New to the group coming from a C63. I love that car, but it's really not practical as a DD in the midwest. Especially after this last winter. I bought it in California and sold my Jeep GC when I moved back so I wouldn't have to pay for two parking spots in the city ($250/month min). I prob should have kept the Jeep, but the C63 was so much fun with a tune and full MBH exhaust setup including headers.
Here's a couple vids from the dragstrip and after I got my headers and exhaust set up.
Anyway, I've always wanted a Jeep SRT-8 and finally pulled the trigger. It may not be as fast as my C63, but it has more utility and I just loved my Jeep GC I had for 11 years.
I'm in the Chicago Burbs (Aurora/Naperville area) and would welcome any suggestions on shops out this way that can help with some mods.
Performance mods will be the usual headers, exhaust, tune, and I'm hoping to do a bunch of visual mods as well. I really like some of the build threads out there and have learnt a thing or two from those.
I hope to learn a ton more from the forums.
