Finally Got One!
 
I have had it for a couple of weeks and have finally been able to get a decent picture where it is not too dirty. The weather has been awesome but also creates a heck of a slushy mess. Wash it one day and the next day looks like you were mud racing. Absolutely, love it and very impressed with the power and the interior features. I want to thank Milous for tracking it down for me, I am sure he is tired of me asking if there were any more built for western canada.:)

The one gripe I have is that my 1 year old Bulldog has a hard time standing on the back seat looking out the window. I think it has something to do with the crazy acceleration and braking.

I will be getting the 3M protection applied soon and I want to color in the stamped SRT over the hitch. Thinking of doing it red to match the calipers. Here is the one good picture I have so far.

Congrats pal, nice looking Jeep you have there, and a nice looking Bulldog.

I just picked up my Deep Cherry Red over the weekend, so I'm still trying to learn everything. I like the red hitch cover painting idea.

Enjoy it out there!

Ya takes a bit to learn everything. At first I thought I won't need all these creature comforts but now that I am use to them I really like them. Quite different from the bare bones SRT4 Caliber I use to have.

When I get around to getting the hitch package installed on mine I was thinking of painting the hitch cover as well. Heck I can just order the hitch cover for now.

Then again, I like a simple look. Having the SRT8 rear badge and then painting the hitch cover to stand out more may be much. Double SRT branding on the rear. It's all personal preference.

Maybe remove the badge and just use the painted cover.

I will see how it looks and maybe debadge the srt on the back. I will post some pics, so you guys can let me know what you think. Getting it done Tuesday. Also putting the lightly shaded 3M protection on headlights and taillights, just for a subtle change. Won't be dark but you can tell something is different.
