WRAP: 813 Customs wrapped the Challenger in 3M matte charcoal metallic vinyl with gloss-black stripes and a matte-red pinstripe. The finish looks nearly matte black in the shade and shiny gunmetal in the sun. solutions.3m.com

LIGHTING: Owner of 813 Customs Joe Barravecchio installed a set of red Oracle halo lights in addition to the LED fog lights. 813customs.com

WHEELS/TIRES/SUSPENSION: Butler Tire of Alpharetta, Georgia, not only got the drop perfected using an Eibach Pro-Kit, but they also matched the perfect Pirelli tire to the Forgiato Maglia wheels so it sits just right.

INTERIOR: The SRT8’s interior is acceptable in stock form, but it needed some updating, so Evo took a page from the Redline 392 models and went with all-red Katzkin leather with black SRT embroidery. katzkin.com

AUDIO: 813 Customs and Addictive Audio transformed the Challenger’s bland factory audio system from mild to wild with a Pioneer AppRadio3 up front and Addictive Audio and Krome Audio throughout. One hit and you’re hooked! addictive-audio.com
