Re: Just a few questions about YOUR Jeep...

1. The price of new TPMSensors for my new wheels/tires

2. A few thousand dollars.

3. Purchased my Jeep in September 2010.

4. Because of the way I sit, and the way I have adjusted everything, I cannot see my speedometer without ducking my head down.

5. It's my first V8, so I'm really loving the 4.7L.

6. 2001 Mitsubishi Diamante

7. 2012 Dodge Challenger SRT8

8. Black.

9. Lift.

10. Ever since I was a child I have had a love for the Grand Cherokee. The opportunity presented itself, and I finally got one.

11a. I really like the looks of the SRT8's, but I have certain things I want to be able to do, and a lifted Jeep is the only way to achieve these things.

Re: Just a few questions about YOUR Jeep...

1. None

2. Too much for a vehicle I was leaving stock. 4th exhaust, second CAI, two sets of tires, set of replica wheels, Trinity, Billet Technology stuff, BlackOps stuff, etc..

3. 2yrs....since I have owned it for 2 yrs and haven't stopped changing stuff.

4. I don't hate anything about it. But a selectable T-case with a tarmac/snow/DD setting would be nice.

5. Always fun to drive with the power it has.

6. I have two F-350s that I had prior to buying the Jeep.

7. Not sure, nothing soon.

8. Not sure

9. Some custom powder coated stuff and some BlackOps carbon....have all the stuff, just need to install.

10. "Parking Lot Friendly" size compared to my 20-21' long trucks, room for 4 and 420hp stock.

11b. I like the Offroad stuff.

Re: Just a few questions about YOUR Jeep...

Just an idea... answer in the same format questions are asked.

1. What mod costs have surprised you the most?
None, all pretty much what I thought sadly haha


2. How much have you spent on your Jeep thus far, not counting vehicle cost?
Tooo much lmao, probably well over $7k-$8k or so, some being from error mistake etc so not everything is what you see, lot of stuff is gone, switched thrown out etc etc

3. How long has it taken you to get your Jeep to what it is today?
2 years or so

4. What do you hate most about your Jeep?
Interior and the fact that its beat up because I live/work in a busy city but thats less the Jeep and more of my circumstances, I still love her

5. What do you love most about your Jeep?
Everything, especially the Jeep badge (heart and soul

6. What type of vehicle, if any, did you drive before your current Jeep?
Chevy Blazer (never again!)

7. What type of vehicle, if any, are you planning to purchase next?
2012 Jeep SRT8 (already made the necessary arrangements, just waiting on the release!) And to think Iv'e held out on a WK SRT8 for 2 years+ for this, there is a god!

8. If you could paint your Jeep any color available, which color would it be?
Same color (PB8) With a much heavier flake in it so the metallic look is strong, so yeah I love the blue they choose, smart fellas


9. What is your next mod going to be?
Ohhh goshhh haha, probably some speakers or maybe some interior accents or possibly some tires, maybe even a full detail woohoo

10. Why a Jeep Grand Cherokee?
Because its the best, but really because its value cant be beat! Purchase is obviously a personal thing but I like the looks, and the capability plus the price combined, JEEP is the best there is


11a. Off Road Jeep owners - What is your honest opinion about SRT8's?
They're SICK!

11b. SRT8 Owners - What is your honest opinion about off road Jeeps?
