Default Ram SRT-8??

Ok, so I love my truck. But.... I drove an SRT10 Today. I should not have done that. I immediatley shifted to building an SRT8 out of my truck. Drop it, SRT wheels, front lip spoiler, and of course a bit more power. I would go for the "factory look" as if it came that way. But if I do what I want it would entail SRT8 badging. Of course it would live up to the reputation in the handling and speed dept. and look the part too. Am I wrong for using the badging? Give me your thoughts as if you saw a "concept" like this on the road... thanks guys!!

Sounds like a good idea to me, do what you want and make it your own
If Dodge wont build an SRT8 Ram you gotta DIY!

I wanted an SRT8 or SRT10 Ram
...and also wanted 4WD for the winter

So took a 10' RCSB Sport 4x4
lowered on a better suspension and 500whp supercharged!

Confuses the shyt out of people with Viper badges front/rear,
and SRT8 emblems inside to match my Piano Black+Carbon Fiber interior

I guess it is her money (shes the breadwinner)! Anyway, thanks for the pics and tge replies... if any other ideas pop up, I am all ears!

Viper Badges are powder coated billet aluminum from www.billetbadges.com
The SRT8 interior badges are from http://www.rebadgedesign.com/

The Supercharger is running awesome so far, but is in need of a fuel pump upgrade and my built transmission to be installed,
then my water/meth kit for added insurance before I can get it on the dyno for a tweak before heading back to the track.

I did cheat and ran quick test and got a 4.41 second 0-60 on my Diablo Trinity tho
Monster out of the hole from a dig, even chirps into 2nd gear in 4WD!

I'd leave it totally stock looking, and only add the go-fast goodies. Make it a sleeper.
