Need Strut Cover Pics Please

Can someone take some pics of the strut cover in the engine bay? I'm looking for pics of the cover front and back, and also the area of the tower it covers along the strut bolts/nuts.

I ordered some Challenger strut covers from Billet Tech on the off chance I can use them on my 2012 Jeep SRT8. The Jeep doesn't come with any covers whereas I believe the challenger has black caps from the factory. I'm just trying to see if there are any difference under the cap from my Jeep.

Has anyone installed the BT strut covers? Any pics of them installed and how they attach?

Thanks

Yes. When I was looking online the stock pics show a black cover whereas my Jeep doesn't come with anything. I am trying to see what's beneath the cover and if it is similar to my Jeep. How do the covers mount?

Are the covers the same for the 6.1 and 6.4 engine bays? I ordered the parts from the 392 listings.

I believe the only difference is the Tower Strut Brace you have. These ones from BT also fit applications w/o brace.

The ones from BT are treaded. Big one screws right on. The small ones with the brace need to be siliconed on. I used blue RTV since it can handle a little more heat than the normal silicone adhesive.
