    I hate to say this, but I probably know more about this vehicle than most Dealers I've spoken with. The "Painted/Polished" wheels on the R/T are NOT the "standard", as you suspect. The standard wheel with the R/T is, indeed, the 20-inch Hyper Black Aluminum. Also standard on the Rallye.

    The "Painted/Polished" OPTION on the R/T is the 20-inch Polished Aluminum with Gloss Black Pockets. These are not offered on the Rallye.

    I must be old-school because I like that little bit of bling with those optional wheels on the R/T, but not a fan of the R/T, itself (except for the Performance Suspension Tuning). I do not like everything in "stealth mode" -- body-color grills, dark wheels, body-color mirrors, etc. Having said that, I was surprised that I found the Red Taillight Bar fit so well, in my opinion, with the Redline Red 2 Coat Pearl color option on the Citadel that I'm considering. I was not a fan of the red color until I noticed that. Because it seemed "stealthy", and less like a forced idea. Strange, yes?

    Agree 100%. I had the same experience with the wheels. I am the opposite to you - I wanted the standard Hyper bk. I ended up with a Granite Crystal R/T AWD. I did look at a red one on a local dealers lot but my wife insisted on the darker color. I also liked the Max Steel.

    I'm a chrome guy historically. I like the R/T and the Citadel. Pick your poison and hybrid it from there with mods.

    2014 Citadel AWD on orde
    Ordered a Citadel Black Ext Black\Tan Int AWD V6 2014 with fleet manager, James Mulder of Normandin CDJ in San Jose, CA on 10-18-2013. Options include: 2nd row captain chairs with storage console, Trailer Tow Group, Technology Group, Rear Bluray Entertainment Center, Mopar Black Appearance Group. Will be shopping for JGC SRT8 wheels. The Dodge VOTs site states the car status is in "scheduled production" as of this posting. I was told approximately 5 weeks.

    Thanks! I'm very excited! I've owned Japanese cars all my life. This Durango will be my first American badged ride. Like yourself, my first mod will be a baby seat Today, I got my 3rd order tracking email from Dodge:

    Dear Customer,

    Your new Dodge is beginning to build! You can anticipate your vehicle to progress through the next few stages of production over the next 10 days. Our next email to you will communicate that your vehicle has left the plant and is in route to your dealership.

    We will contact you next when your vehicle build is complete. Please be patient as we work to provide you with a new Dodge built to your specifications. We sincerely appreciate your business.

    Thank you,
    The Dodge Brand Team


    Wooohooo! Finally!!!

    Dodge must be looking at this forum because I just logged into the VOTS site, and now it has shipped!!! WOW!!! Thank you forum! OK Dodge, don't forget to delivery our fellow member, Trifecta's ride too!

    I tend to keep my cars for over 10 years so I'm going to buy the Mopar Lifetime warranty. Don't want to chance it with this new 8 speed tranny that haven't got much history on the books. Not only that I don't want to be ridiculed by my Import auto loving friends and families if this Durango takes a crap.

    The lifetime warranty is a decent deal, I think; I bought one for my '14 GC.

    There are many reputable Chrysler Service Contract vendors online (e.g the grandfather of guy that runs chryslerwarrantys.com sold cars to my grandfather) .. but I think you'll find your dealer to be pretty elastic on the price, once you enlighten him/her.

    Thanks for the input. Normandin of San Jose, CA will be giving me the equivalent of employee price on the Lifetime warranty. Will post a new thread to call upon members on their experiences with Chrysler's Lifetime warranty if it hasn't been posted.
