so i finally got around to taking pictures of jeep SRT8, took a trip upstate to visit my folks an wish em a happy new yr and all that family stuff.
it was snowing out yesterday and when we had a break from all the snowfall i snapped a few pics. sorry fellas but my car was dirty from thruway salt etc.
i never drove an srt8 outside of a jeep dealers test drive services.......
................ here comes interstate 87! holly shit - hahah talk about quick! i mean you cant really experience a full test drive in an srt8 at the dealer as you fellas can imagine. the jeep is gone in no time, surely i know and expected this to happen but daym traveling at 80 and your at 130 like that kind of gone! LOVE IT*** but im careful, ive been traveling this route for over 20 years and know where to punch it. on the way up there a a dodge R/T was tailing me for a while and flew by me making a lot of noise...so i showed him the SRT is no comparison at all to an R/T durango..heheh same car family but not me not yesterday. hehe
i did about 400+ miles yesterday and my fuel eco was 12.6 per gallon. quite similar to my 2004 WJ overland gas mileage-actually not surprised about the comparison the 4.7 v8 ate gas like tyra banks seeking a shorter forehead....
i took it over to friends house to show him the new ride, his family is also loyal to jeep an all have jeeps. his pops came out (owns a 2009 WK limited_RED) and took one look at the car and said "slow down" hahah. he loved it.
overall im glad i finally bought this jeep after 4 years of eye balling it and look at it as if its a ferrari. i dove into picking one up in december, was about to pick up a used 2008 SRT8($35,500) when a 2010 with 500 miles dropped into my hands and never looked back. it was honestly luck that i was able to get a 2010 for the price i paid out the door ($40,000) so im grateful to own one. in my jeep hay day a jeep cherokee laredo 1988, then a 96 limited grand cherokee, then a 2004 overland and now FINALLY A SRT8 to complete the jeep revolution haha. cheers to everyone on here !
