And who owns just happens to own a WK (based on what you put under your name)

Are you just trolling?

I just don't like the rims on the current SRT and I don't like how low it sits and the lower trim seems to hang way too low. Maybe trolling a little too; it's fun.

Yea, I've grown tired of the front end of my WK Limited and I never liked the back end of it. I never see any SRTs around here in Omaha anymore so maybe it does look nice and I just forgot. My Jeep still looks nice though. Maybe ugly is the wrong word for the WK SRT wheels; I just like my chrome wheels better; the WK SRT wheels are too thin and look like sharp knives is the best way I can describe it. Just my opinion.

Just for the record... pipes are the same 4" diameter ad WK. Rubber is actually wider at 295 all the way around. WK stock rears are only 285's.

Gotta see this beast live, and in action. Even if I don't end up getting sucked into buying one, I'll still lust after it.
Wait till these are out in all colors and people fine tune the looks with tints and other aftermarket goodies!

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

^My bad, thanks QO. I've likely been drooling over your 5 inch tips, harry balz wider meat, and the aesthetcs of the center pipes (wait, that doesn't sound right). That, or the wk2 rear skirt sits flush and similar color to the new gen pipes and are a bit more wallflower.

Agree with the notion that the new rigs will get tricked out and just kill it when the Street Jeep crowd gets done. In earlier threads, I put forth my list like others including: moving the front fogs and led's down lower off the bumper, 22" Sema street wheels, body color lower skirts front and rear, extended pipes, and dechrome (Scott aka Ur5oslow has my rear chrome strip in painting now). Guess this is a sign of my inability to resist this beast sight unseen. Haven't yet considered under hood. Crap.

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

The new WK2 SRT8 looks great as an overall package for a production car.
As there is now a worldwide market for them, the mods will be soon and plenty.
I hope someone makes a great LED replacement taillight assemnbly that looks tech.
I do not know how Jeep did not think to add LED for all lighting.
This will be my first mod to replace everything with LED.

They may possibly add the LED tail lights before they hit the streets.....or at least I am hoping they do.

You hit the nail on the head right there... Same exact reason I want to ditch my "jalopy" (as I now call it) Charger SRT8 (2006). It just looks dated. There's nothing wrong with it, it is just time for something newer (some people aren't like that and that's fine!)

I totally HATE the new Chargers (2011), OMG and I need something higher off the ground what with going on lots of dirt roads around these parts. Plus 5 years is already WAY TOO LONG to own to the same vehicle (for me at least). And let's face it, what is better (for the buck) than the SRT lineups?? Right?? M5?? X5M?? PUHH-LEASE!! So sticking with the SRT family is a GREAT setup and it is only getting better each year. That is why I'm merrily waiting for my new 2012 SRT WK8!!

As for the LED taillights, I too hope they add those. I saw LEDs on the front and back of a Kia MicroSUV yesterday. Don't tell me these LED things are getting commoditized just as Jeep is finally getting some??

Too bad I'll never see the rear end of one of those heavy underpowered POS's, but I'm sure you'll be able to tell me if mine has one

Then go buy a Damn overland and put a 6.4 in it and shut up! Maybe a F-150 Raptor is more up your alley for height and performance. Street and Racing Technology! Don't make me say it again!
