Default OEM Ground Effects!

Bought the OEM Ground Effects from 'Wyckof'for my 01, really nice quality! Question is, before I go all over town, can anyone give me an idea how much $ we're talking to have them painted and installed. I'm thinking of taking them to a dealer (know the price is higher) for the install....any help?

Which ones. the flat panels or the newer rakish ones?
You could prolly install them yourself, but I would bet on 300 if you had rocker panels and front and rears done.

PTGT REDMAN...THANKS FOR THE INFO. I WENT WITH THE FLAT SIDES. I REALLY THOUGHT ABOUT DOING THE INSTALL, BUT I WOULD HAVE TO GET RAMPS, JACKS, ETC.

np. did mine in my garage. Even with ramps (35 dollars for the plastic rhino ramps at Pep Boys), could not bolt on the rocker panel tabs under the car.
Still, only need a rivet driver (16-) and some rivets (2-3 bucks)
Few hours in the garage and was done. No prior experience. Hey at least if you screw it up, you can only be angry at yourself. pay someone else to hack it up then you get agry at everyone.

Only needed rivets??? The instructions with my new Mopar Hot Body Kit required using a paper template to cut 4 slots (both the front and rear facias) for a tab on the backside of the front air dams and rear spats to fit into, which are then clipped from the backside of the panel. Then drilling holes for pop rivets down the side panels and lining everything up for 3M tape application. And, you definately need ramps or a lift to get the car off the ground to do this install. An extra set of hands when lining up the side panels helps, too.

It looked like a lot of work to me and I'm a bit mechanically challenged. So, I took my 2004 DC3GT down to the dealer for the installation. Charged me $187.50, and it took them a lot longer than this standard 2.5 hour labor charge to get it right. Looks great, though and if the dealer messed it up, they'd pay to correct it. Was worth the money to me.
