    Should be good for hauling wood, towing or whatever else you use a truck for :D

    C-Note--I believe towing is a no no with these trucks. The frame is too light to handle the engine torque pulling a trailer, but getting wood (pun intended), should be fun. I looked at them back when they came out -only manuals back then, but went with an extended cab Hemi-Ram, loved that truck, then onto a Durango Hemi, now an 07 Hemi Aspen (hate that name). They were all good for towing the viper.
    Check with the dealer before you try to tow to be safe. Is yours an automatic or manual.

    Good luck with it!

    Thanks Bandit, the towing comment was just a joke. I have a cummins that I use for that. It is actually the clutch and transmission that are the issue with towing. All of that standard cab Viper trucks had the six speed Viper trans and all of the quad cabs came with automatics. The quad cabs had a high tow rating that was afforded by the use of the automatic transmission.

    I am really just going to use this truck to make Vet owners feel bad about themselves :)

    Super nice machine. I would love to replace my 1997 Ram SST with an SRT-10 pickup. What kind of power does it make with the Paxton?

    Not sure what it is making for power. The Paxton was installed by a dodge dealer and was not dynoed. I will be sending the truck to DC here in the near future and we will see. I think with a little work it will put down about 700 :)

    Better add some incognito rims, remove the badging and maybe put a set of regular Ram hardware (front bumper, hood) on it or those Vette owners will already know what's up and not wanna play :)

    I still have some room yet, I may have to build another garage some day :)

    I was going to get a yellow one but they are so slow that they don't hold their resale value as well as the much faster black ones do.:rolaugh:
