The Jeep is gone, picked this up today from Bosak down in Indiana.  They looked for one for me for about 3 weeks and found him over in Ohio and got him shipped over.

2014 Dodge Durango SXT

Me too. Smile The roads were wet when I took it out this morning and not even a hint of slip or tire squeal like I could do in the Jeep.

I have a lot to figure out on it. Going to hold off washing it because its supposed to rain tonight and I am going to a Halloween party so it will be out in it. Bosak cleaned it pretty well so its not gross but I do want to clay it and get a coat of wax on before the temps drop and stay low.

lol nah I can cover this one.

I was actually anxious to get up and drive it this morning. It is seriously the most comfortable vehicle I have drove. The Charger is a very close second but I guess knowing its probability of swinging the ass around on me is super low. The radio sounds amazing. I have gotten as far as pairing it bluetooth wise with my phone so I can stream music.

I was getting texts through it last night, some it would read others not. Today it was not picking them up so I need to learn more about it.

I am totally in love with it. I have drove it every single day since I brought it home. I cannot speak highly enough about it and I have not had time to sit down and figure all the neat things out on it. Still have not washed it either, working 4 am to 5 pm is killing me. Hopefully we will have a warm day next week where I can wash and wax it.

Because I am delirious from only 2 hours of sleep in the last 2 days I decided to back Ares out and take some family pics.

Ok so I am thinking about how to get rid of the chrome. I got a vinyl sample that is pretty close, the SUV is so dirty right now so now I need to wait until I can clean it well to make sure its a good match. The sample is body color which I think is the right way to go, black would look weird OTHER than the grille. I am probably just going to order a black RT grille to replace my stock one.

Luckily there is not a lot of chrome. I guess if the vinyl does not match well enough for my OCD I guess I can talk to a painter. Do not want to go too crazy since this is my daily.

Only other things I want to do is maybe a CAI and an exhaust and then summer rims. It has 18's now and I am thinking put winter tires on those rims for next year and get 20's with summer tires. Probably will be black rims, might do the barrel inside the rim a color or something just for a little pop but not sure yet.

Agreed on grill and body colored vinyl.
Even if not 100% match, as long as its close it should be fine considering all the chrome is lower part of body. 1st gen Jeep SRT rims would look very good......just saying.

Pics of the rims and size?

I need to look at the sample in the sun. It might be a slight bit darker but I can live with that. I just know black would look way off.

I have another idea for rims and after seeing a photo of what it could look like I think that is what I am going to do. Saving my pennies now. Need to order the grille and figure out the wrap.

Took a road trip, was gone 13 days, went to Kentucky, then Florida, then South Carolina, and finally Tennessee.

Final numbers, the Durango did really well. Was like driving a big couch.

I could have made it home on one tank of gas from TN. I would have had about 20 miles left but I chickened out and stopped about 30 mins from home.

I only got like 22 going south so not sure why it was better coming home other than the first 2 hours on the road Monday I went a lot slower because it was raining sideways and foggy up in the mountains and I didn't want to die.

I'm sure it has to do with the different blends of gas you got along the way.

what a way to stretch out Atlas' legs

I've been experimenting with about 85% 93 oct, the balance 87 oct, and just a splash of Newman's Own zesty italian salad dressing. This blend looks to be pretty solid, more info to come as I compile my data.
