Demon Crate Tools Outlined

By -

Here is a closer look at the Snap-On tools included in the Demon Crate.

A few weeks back, the teaser information on the 2018 Dodge Challenger SRT Demon focused on the unique “Demon crate”, which includes some skinny front wheels, a handful of tools and some unspecified “Direct Connection Performance Parts” which might or might not be limited to those skinny front wheels. Today, Dodge offered up more detailed information on the tools included in the Demon Crate, all of which come from the folks at Snap-On.

The 2018 Dodge Challenger SRT Demon is seemingly designed to dominate the drag strip while being friendly enough for daily driving use. To help make the Demon more track-capable, the new muscle car will come with a large crate which will come with skinny front wheels and tools to swap to the front skinnies. Anyone who has changed tires at the track should appreciate these tools, as this is literally everything that a Challenger SRT Demon needs to swap their wheels/tires at the track.

As you can see in the image above, the Demon Crate is beautifully painted in black and red with the Demon head logo and Demon font logo. In that crate, you get the skinny front wheels, you the folks at Snap-On have designed a set of tools just for the Demon – finished in black and red and sporting the Demon logos. This includes a lightweight hydraulic floor jack, a cordless electric impact gun, a torque wrench, a digital tire pressure gauge, a fender cover and a tool bag to hold all of the Demon-branded Snap-On tools.

I’m not sure why Demon owners will need a fender cover to change the front wheels, but in any case, the tools in the Demon Crate will allow the owners to jack up the car, remove the wheels, mount the skinny wheels, tighten the lugnuts to the require torque setting and check the air pressure in all four tires before hitting the track.

In addition to these tools, today’s announcement explains that the Demon Crate will contain “a dozen more parts, including Direct Connection Performance Parts, matching Demon-head logo’d wheels and the Demon Track Pack System”. We know about the wheels, but it is unclear what the Demon Track Pack System or the Direct Connection Performance Parts might be.

All of the details on the 2018 Dodge Challenger SRT Demon will be announced when the new Mopar muscle car meets the world on April 11th in New York City, but before then, we can expect new teaser videos and accompanying information each Thursday between then and now.
