Newb from WA
New member here from Washington State. I'm not actually a Jeep owner (yet), but have always been intrigued with them - especially the WK1 SRT8's. I currently own a 2008 Trailblazer SS that I picked up a couple of years ago. It's mostly stock right now and serves as a year-round daily driver/dog hauler, but one that's also fun to drive. At the time I was looking at both the SRT8's and the TBSS's, but the deal we found on the Trailblazer was just too good to pass up.
I actually really like the TBSS and have some decent experience with the LSx motors, and, so, I was planning on keeping it and doing some upgrades like an RPM transmission and TVS1900. However, out of sheer luck we ended up with a WK2 rental car a few weeks ago and I really, really liked it (I'd never had a chance to drive one). Over the last couple of years I'd been monitoring the car rags and such for updates on what the WK2 SRT8's were going to be like and have been mostly impressed with what I've seen. After driving a base model GC I was seriously interested, though. It's about that time that I found this forum and ran across the thread with rumors about a 2014 SRT8 model with a supercharger and the new 8-spd trans. I sure hope the rumors are true because there'll be one with my name on it!
Anyway, glad to be here and looking forward to learning a lot.
Thanks for a great resource.
