Welcome to the home of the January 2006 IOM!!!!

About me:
My name is Ryan, I'm 17, I got my license in June of 2005. The Trep is my first car, and no I'm not a spoiled rich boy, I worked at the hardware store my dad manages from the age of 14 to earn the $ for it. I live in North Brookfield, Massachusetts. I love cars, especially Mopar and I love my ES, what an awesome car, plenty of power, plenty of room, comfy as hell, sweet looking, I mean what more could a guy want? I've been a member here since May, when i inquired about what i should look for in an Intrepid. Then I bought my 2002 ES, and the rest, as they say, is history.

Me with car:

(i'm not angry, i dunno why I looked that way)

Now, my 2002 ES, I picked it up on May 19th 2005 from Brookfield Motors, the local Dodge Dealer, they had had it since 2003, one of their salesmen was driving it

The day I brought her home, good and stock:



As she looks as of the summer of 2006, no longer stock :biggthump :

thanks man!
makes me feel good, I've loved your Trep since the moment i saw it!

I have definitely been considering the clear corners mod, however drilling into my lights just seems a bit scary, I dont want to **** them up, i'll probably get over it and do it eventually

my doors are already debadged, i dunno why, but i kinda like it with just debadged doors, I've always been a big fan of Dodge and im proud to show I have one, however i do need a new dodge badge for the trunk, the chrome is peeling on mine, and the chrome is long gone from my ES badge, so im hoping to get new badging when i hit the yard with scott

@DodgeyAussie: thanks man! It is pretty nice to not have to worry about paying for anything but mods and insurance, and of course gas, i dont have a girlfriend either, so its just my car...

@sinastis: thanks!

now i just have to take some pictures of my new spoiler, the ones i took the night my dad and i put it on are too dark to really see it

The smartest thing i have ever heard in my life coming from a 16 yr old!

check this mod out, i had this one for a while... just have it cut and it will start your intrepid just fine. as long as you dont have that computer chip thing... but that can be bypassed at any automotive electronic store.

haha, yeah, well, i still wouldnt mind having a girlfriend, but im glad i dont have to spend money on one, it all goes towards the Trep

oooo, Viper keyblanks, now theres an idea, much nicer and classier than the regular old ram head ones
ill have to invest in a couple, i think i can have them cut at work (if they fit in our ancient key machine)

Nice trep. It's also nice to see a person your age actually work to buy their first car. It makes you appreciate it that much more.
thanks man, yeah, i was originally working towards a Dodge Ram, but i ended up not wanting to spend the extra money on gas, plus my parents werent too keen on the idea, so anyway i saved and saved and now i only owe my gramp 1k on it, which i pay back monthly, and it sure does make me appreciate it, i baby this car like nothing else in my life
raztrep said:
Good start, if your afraid to drill into your headlights yourself talk to slewis.
yeah, i must admit im not too keen on the idea, im sure ill get over it though and do it anyway, i mean, slewis' tutorial only has a few steps, I can handle it

Your car is looking great, keep up the great work. Do you have a final pic of the calipers painted? What spoiler did you get?
the painted calipers, although they are hard to see because of the lighting, are in one of the pics at the bottom of my sig, and you can see the wing in the updated pics i just put up
thanks though man, your trep is niiice
