Hi everyone!

So I just upgraded to a 2020 5.7 RT a couple weeks ago. I came from a 2018 Pitch Black SXT Blacktop that unfortunately lost in an accident. All is well though!:) Now I got the new color for 2020 which is Frostbite and is an amazing color! A few things I miss from the SXT is the blacked out badges, grill, and spoiler. Wheels on this new one are not bad at all IMO. looking at the pictures here, do you think it will look good if I were black out the spoiler, grill, and badges and keep the wheels untouched? Another new thing for 2020 is the hemi badge has a classic look to it. Hemi is more spaced out like H E M I. I was thinking of putting a 345 badge on top. Last thing I was thinking of doing was either a matte black dual stripes or black out the hood only. What is everyone's thoughts? Thanks!

Congrats. Beautiful looking ride.

Personally, I would remove the "block" Challenger badge on the grill, and leave the rest alone.

While I like the blacked out grill, the satin surrounds just look right to me.

Best of luck deciding. It'll look good either way with that great color.

I like the blacked out grille surrounds, and spoiler. But as much as I am a Black Guy, with that look I like the red R/T badge, or no badges at all

My Wife's 2020 G/T AWD has the black top package, hers is Frostbite, I am not a fan of the blacked out grille and badges but, she loves it, that is all that matters. Here's a pic. of my Challenger, my dad's Charger and my Wife's Challenger. This pic got me thinking about upgrading my 2017 Cherokee work beater to a white 2020 G/T but sometimes I need to buy things that won't fit in a Challenger and I got rid of a car because 4 was too many to shuffle around.

Personally, I'm tired of seeing all the blacked out trim, body parts, etc. And I never liked black or dark wheels. Beautiful color, I'd leave it exactly as it is - but without the yellow protectors on the splitter. But you know what opinions are worth.....

very nice pic man!! Dodge family! ;) I‘m thinking I’ll just black out the silver rings on the grill and leave the Challenger and RT badge stock. Well maybe I’ll swap the Challenger block badge to the fancy script badge lol.

Meh each it’s on, blacktop package not only gives you the black grill but black gas lid and black interior accents, I personally hate Chrome On my sports car, on my luxury cars yes chrome all the way,

My rear tail light are blacked out so the front is also blacked out to match

I plan on doing the same to my F8 Green R/T. Definitely going to change the chrome fuel door to black and the HEMI fender badges to black. I'm debating the front Challenger and R/T badges, spoiler and rear DODGE badge. Maybe remove the DODGE altogether...

I think black out or lighter trims is fine , I like both depending on the color and how the car is optioned.
I like the look of the T/A and Shaker packages but prefer paint over wraps or decals. I just see myself freaking out if the decal or wrap starts looking bad. Paint I can correct polish and protect.

I definitely like the blacked out trim on mine. I think those wheels will stand out more since normally people match their black trim with black wheels.

I switched to the blacktop R/T. I like it better than the red R/T. But I kept the chrome script as the blacktop script is too dark.

The black grill is nice too.

Maybe keep your spoiler Frostbite though.
