BUT...you have got to understand...its NOT all about Racing the 1/4 mile. How many wk2 SRT owners raced them in the 1/4 mile? 1-5%? 3 of the local SRT owners I know are like 60 and didnt even know what they had purchased. One lady bought it for the V6 and gas mileage.....LOL

Again, when it first debuted in 2006 it most certainly was the fastest. Now the new gen debuting it is not only not the fatest at its debut, it isn't even any faster thean the previous gen.

LOL!!!!!!

What is different in the interior based on the current Laredo? Seats? They were different in the first gen SRT. Steering wheel? Different in the first gen. Performace pages? Added to the first gen.

AND the difference in price from a Laredo in 06 was probably about 10K. Now...........about $30K LOL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Your 2006 Laredo you paid $23k for +$3K in parts? Well, I paid $41K for a fully loaded 2006 SRT )or $15K more than you POS Laredo)

Re: 2012 runs 13.81

really? You want to compare now. Leather dash, console, carbon fiber trim, heated leather SRT ONLY steering wheel, leather on door panels etc etc. And the perfromance pages was added in what??? 2009 or 2010? LOL. The 2006 SRT had the same airbag and steering wheel as a Commander. Same sway bars as a the commander. Off the shelf Bilsteins, same fogs as a laredo, same door panels, same dash, same trim. They did have much BETTER seats...Ill give ya that...LOL.

Re: 2012 runs 13.81

Whatever, Scott. I hate getting into arguments about this crap.

I see Milous lurking. Even he thinks ChryCo has bent everyone over on this one. You used to be lock step with him, but I guess even he cannot convince you of the errors of your thinking.

Having been around the community for quite some time, I know when I am being had. And I especially know it to be true when Milous agrees.

Boston - your posts are so irrelevant that I don't even know why I even bother reading them. You have already been laughed off of the red site. Give it a rest before you are figured out on this forum as well.

Re: 2012 runs 13.81

Yeah to be honest I won't race my WK2 and I'll probably get flamed on for it but whatever I buy it for whatever I chose to use it for, I think it looks much better inside and OUT than the WK1 SRT. The interior though just absoutely is like comparing a luxury mercedes to a honda civic when considering the WK1 vs 2.

You're like a little kid that chimes in after the adult's are done speaking, as for being a fool for paying that, I paid 41K for a '06 "plastic" SRT8 as well, then I sold it almost 5 year's later for 30K to another fool, good luck with that resale value on your WK2.

Re: 2012 runs 13.81

hey bro...everyone has different opinions. But calling us fools and stuff is not cool. I am hoping to get a new Jeep and not for $65k. (I dont need adaptive cruise, cross path, 2000k stereo etc) It should be in the $53-$56k range...which if you go by 2010 SRT pricing($52k+)...is a STEAL IMO.

How big a fool is someone who buys the cayenne turbo s? Or the X5M? Are they $30k and $60K better than the Jeep?
