Yea I wanna get a couple valet keys, so it still has the transponder in it but no buttons...if I can get one of those kinda keys for my 08

It doesn't use an actual "key" so to speak lol

But it's cheap! Was it to much drone? I really want to keep it simple and it doesn't get any simpler than a cheap cat-back.
If it was to loud, then I can look into the Gibson.
I'll be in your neck of the woods in Nov 23-28 You should bring the fam out to diner with me and the new wife

Ya it was the drone. It didn't matter if the MDS was on or off. You might have better luck since you have the 4.7L.

That would be Awesome! You will be in San Diego or just the SoCal area? If I am around we will definitely meet up! The 27th will be our 7 year anniversary and we usually try to leave the kids with family and get away for a bit. So we will see

Hmm, I know the Hemi is notorious for drone, My 4.7 seems perfect with my current muffler but since I have a cut crack on my pipes, I just want to re do it all and go with 3'' pipes all the way down.

Me and the wife will be in san diego (mini honey moon since we are limited on time) We will be staying by the strip? since we will not have a vehicle and we should be able to get to places just by walking and citu transportation. Maybe we can hit up a club after diner.

Boulder county. If u go up lefthand trail (service road 286 i believe) to 5 points and u take the trail farthest to the left it brings you to a small cave. Went maybe 200 feet back. Its obvious that people have been back there its not hard to get to.

Thats not a cave, its a mine. Theres lots of abandoned mines in the area that can be explored if youre careful.
Others in the area: Eldorado Canyon, Sugarloaf Mountain, Caribou Flats, Central City, and many more.

Careful being the operative word. That stuff gets sketch real fast.
