what year srt 10 is best?

Im looking on buying a 2dr srt 10 6speed and wanted to know if one year is better than the other? Im looking at reliability, strength of transmission, rear end. Any other issues.

I could be wrong here, but I believe you are better off buying a 05 or 06. Pretty sure the 04's have smaller brakes on them.

Oh this is simple. The 2005's are the best and red is the fastest!

The 04's have smaller front brakes and 4.10 gears. (you can upgrade that stuff though)
The 06's have the new front end, weigh a lil bit more, and have a PITA TIPM system that if it starts going bad your kinda screwed.

Nah you should give him your opinion. You've literally owned ALL different specs of the trucks though out the years.

Im actually curious if you have a fav year.

I agree that 2005's are the best but not sure about the red part. More like silver is the fastest.

Well said. I couldn't agree more!

OP don't worry about the year, honestly. All years are absolutely great trucks. Some guys who drag race actually like the smaller front calipers on the 04's as they can fit different wheel sizes easier. Unless you plan on doing road course racing I don't feel as if the upgraded front brakes make much of a difference. The 04's do not struggle to stop, they actually brake very well.
