    I spent about $70 to have the resonators removed, $61.98 for 2 new Jones Full Boar mufflers, $460 for vinyl and installation, about $120 for Weather Tech floor mats, $60 for a K and N air filter, and the new decal for the back will end up costing me $150. Not bad for owning the car 3 months. Lol.

    I bought the SRT because I knew I wouldn’t be happy with less.
    Then still modding it

    Over the years, I have spent over $2,000 on billet dress-up items, MOPAR CAI, catch can, etc.

    Just ordered my SPL Front Brake line lock kit.
    Which is pretty stupid this time of year in Oregon.
    Have no Traction on Dry pavement, let alone wet.

    But should be able to get some really SMOKIN Pic's :)

    Passed on the CAI, as I need to drive mine year round. A friend who has one says he's already at work before his car starts to warm up in the winter months. Is that a drawback, or is it still worth it? What are the benefits?

    A CAI has minimal performance benefits since the stock air box, especially the one on the SRT, is so efficient. They are basically for looks and sound. I have had one for 8 years and have no issues with warm ups during cold weather driving.

    My dad sold cars for most of his life. He found out he had pancreatic cancer and was not going to survive it, and he gave me some money that I assumed he wanted to see spent before he was gone. I bought a 2017 Challenger with 4100 miles on it with the money. He got to see the car, but wasn’t able to take a ride with me. I plan on driving this car as long as I am able to, and it will never be owned by anyone else as long as I am alive. Because of this, I am personalizing it more than I normally would have. Hope that makes sense.
