I recently came upon a 2010 Challenger SXT for a price that I couldn't resist. It needed work, so I took it under my wing to breathe new life into it. All the work was done by myself and a close friend.



*DISCLOSURE* I realize that this is "only" a V6 and I want to disclose that in no way will I be up-badging this car, merely modifying it to my liking, to have a one-of-a-kind vehicle locally. Simple.



With that, I'll begin. I wanted to convert the front-end of this 2010 to the updated look of the 2015 Hellcat. This was to be a hood and fascia swap. After much back-and-forth to my local dealer, I was finally able to complete this conversion yesterday.







The swap is pretty straightforward. The only kink is the wiring for the headlights and side markers. Thanks to member Hellsfire for pointing me in the right direction for the wiring information for the 2015 headlights. I would also like to thank NATE @ The Retrofit Source for all of his incredible service. For pre-2015 vehicles, none of the existing headlight/parking lamp connectors are compatible with the 2015 headlights. Nate fabricated a custom harness with the correct connectors, saving me the $550+ to buy a new HDLP harness from Dodge. It was as simple as mounting the control box then hooking up power and grounds. Done.

Love what you've done. It looks like a de-badged 15 or 16.

Great job and thanks for being helpful by posting all of the part numbers and contact information!

You get cool points in my book (not that it means anything).

How much do you have in this?


Sent from AutoGuide.com Free App
Hood/Accessories - $950-1000
Fascia/Accessories - $750-800
Headlights - $1350
Wiring - $200

These are roundabout figures. I could get an exact figure, but I can tell you that the price of hellcat parts have been fluctuating like mad around the country.

Thanks everyone for all the kind words!

I did purchase enough paint & supplies to do the rear, but for now, I'm going to enjoy my "hybrid" the way it is...at least until some definitive info comes about changing to the 2015 tails!

I just want front bumper. Anyway of keeping older lighting with front fascia
Negative, at least not without hacking your upper radiator support. I read on here that someone has done it, but never found any pics. The older light's shape won't allow the fascia to sit flush, or even get close.

yes you can with out any problems at all. you just have to make a small notch to lower the headlights about a 1/8 inch. this is done with a small notch in the core support. about 10 min worth of work.
i have a pic of this on my computer but it keeps telling me that it is to large to post and i dont know how to shrink it down

Can anyone point me into the direction of getting the kit to install the 2015 headlights like the one previous mentioned in this thread? Anything on this would be helpful. Thanks
