Default Made a bit of an upgrade!

A buddy of mine showed up at my place with a '13 hemi 8 speed a few weeks ago.. haven't been able to stop thinking about it, so i made an irrational decision and swapped up my '11 SXT for a '13 sport qc 8 speed... and i couldn't be happier! hah. Went through an awesome dealership and basically got back my last 2 years of payments, got $9500 off the sport, and they swaped my wheels and tires and installed a 2.5" pro comp levelling kit in exchange for taking the running boards off the new one. I've been pretty gentle on 'er so far, but once she's good 'n broken in im lookin' forward to seein' what that 8-speed with 3.92's can do!

here's a little before and after.

Before:



After:



Still want to put 1.75" rear spacers in the back. And am looking forward to diablosport releasing some tunes for the 2013s so i can put my trinity back into action. Thinkin' of goin Vararam this time around instead of K&N also..

They are 34.5 inch nitto trail grapplers, on 18" Black Iron 'Villans'. They fit good.. They actually would rub slightly at full lock on the '11, but so far I havent noticed that at all on this one. All I have is the levelling kit right now, and sometimes i feel like they take up just a hair too much of the wheel well.. but i've had 33.5's before with the same kit, and they looked a bit small. I just cant win, haha.

Thanks guys! Yeah, I'm super happy with it.. and I did get a pretty smokin' deal... It honestly just started with me dorkin' around on the dealerships website (just dreaming really), when a little chat box popped up and one of their sales reps started asking me what i drive, what im looking for etc... they ended up offering me a new boat (which I declined, haha), a way better interest rate, and A LOT more than my truck was worth for a trade in.. It was pretty hard to say no!

So far im really diggin' all the extra features that come with the sport, but everything being controlled by the touch screen is taking some getting used to.. Im sure after I spend some more time fiddle-fartin around with it it'll be second nature.
