Wonder why Jeep released them as SRT's, and Milous posted them as SRTs.

The front, with the lights on, is down right ugly. The shape of the led's in the headlights is a total disconnect from the shape of the grill. The two strips of light in the bumper have no shape at all ... two dashes.

Jeep mentioned in a press release that the lights would make it distinguishable as a Jeep, even from a distance. Well yeah ... ugly always stands out.

I might be misunderstanding you?

Jeep didn't release the other pix as SRT pix. These are 2014 Summit images.

The pix I posted are from the SRT press images.

That said, from things you've posted that I've seen - you seem a litte put off by the design Jeep took with the new GC - so it begs the question, if you don't like it why did you order one? (not trying to start an e-fight or something - just a question)

Myself, opinions are all we have right?

I agree with Scott to the point I ordered an SRT as fast as they let me

Way back in college I wrote, "In my opinion ... ". When I got the paper back that was crossed out and there was a note in the border, in red "Since you wrote it and didn't credit anyone else, it was obviously your opinion".

While 'in my opinion' Jeep did a terrible design on the front lights, I don't see them when I'm driving. I actually thought about getting a Limited, but when you add the Luxury Package you wind up with the ugly lights and the plastic filler.

I really like the interior and the features in the Overland. That and the performance is what I'm spending my money on.

Actually, I totally misunderstood your post.

I thought you were saying that the pictures you posted were not an SRT.

I kept going back to your post, and my brain finally kicked in.

My apologies.
