I want to order a 2021 Challenger Redeye Widebody. I’m just not sure I want to make this my daily driver with Chicago winters. It’s my baby, Blown 2007 with 30,000 miles. I do have a set of blizzaks on stock rims just sitting in storage. Just not sure I’m ready. Lol. What do you guys think?

Nice jeep! It’s even got the metal palella side moldings as well. Are you on the cherokeesrt8 forum?
Lol.. I used to be on that forum. I bought this Jeep from CarbonDave. I used to have a Redrock 2007 and would roadcourse with CMN1. Good eyes.

If it were me, I would not daily that in Chicago weathers... it's too nice and too damn well kept to do it. Buy something you won't care about.... sell that to someone who would appreciate it... I know I couldn't do it....

I remember someone on there saying they always come back, especially after someone would sell their jeep, and it’s true! I had 2 ‘07s and an ‘08, traded that in on a 2017 hellcat lease. I’d love to get into another hellcat, but damn do I miss having a WK1. Chad still has his red jeep & is active. Some of the OG members are still there, and there has been a recurrence of a few familiar faces, but most of the people have moved on to other platforms

That will make a killer stable-mate for the Challenger! I probably couldn’t do it, myself. I planned on daily driving my Challenger Hellcat until winter got closer and then I bought a used Jeep Wrangler. I don’t think I could subject a pampered, low mile WK1 SRT8 to the elements any more than a brand new Hellcat. Good thing is you have several months now to figure something else out.

I would not own a newer SRT vehicle in Chicago unless I could lock it up in a secure garage whenever I wasn't driving it.

Winter driving ? Fluid Film or Rust Check it. PPF the front, ceramic coat and drive it! Who are you saving it for ? The next guy?
It’s nice having a fast year round car ... just do the rust protect yearly and paint protect it 1 every 3 - it’ll be fine .

Most will probably say it’s too nice, don’t daily the jeep, etc. I say life is too short to drive cars that don’t make you smile every single time you get behind the wheel! We never know when gas will crush those of us who remain internal combustion muscle car junkies, or some other unforeseen restriction/calamity that could appear in the future. Drive that bad boy daily and don’t save it for the next guy. Enjoy it bro... Nice ride btw! Very clean looking OP.

It's a 2007. Not worth anything other than your sentimental value really. Drive it, it’s about time.

I’d drive it. It’s 14 years old. Beautiful yes. But what are you saving it for.
