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

if you think...honestly that the wk2 hemi REAR is identical to the wk2SRT REAR...you sir are blind....and its not just the middle black portion. Look at the bulging across the top of the bottom black portion. Then look how the fender flares continue into the rear bumper....

then theres the spoiler...TOTALLY different...not even close. Its an open and closed case! Its just like the 06-10 wkSRT vs. WK non-SRT rear bumper....

Of course the two Jeeps are similar, they're both new Grand Cherokees, just different trim levels. There wasn't much difference between the WK and the WK SRT8 either.

What I'm saying is that those are VERY small differences...... so small that if the SRT was on the road by itself (on the rear) that you would have a hard time telling if that is an SRT8 or a normal HEMI WK2. The 1st gen SRT WK looked totally different from the non-srt WKs. It all started with the center exhaust and ended with the ports under the rear fog lights (don't know what the true name of it is). Sorry but no sale.

yep, def looks like the new Grand Cherokees but come on now, not much difference between the WK1 and WK1 Srt8? I bet to regular folks (non Jeep owners), they will be able to tell the difference much quicker from the wk1-wk1srt8 than the wk2-wk2srt8.
x2 on what Marcus said. Yea there are differences but its like finding waldo, i had to do a few takes.

I think it's the lack of the center exit exhaust that makes the difference between WK1 and wk1 srt8 so obvious...
