Man get you an srt, you will love it wk1 are the best to me but if you love gadgets then you should go with the wk2. Trust me you will never look back. If you worried about gas then thats what your v6 is for. But if they make a hellcat jeep you can count me in. This was my old one. I can never drive anything else again unless it has srt on it.

Then thats cool. I always love sleepers, real car guys and gals know what wk1 and wk2 but might be able to fool somebody with a debagged wk2. Not to many jeep srt's on the road thats why i like them so much. Too many camaros, chargers, challengers, mustangs, corvettes on the road major turn off.
