I keep losing my chrome wheel caps and they are expensive to
replace - help!
We now sell the wheel cap that we have modified with a heavy duty aluminum ring
with rubber o-ring. It will never weaken! See them in our wheels
Hello! Love your store! Do I have to
jack up car to install front mud flaps?
You do not need to jack car up to install flap. It is possible to install with
wheel on but kind of hard to do. Best and easiest to take wheel off.
Hi, I can't seem to find the wheel jack
No jack or spare with car. It originally came with run-flat tires. Those
tires are no longer available. Best sign up with AAA.
My fuel gage doesn't seem to
run accurately - What should I do?
Your Chrysler dealership is best place to check it out. However, they do not
have a fuel pump if you need one - we do.
I recently purchased a 2001 Plymouth (Chrysler?) Prowler. (Orange) Not
sure if it's considered a Plymouth or a Chrysler? I understand that Chrysler
took over Plymouth in 2001, but then don't understand why my title says
The reason for my email is (your) site states there are 669 Orange and
345 Orange/Chrysler Prowlers?
I'm assuming (which I know what that does) that there are 669 Orange Plymouths,
and 345 Orange Chryslers, depending on when they were manufactured. Can you
Thank you so much.
A general rule of thumb is - If your rear bumper has Plymouth stamped in it – it
was built by Plymouth. If it has nothing on it – it was built by Chrysler.
the emblem that is on your hood is either a Plymouth or a
There are some exceptions. However, there is really no meaningful
difference between the two.
Where can I get front Prowler wheels new?
Chrysler doesn't have them any more. We bought the last of their stock
and have them. See our Wheels section.
I need a radiator fan for my Prowler but nobody sells them?
We now have the Prowler Radiator Fan and assembly made out of
aluminum. It is a direct fit just like the original.
Does Chrysler sell the front fender bracket separate from the
No sorry, you have to buy the whole fender.
Prowler Store - I am looking the speakers to replace mine that have died.
Where can I get them?
Those stock speakers and stereo system for that matter was discontinued by
Chrysler many years ago. It is now quite obsolete.
Your best bet is to
go down to your local stereo shop that does installs and buy the latest system.
It will also be much cheaper than stock.
I have a Prowler and the PCM
is not working properly and can not be repaired. Where can I buy one?
Chrysler does not make Prowler PCM's anymore.
Currently there are none "used" or rebuilt available anywhere.
TheProwlerStore.com bought the last stocks from Chrysler of the NEW PCM's for all years.
In addition, we are also
able to repair the one you have if you like. Call us for
We recently acquired a
stock of Prowler TCM's all years. First come
- first serve.
Chris - Can you
please tell me the difference between the Plymouth Prowler and the Chrysler
Plymouth started making the Prowler in 1997.
They produced it until they went out of business in mid 2001. At that point it
was produced on the same line but with a Chrysler label on it until mid 2002.
There is really no physical difference on the two cars.
Chrysler doesn't make Prowler radiators anymore. No
aftermarket company makes them that fit properly. What do you recommend?
We have them made in high quality aluminum that are a perfect no-hassle
drop-in fit. Click here to see
I can't get a fuel pump from Chrysler for my Plymouth Prowler, what can I do?

I can't find the factory part I need for my Prowler?
Chrysler is not making 99% of Prowler parts any more.
They are getting harder to find new or used. The prices keep going up as
well. We have a pretty extensive network in find factory replacement
parts. Let us try and find what you need. Call us at 352 688 8160 M-F.
I have a 1999 Plymouth Prowler
in Black. I am trying to find a matching trailer. Do you know where I can go??
Any Prowler trailer is hard to find. They
occasionally come across our store maybe twice a year. They show up randomly on
eBay maybe once or twice a year. You will not likely find a particular
color. You will have to have it repainted to match your car. They
often range from $3500-$6500 when they are found. I have seen them as low
as $3000.00 and sold as high as $7500.00. Timing has a lot to do with it.
Can you give me a list of mechanics I can contact about repairs
We always recommend your Largest local Chrysler dealer.
