoked, LEDs, & More

It seems that regardless of the vehicle and which segment it falls under, tail lights are a focal point of modifications. This is true for multiple reasons. For starters, brighter taillights, such as LED setups, are much more visible to other drivers. Next, it’s a great way to personalize the look of your car. You have to remember that with a car like the Challenger a lot of people are going to be staring at your taillights. So, smoke overlays, LED upgrades, and so forth, are the perfect way to give them something pleasant to look at as you pull away.

Benefits of Tail Light Upgrades:

  • Increased visibility to other drivers
  • Personalized look

Challenger Cold Air Intakes

This is another area commonly visited by builders everywhere with all sorts of vehicles. Cold air intakes bring a lot to the table for those looking for an edge on performance and economy. The factory air intake systems in Challengers can be a bit restricting.

In all cases, the engine needs to have as much air available to it as possible so opening up the tubing and the addition of a high flow filter will allow it to draw in as much air as possible. Additionally, cold air is denser and can contain more oxygen which is a key element for the combustion stroke.

Not only does this produce more power but it also helps an engine run more efficiently making for better fuel economy. Best of all, this is a cheap upgrade that can be done in minutes.

Benefits of Cold Air Intakes:

  • Increased Power
  • Increased Efficiency
  • Increase Fuel Economy

Protecting Your Challenger's Interior with Floor Mats & Seat Covers

The interior of the Challenger is where you’ll be spending most of your time with these cars. Sure, we can all sit and stare for hours at the beauty of this beast but the real enjoyment comes from driving them; spilling that coffee on those beautiful seats or even staining the carpet is a great way to ruin that experience though.

So, it really is no surprise that this is an area commonly accessorized by owners of Challengers. Not only do floor mats and seat covers add protection against spills and other unfortunate events, they are also a great way to add a personal touch to the vehicle.

The installation process takes only a few seconds to minutes as well and it won’t break the bank. It’s really a no brainer to add covers and mats. It’s also worth knowing that a sound interior will help protect the resale value in the event that you decide to part ways with your Challenger.

Benefits of Seat Covers & Floor Mats:

  • Added protection of interior components
  • Personalized look
  • Protected resale value

Challenger Sub-model Conversion Parts

Dodge has been pounding the market with some of the most appealing trim packages the market has ever seen. This is both true aesthetically and in terms of performance. The facts are, though, that they aren’t always available to or even affordable for buyers in the time they bought their car. It always sucks to get left out of clubs, like the Scat Pack, but that doesn’t mean one can’t join later on.

Sub-model conversion parts are a great way for one to get the look and feel of the Challenger they want, or wanted, without having to trade up. Sure, slapping Hemi stickers on a V6 might get you in trouble with Mopar people, but that isn’t always the intention. Scat Pack badging, TA stripping, and even wheel and tire packages to match popular sub-models are modifications commonly made to these cars.

Sure, it might not truly be a Scat Pack or TA car from the factory but this is a great way to get that super stylish look you’ve been dreaming of.

Benefits of Sub-model Conversion Parts:

  • Give the look of the model you want
  • More cost effective than investing in a higher trim package from the dealer
