No we still have the truck the only difference being it's now the wifes' daily drive.

The Dodge Grand Caravan went bye bye (thankfully) and was replaced by a Trailblazer SS. My first choice was a Grand Cherokee SRT8 but I couldn't get a decent deal. In my opinion with the exception of the agricultural transmission the Trailblazer is actually a better vehicle even though it means I've strayed to the 'Bow Side'.

No chance of straying with the truck though as you can't beat a Ram!!

Anyhow here it is (next time I'll close the garage door first!):

Too bad Jeep won't let you test drive the SRT stuff otherwise you wouldn't be making that statement, but non the less I like how the TBSS looks but no way does it compare the my Jeep, well thats my opinion anyway congrats on the new ride

:tup: :tup: :tup: with you on that Bro! Jeep SRT8 is the nicest looking SUV out there! TBSS does not even come close to the classy styling of the Jeep. I'm almost certain the Jeep is very competitively priced versus the TBSS.

The Diablo canned tune for the Jeeps were sorta a joke its the CMR tuning that brings out the big monster in the Jeep I'm on my 3rd from B&G and ProMotion tuning will be next or the Hemi Shop since they just got their CMR package today

If you already have a B&G PCM its 130.00 if not its 230.00, ProMotion is 120.00 and all of this is done VIA E-Mailing them some data logging, what I had to do is use the manual shift mode (yes the jeep has it) and in 2nd gear over 2000RPMs run it at WOT thru 3rd gear, download the data and email to the CMR tuner, from there they can adjust spark and knock retard etc...

Besides an intake and the tuner my hands are tied on modding the Jeep I can't afford to do my own laundry if you know what I mean

Nick I sold the truck outright at the last minute I was just going to trade it in and take a hit but the Hemi gods put me in touch with a guy. BUT 2 weeks after he bought it he got jacked in Dallas and they stripped it clean to the rotors :VHOT:
