^ Weaksauce, and overused...

Just like Quicksilver, silver surfer, and all those other shit recomendations (haha).

Think of something out of the ordinary. Or better yet, act like you're above the age of 9 and don't name your car

meh, let it go Bubba.

Would you turn down a vehicle because someone else picked up the tab, no. So why give someone else shit for it. Hypocrisy. Joe's worked hard, his parents want to reward him, I see no reason to give him a hard time.

Re: Well I Was Always.........

Back when I bought the limited, I was so tempted to convince my wife harder for an SRT8. Damn, I know I would of had it if Jeep/Chrysler gave 0 percent financing on it.

Few things turn me off on it though.

1) I heard the ride is not as nice
2) The tires cannot be rotated and are very expensive to replace
3) I drive in NJ and with traffic for what it is, kind of kills the point of a 420hp engine. * Though, I only live about 5-10 min from Atco raceway.
4) It would of cost 6-7k more
5) Never driven one, I would probably forget the above 4 if I test driven one.

I am jealous, but happy for you. After you posted this I called my dealer, but no way I can get out of this ahead without losing both of mine

My question is, can you feel a big difference between a diablo canned tuned 5.7 and a 6.1? I really would love to test drive one someday.

I had an 07 Limited before the SRT8 and I'd say this:
1) it's a different ride more like a sports car than an SUV, definitely feel it on speed bumps if you go too fast.
2) They can not be rotated from front to back but can be from side to side. Replacement GYs are expensive yet there are a few better options that are NOT (Nittos 420Rs = $160 front, $195 rear for example)
3) I'm on LI and even with traffic, just think of those moments where there isn't bumper-to-bumper traffic or a good opening that you can punch through. Then 420HP is just what you wanted
4) yeah, you have to pay for the extras.
5) without a doubt. There's a difference in performance and the interior is WAY better IMO.

I'm sure Joe will let take you for a ride or next time I'm at ATCO, you're more than welcomed to come down and check it out. Even a quickie test drive.

Thanks for the offer, let me know when your be around. I would love to meet up with some of you srt8 guys. I really can kick myself for not going the srt8 route.
