    Thanks again. Now the only thing left to do is decide on what color of headlight intake rings to get.

    I was thinking of red. I don’t have any other color on my car. Might get red hood pin wires then too.

    True. I don’t have a jack, but O’Reilley’s is just a few blocks away and they sell a caliper paint kit for about $20. Be easier if I could take it in and they could do all 4 at once.

    if you have a harbor freight nearby , go buy a low rider floor jack, that is what I did, used it for track purposes when I had to change tires on all four corners. they have one for about $59.99 nascar style. painting for me usually takes about an hour a caliper

    I might do that. I'm thinking of replacing the chrome lug nuts with black ones and could do it all at the same time. Have to wait until summer though, as I'm in Minnesota. You take the tire off and just tape off everything, or is it a little more complicated than that?

    I installed a Mopar CAI on my stock 2009 SRT 8 years ago and have had no issues with it. CAIs provide more sound and look great, but provide a minimal, if any, performance boost.

    I already replaced the mufflers with Jones Full Boar mufflers, and deleted the resonators. Other than being cosmetic, maybe I don’t need a CAI? Seems foolish to spend that amount of money on something nobody will ever see, and my car is plenty loud as it is.Hmmm.
