They are absolutely amazing cars but they are terrible in any snow at all but hey with 550hp who cares.

and void your warranty. GM doesn't play anymore with Vette's, V's, and Camaro's. hence why they have the option to buy a second ECM, so you can throw that in if you need to take it to the dealer. Going back to the stock tune does not work, the new software logs and stores changes made to the program.

Well if hauling ass is your taste, not sure why anyone wants a Jeep to go fast.

Remember when Jeep meant offroading?

You are looking at $350 dollar insurance policy that can be purchased at any time, just in case. Its still a very cheap additonal 80 horsepower.

Re: Couldn't wait any longer - SRT8 replacement (photo) inside

Congrats I just sold mine with 7k miles on it. I lowered it wheels and tune. I was a bad ass ride. I needed some more room.

Personal preference.......I'm not sure why anyone would want to drive a 3.7L.....but if that's what they like, so be it!

my thoughts exactly, but I have been biting my lip every time I have read that post.

a 2006 WK with the 3.7L doesn't scream "I'm a big badass offroader" to me.
