    So tomorrow, Thursday 11/12, I'm taking quite a trip to go pick up my PCP Hellcat Challenger. I'll be trailering a car up and the Hellcat back. Starting in SW Florida and heading to Ohio.

    Quite a hike.

    Then off to PA for a few, then NJ for a few and then back home.

    So I've put new load range E tires on the trailer, the basics like oil change, wiper blades, fuel filter. But I also threw new brakes on the truck. At 193k my 2006 Dodge 3500 still had the factory pads on it! And the backs still had a half a pad left. That's from all the hauling at night 7 days a week.

    I don't want to ever have to change this rear rotor

    I've been getting everything ready to go.
    Today I scrubbed the truck and trailer. And in a little while I load up the Super Bee into the trailer

    Trailer was FILTHY! Wow!

    If people want to follow along, I'll post here. I'll also be posting on the Instagram account @plum_crazy_hellcat.

    Tomorrow morning is highway time!!

    Were in Ohio are you getting your Challenger?
    I live in Western Nebraska and am also leaving tomorrow morning for Columbus Ohio to pick up my PCP Hellcat GH118280. It's a 1200 mile trip for us, one way. I thought about hauling my 2013 SRT Core Challenger for the trade but have decided to drive it instead and drive the Hellcat home. We've had a little snow this morning but hope everything is melted and dry by morning. The weather looks good to Ohio and back for at least the next 5 days. Wishing you a safe and trouble free trip. Can't wait to see the PCP Hellcat in person!

    Make sure you can get a hellcat up your trailer rear door. I could not on my enclosed trailer without the front lower splitter spoiler hitting the ramp on the way up. You may need various blocks of wood etc. You will also need to figure out how to strap it down as it is very difficult to get under the hellcat, especially the front with all the belly pans.

    Awesome to hear you are nearing the end of your long and arduous journey man. I have watched your trials and tribulations for over a year now and I look forward to being able to say "CONGRATS TIG!" when you arrive home safely.

    Oh and to quote someone on here......"pic or it didn't happen" :D

    Congrats, and safe travels!

    You should install the Glympse app, and share a link here once you are on the road!
