2019 Widebody or T/A

Thinking about picking up a new scatpack. Which package would you fine people get? The widebody gets the fenders, suspension, bigger wheels/tires for 6k. The T/A gets the satin black roof/hood/trunk, mopar CAI, black grill, open headlight for air flow for 3.5k. Does the widebody get the open headlight also? They advertise it on the TA package but I am not sure if it comes on all the scatpacks. I am a big fan of the black top of the TA, but love the widebody look. I figured I could get my hood wrapped but from the factory, just wondering everyone's opinions!

I'd get the wide body in an instant over the T/A! I've seen a couple of them in person and they look Fantastic! The square 305 tires all the way around make them look Sinister and Mean!

If we didn't already have Ruby (our 2015 SRT 392), I'd get a widebody Scat Pack!


My advice is to go to your dealer and walk around, sit in and drive them both and see which one makes your heart beat faster. Good Luck!

Lot's of variety available now. When I ordered my '16 SP, the TA and WB options weren't offered.

I went with the base SP, and added TA style striping. Pics in my Garage Section. I've been very pleased in every way.

If I was ordering today, I would highly consider the WB, even though I don't track. I would want to test drive one though, to see how the ride quality is.

Might consider the factory TA package, if I didn't like the ride. Not nuts about the trunk/top/hood all being black, but that's just me.

Other TA features are nice, but again, not a must have for me.

Bottom line, personal choice, and best of luck.

I was at my dealer on Monday and they had a few WB Scat Pack. I'm not a fan of the flares but love the wider wheels. As said, it's a matter of choice. To each their own. There's a red WB in the background. They also had one in White.

If I were to be given a free wide body, the first thing I would do, would be to dive it to a dealer and trade it in on a non- wide body.

All the Challengers have the headlight openings now. The T/A advertises the illuminated air catcher headlamps, they are lit up and say T/A. That's different than just the open headlights.

If you get the WB, you will want to put PPF on the front of the flares and prob lower door and fenders at a MINIMUM. From everything Ive read on the WB HC, they take a beating from rocks and stuff.

Id want to drive the new Scat WB before Id buy. I DO like the ida of the 305s all around and the stiffer sway bars on the 19 Scat. Dont know if they T/A gets the bars as well or not.

IF I went SP, Id get the 3 mode suspension as IMO its better than the T/A. In my 15 HC I felt Street mode was more comfortable in every day driving and SPORT was better in the twisties than my 18 T/A.
