Re: SRT8 WK2 coming in summer 2011

For all the CF complainers, if its such a problem then dont buy the Jeep! I mean really? It seems like there are always some people who love to just pick out all the little flaws and bitch about them . . .

I can see the question being asked on if its interchangeable or not but once its answered you don't have to complain and keep trolling the thread jeez. Its real CF, dont like it, sucks, figure out a way to make it work for you or hush, thanks

this.

Also, my favorite reply (and one you often see with wheels) was the one where a poster made a comment about asking the dealer to swap it with the wood on an Overland. Why do people think a dealer can just "swap" out parts that are on another brand new vehicle?????? Do these people have any idea of what a cluster#%@& this causes for the dealer who then has a vehicle sitting on their floor plan that doesn't have equipment to match its invoice??

I hear what you are saying.
Do people really think the dealer can (or would be willing to) 'swap' trim parts from anther vehicle on the lot? because they wouldn't. Maybe people mean they would get new trim ordered in from the parts department then just have the old trim that came with the vehicle thrown in the back or something.

Getting back to the thread I can't wait to see actual pictures of the new SRT8, I think we should start seeing them early April right? ( a week or two before the auto show)

I think the press shots usually leak the week before if they leak at all.

I don't' know.....NOBODY* in the gen pop had any pics of the Camaro ZL1 last month. In fact, no one even knew the name was ZL1 instead of the long awaited Z28 moniker. I was very surprised at how well this was kept under wraps.

*of course some insiders equivalent to Milous here, knew, but were sworn to secrecy.

Very true. It depends on how tight they keep it. Either way, less than one month left.

Re: SRT8 WK2 coming in summer 2011

I think it's gonna a good looking SUV, but I don't think it's gonna be the beast that the WK SRT8 looks like. I'm just not happy that they gave into all the towing mumbo jumbo and no performance center tips. I also can't stand that it's only rated at 470hp, really? It's supposed to do low 12's? OK, my cam only 6.1 did low 12's. When they came out with this in 06 it was the best thing out there and this time their behind the 8 ball, but I'm sure the leather will be nice! Whatever!
