New member with renewed SRT-8 Jeep joy!

I have no idea why it took me so long to find this forum. Previously I owned a 2006 Black Jeep SRT-8; at the present I am jeepless.

How did I finally get here? Sorta long story.....awhile ago my anxious wait for the WK2 announcement ended in sadness and despair - directly related to the additional weight and lack of additional performance.

I continued to follow the Jeep SRT-8 world, albeit with not much hope....read the 662 HP 2013 Shelby news and just about decided to go that route.

And then, just when I think I am out (of the Jeep world), they pull me back in!!!!! One of my google searches led me to a VERY interesting thread here.....suffice it to say that 2014 may be a very good year for me!

Re: New member with renewed SRT-8 Jeep joy!

Welcome to the Garage!

I have to disagree with the lack of additional performance in the new SRT/8. I had an '06 for almost 6 years and the new one out performs the old in most every respect except in a straight line. And in my own real world experience in a straight line it's even stock to stock.

Sorry, I should have been more specific. My research indicates it has a much nicer interior and better ride / comfort qualities. I'm more of a 0-60 guy, and for the add'l $ I had expected better than the same or similar times. I probably would have rationalized myself into getting a WK2 eventually, because I am a big Jeep SRT-8 fan........but now I am satisified to wait for the real monster in 2014!

I think 2013 is when they are finally introducing LED tails.

On 4/23/14 I graduated from "New member with renewed SRT-8 Jeep Joy" to "Member with NEW SRT!!!". 2014 with black crystal pearl coat. The Jeep is beyond belief - I am amazed at how much new technology it has. The ride, the handling, the sheer amazement of how much fun it is, coupled with the feeling of being safe (AWD, blind spot monitoring, cross traffic alerts, etc.) makes this feel like the best vehicle purchase I ever made. Adding a touch of serendipity - i.e., discovering RIPP superchargers a week later - really put the icing on the cake.
