One of the biggest things people talk about with the Dodge Challenger is the overall weight. Lower the weight of your Challenger with the light weight Anderson Composites Carbon Fiber Hood. It is easy to replace your current hood, you will be using the factory hardware to install your new Carbon Fiber hood.

I wonder what the weight savings is? We have aluminum hoods already.

I do not have the numbers for the Challenger hood but the 2017 Camaro COPO hood weighs 18.8 lbs and the ZL1 hood weighs 15.5 lbs.
So my guess is there are a few lbs that the carbon fiber hood will take off of your car even with an aluminum hood to start with.

ZL1 Hood 15.5 lbs


COPO Hood 18.8 lbs

It's a beautiful looking hood but be aware..... My son obtained an Anderson hood for his 2012 Challenger. The clear coating is very thick and brittle around the washer nozzle openings. The openings are too small for the OEM parts to snap back in even with proper prep and can result in the clear chipping around the opening. Anderson's customer service (based on one phone call with no physical inspection) "firmly stood behind" their position that the professional installer did not properly install the washer nozzles.

The installation was eventually completed satisfactorily but just be aware that extreme care should be taken with washer nozzle installation.
