Project Sport Truck SRT8

I am two weeks into a build on a black SRT8 to be used as a project vehicle in Sport Truck magazine. During this build we are making some one off items that may have interest to some of you. If there is a demand I may run some of these items for retail sale. Here is a list of the changes we are doing on this build. I noted the items I would be interested in running extra of. I will post sneek peek photagraphy of the completed vehicle in 3-4 weeks.

Thanks

B&B Stainless Exhaust. They will put this system into production once completed.

True Flow Sealed Air Intake. As of now its a one off item. I may produce more.

Slotted and Cross drilled rotors. This is a one off set but will have more in the future.

Kevlar Compound Brake Pads. Super low dust and killer stopping power. I will do more of these with the rotors soon.

Giovanna 22'' custom wheels. These are one off wheels being specifically machined for this project truck.

Pirelli tires

Custom polished billet aluminum door guards with SRT8 logo. These replace the chrome door guards that say Grand Cherokee. I can produce more of these items.

Custom billet aluminum antenna. Replaces antenna and chrome antenna base. This polished billet antenna is about 6'' tall. I can produce more of these items.

Lowering spring. This is an Eibach item we are waiting on. Still no due date yet. I need a lowering spring ASAP if anyone knows of an available spring already on the market.

Carbon fiber interior kit. This is available through Superior Dash Company.

Other items done to this project vehicle. High and Low beam Phillips HID system, Color match HOEN halogen drive lights, Speaker swap out and 8''sub cabinet, Color match rear deck spoiler, All jeep logos removed from front, rear, shift nob, and steering wheel. Shift nob and steering wheel have carbon fiber inserts with SRT8 logo to replace the Jeep logo. Stant 180 thermostat.

Re: Project Sport Truck SRT8

Will do... I will post the interior pics next week. The wheels are done but I am waiting for the rotors to get back from silver cad plating before I can finish the brakes and mount the wheels. Here is the engine shot with the intake. Also a few pics of my other ride and some of the parts I built for it. I owned a company called RM Racing where we build the Acura NSX, C5 Vett, and the Ferrari 360 upgrades. I sold this company and started True Flow. We build a project truck each year to support our filter and intake line.

Re: Project Sport Truck SRT8

Me too me too! I'll take the exhaust, intake, rotors, pads, antenna...

I bought a bi-xenon police/harley H4 system from your old company about 6 years ago. Back then very few cars had HID, let alone bikes... that thing was the cat's balls. You wouldn't believe how many people would just stare into the light like a deer. And it was great to see the reaction of people who knew what it was and couldn't believe it was on a bike. Plus it still works great! Keep up the good work.

Re: Project Sport Truck SRT8

I spoke with Eibach today on the springs and It looks like a no go. I have other options but it would take several months and a minimum order of 50 sets. This is the company in Holland that built all our Ferrari 360 springs in the past. Not sure what to do on this matter. Has anyone heard of any other companies looking to builds springs??? I have talked to Intrax, Eibach, and H&R.

Thanks
Randy

Re: Project Sport Truck SRT8

rm360, you plan to change the chrome to aluminum on the lower part of the door, but what are you gonna do with the chrome just under the windows? If you change one you should probably change all of it. Chrome mixed with aluminum on the same door or car for that matter is a little tacky. It is one or the other, don't you think?
