    So I'm thinking about replacing my DD "Cleadus", my 96 Cherokee. I've been seeing 2010-2014 former police chargers for under 10k and under 100k on the clock. I have no experience with the 5.7. Way better mpg than Cleadus. Should I go this way? What mods should I do that are low buck should I get one? Mid muffler delete or resonators?

    How about a 2010 Charger R/T All Wheel Drive? Fully loaded 89k for 10,500.00. I’m selling my baby so I can buy my son a car.
    Already has K&N Cold Air, Flowmaster Stainless Exhaust, original Mopar SRT8 ram air hood, newer Charger wheels and brand new tires. Also has the billet specitileis catch can installed. You won’t find a cleaner more maintned car.

        Don't let the low miles fool you on an ex police car. Ours sit and idle for hours, by the time they hit 100k they are ran into the ground. If you get one try to find a Highway patrol or admin type car not one from a smaller agency.

          Thanks for the offer, I'm still thinking about going forward. You're also a little far away, I do like the ride though. Hope you can sell it. Price is right

          Detective cars are generally the nicest of ex police. Had a Yuma plain clothes crown vic 20 years ago. Interior was pristine and paint body very good.

            I've read some tips about searching, so T2R9 might be able to help. Cloth seats front and rear and carpet is an administrative car? I'm also interested in these due to the upgraded suspension bushings and brake package.

            The easiest way to tell an administrative car is the lack of equipment that was installed. A patrol car will have evidence of lights, camera systems, rear cages, rear seat divider, and computer stands installed. There will be holes everywhere! Typically an administrative car will not have most of this equipment. They might have a radio and some internal lights. And as mentioned they sometimes are a higher equipped model.

            https://www.govdeals.com/ is where a lot of agencies list their used equipment.
