    Vadango's 2011 Durango Journal

    Hey all. I figured i'd start a journal showing you my 2011 Durango Citadel awd Hemi. I just bought the car 3 months ago with 54,000 miles. It now had 56,000. mileage will be low since we do not use it everyday. We bought it as a family vehicle with 2 kids. we like the style and 3 row seating. Its pretty much loaded with nav, dvd player, backup sensors, blind spot detection...The list goes on. My wife loves the car and i love it for its towing capabilities. You're probably wondering what I tow... well, i have a 16ft Brimar flatbed trailer to tow this to racetracks.


    Anyways, back to the Durango, My first upgrade was to add a oil catch can. I came across an ebay member with zero feedback, but had the billet can for sale with a buy it now price of $80. I took the risk and it came 3 days later. Here are pics of it installed.

    Before shot

    Hooking the hoses and just trying to make it look stock like it came from the factory

    Finished product


    Overall, very straight forward install. This was much easier than trying to put the engine cover back on...

    Next up is the Gibson exhaust. Bought from another member here. It came with an xpipe. But im not sure if i will have that installed so it may be for sale soon.

    Stay tuned for more updates...

    I'm a pretty handy guy... But it makes me sad that there's no way I could ever accomplish many of the things I see here that I wish I could do to my D. You guys are super talented and should be really proud of your abilities and accomplishments.

    But this Wanna-be D enthusiast is insanely jealous of you all.

    I could probably handle a CAI and catch can.. But anything that requires a lift I'm pretty SOL on...lol.. And anything that requires welding for that matter too

    I was planning on installing the exhaust myself since I do have a welder, but with a 2 year old and 7 month old, I rarely have time to myself to tackle this exhaust on. There is an exhaust shop 5 min from my house who does really good work.

    I would install the X-pipe, if you're on the fence. it's really supposed to mellow out the exhaust. Not quiet it, but smooth it out for a more pleasant sound. It's been noted to decrease droning as well.

    Oh....and can we see some pics of the Beauty?
