If I were buying a WK2 I would skip those options as well, although I would go for the HK system. However, those are all FORCED options so you cannot get a WK2 SRT8 without them.

I agree...now. But there are orders for base SRT's out there(made before the forced options)...which is what i want. Thats what i wanted from my dealer who couldnt get allocation.

How big a fool is someone who buys the cayenne turbo s? Or the X5M? Are they $30k and $60K better than the Jeep?
I agree. Those spending that kind of cash for a vehicle are a bit foolish. The foolish thing about the Jeep, is the difference in price when looking at the other trim levels. I don't care what added things were put into the SRT, the new WK2 overall had most of the same new additions and therefore the cost is not justified.

Shoot, I actually thought I was a bit foolish when I purchased the SRT in 06, but realizing I could get it for LESS than the Overland, I quickly realized I was not.

Milous, Do you know whether the "Price protected" orders have forced options? I've been wondering since the "price protection" memo didn't speak to it specfically.

Overall agree with you Scott, which is why I spend the majority of my Jeep forum time here and not at that site (you have a great forum here).

Re: 2012 runs 13.81

but if you look at the overlands for $50K plus and you can get an SRT with a cool suspension, badass 6.4, srt only interior, srt wheels etc.....its not worth $5-10K more? You are also paying for the new SRT brand...just like you do with SVT, M, AMG, etc etc. Are Nike shows worth $150? No...your paying for the name. Same here with these halo vehicles.....

Re: 2012 runs 13.81

Btw - the wk1 srt beat the ML63 from zero up to 60 at which point the ML63 only just started to real it in. Their is a youtube video of it. I'd post it but I am on my crackberry. This makes me wonder....with the added weight and the gearing changes compared to the previous gen, will the WK2 SRT be slower 0-10, 0-20, 0-30, etc up to 60 like the ML63 was? Both had similar 0-60 numbers but the SRT was a beast right off the line. It really pushed you back into the seat. My guess is stop light to stop light the previous gen will have the edge.
