Re: how much would...

try to get the lowest miles possible and buy a warranty that covers all drivetrain componets. You might could get the 07 with 74k for 21-22K?

Re: how much would...

dont mean to change the subject but how much do you think it would cost to get a drivetrain warranty for an extra 10,000 miles. My 70,000/7 year powertrain warranty ends in jan of 2011 I believe. But I want to keep for like a year after jan of 2011.

look into them prices are all over the map. to get a chrysler one, you need to have less than 48K miles though. some aftermarket ones will allow higher, but obvioulsly they arent as good.

Scott, how do you go through for your insurance? maybe its an age thing, because I was quoted a LARGE difference in insurance costs between my limited and the SRT.

Through state farm, whom i also have my homeowners insurance through, it was shy of double of what I am paying now.

Sorry for the thread jacking, but i would be driving a different jeep had it been the same

Re: how much would...

I couldn't pay 25k for anything with 75k miles. Also, you realize it's red right?

I think some might have to do with age. Im pretty sure it drops after 25 or something like that. I know downstate has an 07 srt and his insurance in the same as my 04 wj which is like 85 a month and he is like 25 or so and im 26.

Re: how much would...

also value. ask joe elvis.

he went from a ~42K Overland to a ~47K SRT8 and said it was a minimal change.

but if he had a 05 Laredo ~23K sticker to a 2010 SRT8 ~47K, there will be a difference.

i think what these guys are saying is ther is no HI PERF tack on.

Re: how much would...

The dealer that I got my Jeep from (Thompson Jeep - Aberdeen) has an 07 listed for 27k. If you'd wanna go look at it, I'm sure I could get that price substantially down for you. Lemme know.

sounds good i'll let ya know man. I'm waiting till im 21 to get it so i can sign for the paper work myself. I'm thinkin about getting the 5.7 Hemi LX (300, Magnum, or Charger). As much as I'd love a SRT8GC, the R/T LX's are only like 60hp less then the SRT8s. Also theres a few shops in MD and DE that specialize in Mordern Mopar Muscle. But like I said I'm waiting till im 21, which just so happens to be less then a month then hopefully soon I will be rocking some sort of Mopar Hemi
