Re: Deep Cherry red or Mineral Grey Jeep SRT8?

I can see how they don't want to send out a bunch of colors on a limited production run vehicle like the Jeep SRT8 to dealers. What I don't understand is why can't an individual just order ANY color they want? Or at least any color they have on hand at Jefferson North Assembly.

Re: Deep Cherry red or Mineral Grey Jeep SRT8?

I agree jgc4ever - perhaps they are trying to limit the colors to more easily make a limited production vehicle yet still make everyone happy with at least one of the colors. When the shortage comes at the end of this year, you don't want to end up at a dealer and being forced to buy a Purple one, now do you? (Admittedly, I would buy any color I could, I will make it look better with some mods anyways...) At least this Rig looks hot, regardless of color!

Re: Deep Cherry red or Mineral Grey Jeep SRT8?

Agreed with SRTDogg, the truck looks hot regardless of what colour choice.
It won't matter at all because everyone will know you have the SRT because of those new rims. They are so different from any other Jeep rims.
Anyway, I'm just wondering why everyone on this site seems very much into just the silver and grey colour choices. All I ever see on the road are black and red ones.

Re: Deep Cherry red or Mineral Grey Jeep SRT8?

I'm ONLY getting Black because it will blend in better. I live in too small of a town to have a Red or even Gray SRT, and I have a Silver Charger SRT8 right now, so no more Silver cars for me for a while!

Totally agree! It's hard enough trying to blend in as it is with the sweet exhaust note, in red I would probably just pull over as soon as a cop even looked at me LoL

Misconceptions. I've been pulled over two times for things that I really did not do. One was for speeding, he said that I was doing 55 in a 45 when I had already set my cruse control at 45. The other time was when I had my exhaust system and as I was turning on to a side street, the cop said that I was speeding because my exhaust was loud.

You too... Cop said to me he could tell "as soon as I turned the corner I tried to get away from him", all because he heard my exhaust which translated to me trying to get away from him I guess. When in reality I wasn't even a quarter mile away from him when he turned on the lights. Of course no ticket was issued, just that to him I was suspicious. LoL

Re: Deep Cherry red or Mineral Grey Jeep SRT8?

OK so I'm glad you guys are seeing a pattern here. Sometimes you just get pulled over because it's too border-line. If you made it more obvious you're not speeding or more obvious your exhaust isn't loud, then perhaps the cops would have looked the other way and kept going... Just sayin... I've had my Charger for 5 years and not once gotten pulled over. AND BELIEVE ME, my car should be impounded now several times over for breaking the 100MPH laws and other potentially illegal manuevers. I'm no saint either, but I realize when you have to button it up just a bit more and try to blend in better...

My buddy who's a Sheriff (hey don't hate me, I have my own hidden agenda with his friendship too!) tells me that he will pull this guy over or that guy over, just for seeing dark tint or an air freshener ("because they must be up to no good"). Some might call this profiling, but whatever it is, cops do it, and there's nothing you can do about it except blend in better and pray for the best...

Does this mean you're not going to tint your front windows? That is one mod I would be considering.
