I'm not sure what will happen with the early orders, we may have to wait and see what the build sheets show from those who did not order the forced options. This much I do know - every single retail SRT built so far has the HK system as well as the Lux Group II package.

Have any of the vehicles built for retail sale included the tow package?

Don't forget about the 26 lbs of extra fuel! That's 100 lbs shaved!

Re: 2012 runs 13.81

they are obviously both great vehicles. there are awesome things about both versions. if anybody owns either, they are lucky. i live in a town of about 65,000 and nobody has a wk1 srt8. i've only ever seen 4-5 in my life and that was on I-75 near Toledo. never up close. they are very unique cars and the price of technology goes up. there's still not another performance suv within $20,000 of the jeep. cost of production, assembly, shipping, etc. rise every year. that's like saying a 1970 mustang boss 302 cost $4000 new and the 2012 version cost $44,000

come on now, let's not get crazy. The average price of a car in 1970 was probably $2500-ish with a $4000 Boss 302. Today the average car is $35,000 probably and we are looking at a $60,000 vehicle. Big difference.
