    New member to this forum, but not to Dodge/Ram.

    Been driving Dodge/Ram products for the last 30 yrs or so........but when the SRT 392's came out, I wanted one....bad.

    When I finally had things worked out where I could get me one and not kill the budget......went to order one early 2019, and found out they stopped making them the previous year.

    So I started a search for a nice used one.......

    My screen name come from the 90's when I had 5 - 79 Dodge Ramchargers, all 4wd, and all but 1 had the quad headlight grille. 1 also had the very last shreotbed conversion kit made on it.

    People started calling me TheRamChargerMan, which I actually used for a screen name on certain dodge truck sights, but then I shortened it to TRCM for any other sites....and it has stuck.

    The Ramchargers are long gone now, but I still have a 2012 Ram Laramie Crewcab 4wd for hauling/towing duties.

    The SRT 392 has the Granite Crystal Metallic paint with black stripes, and it has the Sepia Laguna leather interior. The interior color is what was the hardest to find, as when they stopped SRT 392 production, they also bumped it up to only being available in the Hellcat or Redeye trim levels....neither of which I wanted to pay for.

    It is fully loaded, including the block heater, and the PO had them add the Mopar strut bar and CAI the day he bought it, and shortly thereafter, a Billet Technologies catch can. I will soon be adding the headlight intake tube.


    Anyway, here's a few pics of it, and I'll get some more current ones soon........this thing is such a blast to drive....wish I'd have just gotten one a long time ago.....

    Welcome. Your Challenger looks great, I really like the hood with the center scoop. Low mileage?

    I love that interior. I was trying to find a left over SRT last summer and did find a low mileage used F8 with the tan interior. I probably should have jumped on it, but it was a private seller a distance away and I didn't want to mess with everything involved in that.
