    My New (Used) 2008 Durango Limited!

    Picked this up a few days ago. 2008 Durango Limited. Brilliant Black on Gray Leather Interior. Every option available installed! 5.7L. RER MyGig NAV with Alpine Premium Audio and Subwoofer. Rear DVD. Tow Package and 20" Chrome Clad wheels. 160K miles for $3500. w00t! I believe these retailed for over $36k new. Real pictures to follow but these stock photos look just like what I bought.














    Ordered some AVS Window Vent Visors for it already along with a Sunroof Deflector.

    Got it from a Wholesaler lot here in AR that advertised it on Craigs List. Title is from TN. Registered it today for a whopping $13. No tax as the sale price was under $4k. Insurance rate is the same as my 2004 Durango SLT 4x2 with the 4.7L.

    Guess it was luck that I stumbled across it. Was just perusing CL checking prices on various generations of Durangos and spotted it.

    Now just need to clean up the 2004 SLT and list it on CL. Maybe around $2k and work down from there!

    Was looking through the owners manual regarding Scheduled Maintenance and it's pretty confusing. Only one schedule in there and indicates changing the spark plugs at 30k mile intervals??? Also says the 5.7L has one spark plug per cylinder? Thought all the 5.7L Hemis had 2 plugs/cylinder? Can someone confirm this......for a 2008?

    Not sure of the year of the change, but newer 5.7's have 2 plugs each cylinder. I believe it was when the "Eagle" 5.7 was introduced....I'm sure someone with the exact change over will chime in soon.

    I'll wait for the Factory Service Manual set I bought off Eghey to get here before worrying too much about the Spark Plugs. Right now it idles super smooth in park or drive so I'm guessing the plugs are in decent enough shape. Don't have any maintenance records on it so can't say for sure when they were last changed.

    All 3rd gen Hemi's (2003 - present) have 2 plugs per cylinder.
    30K change interval is correct assuming it has factory style copper plugs in it.
    If someone swapped them out for Platinum or Iridium then you should be good. I'd pull one and check the plug type and gap.

    A few real pictures. A little dirty from my 400+ mile business trip earlier in the week. The price you pay for "Brilliant Black" !

    Passenger headlight is cloudy and most likely original. Driver headlight looks new and obviously replaced recently. Ordered a new pair of headlights along with LED bulbs just like I installed in my 2004 SLT.

    Fog Lights are cloudy also. Ordered emplacements along with LED bulbs for them.

    Ordered solid chrome lug nuts. The original capped ones suck and are discolored.

    AVS In Channel Window Vent Visors and Sunroof Deflector will be here later this week. That should about do it for the exterior.

    Ordered Filters and Fluids to bring all the maintenance up to date. Loving this Beast!
