LOL, find me a better one from the new one and Ill agree with you, otherwise it will have to do But anyone can understand what I mean when looking at that picture. The lines, lights and chrome ruin it for me. Not that I wouldn't buy it because of that, just saying it could have been done better for my taste, they cant please em all though

I bet if the chrome was Color Matched to the Paint then you'll like it. This is what it is.

Re: Something NEW!! 2012 Jeep Grand Cherokee SRT8 exhaust!

my point was the rear wksrt bumper was NOTHING but a slightly modified wk bumper. The rear hatch, tails etc etc. of the WKSRT was the exact same. Also...they had to make changes...no one but a bunch of idiots like us....even liked the wk-wksrt. I admit it...the stock wk is a ugly vehicle and the wkSRT is a just a gussied up wk....with a huge engine. Same with the wk2 SRT.....but now the public actually thinks it nice....cause it is.

X2 I hated the WK so much I held on to my WJ. I think the WK SRT8 was a nice improvement but not enough to make me buy one. I love the WK2 grands but I'm not head over heals for the new SRT8. As mentioned above is is very rounded... even more so than the standard truck.

I'm still up in the air I guess. I don't think I love it enough to drop $50k on it.

Re: Something NEW!! 2012 Jeep Grand Cherokee SRT8 exhaust!

I had a 98 ZJ that I bought new. I test drove a 99 WJ and hated it. My parents got a 2004 WJ, but even with the new sway bar I bought for them, it's not a great ride. I waited until 05 to get a WK, love the looks and the way it drives and I always got/get compliments on it.

Re: Something NEW!! 2012 Jeep Grand Cherokee SRT8 exhaust!

Some cars take time to become familiar and grow on you! When the original Ford Focus was replaced I thought it was bland but I came to see the better car it was over time. The Nissan Micra has just been replaced and after seeing a few I am warming to it. The first time I drove a WK Laredo, it did not feel so much like a Jeep to me, more car like to drive compared with a WJ. The WK2 SRT8 will do the same I would suggest, as that becomes more familiar, it's called evolution.It is the vehicle I am waiting for if it becomes available over here.

Re: Something NEW!! 2012 Jeep Grand Cherokee SRT8 exhaust!

WAIT WAIT WAIT! Who the heck though the WK SRT was ugly? I thought everyone took well to its initial release? Ahhh I dont know, I love it and still do, they captured that aggressive look and kept the Jeep SUV look, hit the nail on the head if you ask me, and the FIRST time.

Either way; all will be known in time. We'll see how this one sells, getting good reviews so far, lots of people seem to like it, I know I do. Not enough to say more than the WK but enough that Id buy it without a test drive or anything lol
