Re: 2012 SRT8 rearend compared to 2011 WK2 rearend-lets end this now

I see the difference, its very obvious BUT the rear door is identical as are the lights. Rid the chrome piece and it'll be 10x better! Also I for one HATE the tail lights compared to the WK, but if an LED or some alternative comes I may like it. Maybe some tint? Anyway will guys be able to go with different/bigger exhaust tips? Looks like 4" may be stock and permanent without some cutting!

My point is.....there's more difference between the srt and the nonsort than there was previous gen.

Re: 2012 SRT8 rearend compared to 2011 WK2 rearend-lets end this now

The rear is just not as aggressive looking as the wk srt8 IMHO...

Maybe it is the taillights like soontobesrt said... because that's my biggest dislike on the regular wk2 as well... looks to much like the european suv's. And it doesn't seem squat enough.

I do really like the front end. major on that.

Also exhaust pipes underneath are all painted black over the plain stainless steal on the regular WK2?

What do you folks think? Will the SRT grille fit on an Overland? That's the one mod I will make as soon as parts are available!

Re: 2012 Jeep SRT8 compared to the 2011 WK2-lets end this now

Scott, look at your post #10. In your avatar, its your red WK SRT rear end and then the new one. Which do you HONESTLY like more? I cant see where anyone would say the new one!? Just cant see it, its nice, BUT no WK rear end. LOL

Maybe we all have different expectations of what a rear should be. Seems some just want a distinct differentiation, but in my mind the central exhaust, lower bumper and rear fogs made the WK SRT rear as different as the lower diffuser does on the new WK2. Just my .02

Re: 2012 Jeep SRT8 compared to the 2011 WK2-lets end this now






Lets compare apples with apples. A red SRT8 with a red HEMI WK2 (hemi for the duel exhaust). Although, I think even though the front end of the SRT look like something that a ricer would put together on their Civics, I think that the front end of the SRT and a normal WK is different. However, in the rear, its only until you put the two cars side by side that you notice very small differences between the two. The difference is so small that if you saw an SRT on the roadway by itself that you would think that there was something "different" about WK but can not put your finger on what. Kind of like when Jeep changed the front end of Grand Cherokees in 2008 or if you saw a WK1 with the mopar lower trim package (I forgot the name of it). I'm sure that if there was a picture of an SRT with the tow package, the difference would be even smaller. Sorry, no sale.

What point? The two cars look almost the same. At least with the old SRT, you would know that it was an SRT without a non SRT next to it.
