    Alright....I have to ask.

    What's the deal with the "SUPERCHARGED" badge on the doors?

    The Trackhawk FB page is LITTERED with crooked badging or letters falling completely off.

    Really embarrassing as a Mopar fan to see that on a limited run, $100k product.

    I'm sure that won't hurt longevity, but it really looks bad. Especially for a vehicle where people would be showing off under the hood.

    Exactly. You'd expect more out of $100k vehicle, you wouldn't see that on a base 2017 Dodge Viper SRT for $95k would you?

    Looks like it was driven in the salt and then sat for a couple months

    That is Harrison zaukes trackhawk. It was transported from Michigan freezing below zero to central Florida. It was simply washed off. The paint damage.was done after it left jnap...probably during The 1600 mile trip via rail. How many times are these loaded unloaded and switched around while in transit. You could tell they were from.someone opening the doors and banging them against a hard surface.

    The corrosion in the engine bay did not come from transit.

    Secondly, when shipped, these vehicles are given protective bumpers on the doors and other parts. There is no excuse for such damage.

    This is negligence by FCA with a $100K vehicle. It is frightening to think that they will do this with Wagoneer and other high-priced vehicles.

    I don't know what you do for a living. .but I deal with aluminum corrosion every day.. and those pictures are not from salt in transit. .that' corrosion plain and simple. ..and even if it was salt how did it get there?
    Was the hood open the entire time?

    Harrison lives in Florida.

    I don't think he was arguing against it being corrosion, just postulating a reason it could have been there so early if in fact it wasn't that way when installed at JNAP. If it traveled by open truck/trailer or train from Michigan for a dealer trade or any other reason at this time of year, the northern air is loaded with salt near any road. those train cars let air flow right through and as you move from the salt and cold to the warm humid air, you get condensation and a bunch of corrosion. I've seen it happen many times. But at this point, It's all speculation...
