Yo Chris.......had the TPMS installed last Thursday by a shop. No programming needed. The Shrader Sensors I bought act just like OEM. Install them and drive around for a few minutes above 25 mph I think to get it detected and registered. Your Charger should be the same. $25 for a Shrader.
I did buy some rear side marker bulbs and CHS stop light bulbs due to the inspection from the work done last week on Durango II. They wanted like $80 parts/labor to replace 3 bulbs!!! I told them to shove it! Got bulbs from AAP for $13 with extras to spare.
Got a Bluetooth Receiver coming so I can stream From my phone(s). The MyGig RER allows Bluetooth uConnect for phone calls but not streaming. Tempted to upgrade to a MyGig RHR which has streaming but I've got the receiver for less than $15. RCA Mini-Jack for Aux Input right on the face of the RER.
A Low-Speed CANBus RHR would be around $250+ and need antenna/cable adapters.
Maybe in the near future after a few more business trips and expense reimbursement!
Might sell Durango I to a neighbor. He got T-Boned by an Illegal and is waiting on his Insurance Settlement this week. I'll give him a break on price vs selling to some Yahoo on CL. And he's a Marine like me!
ProZ 3" round Stainless steel Nerf bars are in for Durango II. Looks to be a quality product at a great price. Sorting the hardware/brackets for the install but of course it's starting to rain and all day tomorrow!! $189. 300 lbs rated weight support....even my fat ass won't bend them!
Chrome on Black SUV. Will match the Chrome Door Handles and side rear view mirror covers.
New windshield installed today courtesy of State Farm and SafeLite. Had 4 big rock chips in it when I bought the vehicle. Decided to wait a few months before hitting up State Farm to get it replaced. $100 deductible vs $284 paying out of pocket.
Heading to the Dealer tomorrow to get the windshield replaced on Durango III as part of the Sales Contract when I bought it.
Decided to put up a restore thread over here on my 1993 Dodge D250; Cummins Turbo Diesel...this truck is like the Intrepid to me; and is getting a very similar restoration that my Intrepid did back in 2005...a bit more on this one though.
A little history, the 1993 has been in our family since...
Just picked up this clunker today.
A high mileage 2004 Dodge Durango SLT. 4.7L V8. A little over 170K miles. Runs great.
Leather, OTIS, 2WD, Class III Tow Hitch, 3 Row Seating and Front/Rear A/C and Heat.
Gets almost as good Highway Mileage as my 2002 300M Special !
So after the RX8 died last year, and after getting rid of it, we've been a one car family for the last year or so (the GF's Honda Civic) which is fine for us, and has been practical as far as our needs go.
But, being a car guy at heart, I needed (read: "wanted") something to tinker with. I've...
my 2017 Ram 1500 Tradesman
So I decided I wanted a brand new vehicle, but wanted something a lot more practical than the Saturn. In April this year I picked up a left over 2017 Ram. It is a base model Tradesman regular cab long bed with manual everything. It has the 3.6 V6, 2wd, 3.55 rear end...