For these reasons:
They usually have the best mechanics for the Prowler.
They are most familiar with the Prowler.
They can get the parts fastest.
And you can hold them accountable for the work.
Chris - where is the best place to try to sell my Prowler I have a purple 99
model with 18,000 miles I want 25,000 for it thanks
Best place to sell and buy is
to contact us and use our service. We have stock mint condition
low mileage Prowlers in stock and can get you what your order as well.
How do I buy a
Trailers were discontinued by Chrysler in 2002.
They are rarely available used. When they are they can go for as much as
Only source I know of is to watch eBay. They appear about twice a year.
I am interested in purchasing a prowler. Are there any years that are more
than others and are there any problems to look for?
I AM LOOKING AT PROWLERS. I LOOKED AT A 2002 INCA GOLD PROWLER. I LIKE THE COLOR
BUT A FRIEND OF MINE SAID THAT THE INCA GOLD WAS NOT A POPULAR COLOR. DO YOU
HAVE ANY SUGGESTIONS ON WHAT COLORS ARE MORE DESIRABLE.
The Inca Gold was indeed the least popular color made.
The most popular colors were Yellow and Mulholland Blue. Seconds were Black and
However, since Prowlers are bought to have fun and provide the owner with
enjoyment I would suggest getting
the color that you like best.
If you are buying a Prowler with resale value in mind, keep in mind that few if
any cars are a good “investment”.
However, the best color to buy for resale is Candy Red. Only 300 were made
for resale and they are much sought after. The most important aspect for
resale value is the mileage. I usually buy my Prowlers under 2,000 miles.
I need a top seal that is on the fold down top, passenger side, runs along the
top of the window front to back.
Do you have any new or used or maybe a place I could find one?
That is a tough one. Because the Prowler is no longer built individual
parts are drying up. The factory starts moving to component part packages.
For example to purchase a small piece from a convertible top you would need to
buy the whole top. The first thing I would do is drive down to you local
Chrysler dealer, ideally one that works on Prowlers, and show them the part
and ask them if they can get it for you.
If not you will need to find a person selling parts from a wrecked Prowler.
They are often on eBay.
Hope this helps.
Best of Luck,
Viperjoe from the VCA
here. I have had this Prowler bug for quite some time (2 Vipers worth) and
just have to get this bug out of my system.
Hope you can give me a
quick education here. Is there any one year that really stands out
that I should concentrate on? Any thoughts on either red or purple?
Are there just basic
bolt-ones that make a noticeable difference in performance (cat back,
hi-flow air filter, PCM re-program or chip?) I mentioned the above
modifications as I want to be able to return it to stock.
Thanks for any help and
info that you may provide.
I own a
Viper and two Prowlers. Both cars are awesome.
First, we are not affiliated with Prowler Online. In regards to years, there are
two generations of Prowlers.
Gen I Has a slightly less powerful
Gen II Has interior upgrades such as a
electronic rearview mirror, chrome shifter bezel, ext…
In addition, the Gen II has a more powerful engine. The exterior body is the
same on both generations.
One thing I do recommend is get the Chrome wheels. The earlier models came with
cast aluminum wheels.
Chrome was an option. The later models came with chrome.
In regards to color, just like with the Vipers it is your preference. Both have
the same resell value.
Of course Purple is the Prowler signature color, like Red is for the RT-10 and
Blue is for the GTS.
There are two colors so of Red that were made. Bright “lipstick” red is a
standard color. The last 300
Prowlers made in 2002 where produced with a special ‘Candy Red” metallic. They
are worth the most of all the Prowlers.
For engine performance upgrades there is plenty to choose from and like the
upgrades for the Viper they
are very expensive. Of course
the Prowler crowd is not into performance as much as the Viper owners.
These cars were built as a novelty sports car. Although did come with a
respectable performance from the factory,
the interior and exterior accessories are more the focus of most Prowler owners.
I have found the best place to purchase a Prowler and to get an idea of pricing
They have the largest selection anywhere.
You should pay special attention to mileage. It is more important for resale
than it is with the Viper.
