I do miss the puddle lamp the Overland has that the SRT doesn't though.

It would also nice to have the SRT door sill light up like the summit,and have that nice red leather seat with the white stitching that they have in the Chrysler 300 and charger, and viper, available as an option to SRT owners, Heck have they seen the competition the BMW x5m and x6m with that bright red leather seat available as an option with extra cost.
HUD heads up display,is now available on the Cadillac Esclade, Lexus, Audi,BMW had it for a long time,Mercedes Benz says the reason they never implement this technology on their vehicle they thought it was a distraction,now they start to implement it on their vehicle,they say all their vehicle will have it in the future. I understand that they would have to redesign the dash behind the steering wheel on the Jeep SRT to get the data reflected on the windshield but it can be done.
This idea that they want to keep the SRT cheap in the 60 and 70 thousands $ range, there is nothing cheap about buying a vehicle in this price range,in my opinion anything south of 50 thousand would be cheap and that is up for debate,you cannot be half pregnant if you are going to make exotic vehicle to compete against European exotic like BMW x5m and x6m and Porsche Cayenne then you need to go all the way hardcore don't be pissing around all these features does not have to be standard on the SRT, because to be fare to North American automaker they are not standard on the European imports either,but Chrysler should have them available as an option the the SRT.
My greatest fear with Chrysler is that they are going to go back to the old ways of doing business which ruined the company and had to be bailed out by the American tax payers, I know they have to focus on good quality and refinement on their vehicles,but the company is making lot of profit money right now and I hope they don't get stuck in the bubble drunk on their profit and become static and wreck the company,they have some good looking and sexy vehicles out there right now that Jeep SRT is better looking than all the European Suv import right now.
They need to pay attention to what the competitors are doing and give the people the consumers what they want , If I want to pay an extra $3,000.00 for red leather seats and HUD i should be able to get it.
