It will also be my new tow rig for the 2014 Centurion Enzo wakesurf boat I have on order!

I'm likely going to use the current wheels for the winter tire setup - I really like the same version of Jeep wheels in the black chrome, but if anyone knows of some killer summer wheels that will fit the 2014 SRT, please share! Also, what other type of options/accessories/upgrades can I do? I recall seeing someone did carbon fiber around the outside windows (replacing the chrome trim) and like that look.
What was the price of the jeep? I am actively looking.

Re: Just pulled trigger on 2014 SRT - picking up in 1 week!

Couldn't agree more Mike and good explanation of the towing ability - there is zero sway, and it has plenty of power to pull your weekend toy. I don't really know what else to say other than it has outperformed my expectations in pretty much every area I was hoping for! One thing that I noticed is that it tends to wind up the RPM's in 1st & 2nd gear off the line when you switch to Tow mode - I read on another forum that going into manual mode and using the paddle shifters can easily overcome this.

As far as cost, it had 6000 miles on it and not one flaw...I got it for a killer deal in my opinion ($62k) - I then purchased a 7 year transferable extended warranty for $650 from the dealer. I believe mine has every option including the upgraded HK sound system.

Thanks Maverik, actually upgraded earlier this Summer to a '14 Centurion Enzo! It's tough to tell in the picture but the entire front of the boat is metal flake so it compliments the Jeep metal flake nicely! Also shows the Jeep with my front windows tinted.

holy crap! How'd you get a 7 yr OEM bumper to bumper warranty for 7 YEARS for $650! I woulda believed $6500! Jeesh, my 4 year extended warranty for my AMG cost me $3500

The new Enzo arrives in 2 weeks

Here's a pic of my Supreme that I just sold, but like I said...no issues!

Getting my Borla Atak exhaust installed tomorrow, windows tinted today.
What do you think that setup weighs?

Always had an issue with previous tow vehicles and the boat/trailer would seem to steer the tow vehicle all over the road and sway issues too. Don't know if the SRT has something built into the towing selection or not but it pulls straight as an arrow and swaying issues are a thing of the past.Attachment 39709

What kind of fuel mileage did/ do you get while towing?
