Taken me a while to introduce myself!

Hey everyone! So, for some reason I could have sworn that I introduced myself here but it turns out that was only on cherokeesrt8.com. My apologies!

Here is my story. I had a 2006 Mustang GT that was my "baby", but my wife and I had a child a in August of 2011 and even though I loved the car, the stang wasnt gonna cut it anymore. Pushing the driver seat forward and crawling into the backseat to put the munchkin in the carseat was starting to get pretty old. If it rained, it was even worse. Plus, if there was even a smidge of snow, the car was virtually worthless, which made me nervous for the times that I had the little guy.

I needed something with more space, AWD...and wanted something that still gave me the fun of the mustang. I've always loved the Cherokee SRT8s but all the ones I found in the vicinity were either out of price range, out of my desired mileage or had accident history. In what seemed like a miracle,in the middle of this past February I picked up a 2007 Cherokee SRT8 with 41,100 on the clock for what I think was a steal, and the best part was that it was only 10 miles from my house!

I have done some mods to the jeep. AFE Cold Air Intake, BT Catch Can, Predator & a Johan Tune, 5" TR tips with removed resos, Rear fog hookup, 6000k HID lows and fogs, front grill badge, '12 300 SRT rear badge, tinted windows, tinted tails, stubby ant and some black vinyl'd pieces.

So, long story short, I've enjoyed being a part of the SRT family for a little over 7 months now and I couldnt be happier! I look forward to the wealth of knowledge and friendly faces that the board has to offer.

-Brian

Re: Taken me a while to introduce myself!

Usually we get there early enough that there are plenty of spaces. Hopefully thats the case tomorrow.

Im also hoping that with the weather cooling off there will be a solid turn out. The past 2 I went to had a decent amount of cars but not a lot like usual. Im thinking that the 90 degrees, 100% humidity had something to do with it.

Re: Taken me a while to introduce myself!

yeah for sure. Nothing was like that first one tho. That was nuts. It'll probably be like that when it re-opens next year.
