Hahaha!!! And now 55,000 seems like an AWESOME price!!! I thought 52,000 when Milous originally stated it was a fair price. After all the thing grew to where it was actually seriously functional. I'm 6'5" and don't fit in my back seat. When I heard they were going to begin production on gen 2 I drove a wk2 overland to get a feel for it, loved it! Love the size!!! So yeah, even 55,000 was bearable, say mid cycle refresh. But somewhere along the way of these price hikes it crossed MY line of what's acceptable. It's my own perception and I certainly do not fault or blame anyone who feels it is a good deal. Especially when you price protected guys are getting it for a fair price like you are. Too bad it doesn't tow a bit more weight, I could then use my SRT to tow my SRT to the track. That would be great!

Someone I beg you.... take that thing to the track (the straight one) ice down the manifold (lay a bag of ice on a towel) and get it cool or even better, cold to the touch and make one (just one) pass down it. I think you will have a 12.95-12.99 pass and prove the magazines and haters wrong!!!

Somebody please!!! Lol.....

To me $55K is reasonable compared to the $118K of the Cayenne TT I was eyeballing.....

As far as the straight track, I don't think I have the talent nor the interest......

That's why I didn't ask you. Lol! We are getting a road course near Seattle, it's called The Ridge. The Ridge Motorsports Complex to be precise, it will have a drag strip as well. You can google it and go for a virtual drive on the road coarse which to me looks like a great course. The owners say if it will pass inspection you can run your vehicle there.

I'm waiting in high anticipation to get to run it. Impatiently waiting....

I can assure you, I will be retarded for it! Anything involving cars and driving. Except car shows, that shat just seems BORING!!

I think when I'm 80 and can't hardly drive I'll take the Jeeps to the car shows and let people say "they sure don't build them like they used to", that would be cool...

So instead of waiting for the tuners to crack the codes, all I gotta do is the ice bag mod to cut 3/4's of a tick? Nice, ice.

Regarding your statement of "if someone played their cards right...", not everyone could afford to place an order without first knowing the price...

But then again, what is there to lose? The dealer I'm working with only wanted $1,000 refundable deposit. The day the additional unexpected pricing increase came out, he called me seeing if I wanted to cancel.

Well in that case now those people have to pay even more if they want it......
Sometimes you got to take chances in life in order to reap the rewards.....especially with a refundable deposit.....

Re: BIG announcement coming Monday! ie. 2012 WK2 Jeep SRT8

DAMNIT!! I won't be able to partake in the chat. Will there be a transcript of some kind, or will Scott/anyone else make a thread summarizing answers to the key points???

I'm stuck in the Miami Airport until 2:50pm now due to US Airways screwing up my American Airlines return flight for this morning when they changed my flight out Monday because of Irene.
