    Driveshaft upgrade would be a plus

    I definitely agree on the line lock, can't believe they didn't put that in. Stronger driveshaft and factory safety loop(s).

    Of course it should of had wider rear fenders to allow 11" wheels. That's it's biggest drawback, undertired.

    You can get 11 inch rims to fit out back as it is on 305 rubber with no modification....315 with slight modification to the plastic inner fender liners.
    I wouldn't have minded wider fenders though for a more aggressive look and even wider rubber....like 335's :)

    The tire issue is not width, but more to do with 20"-17" wheels , you would be surprised what a 9.5 tire can do on the right wheels.
    Drive shafts have always been an issue with the SRT product line when DR or slicks hook hard.

    I'm probably going to run 335's on 11" wheels on mine anyway, even if they stick out a little, because yes, wide tires look mean.

    The question that I want answered is what is the smallest diameter wheel that will clear the brakes in the back. I would love more sidewall...

    That could be posable I know the current company is just a small company and cant seem to be able supply enuff superchargers hence the long wait for hellcats so as long as they stay with A twin screw type and not a roots style supercharger I will be happy
    twin screw

    Ummm, they are not a small company, they have been in business since 1853, longer than the Dodge Brothers, a spinoff of theirs formed Isuzu in 1929. FCA would not pick some podunk tiny company after all the work they put in this powerplant.

    Fiat is also a big company but the srt cars except the viper are all made in one plant so let me rephrase the supercharger plant that's supply s the supercharger for the hellcat is small here is some reading for u but u are correct there are a large company.The Biggest Factor Preventing a Hellcat Jeep - Challenger Charger Success - Torque News View attachment 3267
