Radiator hoses

I tried this on the red forum a few months ago, but my posts were deleted. First off let me say I am NOT trying to sell these, just trying to get them made, any vendor is more than welcome to jump in and take the reigns.

I contacted Samcosport about making radiator and heater hoses for our GCSRT8s. They make very high quality silicone hoses, and I'm sure they can make a nice 1 piece upper hose to replace the 2 piece with an elbow setup the factory put in, as a plus they are available in many colors and patterns if you are into that sort of thing. Anyway here is there website:
http://samcosport.com/

If we could get a list together of people that would buy the hoses, I think we could get them to make them.

Re: Radiator hoses

Samco is normally very overpriced. What are we talking about for a pair of hoses, about $250?

Re: Radiator hoses

does the srt8 share any hoses with the other WK's? If you can find that out...it may help with putting together a list or group buy.

Re: Radiator hoses

Nope the upper hose is SRT specific, and ONLY available from Mopar.

As for pricing The kit for my SRT-4 is about 120.00, and the LX Hemi kit is 170, for both radiator hoses, and the heater hoses. One of the reasons I want ot look into this is the fact that only Mopar offers one for us now, IIRC the upper alone is ~ 60.00 from the stealership The factory # is 05290720AA for the 06 anyway. I'd like to get rid of the elbo and extra joints, + Silicone last pretty much forever.
