So back in August, around the ninth - I sold my 2014 WK2 SRT.
Why? I was stupid, that's why. (old link here
In reality, I was previously used to lower sports cars and I sold it with plans to grab a GT-R or R8 down the road a little. I traded it in on a new Rubicon and then with the check I got back from between the two.. I upgraded the Rubi.
My wife had always wanted a "jeep jeep" so this worked out well. My wife gets her dream vehicle, I had a great time but maybe someday I get mine...
Fast forward to now... not a day has gone by without the SRT I didn't regret my decision. I purposely stayed out of the forums, so i wouldn't see others modding. I shut down my old badassjeep.com
srt blog and I just went into denial I think. Yeah, it was grand.
Last week my wife tells me that she doesn't like the modded Rubicon, and she misses the SRT.
She didn't have to tell me twice. Within 48 hours I had secured a white WK2 SRT with 6 miles on the odo.
It arrived today.
I don't take possession though until the winter tires come in for it as we're about to get blasted with snow. next week is supposed to be -12C/10F. It was ordered with the three season Pirellis.
Great for Winter I hear.
I parked Tank (the rubicon's name) next to the SRT today for size.
I've already started collecting mods.. I think when the winter is up, I'm going GT Haus exhaust. Kind of hoping someone here does it first so I can hear it on the SRT. I already have the R1 slotted/cross drilled rotors/pads, and I'm still waiting for Billet to get back to me so I can order my new catch can.
As for the GT-R and R8 - both amazing but pfffft. Why spend more? The SRT is amazing. I was stupid to let her go, but I'm happy once again.
Side bonus - I had originally wanted white but I let my wife chose black because black was my second choice and she was after all saying sure to me getting a SRT.
