The Summit is more luxury oriented then the SRT. That could be Jeeps logic.

The U.S. Overland also has power flooding mirrors.

Re: After 3000 miles on her here's my likes and dislikes

Just got back from a 2500 mile trip to Hilton Head island with my CRD. Fantastic Best vehicle Ive ever had especially for towing! Averaged about 19 - 20 MPG towing my 4200 pound AIRSTREAM, into a head wind most of the time,up and down through the mountains of Tennesee and Kentucky, and oversized tires. speeds ranging from 65 to 80 MPH. Plenty of power up the hills, no problem passing. Very comfortable to drive. Used about a quart of oil though, but I hear that is normal on a brand new engine, I only had 200 miles on it before the trip. Got lots of funny looks as I pulled into the Diesel pump at the fuel stops. Love, Love, Love this thing. Oh and it looks good too!
Cant wait to try the Banks Engineering oversized exhaust on it!

Re: After 3000 miles on her here's my likes and dislikes

Banks is a waste of money for such a POS quality product. I had a Banks on my '10 Duramax 2500HD. Junk quality and even worse customer service. It fell apart more than once, and friends of mine with the same vehicles equipped with the Banks exhaust all had the same QC issues. You won't gain any performance with an exhaust, although Banks will tell you differently.

By the way, I think you may be posting in the wrong forum. This is the SRT WK2 section, where 20 MPG while towing an Airstream would be achieved ONLY if you were heading down a 90% grade with gale-force winds behind you - being pushed by a locomotive!

Im surprised to here that about the Banks stuff. Ive used it in the past on my Duramax although not the exhaust, and have had no problems with the quality or Customer service.

Im not looking for any power gains with the exhaust only some noise!

Re: After 3000 miles on her here's my likes and dislikes

Why...am I wrong?

I'm about to do a 300 mile highway only trip tomorrow. I'm going to fill right at the start and measure exactly what I get non-stop. I'm betting not more than ~ 15 MPG on cruise @76 MPH. I get 13.5 combined, with 85% highway now.

Anyway - like most of us here, I could give a rats ass about mileage...because it's just too damn much fun to drive - especially with the 2.9L Whipple now. Ear to Ear shit-faced grins would be a gross understatement! Somehow, while I'm now used to the power, I never tire of driving this thing.
