As of 12/08
GTX Parts:Mike Miller
1.574.970.7787

I had a very nice long talk with the parts Mg. at L.A. West just now. I was actually given some much wanted info. on my truck that the Stealer didn't know or didn't care.. For anyone interested here is just a few of the things I found out:

1. Total production of All colors of GTX's in 2004 was 433 units..
2. 211 Of those 433 were Hemi Orange

3. 2005 are still being made & will be until end of Sept.. He says Production #'s should be close to same or less that 433 this model year.. Again with over 1/2 being Hemi Orange and bal, split between Sublime & Purple and Banana Yellow..

4. Exhaust on all 2004 & 2005 were made by Pacesetter , and are not a Standard Pacesetter part # as they specifically made this exhaust for L.A. because they were after a distinctive sound.

5. Any & all parts, Stripes, Floor Mats, Seats etc are avail, Directly from L.A. West to replace anything part you may need *** As long as you are listed in their System as Owner of the particular #rd Truck..

6. Paint is avail. Locally at any Dupont Automotive paint supplier. & There is a very important aspect of the paint if you or your body man wants to Color Match your truck..I have that information if anyone needs it..

7. 2006 GTX's??? Not Likely!! But Here is what they have coming out..You may like it???

8. They are making "Vanilla White & Banana Yellow GTX's!!!!


Hope this info. may help some of us GTX owners?
Take Care,
Jeff

All;

I have to send props out to LA West and there staff on how quickly they responded to my warranty requests. My rims were peeling and my exhaust had a busted baffler inside and they jumped right on it and replaced the rims and exhaust within a week...

Thanks to Charles at LA West for his help!!!

They inspected and took pictures and sent the pictures to LA West and they agreed they were bad...

The exhaust was very-very noisy

I spoke with the sales manager at LA West before purchasing my Daytona because I liked the GTXtreme's looks, but needed a quad cab. He said a total of 32 (yes, just 32) quad cabs were built in '05, but that they would be building more of those in '06.

I saw a quad cab on ebay a few months ago, and emailed the seller as to how rare the truck was, which he was not aware of.
