Not sure what piece you are referring to. "Scuff guard" might be the rear bumper fascia top cap? If so, the 300C piece will work. They just didn't make chrome ones for the SRT cars...those were all body color.

Yes that's what I mean...they made them body color?...I want something on my rear bumper to protect it from things going in and out of my trunk...

What I did with mine was put 3M clear bra shield over the top of the rear fascia...that saved it from stuff going in and out of the trunk.

Scuff guard is really a misnomer for that piece. While it will save your bumper from scuffs, the piece itself is scuffed VERY easily, and can't be buffed out like your bumper can. It's made of plastic, so it's pretty weak - in my opinion.

^^^^ So true ^^^^

That's why I put the clear bra on it.

I've also seen some aftermarket "scuff guards" which were a form of mat affixed to the net posts inside the trunk and rolled out to cover the area before you load.

I agree with you. Saw a 300 in the parking lot and the chrome was all scuffed up. Looked like the guy dragged a brick across it. Looked horrible. I like the chrome on mine, and am REAL careful when putting anything - which is not often - in my trunk.

Thanks guys see my idea is i dont want it chrome..being my 300 is all blacked out..i was going to plastic dip it black..it gets scuffed touch it up again...my bumper already has a few scuffs in it from the previous owner so instead of getting the whole bumper re-sprayed...i was thinking of using that...yrs ago i bought from mopar the one that fit the magnum i had it was like a hard black rubber piece i dont think they make that for the 300 unless the magnum one fits???

The Magnum one does not fit so that's why I added the clear bra to that top cap on the rear bumper fascia.

All SRT rear bumper caps are body colored.

Check with an online authorized MOPAR parts seller, such as airparkcjd on eBay.

Dealers can also get it for you. In fact, Airpark CJDR is a dealer in Scottsdale, AZ who beats the heck outta my local dealer on parts prices, even with freight costs factored in.
