Got all the old adhesive off the driver side mirror and most on the passenger with 90% isopropyl alcohol and a bunch of elbow grease! Need to hit the passenger mirror with some Goo Gone to get some of the stubborn shit off.

Loving the Push Button Start/Stop and Passive Entry on this Bad Boi ! As long as I have the Fob in my pocket....I'm good to go!


The more I drive it...the more I realize a should've bought a 3rd gen to begin with!

Ordered up a pair of these from Amazon. $219 shipped. I really didn't want to spend $500+ on running boards. That seems to be the going rate for running boards of this type. These include the mounting brackets and are supposed to be good for 300 lbs. 5.5" wide extruded Aluminum and not plastic like the 2nd gen running boards. Most likely there's some fatal flaw due to the low price and I'll end up having to buy more expensive ones!! Worst case will be to return them and pony up the extra $$$ for something better.


TAC Running Boards Fit 2011-2019 Dodge Durango (Excl. R/T Model) SUV Aluminum Black Side Steps Nerf Bars Step Rails Running Boards.







I think the polished edge will compliment the trim strip that's already on the side skirts below the doors.

Same here - I should have let Plain Jane go awhile ago. I'm enjoying the "modern" features on my 2014 Dodge Charger SXT.

Ordered a set of OEM Mopar carpet floor mats today from Amazon. Cheaper than any of the online dealers and with free shipping! Truck came with WeatherTech rubber floor mats but not the original carpet ones. Tough to find online at the dealers. A lot are indicating they're discontinued already!

Power Inverter comes stock on the Citadel. 115 AC power outlet in the 2nd row seats. On/Off switch on the dash.

This will come in handy when selling PCs on Craigs List. Can power them from the vehicle to prove they work.

Some more spiffy stuff came in today for Durango III.

A 3D Maxpider Kagu Cargo Liner. Wasn't cheap but neither is the dealer and this is better than those molded rubber mats.




And the official FSM on disc from Mopar Tech Authority that was $70 cheaper than anything on Ebay! Along with a couple of Dodge logo cup holder coasters for $8.99.

Verified the AWD switches between Normal & Low range today. No issues. Heard horror stories about the Solenoid not switching if it's not exercised regularly. Forgot to do it on the Test Drive.

Never had a 4WD or AWD vehicle before. A new experience for me.

Trying to get the windshield replaced and scheduled with the dealer I bought it from. There's a crack that goes almost all the way across the windshield about 2 inches from the top. It's noted in the Sales paperwork they would replace it. Normally I wouldn't worry too much about it but it has the "Rain Sensing" option and needs to be Calibrated after windshield replacement. Would've shoved it off on my own Insurance except for the expense.

We'll see.

Windshield replacement scheduled for next Tuesday at the Dealer. They'll give me a loaner and I can pick it up the next day after it's replaced and Calibrated. w00t!

Thank you Tom. I get almost 23 mpg on the highway at 70 mph. It's AWD...no sure if it's Part time or Full time AWD. My other Durango....the 2008 with the 5.7L squeaks out 20 mpg under the same conditions. It has MDS also.

The power is what drew me to the 5.7L. Moves this 2.5 + ton SUV effortlessly and it has the older 6 speed transmission vs the 2014+ ZF 8 speed.

My 2nd gen 2004 SLT has the 4.7L and it doesn't have the ballz the 5.7L has. Although that 1st year 2nd gen only puts out 230 HP and is a carryover from the 1st gens. In 2005 they upped the power at least 70 HP. The 4.7L did consistently show 23 MPG @ 70 MPH or more on the EVIC. With 200K miles and a 5 speed transmission!

Ordered new Mopar Splash Guards...aka Mud Flaps for Durango III today. Will work well with the TAC Running Boards. Also ordered a 5.7L Hemi Badge that's on my 2008 Limited.

The Citadel has "Durango", "Citadel" and "AWD" badges on the back hatch but nothing indicating the engine size.
