Well...the time has come to part with the beast. I hardly drive it anymore as I have 3 vehicles.
None of which are a pickup...and that is what is on my shopping list as I need it for work. I've put less than 30k miles on it in the 4 1/2 years that I've owned it. I'm going to try to list everything that is in this Jeep, but I may overlook a thing or two. Feel free to ask any questions you may have. The Jeep will not be ready to sell until the middle of March, as it's going in the body shop for a front bumper replacement on March 7th. More details on that below. Alright, here we go:

2010 Jeep SRT8 in Black Crystal Pearlcoat - Fully loaded, with the exception of the media package. It is currently sitting at 90,910 miles, but with 40k miles on the drivetrain. The only oil that has ever been ran in the engine is the fully synthetic Rotella T6 5W-40.

Arrington 440 7.2L HEMI Stroker - Installed by True Street Performance, and tuned by AJ (HEMITUNER)

4.060 Bore / 4.250 Stroke
4340 Forged and Balanced K-1 Crankshaft
4340 K-1 Rods with ARP bolts; 6.125 Rod Length
MAHLE Pistons
11.3 Compression
Clevite 77 Bearings (Narrow)
Meiling High Performance Oil Pump
Custom cut 6XX Arrington Camshaft
HEMI Heads, Phase 4 ported; 2.07" Intake and 1.57" Exhaust Valves
6.1 HEMI Stage 2 Ported intake manifold
Cometic Gaskets
Harmonic Balancer
92mm Throttle Body
850cc Fuel Injectors
American Racing long tube headers
HEMI Tuner TCM Priceless
HEMI Engine Roller Rockers
Arrington's SRT8 JEEP Carbon Fiber Cold Air Intake
DiabloSport programmer with Air/Fuel ratio gauge
Billet technologies Catch can
Stant 180 thermostat
Corsa/mopar exhaust with deleted cats
Eibach lowering springs
Stock wheels powder coated black

Transmission was built by True Street Performance with Blue Top Solenoids and HEMI torque converter
True Street also built the rear end with a Wave Trac differential

Headlights and Foglights were built by Dan from DC Customs. Painted to match with Purple Angel Eyes and Red Halo's. Colors can be ran separately or together. - $1100
Tail Light Solutions Smoked LED rear tail lights with high powered reverse LED lights, along with TLS LED fogs on lower rear bumper - $400
Retains factory headunit with navigation, but door speakers have been upgraded to Focal's, along with a 12" JL Audio sub in a custom box. All of the speakers are pushed by a JL Audio 900/5 amp that is installed under the rear cargo storage area. - $3000

Wheels, and all chrome trim has been blacked out. Powdercoat on the wheels, plastidip on the trim. Wheels are wrapped in Toyo Proxes with the 275/315 combo.

A Beltech radar/jammer is installed in the Jeep. I have never had a speeding ticket in it, ever! I don't think the radar portion is really working anymore, so I just run my Escort and am ready to hit the brakes and double tap the bypass switch on the jammer. The sensors are located on the front bumper, and above the rear license plate.

Cons: The valve guide seals will need to be replaced at some point. There is no smoke whatsoever on acceleration, only a very light puff or two on deceleration while aggresively downshifting. I have videos from my DR650 driving cam from just last month as I was racing a brand new ZO6 to prove there is no smoke. Only 4 black marks on the highway from where I spun a bit!
However, I do go through a little less than a quart around every 1000 miles. The drivers side rear tire will need replacing before too much longer. It still has some tread...it's just starting to get thin. All 4 tires were replaced at the same time, but Discount Tire replaced the passenger side under warranty about a year ago. As seen on the Carfax, the front bumper has been damaged twice. I had someone run out at a 45 degree angle in front of me and clip the bumper. I saw him coming, so I slammed on the brakes. The edge of his rear bumper caught the front fascia, and peeled it like a banana. There was no other damage sustained to anything. I have pictures of both of the damage done by both incidents, so anyone interested can see that the frame was never touched. The paint on the intake has started to flake around the oil filler cap. Should've just had it powdercoated.

Pros: It's a flat out beast and just looks sexy!. Makes around 550hp to the wheels with a 3.5 second 0-60mph on the street...so it can hold its own! The paint and body are in amazing shape. I would give it a 9/10, due to it being 9 years old. It's been stored in my garage which is climate controlled. The seats show very little wear, and everything works as it should. I replaced the plugs around 3000 miles ago, and the rear cargo hatch struts last month. The floor mats have been replaced and look new with SRT8 emboidered into the fronts. The sound system hits hard, and I get nothing but compliments about the speaker box whenever I open the hatch out in public. The DC Customs head and fog lights are flat out sick! Again...nothing but compliments about them! Maintenance has been kept up to date by Bailey's Hyperformance here in Fort Worth. The transmission, transfer case, and front and rear differential fluids/oil were all changed out around 10k miles ago. I replaced both rear axle seals around the same time as they had started seeping. I thoroughly cleaned the inside of the wheels at the same time to clear off any of the gear oil that had collected.

That's everything that I can think of off the top of my head, but I will update the ad if I think of anything else. Like I said, please feel free to ask any questions that you may have. It is located in Fort Worth, TX. Asking 30k

Few more pics and the Carfax. Sorry, I tried rotating them before I loaded them...but they just went right back.

And the last that I have. As soon as I get it out of the body shop, I will update the ad with new pics.

My apologies, as this is the only pic I have under the hood. Yes, I know...it is filthy. It was just a fluke, and no longer looks that way though.

Well, I'm picking up the Jeep this week. The top end has been freshened up, a new water pump was installed after seeing a little coming out of the weep hole, and a new transmission thermostat was installed along with a new bracket. Somewhere along the way that bracket was lost and caused the thermostat to start rubbing on the header. It didn't rub a hole in the thermostat thank god, but it was enough to warrant a replacement. The front bumper was replaced with a Mopar replacement and looks fantastic again. Mileage is still around 91k miles, as I have been crazy busy with work and it's been in the body and race shop. It just had a fresh oil change as well. Lowering the price to 29k as I'm ready to get it gone. Still located in Fort Worth. Will post pics later this week after I pick it up and get a full detail done on it.

Well, here it is again! All cleaned up, and ready for a new owner to terrorize the streets! The entire top end has been freshened up along with a new waterpump, spark plugs, oil change, transmission thermostat, battery, and both engine knock sensors. Asking $30,000 now.
