Re: how does the SRT do in the snow?

Thats odd, the 3 Jeep dealers near me dont have any srt8's. I have yet to even see one on a lot. They do have the Challengers though in the show rooms. Actually when I went to the one near me asking if stock srt springs would fit a WK they kid in the service dept looked like he had no clue what the srt8 was, asking me why id want to lower my car.

the difference is close to 10 g's.

one main reason i want the 2010 is the 5 yr bumper to bumper.

cant hurt. with the o8 i only get the basic 3yr/36,000 song and dance.

i cant wait to bring it on i87!! hahah

Re: how does the SRT do in the snow?

10K though, do you see an 08 having issues where you would spend 10K to fix it later down the road? 10K is ALOT of mods. hehe

Timmy,
Where in Mass are you? There are only a couple dealers in our area that orders them for stock. Central Jeep in Dedham and I believe one in Natick.
IMO Central stinks. Cocky bastards...Everyone of em.

Back to topic...
I'm a little nervous about the snow trial. Alot of power, tires wider than snowboards and did I mention alot of power? LOL....
Plus.....it's too clean to just go out and play in the deep stuff. It'll be torture enough going to work tomorrow with all the salt and crap on the roads

Exactly! We have no paint (just a clearcoat), therefore Silver is the fastest.

Atilla,
Just so you know...The 5 year warranty is powertrain only, not bumper to bumper.

Hey Peter J,
Isn't your Jeep looking awfully dirty with that salt on there.
Salt blends in on ours.
In fact here is a photo of mine after romping through the snow and salty roads...It looks as clean as it did when I picked it up!




The snow already melted up here too! LOL!!! (Global Warming)