I recommend getting a Prowler with less than 3,000 miles on it. There are
plenty out there.
You should be able to buy whatever you are looking for under $35,000.
Best wishes in your hunt.
I have a small pin hole in my center of my convertible top. Do you know a good
way to repair this or options to replace the top?Scot Goodman
It is an excellent question.
Unfortunately there is no good answer. Without repair it will only get
bigger over time.
I suppose it depends on how picky you are on the fix. It can be stitched
closed, you can glue a small patch under the hole on the inside of your top, you
can even use a dap adhesive black silicone.
But the best option is probably to see an auto upholstery shop for advice and/or
see what they can do for you.
I would like to
inquire about the availability of the polished covers over the coolant
reservoir, master cylinder, power steering pump and ac condenser that I see in
many of the pictures. Also the polished covers on top of the engine compartment
Thank you for your interest in our
All of the products you see on our
concept car are in production.

months or so.

I need a driver's
side front bumper for a 2000 Prowler. Last week you had them for $650.00 and now
they are $1299.00!??
The reason is because the original manufacturer recently stopped producing them.
So Chrysler bid them out.
The company that picked them Up will only be doing small volume for replacements
only - since there are
no more production vehicles.
I am afraid you will find this happening more and more with all the Prowler
Get them while they are still available.
Hello Chris - I am looking for a way to find
out what number my car is in the production lot? Like 56th of 347. Can I
tell this by my VIN number?
Unfortunately, you can not get that information from
your cars VIN (Vehicle Identification Number). I am not aware if this
information is even still available. Your best bet is to write to Chrysler
and ask them.
Best of Luck
Hey Chris, I bought the blue one with the light
blue pin stripe, the dealer told me that's the top of the line prowler, is
that true, I think they called it the Mohallen version. I want to make my
prowler look better the next one, do you have a order book on accessories, and
is it a good ideal to put LAMBO Doors on, because I know you know the doors
don't open that wide?
You made a wise choice on purchasing a Prowler. They become more rare
each year and continue to go up in value. The Dark Blue
was only available in 2001. It came with a matching blue convertible
It is not more top of the line
than any other 01 or 02 Prowler. After 2000 all Prowlers are identical
for all practical purposes. It really comes down to which color you like
best. In regards to value the color with the less produced is more rare
and usually more valuable.
See our Prowler Info pages for
more details on how many cars were made per color.
Lambo doors are an expensive addition. It really changes the image of
the car. The Prowler was designed with the down and dirty
old roadster racers in mind.
The bottom line is you are
the who drives the car, make yourself happy. If you are concerned about
resale value save all of your stock parts so that a buyer can restore the car
to stock if he or she wishes.
Best of Luck
I want to buy Accessories for my prowler. My
prowler shifts very hard from first to second, that already rebuild the t/m
about two weeks ago should I take it back ,it was shifting hard in all the gears
before ,so did I miss something, or do all of them do that in first to second.
Prowlers were designed to shift with a noticeable kick
as you switch gears - part of its hot rod image.
However, if you feel it is more than just that and it doesn't feel right to you
I would definitely take it back for a re-check.
I’m looking for chrome Prowler word” that fit right into the rear bumper. Do
you were I can find it?
The only company
I know who makes them is the above company out of Florida.
However, I noticed their website is down.
The products were called shimmers.
They are very expensive.
I just used a silver paint pen and colored
them in and they look great!
I have a prowler trailer. I would be interested in the new wheels if you
can locate them.
Thanks - Jeff
The wheels, the trailers and all associated parts have
been discontinued from the manufacturer.
You will have to find them used. Your best bet is to watch eBay.com.
Do you have a trailer for a 2000, red Prowler? If so, what is cost and
Does the 2000 Prowler have any trunk space? Room for a set of golf clubs?
Sorry we don't sell trailers.
In addition, they are very
rare to come by.
The only place I have seen them from time to time is on eBay.
They run over $4,000-$6,000
They usually stay attached to
the car they came with during sales.
The Prowler has enough trunk space for a couple of suits lying flat.
Other than that no room for storage.
