    Phase 8: Document Viper Truck breakouts on Registry Web Page
    Phase 9:Verify All Years 1992-2017 Viper and Viper Truck are complete on Web Site (Currently some Viper data is missing)
    Phase 10: Bring the IVR Current

    The IVR I have not updated for some time. A lot of things I needed to complete before I did that and the format that was used in the beginning got very awkward with GEN IV & V with all the different options. Trying to decide if returning the IVR 1992-2008 the way that Jay Herbert let it and adding GEN IV & V to a different page that allows for the carious combinations without squeezing things down so much that they can actual be read. A lot to consider. Along with that deep thought is determining the addition of the RAM SRT-10 in the IVR (no one can stop me which is the good part)

    Getting there

    At some point I was going to place everything in an ebook(s), until I started reading about ebooks. It seems the biggest issue with ebooks is Piracy. There is an estimated 30% loss due to illegal copies. Also seems that there are some pretty easy work around's to the protections that can be put on ebooks. The thought was to do a year by year breakdown, VIN, with the Equipment List and several breakdowns.

    The safest way would be paper. A little research there was a bit horrifying. Something as simple as the 1992 Viper would be (my cost) between $9-11.00 per copy as the book would be between 300-350 pages. That was with A5 size paper, print would be pretty small. Decided not to look any further as a full 8.5x11 paper would probably be near $20.00 a book (just a guess) and with the 2005 Viper Truck being over 5000 trucks would possibly mean the cost (to me) would be greater than $150.00+ a copy. That is not a good deal at all, 19 bucks maybe.......

    So until I figure out a better e solution. I should be done this year with all the documenting

    Yea!!!

    Can't imagine how many hours (years) you have put into this.

    So after a quick count. 5,452 RAM SRT-10's where supposed to come from the factory with Tonneau Covers. 2,243 of those got the dreaded Delete Credit. 2240 2005's and 3 2006's.

    Any guesses how many different factory installed radios were installed in the RAM SRT-10, I know I was surprised
