    Gen 5 Hood Inserts

    Hello, Does anyone know if the 2013 Gen 5 SRT hood inserts are all the same for the left side and same for right side? I have a SRT hood and having trouble identifying which inserts I need. On my 2008 hood each bezel was different and I can't figure out if that is the same for the Gen 5 SRT...

    Sound System & Horn not operational?

    Any update on this? Anybody have luck fixing it? Same symptoms on my 2013 Viper, my horn does not work and all other controls on steering wheel work. I actually replaced the fuse (even though the other one was not broke) and the horn actually worked but then about 2 minutes later the horn...

    How to adjust window so it doesnt hit frame

    Hello, Does anyone know how to adjust the window inboard or outboard so it does not hit the frame when closing. I have a 2013 Viper and when you close the driver side door and the window rolls slightly up, it hits the frame. It is not the up and down that needs adjusting but the in and out. I...

    Viper Tech in Austin Texas

    I just wanted to follow up on this in case anybody needed a good honest shop in the Austin/Georgetown area that will work on Vipers. I have been taking my Viper to H&H Auto Repair in Georgetown on N Austin Ave. They have changed trans and axle fluids, replace ball joints, sway bar end links...

    2013 Viper - no lock/unlock with buttons or FOB

    My 2006 has acted up in the past too. One day the doors would not even close. The door latch would stay open and not shut no matter what I did or button I pushed. Luckily I was home and not out when it happened. Some people have reported just disconnecting the battery and it reset the BCM...

    Need tire help! And how bad are old tires….

    Also, just wanted to clarify because it took me a moment to realize it. Jon with Viper Parts Rack is not same as Tire Rack. All the company names run together to me. If you do get a quote from him my experience is it best to call versus trying to navigate his website which may up to date. Not...

    Need tire help! And how bad are old tires….

    Another thumbs up for Contintental Extreme Sports. I just had them installed a few weeks ago. I had a really good experience with Jon at Viper Rack Parts. He had the tires shipped to me super fast. As SA Heat mentioned, I think the 355 fit the rear wheel better. Plus, it was the least...

    Where to get 335/30r18 tires mounted

    I just had a really good experience with a mobile tire change company. They came out to my house and change all my tires. It seems like (this franchise anyway) has the equipment to handle most tires sizes. The 355/30r19 tires was a non issue for them. Looks like they have somebody in Chicago...

    What did you do to your Viper today?

    Great! Thank you Dean.

    What did you do to your Viper today?

    Doing a little more searching, I now see there are different groups that have reserved days/times to run out there. I came across Chin Track Days but if you have recommendations to a particular group to get started with I am all ears. Thanks!

    What did you do to your Viper today?

    Do you have any information on that you can share? I would love to eventually get involved doing track days. I have done the longhorn race experience at COTA which was ok but I am sure it is a completely different experience using your own car.

    Viper Tech in Austin Texas

    That was my initial thought too... it is just a dodge. But after the getting told from the dealerships they won't do basic service requests, it had me questioning. But I agree, I am sure it is not difficult to work on it and I could figure it out on my own, it would just be nice to be able...

    Viper Tech in Austin Texas

    Thank you for the heads up about Calvo. I called a shop that specializes in classic cars but said he can work on the Viper and will do service work. Change fluids, new rotors and brakes, etc... Not a Viper Tech but he seemed very knowledgeabIe. I will keep you posted if I decide to use him...

    Viper Tech in Austin Texas

    I called both the numbers listed above from 2007 just to see if by chance still his number. 1 number was disconnect and the other was generic voicemail and didn't leave a message. Thank you! I will contact them and see if they will do service or just performance upgrades. Hard to tell by their...

    Viper Tech in Austin Texas

    Does anybody have any recent recommendations for a Viper Tech in the North Austin/Round Rock/Georgetown area? Took my car to a dealership saying they can work on it only to call me back to saying they changed the oil but couldn't do anything else. I am hesitant to take it to another dealership...

    Thread size on shifter

    I appreciate the response Dean. Isn't that the stock thread? Only reason I am questioning it is a few knobs I have seen for sale say they only fit factory oem shifter and not hurst shifters. But I dont know squat about it. I have not been able to find out what the thread is for the hurst...

    Thread size on shifter

    Does anybody know what the knob thread size is for the Hurst Shifter? I have searched online and come up short trying to figure it out. I would like to purchase a new knob for it. This is the shifter that I think is installed on my car...

    Hood Screens

    I think that is my only concern. It is just a little bit easier for somebody to mess with if it does not have the vents on it. But I agree, I like the look of not having the vents. It is sort of sad that I think somebody may do something malicious to it. I try to park as close up front and in...

    Hood Screens

    That is a really good point. I can find similiar mesh and paint it or have someone powder coat them. I like the idea of $50 better than $900.

    Hood Screens

    Wow, Thank you Steve for the detailed reply and advice! It is all super helpful. I will start the search and setup ebay notifications but not be in a rush or concerned if I don't get them right away. I really appreciate the diagram with part numbers. That is going to save me time. Great tips...

    Hood Screens

    First time owner and super excited as I just took delivery of a 06 Viper. The previous owner put a Gen 4 hood on it. However there are no screens anywhere on the hood or front grill. Should I take the time and money to buy the screens or is ok to run it with no screens? My first inclination is...

    Stock Amplifier question on 06 SRT

    Thanks for posting this. I have been looking at the same Xtrons stereo and excited it fits without mods. I am curious, did you hook up a back up camera? If so, any insight on how you did that would be greatly appreciated. Trying to work through how to get the camera to turn on when shirt to...
