Yes it will fit. Nothing changed in the rear from 06-10 except in 06 the valence was black and then in 07-10 it was color matched to the body.

I think this needs to be moved to the WK forum.

Do you use the Hitch? If so cut a hole.

Re: 08 srt8 rear bumper questons

Yes, it will fit the 05.
You will need to remove your old hitch.
You will have to go without a hitch or get the SRT hitch.
What do you tow?

Re: 08 srt8 rear bumper questons

I am like you, CPT, I hate to give mine up too. Funny...I just today dragged the stock hitch out and will be starting to address this issue. I want the hitch back on, but I still want the higher rating of the standard WK....or at least close. I understand the SRT one is rated at about half of the standard WK. My initial thoughts are to extend and beef up the stock hitch mount. I'll have to look a little closer to see if this will work though. Absolute worst case is no hitch and SRT exhaust (who ever heard of a Jeep without a hitch though?), and next best thing is a stock SRT one. Anyone actually do one of these yet?

i've seen it done, i just like how mine is stock and has a high tow capacity.
i wonder if i can get it lowered or something.

Re: 08 srt8 rear bumper questons

They both mount in the same area. The only difference is that the standard wk one is up tight against the rear impact bar whereas the SRT one is spaced lower and has a smaller draw bar.

The problem I see is flex and leverage. If you were to get one custom made you might be able to keep the tow rating. But it may also cause the rear impact bar to bend as it will be producing more torque/leverage on that area.

I'd talk to a hitch expert and find out what can be done if you want the SRT bumper and the standard tow rating.

Good point. It will have to be something well planned.
