The new DD

As many of you probably saw on facebook, I went to Detroit this weekend and picked up a '14 Dodge Durango R/T. After driving a bunch of SUV's we liked this one the best, we started looking at V6's, but once we drove a V8 we were sold, and the fact that you can tow a bit over 7000lbs with it is nice.

It is a R/T with the towing package, sunroof, nappa leather pack (cooled seats), and the 2nd row captain chairs and console. It has 35000 miles on it, and is the cleanest one we drove (all the local ones were over priced and beat to shit!)

Nothing major planned for now. Window tint coming soon, and then just driving it and we'll see!

I plasti dipped the wheels black on sunday. I like them much better now.

Glad it was in such nice condition for your arrival! Sounds like this was a very good dealer to work with. The long hunt + willingness to travel paid off.

Diablo tune + AFE intake inbound?

Yeah the dealer was great to deal with. Novi Cadillac, apparently they are the number 1 volume Caddy dealer in the world.

Re: The new DD

Junk, take it back!

For real tho, nice choice. I hear ya on looking at V6's but soon as you drive the V8 then you just can't look back! Sounds like yours has more options than mine (sunroof, cooled seats). I actually ended up really liking the polished/black wheel look. At least now there's some sort of distinguishing difference between ours, lol!

Any mods planned? So far I've done the Mopar intake, and the Mopar interior lighting kit. Plan on getting some running boards but then probably calling it quits there. Since you're 2014 you have better tuning options, I was looking at a Diablo setup from Hemi Fever, you could maybe look into that if interested.

OH and yeah, sounds like there'll be two black durango's getting tint at AJ's lol

Haha, yeah at least this way it doesn't look like I completely copied you! I really like the blacktop package wheels, so maybe if I find a good deal on a set I'll do that. I wasn't too worried about the sunroof, but I kinda wanted the cooled seats, so I was happy to find those.

Yeah I have back and forth on the running boards, we'll see how it goes. There are a couple options i kinda like. Intake maybe at some point we'll see. If i can find a really good deal on the diablosport I might pull the trigger.

Is that a girl, or like a teenage boy, at the very beginning of that song?

Re: The new DD

Funny thing, last week the manager at our daycare bought a black R/T with the blacktop package. Erry-body buying these things now I guess! I actually came really close to buying a silver sxt rallye with blacktop package. But soon as I drove the V8, all other options went out the window!

Yeah i looked for a sxt with rallye or blacktop for awhile, but it was really hard to find them with the factory towing package... (extra coolers, bigger alternator, hitch, leveling rear suspension). So when I noticed the R/T's were mostly equipped with it we drove one and switched ha!

Re: The new DD

Haven't done much but drive this guy around. But just wanted to update for fun.

We've been pulling a 16x7 enclosed trailer with it, and it does a great job.



I also picked up a set of Hellcat replica wheels for the summer. I got a good deal on them, and just went for it. they are 22x9.5
