Might run into an issue with tire fitment, though very slightly. My understanding is that there is a pinch weld on the rear side of the front wheel well. What is the proper fix for it? I know on my jeeps I always beat them flat and painted them

Re: Trackhawk

That's a nice car and a great value for $55k. I'm not sure why it is but I always see HCs in stock at some random Dodge dealer half way between Missoula and Kalispell. I think at one point last year they had six or seven. It's in the middle of no where. Agree, I'd have a hard time paying the $74K s...

Re: Trackhawk

I disagree. The real value of the Hellcat series of vehicles is the factory warranty on the 707HP feature. That's 30k miles of 1/4 mile launches and smokey burnouts backed by the factory. The Chargers, Challengers, and GC's are generally pretty low quality compared to an M5, M6, or X5/6M. The insid...

X5-6M are great cars...and tuned....get out of here the real value is the fact that the trackhawks value should be 88k no more...

Yesterday I tore apart the inflation gun and did surgery on all the flow ports. There was room to open things up quite a bit. I also swapped the closed-flow clip on chuck for an open-flow screw-on chuck. Those two changes cut the inflation time in half. I did have to return the high-flow quick conn...

There's 11 of them at Koons in McLean, VA (largest CJR Dealer on East Coast), which means they're as competitive as possible on price, and not a single one listed under $90K, most were $95K+.

Does anyone have a current mfg and part number list for 4.88 gears on a 2014+ PW? I agree. Thats what has kept me from putting 37s on the truck in the first place....

Suggest tagging and bookmarking the Army Manual on rigging and winching linked below---I'll spare the pedantic resuscitation of force calcs, but suffice it to say, there's math to be done if you're concerned about breaking strengths.

Re: 40-Inch Tire Discussion (Or anything bigger than 37's)

38’s or 40’s ?? 38’s are looking pretty reasonable. And I could run them a lot sooner, with less mods. Way less. Sorta. The difference between 40's and 38's is... It’s 2 inches actually, seems insignificant, until my wife told me it was the deal breaker with her old boyfriend once we started dating...
