Re: Why do people mod their SRT?

Nope you can get it with a weaksauce tow package... but a tow package none the less, at least one reason why there is not the center exit exhaust anymore.

The factory doesnt make a mass production vehicle 85% race capable or 85% off road capable (ok most manufacturers make some models that start pushing the boundaries BUT 99% of whats sold are not these models), while they do sway from the middle mark between grandpa cruiser and offroader or grandpa cruiser and a race/track vehicle, they are still not as capable as they can be with some modifications.

Now im trying to keep this from getting too personal but it must be nice to see life through 6 figure plus glasses, my wife and I work our butts off for a measly living, we are blessed with enough money to pay our bills every month (basic cable, natural gas, electric...) but the money for a dedicated track rig or off road rig is just flat out not even remotely a possibility, we are close enough to the just floating mark that it would be the first thing on the chopping block if we dipped under one month.

So yes from your point of view, why would you modify a stock vehicle to make it less of an all around vehicle? Make it louder or stiffer and less comefortable to drive long distance. especially when you have your porsche race car to take to the track and beat the crap out of... but for the other 80+% of the users on this forum (to be fair, probably a much larger percent) the money, space, and time to have, use, and enjoy a separate dedicated vehicle is not an option.

*personal edit* In the spirit of thanksgiving, I am very thankful for what I have, and manage to always be covered for what I need and occationally some extra goodies, a beautiful wife whom loves me, an awesome dog, a roof over our heads, decent vehicles that continue to run like tops reguardless of mileage, and we both have jobs in this crappy economy... beyond that I cannot ask for more. I dont want my edited out joking comment to be misinterpreted, so I just removed it.

Re: Why do people mod their SRT?

Mod cause you enjoy it and to personalize your car. It does affect resale value, can go either way depending on who's looking at it. As for the track comment, a friend of mine has a modded jeep and runs road races it and has passed a few "exotic sports cars". I'll see if I can find a couple of his YouTube videos.

Re: Why do people mod their SRT?

I have moved here from Europe at age 15, worked hard in high school, college, dental school and dental specialty program, while having part time jobs and english as a second language.

Nothing was given to me but only achieved it thru hard work in this great country.....

While I feel for your situations, I have absolutely nothing to be ashamed about......

Happy Thankskiving to you all!.....
