The 400 mile Lit-XNA-LIT trip went fine. EVIC showed 19.8 mpg avg @ 70 mph. Need to check the tire size as I was passing a number of cars @ 70 mph indicated. I'll whip out the SuperChips tuner and put the Gas Saver Tune in it and verify the tire size to make sure the Speedo is correct.

Satellite Radio and CDs transferred to the MyGig hard drive made the 7 hour trip bearable!

New Key Fob blanks came in today. I'll take them to the locksmith Monday and get them cut and programmed. Should be a whopping $30. I'll have a total of 3 programmed key fobs after that.

The 5.7L requires 7 quarts of 5W-20 Earl. Guess that's the price to pay for owning a "Hemi"! No more just buying single 5 qt jugs of Oil. Synthetic isn't specified but probably even better.

Put the stock tune back in the 2004 Durango and transferred the SuperChips Tuner to the Limited. Loaded up the Gas Saver tune. We'll see how it does on the next road trip later this week.

Need to pull the 2nd row console and do a power wash clean out of the bin! Looks like it was a family hauler previously....there's crackers, candy and all sorts of nasty shit stuck to the bottom.

Haven't tried the flip forward 2nd row bucket seats to test 3rd row access yet. I'll do that later today with some more cleaning.

Some actual pictures! Kind of dirty after the 400+ mile trip to XNA. Part of having a Black Vehicle again. Not the best pictures but I'll have better ones after cleaning it up.









Looks like the Drivers side headlight has been replaced. Passenger side is clouded. Ordered a pair of new headlights along with Fog Lights and LED bulbs for both.

Premium Windshield Sunshade ordered. AVS Window Vent Visors will be here later this week. Same as the 2004 SLT. Didn't want to transfer them as they have adhesive tape to keep them secure in channel.

Thinking that's about it for this Beast. Battery is 5 years old and a WalTard battery. Might replace that as a preventative measure. Will get another Interstate battery.

It's like Christmas in May!

Just received the following today:

AVS Window Vent Visors - Installed
Super Premium Folding Windshield Sun Shade - Installed
New Fog Lights - Waiting for the LED Bulbs to get here later today
LED Headlight Bulbs - Waiting to get the new headlights
Dodge FSM 4 Manual Set - w00t!


Also went to the Locksmith and got the two aftermarket Key Fobs cut & programmed.
$24.95 for the Key Fobs from Amazon and $65.40 to cut and program the keys! It would've cost close to $400 from the dealer for the equivalent!

First repair on the Durango finished. The MyGig RER NAV unit was randomly locking up and rebooting especially when the cabin was hot. Some research indicated it was most likely the hard drive. Followed the test procedures and ordered up a new programmed Hard Disk from Mygig-Disk.com for $90 and installed. Updated the Firmware and Maps to the latest from the included DVD and all is well in Durango Land!

New Fog Lights are here along with the LED bulbs. Will attempt that install tomorrow when it's not raining. Unlike the 2004 the bumper cover doesn't need to be removed. Remove some screws holding the wheel liner in and remove 2 screws per fog light, disconnect the bulb and push out the front. Easy-Peasey!

New headlights are supposed to be here tomorrow. Already have the LED bulbs for them.

More goodies came in today:

Headlights
Solid chrome Lug Nuts
Chrome Rear View Mirror Caps

All that's left that I'm waiting on are new Tail Lights. Passenger side one has a crack on the top.

MyGig NAV worked perfectly today through several short trips. 90 degrees outside temps. Looks like the HDD replacement took care of the random Reboots and Lockups.

Also got 2x Shrader OEM style TPMS sensors in today. Of course the day after I ordered them the sensor that wasn't "putting out" is working again! I'll have them in the Durango ready to go if I need to replace one. They were only $24.95 each.
