Nice and clean under the hood. And it has working good Lift Supports unlike the 2nd gens with those fricking Prop Rods! Still uses R134a refrigerant too! And the classic 5.7L Hemi plastic engine cover found on so many Chrysler/Dodge models.



Looks like the battery is hidden somewhere most likely in the cabin. It's not in the back in the under floor storage compartment. Checked to make sure it had the factory jack tool kit and the Alpine Subwoofer is under there also. Possibly under the drivers seat like later models. Need to check that.


Owners manual says battery is under the front Passenger Seat. Online Tutorials indicate it's pretty easy to access unlike LH cars! LOL!

Downside is it'll probably be a $200 battery to replace due to the venting design and most likely AGM.

Thanks! I'm going to be thinning the herd down to one Durango in the next couple of weeks.

Even has a power Tilt/Telescoping Steering Column! None of that pulling manual levers crap...just push a switch! Along with Memory Seats/Mirrors/Radio.

Pictures of the interior make the leather look like it's Light Taupe like my 300m Special but it's "Buckskin" tan color. The camera color settings must've been thrown off by the bright sunlight. Looks like this in reality:





Complete with the "Citadel" imprint in the seat backs.

Miss the running boards I have on both 2nd gens. makes it easier to get into and out of. Might look into some chrome "Nerf" bars or even black OEM running boards.

Hmmmm......OEM Mopar Side Step Bars. About $550 from discounted online dealers! Yowza! Same price for Black or Chrome.



What's the consensus Black or Chrome?

Need to look at the truck tomorrow. Front/Rear lower fascias are black. Can't tell from my pictures about the side skirts. If the side skirts are dark colored maybe black. If the skirts are silver or chrome...I'd lean towards chrome bars.

Side shot of the Citadel. Chrome trim just below the doors and black side skirts. I'm leaning towards all black bars.




These are some possibilities that won't break the bank. Around $200 with mount kits.

Maiden long distance trip in Durango III today XNA Airport in the Nortwest Corner of AR>

Impressive numbers for the Durango III regarding MPG today. 420 miles round trip. 70-75 mph for about 99% of the trip. Around 60 miles of steep hill sections and averaged 23.1 mpg! Window sticker claims 20 mpg highway. Not bad for full time AWD also.

Got another 3 month SiriusXM subscription trial in this Durango also. Came in handy on the long 420 mile trip to XNA airport yesterday!

Pulled the giaganormous round blind spot mirrors of the door rear view mirrors. That foam adhesive sucks donkey balls!! Need to see if the remainder with come off with alcohol or I need to break out the Goo Gone!



The new blind spot mirrors are smaller and I've got them mounted in the upper outside corners of the mirrors. Much better field of view than the round ones. Must've been a "Senior Citizen" that owned it previously. At least more :"Senior" than me!!

Pretty much like this....




Here are the mirrors with the New Blind Spots installed. Mo Betta!
