Who are you trying to convince?
Barho,
I'm glad you see that this is a far better version. I'm not trying to convince anyone of anything other than facts.
A fully loaded 2011 Overland is $49K MSRP (Jeep Build website)
A fully loaded 2009 Overland is ~$47K MSRP (WK Jeeps says a limited fully loaded is $45K) There isn't any options that would bring the Overland over $2,000 in other options above the fully loaded limited.

So $2,600 less is for a base model. Yet, when you're comparing top end, the 2009 was $2,000 or more less.

Re: 2012 runs 13.81

?he SRT only items are LOW production, high cost items. The suspension in the Jeep is different from all the other SRT vehicles as it has like 4-5 modes. It is UNIQUE to the Jeep only! The drivetrain in the SRt Jeep is also different...yes the motor is the same...but do any of the other SRT's have AWD(select trac), Rear elsd and other various parts in an awd system that are UNIQUE to the Jeep SRT? I also know the SRT Jeep hood is different from the others to save weight(ie. different aluminum and process) Then theres the SRT Jeeps brakes....6 piston fronts and 4 piston rears...again...Jeep SRT ONLY!

Thats just a few examples of 2012 jeep SRT unique high cost items to purchase and develop.

I do have a hobby, and it's called Jeeps. I'm only trying to keep things organized and the topic on point. I'm tired of hearing on every thread, about the pricing, which is irrelevant to the OP's topic.
As for the # of polls I have done, (which is maybe 6) is to see what peoples opinion is. So go post your opinion on price in there and again, not in the 1/4 mile in 13.81 thread.

Sorry, but the price increase is not warranted. Any one who thinks they are getting some great deal needs to be aware that all they are getting is a vehicle that should be priced far lower.

Re: 2012 runs 13.81

Opinions and debates are healthy and potentially helpful for individuals trying to make decisions, but only to a certain degree. The constant back and forth on every thread is wearing on the forum. The WK1 SRT8 seems to be a great vehicle that was available at a great price. The WK2 appears to be a great vehicle at a price that some are happy with and others are not. The price is what it is...

Everyone should take a deep breath and work towards getting back to a collaborative forum of Jeep (and SRT8) owners and potential owners.

I would love to see a new post (in that same spirit) from a current SRT8 owner sharing details about some of their initial mods (CAI, lights, interior tricks, etc.) that they would do again if they had a new vehicle.

Re: 2012 runs 13.81

Come on now Quick, you started the poop flinging with the "get a better job so you can afford it" nonsense. Surely you realize wealthy people can make dumb financial decisions just as often as the common man.

Your perspective is hugely valuable here given your WK1SRT8 experience. Don't take that away from the board, eh?

Jeep created a kick arse vehicle that most of us would love to own, many of us can afford, and an equal if not greater number of us have concerns over both performance and price. Jeep created this scrutiny with the second sticker, not potential or existing customers.

Re: 2012 runs 13.81

I'm guilty of it myself but agree that we need to move on about price, it is what it is and there is nothing we can do about it.

Re: 2012 runs 13.81

I know QuickOne personally and I can guarantee you he is a stand out guy.....

So can everyone cut him a break?

I for one am sick and tired of the WK2 haters here, personally I can do without your preaching of how overpriced it is.....

if you think it is overpriced or if you can't afford it, stick to your "unsurpassed" WK1, is that really hard to do?
