Thread: Delivery Day

  1. #1

    Delivery Day

    My delivery day is coming soon, hopefully in 6 days, and I want to hit the ground running with the car. I've seen a lot of people recommending mods to help the car out and was wondering if I'm missing anything. I plan on driving the car whenever I can barring salt and snow in NY/NJ, so far I am going to get a car cover (most likely cover king), rock guards, sun visor for the interior, window regulators, and potentially a seat lowering kit. Is there anything I'm missing or you guys recommend and preferred brands?

    Congrats on finally snagging one. If you're doing the window regulators then may as well do the window boss kit as well. On my list of projects coming up.

    Window regulators, window boss kit, and if it has the stoppers under the seat you should remove them. They measure about 1 and 1/4 inch if memory serves me correct but because they sit on top of the rail you get near a 2" total drop which is needed.

    May as well put some sound deadening in the doors while they are apart.

    For looks a TA spoiler is a good look.

    Thank you, I'm planning on doing that once the salt comes and I cant drive the car for a while, or maybe on one of these weekends.

    I was considering putting a heat shield on the rocker panels to prevent the white turning yellow, not sure if this is guaranteed tho :/

    PPF is already on it and plan on ceramic coating it soon, tires are going on in the spring, and how difficult is it to change out those other parts?

    Sound deadening is something that completely slipped my mind is one of my top priorities, even though the windows will be down 99% of the time it'll be nice to have silence on phone calls. I believe the TA 1.0 lip is on currently

    I'm fairly confident just the TA 1.0 rear lip is on, but not sure if I want to go carbon accents on the outside yet. Any other aero options I can do without changing suspension?

    Looks awesome, just took delivery and I have the TA 1.0 wing, theres a small little flap that looks like a rock guard I was going to get, but not entirely sure if it is. Do you know if the vipers came with any sort of flap?

    If you’re talking the flap that protrudes from the front splitters on a TA2.0 it’s not a rock guard. I have added DSE stone chip guards to my car, though they are not installed in that picture. They come from DSE and we’re not offered from Dodge.

    These little flaps are the first thing that scrapes when you hit a bump, so it's like a sensor to let you know to be careful.

    I don't think I have that, its a tiny drop down in the back of the wheel wells
