    Picked this up on Tuesday night!! Love it despite putting copious amounts of fuel through it at uk prices.

    Lost the back end today it's very twitchy! Debating whether it needs some black stripes or not

    Beautiful! to many doors for me! :) The quad cab's are not really fuel efficient. You may need to convert it to 6 speed stick.

    Thanks! I really like the quad cabs. We don't have many srt 10s in uk but even less are quads

    Awesome! Then again i am partial to Silver!!!!

    I agree, convert that tank to a 6-speed. The difference in fuel economy is well worth it especially for a gas guzzling beast like that. Ive hit 20mpg on mine many times.

    IMO.... if you are going to put stripes, put Viper GTS Blue stripes. That's what i am planning on doing.

    These trucks are not great in the rain! they feel like a mustang when conditions are dry but when the roads are wet, you will realize how heavy these things really are.... Be careful!

    New truck

    Welcome from the centennial state. Your fuel is in liters so its gonna be pricey to fill that tank. The roads too are kind of narrow but you have the M5 to let it rip. Welcome again to the VTCOA.

    Welcome from Germany !

    Nice ride !

    Btw, if you want to be more fuel efficient, i have a "plug and play " BRC - LPG system for the SRT10 for sale.

    If you are interested, just let me know.

    All the best

    Arne

    Hi Arnel, thanks for the offer. Thankfully my truck is not my daily driver so i dont do that many miles.
