Hi Everyone,

I've had my TH since May of this year, but just getting around to introducing myself. I traded in my 2016 Hellcat Challenger (white 8 speed automatic with the satin black hood) on a Diamond Black Crystal TH with Laguna Leather Package, Panoramic Sunroof, tow group, black satin wheels, 3 season tires, etc.

So far, I have to admit, it's been a garage queen... only 120 miles. I plan to get some wheel time with it during the Fall.

Mods I have in mind are minor- cat back exhaust and CAI (so I can hear the blower whine).

Cheers!
Pete

Welcome. You must have a bunch of cars for an SUV not being used as a daily driver, but garage art.
Yes, my wife and I are blessed to be in a position where we have more than a couple of vehicles. Lots of hard work, good fortune, and persistence have afforded me that ability.

For daily commuting we have a couple of vehicles: a 2018 VW GTI and the wife's company car (2018 Ford Edge). We also have a 2018 Wrangler Unlimited JL that we lifted 2.5" and runs 37" tires. My other toy is a 2016 BMW R9T motorcycle.

I am a long time "car guy" and have owned many street rods, hot rods, sports cars, muscle cars (old and modern) and a slew of motorcycles (From Japanese sport bikes to HD cruisers).

That said, I really love the Hellcat engine... especially in the Trackhawk. I think it is the perfect union of utility, luxury, and muscle.

Welcome to the forum Pete! Little sad to hear that your TH hasn't been given much time to roam free.
I will do my best to get some miles on it this Fall... I need to. My Hellcat Challenger had over 8000 miles on it when I traded it in and it was purely a pleasure vehicle. I should have mentioned that I traded in a 2017 Grand Cherokee Overland, with over 14K miles, along with the Hellcat when I got the Trackhawk. So I was already familiar with the Grand Cherokee platform.

Where in Delaware are you? I saw a great looking red Trackhawk in Lewes a week or so ago.

I am in Ocean View (Bethany) area. My Trackhawk is black, so that wasn't me that you saw up in Lewes. I haven't seen very many Trackhawks around but plenty of SRTs.

I have a place in Ocean View / Bethany too, at the end of Fred Hudson. I'll keep a look out for you. I have a granite trackhawk, a white 2 door Wrangler, or and a couple other 6.2 supercharged cars.
