Hey guys, I'm new here. Picking up my Rumble Bee this weekend. I'm a big Mopar guy, been driving them now for some years, and have always wanted a Rumble Bee, but never needed a truck... well now I need a truck, so I searched everywhere and found a really good looking truck (albeit High Mileage) close to home for a great price. I'll post pics when I get it. For now, you can admire my cars, both are Caliber SRT4s The orange one is built for drag racing and puts about 500hp to the ground when using race fuel. The black one was stock, but I have sold it in order to purchase the truck. These are great cars, and tons of fun to drive, if I enjoy the rumble bee 1/2 as much as I like these, it'll be worth every penny.

I was looking at all sorts of Bees and Daytonas and I refused to buy a boring color (Silver or Black). It was either going to be a GoMango Daytona or A Solar Yellow Bee. But it had to be 4x4 and I much preferred regular cab to keep size down, plus they look cooler and go faster.

So the one I settled on is a Rumble Bee regular cab (obviously) 4x4 in SOLAR YELLOW!!! Thing looks awesome, but there is already a handful of stuff i'd like to do.

- Tonneau Cover (Prefer a hard one painted Yellow but may settle on a black leather one)
- Seat Covers (Thinking about leatherseats.com for these)
- Honeycomb Grille and Cross hairs Painted gloss black
- Coat the underside of the truck
- Tint the windows
- Continue the stripes all the way down (and across the cover if I get a hard one)
- Eventually thinking of Black SRT10 Reps (Summer item)
- Debating black headlights still
- Either delete badges, or paint them gloss black.
- Ipod hookup (anyone have a solution for this with stock headunit?)

As far as performance goes, I am going to be boring and keep it stock. I have a fast car in the SRT4, I have some old muscle to work on, I dont need this truck to be a project, just a nice cool reliable truck.

BTW, for those wondering, My SRT4 was once the 4th fastest caliber in the world running an 11.75 in the 1/4 mile. It's now been passed by one or two guys. 100% street legal, could be daily driven, only thing swapped at the track is the front tires for slicks, and fill it up with race fuel. Doing some more work to it, (limited slip, New Clutch, PnP Head, Cams, Solid Motor Mounts) and going to try and get the car under 11.62 to take the title of the world's fastest stock body turbo Caliber SRT4.

OH yeah, And I want to do Yellow Gauge Faces, anyone have an idea where I can get these? I know I can call Black Cat Customs and get them to custom make me something, but I thought I've heard of other companies too that have predesigned ones.
