    Hey group, I sold my 2005 CE back in 2017 to raise some capital to start my business. I didn't want to sell it but had to make a sacrifice. Over the past couple years, I was really starting to regret my decision on selling my CE, knowing the chances of me getting or finding another one for what I paid for it were slim to none. Meanwhile, Ive been driving a Tundra Crewmax which has been a great daily vehicle. It's a nice truck, but very common and seen everywhere, nothing really special about it. I like to be different and have stuff not many people have or something seldom seen. So, this time around, I was thinking, if Im going to get back into a Viper truck again. It would have to serve as a daily driver and be used as a truck when needed for hauling and towing. Ive been looking for a clean, low milage QC example for quite a while that was in my budget. My patience finally paid off and Im the new owner of a pretty clean 59K mile 2006 Inferno Red QC.

    Don't be lazy, get some Autosol and a couple of different buffs for your drill and in 2 (two) days you can have wheels like mine:D

    I would do that, but there's some issues. Three of the four rims are warped to some degree, two have been welded, and a ton of curb rash. Gonna go with the aftermarket black rims.

    Yep, and it's a bummer. I like the original rims, but they are way to expensive. I saw two that were reconditioned, and the place wanted $1400.