Door speakers: Have you ever had any
problems with the door speakers continuing to blow. I have replaced the
driver side about a week ago and now the passenger side has blown. I do
not listen to the system that loud and would like to know what other
speaker you would recommend. Otherwise I am told to replace the entire
system which may not be necessary.
I have never heard of this
I would consult car stereo
I would be willing to say that once you have replaced both speakers I
doubt you will have any more problems like this.
probably are aware, the engine compartment on the Prowler get pretty darn
hot. Currently Real Rod and TGF have engine side panels for sale. I'm
not particularly wild about either. Several other Prowler owners have
expressed a similar feeling. I was curious if you had thought about
introducing such an item. I know it's not cheap to make the up-front
investment, but thought I'd ask to see if anything was in the works by
Thanks - Bob
Yes I have thought about it
The problem is what style to
Everyone seems to want
The main problems is of course
is you would have to cut
a hole in your side panel to
have a real vent.
I am not sure too many Prowler
be willing to do that.
The other option is to have a
vent that is not
real and sticks to the side.
We are looking into it. Watch our site for the product.

Can you please tell me which you recommend on
the door sills Polished or Brushed?

I am interested in buying a Prowler. Where
is the best place to look?
I have scoured the Internet for Prowlers for years.
The best place I have found is
they have the biggest selection by far and the best pricing. You can
also get a deal on eBay if you take your time and wait for it.
I'm having a problem that you might be able to
give me some insight on. The headlight on the passenger side of my 2001
prowler is getting condensation inside the headlight. Can you please e-mail
me back and let me know what i can do to solve the problem. Thank you
for your time. Thank you, Ken .
This is a problem with all the
Prowlers as they get older.
It should not effect the
performance of your head lights. There
nothing you can do except replace the head light fixture however, it is very
Can you tell me how much I can get for my
It depends on many factors. Location, current
market demand, how many like yours are available, year, color, condition and
For example; A 2000 Black Prowler in Excellent condition with 10,000 miles
on it in Ohio was just sold for $31,000.
The most expensive and most sought after Prowlers are the 2002 Candy Reds
with low mileage in mint condition.
They go for $38,000 - $44,000.
I think that was a fair price.
If you send me the specifics on a Prowler I can give you a price on it.
Can you give me a price on a brand new Head
Yes, of course. We supply all MOPAR Parts.
Retail is $864.00. Our price to you $$735.00
We can have it in 1-2 days.
Hi - I have a 99
prowler do you have any input on removing the front bumpers
It is generally not a good
First, there is the obvious
safety issue upon a front end collision.
Second, it reduces the resale
value, unless you are willing to put them back on like stock before you
Finally, it really ruins the original look of this very special car.
I have a 1999
Prowler and want to know how to make it ride smoother -
Well first, the Prowler was not designed as a
luxury sedan. It is a rough and tumble roadster.
But for any car the ride can depend on; status of the front end alignment,
tire pressure, shock condition, suspension damage, and spring condition.
You can effect the ride with any of these.
I was looking for a
factory issue car cover for my 2001 Prowler…I noticed you didn’t seem to
have this selection on your site….any ideas where I might find one?
They are no longer produced and very hard to come
The best place to find one is on eBay. I see one every few months or
so. They are used but usually in good condition. Expect to pay
But I gotta tell you the ones we carry and custom fit and come in colors.
They are a lot better quality than the original Chrysler ones.
I HAVE A 1999 PLYMOUTH PROWLER, DO YOU KNOW
HOW, OR IS THERE A WAY I CAN FIND OUT THE PRODUCTION # OF MY CAR? 1999 ONLY
PRODUCED APROX 605 YELLOW ?
I have done some research on this and have come up
I would encourage our readers to email me with any information they may have
have any idea as to the value of a 2000 Prowler Trailer, or where I could
find out the value? In excellent condition.
It is very rare to see them sold by themselves.
About 20% of all Prowlers were sold with this accessory.
However, about a 3 times a year I have
seen them on eBay.
They typically go for $5000-$7000 each
depending on the shape they are in.
