    Hello Everyone,

    Joseph R From Portland Oregon

    I'll try and get some pictures up later but I just got an 08 Hemi Orange Challenger SRT8. It's fairly stock from what I can tell.
    Looks like previous owner added an aftermarket cold air intake.
    I myself will probably keep it mostly stock, except for a few bolt-ons
    Additions that I plan on doing
    1. Remote start with Carlink add-on (already purchased, will install this weekend)
    2. Halo light conversion (headlights and fog lights (retro-fit), there is a place here locally that does them. I've found some places online that have them but I figure if do it locally I will have easier tech assistance if needed, they seem to have a pretty good rep in town.
    3. Shaker hood conversion hit
    4. Sequential taillights
    4. I was thinking about upgrading the stock Stereo Head unit to the RHR to get Bluetooth audio. I found an adapter that works perfectly, so this one goes to the bottom of the list


    Thank you!!!
    Cheers!

    Lol, well the more and more I read the longer my list gets.
    I guess by mostly "stock" I really meant overall exterior look....at least that's what I'm telling myself....

    Now back to more reading to see what else I add to my upgrade list....
