The chrome logo on the center cap was bothering me—a lot. I had my friend paint the logo a bright red to match up to the Brembo calipers. He removed the center caps, then separated the cap & painted the inner center (which includes the logo). This allowed a perfect paint application without having to tape off the outside cap.

I think it looks awesome! This is how the center caps should have came from the factory. The weather is crappy out, so I can’t get some nice cleaned up photos, but you get the idea.

My tint guy is ordering some dark tint to cover up the front side markers, just waiting on him to get it

Did the red covers come stock?

Red covers for the brakes? Those aren’t covers, that’s a $395 option to have the calipers painted red from the factory but you need to have the Tow N Go package in order to have them red.

The one thing I'd change if possible is...... See those orange turn signals on the front wheel arch? I wish those could have a smoked appearance to them. The orange and red combination clashes.

That’s the $395 option for red Brembos on the T&G package.

So wait hold up I didn't notice this before, so if you order a 2021 R/T Tow n Go package you actually get "SRT" logos on the calipers? I knew that you got the bigger Brembo calipers just like my Scat Pack has the bigger Brembo brakes that are on the Hellcat, but my Scat Packs Brembos dont have an "SRT" logo on them they have the "Brembo" logo because my Scat Pack is an R/T not an "SRT". Why would Dodge want to upbadge the calipers weird if you ask me.

Yes, I mentioned in my post at the bottom that my tint guy is ordering the dark tint for the sidemarkers.

Looks great! I was thinking about doing this too. Mine is exact twin of yours on the outside, I'm finally picking it up today after 4 months of waiting. I also got a roll of tint to do the front side markers

You are correct. The standard Brembos are black with the brembo logo on the Tow N Go package. The red calipers are $395 and say on the window sticker "Red Brembo Brakes with SRT Performance Pads". Only the red calipers say SRT on them, which I don't like either.

I just picked up my with 2021 R/T with Tow N Go last week .

I've been looking for replacement side marker lenses as two tint shops told me I couldn't have them tinted. Please post pictures after you tint the markers.

And you can tint them , I did but I used the charger side marker tint from luxe. It fits almost perfect with minor cutting. I have a thread about it in the appearance section. Check it out. I’ve used them on all chargers in the past. They don’t have pre cut ones yet for the 21 dd but the non wb charger ones are almost perfect . Just cut a tiny bit off the top. I’ll put the link later to my thread. No need to change to LEd lights when you can just add the tint.

Which shade did you go with for your Durango?

When I went to look at the Durango, I was kind of shocked that the calipers have SRT on them. I don’t like it because I don’t have a SRT obviously. I feel like one of those nerds who put badges on vehicles to look cool.

I sent a message to Diode Dynamics asking them if the Charger LED side markers work on the Durango. They said no but added that they haven’t had a ‘21 Durango to check. Part of me thinks that FCA didn‘t spend the money to tool up a new side marker for the Durango & that they used the “parts bin” for those.......
