I was told "it's the only SRT8 that comes with a full size spare".

Was this from inside or outside the Jeep?
I noticed a much quieter ride in the WK2 vs the WK. (NON-SRT8 WK2)
I get to find out a week from Wednesday at the Jeep Garage sponsored event in MA.
Can't wait. Hopefully, they'll take me for a spirited run, since I heard you can't drive them on public streets. We'll have a small course set up, but no justice to the handling or ability of the cars.

Drove the WK2 SRT last night..... WOW......

I don't know what a WK1 feels like, but the WK2 is just awesome......

Tight overall feel, nice contoured seat, good acceleration and unbelievable brakes

I can't wait to get mine.....

Great Vehicle. A good chunk of change, but you get alot for your money. The new head unit with updated tranny will complete the package for me.

I'm impressed.
