Re: Proof other Mineral Gray SRT8s exist, Schelp's Truck

I think mine are like yours, Schlep. Wife complains that the heat isn't that great -it seems very mild and not really sure I'd be able to tell if they're on or off. Ventilation seems pretty subdued as well. I can tell it's on, but have to pay attention. I turned them on when a buddy was sitting in it and he didn't even notice.

Re: Proof other Mineral Gray SRT8s exist, Schelp's Truck

So, I knew this was coming because it's par for the course:

I get a call yesterday from my dealer saying "we haven't registered your truck yet because we need a copy of your wife's drivers license". Oh yeah, these IDIOTS decide to call and tell me this on the last day my temp tag is valid. I informed them I emailed a PDF of it when my salesmen called me the following Monday (19 Dec) after picking the truck up, I even included another copy of my own.

I knew these assholes forgot, I was just waiting for it so I could lay into them. So, as of today no call back (MD registration isn't open anyway due to holiday weekend) as to what the hell they did after our talk yesterday afternoon and I have a $60,000 vehicle that I cannot drive because the temp plates are expired now and the dealer did not register the vehicle when closing out their end of the paperwork.

L-O-L So what should I demand from them? free oil change? 2 oil changes? 3? 4? I know I pad for the registration already myself, but part of their "doc fees" IMO are to make sure they register my damn vehicle. I'll never buy another vehicle from David Dodge, Glen Mills, PA

Is there an SRT certification for techs? What should I ask to make sure the guy working on my Jeep knows what he is doing?

Re: Proof other Mineral Gray SRT8s exist, Schelp's Truck

As of earlier this week I am finally DONE with my dealer, everything is closed out and good to go. Thank the Lord.

Anyway, best numbers so far as of last night at 1,111 miles on vehicle:
0-60mph: 4.6sec
1/4 mile with 450lbs of testosterone in the driver + passenger front seats, missed 2nd-3rd shift point, and 1/4 tank of gas: 13.3sec @ 103mph. (track setting, manual paddle shifts)

Nicely done! I predict you have a couple of tenths at least to go when you hit ~2k mi.
