    Those definitely look great, I may need to get a set when they are available to the rest of us

    I manage to break at least one fender clip every time I pop a fender off... Wish someone would sell them in bulk packs for a better price then I've found them.

    LOL - I feel your pain. I get lucky some times but like you, I break at least one more times than not. I've bought these clips https://amzn.to/321XK0Z

    They do require some modification of the fender to make work - essentially, widen the center hole a bit but otherwise, they work fine and cost a lot less than Mopar

    LOL - I really love how factory these DRL's look and that I can keep most of the inner fender liners too

    Thanks! I was super impressed with what I saw at SEMA the last couple of years but wasn't sure how they'd look once they were in production. I have to say, I really am super happy with how they look. Totally factory.
