    I just need to know. Please god why?

    well for one, i have not seen anything about him upbadging his car. i think everyone can agree thats not a good thing to do. and two, hes changing the appearance of his car to suit his taste. i dont see any issue with some one modifying the appearance of a car based of a trim level.

    Let me set you straight... I'm not Up Badging anything. Since when is fixing a car up now Up badging it?


    Ok, So not to be a Di^^ either but why put so much money into performance upgrades on a Daily driver that never see's the track? You drive down the road looking like a Stock Car.


    A few reason... When I bought my car I didn't know much about Chargers. I was a Jeep guy. I didn't know there was 2 different sized V6's. I had to trade in a 2 door car for a 4 door car and I had a Monthly payment I wanted. The 5.7's didn't fit that payment. This one did.

    1. I can
    2. It's my Car
    3. I'm not Up badging or pretending to be anything. It's a Daily Driver ? Weekend show car.

    4. You have no idea how much money I have in my car. I do all the work myself and trade for parts. This round of upgrades are being paid buy others insurance companies. 2 people backed into my car while parked. I took 1/2 that money and funded all this with just that. The other 1/2 finished paying my car off.


    5. Even if I had a 5.7, 6.1, 6.2 or a 6.4... I wouldn't race it. All I would do is exhaust and a tune.

    My Car is paid off with only 70k miles. I'm the only owner. The inside looks brand new too. Once I hit 100-120k. I will do HEMI and 6spd swap into mine. Instead of buying or trading in for a new car. The wife's car will be paid off by then and it's my turn.

    Just imagine how badass my car will be then with the Full Package. I do what I can with what I have.



    I've got one Jeep now with a 6.0L that will surprise ya, But it's geared low... I had a CJ-5 with a built 383 Stroker that had just over 450hp. It would lift the front tires.


    Sorry if this was an over reaction. Just get tired of the whole V6 BS... Specially coming from a guy with a Small SRT engine.,.. Why not upgrade to a 6.2, or 6.4 or a Hellcat or a Demon.. What's your point?

    Found a guy to swap Trunks with. This will save hours of work welding/Bodywork to correctly fix the old spoiler holes in my trunk...
