Nice video.....I guess maybe it doesn't look sporty?

Well, at least someone here has a sense of humor.......

Re: Admit it...This truck will Rock...period

I'm all excited about it for those getting one. I think it will be outstanding in all areas of performance and will be worth every penny.

Looking forward to personal report once they arrive.

Re: Admit it...This truck will Rock...period

All we know is that it has been postponed indefinitely. I wish I knew the reason because it's driving me crazy waiting for my status to change on my build order.

I know some of you have had SRT8 Jeeps before and I had one previously. But it had transfer case issues, so bad in fact that I had to get it replaced. It was a used one so I think it was more of a previous owner issue. That being said when I get this new one is there anything I need to be aware of or anything I can do to make sure the transfer case doesn't go out?

Re: Admit it...This truck will Rock...period

I don't know... 60k for a ride that does mid 13s is not that impressive. If you are looking for performance there are way better options out there. My evo with mild mods runs low 12s at about half the price and I get over 20 mpg. Just remember your 60k "performance suv" is going to lose to a lot of 30k evos, camaros and mustangs at the track.

Yea... Your missing the point. It's an suv not a sports car. I'm also pretty sure that it will give my camaro ss a run for it's money. The jeep will also be a much nicer, luxurious car compared to an evo that's border line ricer (no offense)

No offense taken. I still would love to own an srt-8, I think what i was trying to say is that the bar for a fast car raises with time and it would be nice if the new version was at least faster than the 6 year old version it is replacing. I understand it is much nicer inside and all that, but still I'm just saying... They nailed the interior but for the price it should be faster. Sorry to post a negative comment in this thread, I realized after the first post it wasn't for that so I will not post anymore.

im just messin though, i know what you mean, they look tame, beyond that id say its another story though, those GLs are nice SUVs for sure
BMW & Porsche drivers - they enjoy drivers cars
Lexus drivers - they enjoy well built cars
Jeep drivers - they enjoy the fun of a car
MB drivers - enjoy showing everyone how much they can blow on a car

Boy am I going to get flamed for this.

hey bro...your comments are more than welcome and we are only having a debate. Please take no offense to my comments. But...did you guys not see the motortrend testing? Everyone seems to be skipping that thread with much better 1/4 mile and 0-60 times.
also...everyone seems to think the 2006-2010 tested at a sub-13 second 1/4 miler...when in fact that NEVER happened. All the times I see for the 2006-2010 were in the 13.4-14.0 range. So how is this jeep so much slower than gen 1?
