I would have to look up how many miles it’s been since it was installed but I think that it was installed after about 21,000 miles on the odometer. The vehicle has always been maintained by University Dodge in Davie, Florida or Dadeland Dodge in Miami. University Dodge is where Ray Shank worked and where the supercharger system was installed. That is also where Mark Leslie was the service manager and he is now the service director at a sister dealership. Original tranny with no problems whatsoever. The key is not to power brake it beyond 1500 RPM and to be religious about changing the fluids. ( Those who blew out their transfer cases generally were power breaking at high RPMs like 5000 RPM. Being a gearhead since I’m 11 years old ( 63 years ago), I knew that made no sense whatsoever and never did it.) I would not drive it across the country just because I would not want to put that many miles on it and expose it to the elements on the interstate freeways. My recommendation would be to have the vehicle picked up and delivered by a carrier.

By the way, the vehicle will come with the Diablo predator tuner. It has the calibration Johan created on it.

You might wish to know why I’m selling it now. After I got my Trackhawk in 2019, I intended to sell it but it’s one of my four high performance babies and I couldn’t bring myself to do that until now. It is better looking and more distinctive than my Trackhawk which looks like Batman‘s SUV and many of whose design features are available on lesser grand Cherokees. It is also 573 pounds lighter than the Trackhawk. When I drive the SRT8 people always ask whether it’s appearance is custom. When I tell them the dual exhaust, the wheels, and the chrome are factory, they are surprised.
