After much consideration I have traded my Charger for a 2006 SRT10 Ram Truck. My dealer did an even swap and let me sale the mods off it..heads, cam, intake, CAI, B&G Flash...to another member of the Charger forums.

The truck has only 2,300 miles, always garaged and was never driven in the rain. I gained an extra 13 months/15,000 miles of warranty with this trade.

Why did I trade?..The Charger was the first car to get me out of a truck in about 30 yrs....every car I have owned since 1976 has been for my wife...I just bought her what I wanted..but I always bought a truck as my ride....over the last 8 yrs I have bought her what she wanted...I guest that is what got me interested in getting a car...gonna miss the Charger though.:cry:

Dont worry...or maybe you should...I will still be hanging around this forum..

Here are some pictures..

The Charger's new garage till it sells...can you see the 69 Road Runner behind it?








The truck is a numbered limited edition with the Night Runner package. The badge says 87 of 400 but chrysler stopped production before hitting 400. They only made 79 reg cabs and 114 quad cabs with the Night Runner package.

To each his own I guess but congrats on your new ride. Also is it just me or does your old charger look sad in that picture. :sad:

eh...there is truth to your gas mileage statement TN
but 9 mpg just really threw me as well, that would be WAY to expensive for me to fill up

Actually it does much better than what it says...I drove the truck back from Dallas.. interstate all the way at 80-90mph...got 17.4 that is better than what my wife's durango gets..........so far around town I have averaged 12.1...the QC version I had only got about 9 around town..

Damn nice truck, I must say! I'm considering one myself...but I would have to trade my Daytona for it, and I'm not sure that I'm willing to part with my Banana! I've seen some of the engine work that was done on one in person...and that thing was bad ass! Full race cam but they had issues with the idle at first...but it's running sweet and strong. One of those trucks that you could put a million dollars on the dash and the passenger would never be able to grab it on launch! It's a beast! Congrats, TNCharger....you have yourself one hell of a beast!

Thanks TB....I understand completely about hesitation of trading your banana....I had a hard time handing the Charger keys to the dealer..:cry: ...BTW...I already have some mods ordered that should get me 600HP+ at the wheels......think FI..:)

If you would quit sniffing those chemical concoctions and pay attention around here you would know that she had trouble driving the quad cab because it was so long...we traded it for a Durango last December..:rolleyes: ......

Thanks HC....:)

Took me a minute to figure why you called me Mikey..duh...the "beautiful truck" compliment means a lot coming from someone that knows first hand what it is to own a beautiful vehicle..:)

I've got a friend thinking about trading his SRT-4 for a used SRT10 Ram. I doubt the truck really gets 9 MPG, unless it is all city, and the driver has a bit of a lead foot. I get 12-14 MPG city in my daytona with a bit of "colorful driving". The difference isn't that big considering it is a truck with 505 horsepower compared to my car with 350.

I was thinking of getting one also.....since gas prices have been going up the last few years, there are plenty of them on dealers lots, with nice prices, as people traded them in for a better mileage vehicle............but, I do mostly city driving, and it would kill me with gas prices.

Your's is an awesome looking truck, and a worthy trade.

Best of luck........
