Re: Is the SRT Tour still on in Braintree, MA today?

It was raining out so the brakes were a little wet and I think that is why you heard a squeak.

My impressions of it are this:

It is very quite. There is zero noise from the exhaust. I think my stock 5.7 was louder. I found this very disappointing.

Design wise it is sleek but I don't like the fact that the got rid of the duel pipes out of the middle of the bumper. The interior is designed more like a Benz and is very comfortable. IMO its by far the best jeep interior to date.

It does not seem as fast off the line as previous models but I have only driven an 08 twice, so I will let someone who has more experience behind the wheel talk about that.

I think the thing that stood out the most to me was the brakes. I absolutely loved them. They were the best brakes I have tested.

Overall I liked it allot and left wanting one but whether or not I would pay $61K is a whole other discussion.
