"Don't fix what isn't broken" IMO, body wise, the Challenger is spot on. A rear diffuser wouldn't be that bad though..

The reason we have a lot less options compared to say a mustang or camaro, is that the Challenger is a much smaller market, it's outsold by both cars, so from a business standpoint, it's more economical to produce an aftermarket for say, a mustang, rather than a Challenger.

but you could be one of the only options in the challenger market as opposed to splitting the mustang market 10 ways.

I agree, most body kits detract from the appearance. That said I do wish there was more available to individualize challengers. Challenger owners used to complain that mustangs all look alike, now there are alot of challengers around and going to a modern mopar event is like visiting a car lot. Mine was blacked out, had custom wheels and paint was lowered etc when I bought it. At first I wasn't sure about the customizing, but now that there are so many challengers around I'm glad it has them

the problem with any kits is the cost, development, tooling etc is extremely expensive, so much so, that to most manufacturer the Challenger is simply not a viable vehicle, not enough of them to quarrantee break even or success, hence lots more available for the Mustangs, Camaros, Civics, etc

a manufacturer we are working with are developing some really cool stuff for Chargers, 3 pieces rear spoiler, door pockets, new front fascia, etc, in their mind, simply so much more of those vehicles that to reach a breakeven point is going to be simply much easyer and from a financial stand point a wise move

I really think dodge hit a home run with the looks of the challenger and there is not much out there because it would be hard to improve the looks unlike the new mustangs or camaros. I do like both of them but they can look great with something like an elenor kit or supersnake kit. the camaro can also look better. only thing to do to a challenger is to maybe lower it with a nice set of wheels but changing the looks is not needed.
