Default 2011 Black Ram 1500 Crew Cab Sport 4x4....

This week I will be the proud owner of a 2011 Black Ram 1500 Crew Cab Sport 4x4, will list details and options below. Will be in either Wednesday or Thursday....

Main reason for purchase, we have a trailer and do a lot of RV camping with our kids who are 5 & 6 years old. I was using my 1984 suburban that has a 454 and only 62k miles that was handed to me when my grandfather passed away a couple years ago, he lived to 88 and had a great life. This was the same vehicle he used to tow the trailer that my sister and I had many fond memories in growing up with him and my grandma mostly in Pismo Beach….by the way….she’s now 92 and still driving……Before the Sub he towed the trailer with a 1973 Buick Electra that had a 455 in it, the Buick was actually superior in towing per him….. see my auto sig for my Buick.

Problem with the Sub…. it’s old, paint is shot, AC doesn’t work and even though it runs good and fine for short trips, I don’t trust it for long ones since it sat for about 8 years without being driven.

So…. Long story short….I’m Trading in my silver 07 SRT8 Charger with 52k miles on it…. I really enjoyed the Charger, bought it new, great vehicle and never had one single issue with it. The day I brought it home I already had my CAI, Diablo tuner and dustless brake pads waiting for me. I drove straight home and installed those mods day1…. Yes, my wife knows I’m a lunatic like many of you…..

The SRT8 put down 380RWHP and 373RWTQ....


Here’s the option/special specs for the Ram:
1500 CREW CAB SPORT 4x4
5.7L HEMI
Brilliant Black Crystal Pearl
ParkView Rear Back up Camera
Media Center CD/DVD/MP3/HDD/NAV
Sport Performance Hood
3.92 Axle Ratio
Front & Rear Rubber Floor Mats
Sport Premium Group
Trailer Brake Control
Remote Start & Security Group
Class IV Hitch


I will post some MOD question threads in that forum section.....


Thx
Vinman

PS: my auto sig doesnt seem to be working, until I figure it out, here it is

07 SRT8 Charger... 425HP 4-door daily driver....
70 Buick GSX, QQ Stage1 dyno numbers 552TQ & 554HP......
65 El Camino 327 (grandfather bought new in 65')....
04 Volvo XC-90 Twin Turbo AWD (family vehicle)....

Thanks for the warm welcomes

I will take pictures when I pick it up either tomorrow or Thursday for sure.

I spent countless hours on the Charger and SRT8 Forums, so I'm sure I will do the same here.

Thx
