    I am looking for someone who may have the dimensions of the Rocker Panels for this year on the GTX. Long shot I know, but there is a CNC place here than can make them if I can provide them the dimensions - a CAD drawing would be awesome. Anyone?

    I don't know why MaMopar would care at this point??? I just need a pair, and much like the louvers I need, they aren't really out there for sale :(

    Patten rights on anything reproduced for resale to exact dimensions. If that were not the case Mopar parts would still be plentiful and reasonable.
    I understand your thought but it treads a fine line.

      I contacted him a few weeks back and he wasn't making any. He had an original set that he wanted $2000 for and unfortunately I couldn't swing that kind of money.

      Back to the rocker mouldings anyone have any ideas as how to get around patten infringement?
      This is going to be more combine place with the advancement of 3D scaming and printing. Small metal and plastic parts on demand.

      I find it hard to believe that there is a patent on these mouldings. Most patents are only good for a certain number of years, and if there a is a patent, I would certainly go look it up and get the specs off of it :)

      Were you looking for the big molding, along the bottom of the doors and not the wheel well molding, right?

      Yes the finned 1 year only moldings. I have only seen 1 set on ebay in the past 2 years and thankfully I didn't get sniped on this set.

      Rock guards = dirt traps, moisture retainers and rust. But if you have got to have them you got to have them.
