I think Milous is right, this wont end the debate, but Johnny is spot on too, it certainly did quiet it down!

I said from the start that this was a sub13 second Jeep and that is starting to be validated.....

The don't look like they launch as violently because they don't. The WK1 still beats it of the line, but I believe the time is made up further down the track as the WK2 trap speed is higher by 2mph or so.

Re: 2012 wk2 Jeep SRT8 breaks into 12 second 1/4 mile!!!

Man, have times changed. When I was in high school back in the 80's, if you told me an SUV would be seconds faster that the shiny new Vette I would have thought you were crazy. Although, I did think we would be "flying" cars by the year 2000 back then!

Re: 2012 wk2 Jeep SRT8 breaks into 12 second 1/4 mile!!!

I wonder how restrictive the stock exhaust is. I'd like to see what happens with some aftermarket exhausts. I think I even remember the SRT engineers mentioning something about it being restrictive in the chat. Maybe an aftermarket exhaust will help increase the torque and its jump off the line.

$$$ is the only limiting factor there! Unless you are talking about stock chassis/drivetrain/motor then its another story. But the WK SRT's that are in 9s/10s are hardly stock though either, most guys are running aftermarket motors and built drivetrains and even some suspension work, so if you're talking just anything in a jeep body then theres no limit!

Brian "BJB" had a build going for the 7 second class his DBDCRMA. So yeah if you have $250k to dump into your Jeep you can get into the 6s if you want lol
