I'm thinking about chopping out the crosshairs in my front bumper. I'm still up in the air on this idea, so give me your input. I did a quick photoshop of my car with them removed. check it.

I like it a LOT with the crosshairs removed. Do lots of SRT-4 guys do this? It seem slike a good idea, changes the face of the car in a really good way IMO.

edit: reminds me of when DSM-ers cut out a portion of their front bumper for the i/c, only prettier.

there are a few guys that have done this and i've always had the idea to do it after I got my big frontmount. it'll look downright evil with some eyelids..

here's an example.

i know a guy with a red one with big front mount and no crosshairs, it doesnt look bad, but personally i dont like it just not my style, i think it looks better with it.

Bryan, Not really, because the cross hair itself is plastic. lol

The crosshairs serve no purpose other than looks. Wish I could just try it with them out for a day and put them back on, but this is a one way street. :confused:

is that a CCA frontmount?
it's the Extreme Turbo Systems racing intercooler

i don't like the look of the crosshairs, if it were me, I'd buy a used front clip and modifiy it, then keep your stock one for backup...a little more expensive, but better if you want to revert back to stock

the only problem is the notch that its gonna leave.. either gonna be ugly up close or cost a bit to get it filled in and painted by a body shop

leave the bumper alone! Your car looks so sick bro, without it it just looks to open, i def vote for eyelids...it gives the car an agressive look...remember this one bro...Black ownz!! (so so true)

Remove the crosshairs but paint just the ends of the intercooler black.

theres an idea, i wonder how that would work, photoshop perhaps?
And as for having no grill i drive without it and my intercooler has been fine for about a month now daily driving(knock on wood)

i like it without them but with a blackd out i/c also if you do decide to paint it make sure u used anodized paint. if not any other paint will hold heat
