With some deep pockets you can have both; The Ram SRT-10 and the Whine of a Supercharger.

I had a QC '05 and it seats 6, you can tow and I got average 14mpg. I loved the truck. I wish I still had it but I get bored easy and I sell things without thinking.

The problem I had was I wanted an '06 to get CANbus for all the cool radios and the '06 was bucket front seats. I have 4 kids so I needed that extra seat in the front. The '05 was the only option for me. I'll end up with another Viper but it'll be the car instead.

My '11 out the door was a tad over $25K with discounts and likely $10K cheaper than the elusive '06 RC NR SRT-10.

The goal was to have another SRT to go with my Challenger but I'm happy with the RT. Added Magnaflow and waiting on Diablo to mod the ECU before getting the CAI.

So definitely not the most practical idea, but here it goes.

I've been getting the itch for something different, we currently have a Honda Odyssey minivan for the family hauler, and a 05' Honda Accord that was meant to be a family hauler/commuter but then my wife got pregnant with our 3rd about 2 months after we bought it. Do'h.

The Accord doesn't really haul all of us, or the ATV for that matter and at the same time I'm going through my quarter life crisis (I'm 23 and had our first at 16). I looked into getting a C5 Vette because for the price, you can't beat it. But, it doesn't haul the family or to either.

So while out looking at trucks (again), I jokingly pointed at an 05' Srt 10 QC that was on the lot. My wife laughed at me, but once she saw the interior she was very interested in it as it offered all the features of our Accord (minus the moonroof). We took it for a ride, with my wife driving first and the big sh** eating grin never left her face. I took my turn and was hooked.

So here I sit with a vehicle that fills all the little voids my Accord doesn't. The list isn't long but basically: The V-10 brings out my inner child, my wife loves it (which says a lot because I couldn't get her out of the Accord for a C5, she loves that car), it hauls the kids comfortably, carries the ATV and has plenty of towing power for when we add to the stable. Not to mention, driving an inferno red viper powered truck does something for a man that a "pearl red redondo" Accord doesn't.

The downsides are obvious, the hit at the pump, but I'm thinking this will help me control the random drives I go on now, or at least earn some awesome fuel rebates. The mileage while not good, only seems to be a few points lower than other 1500s, almost makes it ok I live on base and commute about 3.5 miles to work each way. The other hit was insurance, which will be an $80 a month hit, or roughly $60 more a month than a 5.7 Hemi QC.

I know maintenance will be more, but tires, if done as a set seem to be a decent price (about $175 a piece) and parts through Rockauto didn't seem too ridiculous. The V10 leaves a lot more room in the engine bay since it's not covered in all the plastic like the 5.7, and spark plugs for example are right on top.

This truck obviously isn't a practical DD, but over the extra costs incurred I can't help but still be drawn to it. I haven't been able to get it out of my head since we drove it. I absolutely loved it and finally finding a truck (been looking for about 2 years) that we both love isn't making it any easier.

As I always do I over think the hell out of things and for once I'd just like to pull the trigger and make it happen. I can never seem to feel 100% about big purchases like this. I normally lean towards practicality, and while the Accord is nice, it's not filling the void I've had as I've never owned a "me" vehicle. Anyways, here's the one we're looking at :http://www.lithia.com/index.cfm?acti...oryID=18140033

Thanks!

That's a nice price but it has more miles than I would want on a Viper powered ride without knowing exactly what's to come in the next 15000 miles.

And it's not likely there are many Vipers running north of 75000 miles to give you any hints.

Good luck though with the search.

Well picked it up today for $21 and I'm pretty excited. I did end up purchasing an extended warranty for 5yrs to help cover some of the uncertainty.

Can't wait to get some more seat time in!

Congrats on picking up the 10. It's been a year now how has the truck been treating you.

The SRT-10 is the fastest production truck in the world. That should be reason enough to get one, and you will be the only one in your neighbor, city & sometimes state that has one. Or you can drive whatever everyone else is driving. One of a kind or just like everyone else.

Austrailian Holden VZ Maloo R8 is the fastest production truck on the planet. An Aussie El Camino, or a 2005-2006 GTO with a bed!

I don't know how many of these Aussie El Camino's you have in Texas, but I haven't seen any in Phoenix, so I don't think we have to worry about one pulling up beside us at a red light. I have had my 10 for two years and there's not too many pickup's on the streets that won't to mess with a 10.
