So after the new redesign..... Chryco STILL can get a set of brakes right?!?! Love the "typical brake" sounds like the WK1. Sad. I would have thought the new brake system would have been cured of that old sound.

Please don't call me a WK1 hater, but come on, the WK2 looks so much better.

Re: Saw a GC SRT8 in person today

It's slooooooowly growing on me. I've always liked the front and interior but the ass end is just wrong to me. One thing I hate about the WK2 is the eye for the CC. Just looks goofy IMO. First time I've seen the black and like always...... it's my favorite color. The Silver turned me off when I saw it in Ohio...... but the black..... nice.

Re: Saw a GC SRT8 in person today

i dont see why everyone is complaining about the back....When I had my 08 I always thought the back looked just like the normal GC except for the center exhaust. Which if you ask me wasnt always that noticeable or such a big difference. At least the 12 has a black exhaust which should be kind of cool/unique... but I dont think either the wk1 or wk2 had much of a special look to them compared to the non SRT models.

Re: Saw a GC SRT8 in person today

Well if you think about it like this.. The 01-04 WJ's Headlights and tail lights for example.

WK1 still continues the WJ traditional tail lights but more angular.. but they completely revamped the headlights more into (IMO Wrangler headlights).. but for the WK2 they went back to the WJ for the headlights(slimmed them down, and made em pretty-ier ;-P) and did a whole new tail light/backside.. Let's just be happy Jeep isn't like Ford and changing the car every year into something completely different.. need I mention the real life hot wheel? *I'm assuming you guys/gals have seen the 2012 one.. it's a hot wheel car turned reality! *

Scott..... I've never said I hated the truck, I just said I wouldn't buy one. I've always liked the interior. The silver I saw in person was just ugly to me. The black looks much better. I damn sure wouldn't buy one brand new either. I've bought enough brand new vehicles and I'll never do it again. You lose way too much. Buying a new 2012 I think is going to cause people to take a total bath. I just don't see it holding a value vs. what people will be paying for it. I see people IMO losing $15K driving it off the lot. But hey... that's just my opinion.

Don't say never. I'm sure if you found the right deal for new, you would be smart about it.
I bought mine new in Nov 09. I think I could get 38k easy and I paid 41k.. not too bad for new.
