Default Air dams

I have an 03 GT.
I like the Xenon lower front air dam but it won't fit the GT.
Outside of the Mopar, si there a air dam that will fit the GT?
Can you purchase the Mopar ground effects as individual pieces?
Thanks.

As I understand it the Bruiser, Crusher and "Mild" kits will all fit the '03 GT's. But you do have to "talk" to 'em a little bit. I've been looking them over as well but haven't decided on one. Check out this fella's '03 for pics of the Crusher test fit and after paint:

From what I've read the Crusher is an easier install as it straight out replaces the fascia. The Bruiser on the other hand has to go over the existing fascia which is where the fit issues come into it.

You can also look into these: http://www.trickcruiser.com/frontends.html

www.trickcruiser.com has one that fits either. for the GT they sell a small bracket which I understand works well.

Here's the page for frontends which shows it on a GT and an NA.

At the moment i don't want to replace the fascia. I spoke to the guy at trickcruisers about his kits.
I really wanted to enhance the look of the fascia without overtly chnaging it's look.
It seems the only subtle job is the Mopar kit, which I like but which is a big $$ bite.
I am not interested in the crusher although I do like it better than the bruiser, at least for my needs.

ah okay, didn't realize that's what you were looking to do. Unfortunately aside from the Mopar kit (which I agree is severely overpriced for what it does) and the Xenon "Mild" cover you're not gonna find anything. There's always the APC kits, they keep roughly the same look but alter the lines a bit, they've gotten pretty mixed reviews though so I'd talk directly to someone that's installed it before I threw down my cash for one.

There is a guy that just got the APC front end put on their DC2 over on pt entusiest board. Looks really nice by the pictures but I am not for sure how the install would be and if it covers any of the intercooler.

Best thing about the Mopar kit is you can get 'em in some of the factory colors. Will save ya on the paint. I believe it mounts with a few screws and 3M adhesive pads. Saw someone say they added a couple extra screws just for kicks. There isn't really much to 'em so it shouldn't take alot to keep 'em in place.
