Well with the QC delay, I figure I will have around a month to drive it before it sits in the garage for the winter. So it's perfect, break her in and then during the winter start improving her =)

Why would it sit in the garage for the winter? It's an AWD vehicle with a Snow mode on the traction control. Just put a proper set of winter tires on it and you're good to go if you live in a harsh winter area or order it with the standard 4 season tires if you don't.

exactly, this isn't a Ferrari. In fact, Jeep would probably be embarrassed.

Well we will see how the Jeep performs in the snow but it would have to be a drastic improvement over my 2010. Even with my winter wheel set up, I never felt safe driving in the winter. Just too much power to feel safe in inclement weather with my 2 year old in the car with me. All it takes is a little too much gas in a turn to lose it.

I guess this is where everyone says how good of a driver they are and it is just me blah blah blah. It's just personal preference...

It makes no difference what brand of car it is to me. In fact, considering my wife drives a 2010 Grand Cherokee and I have this as my winter vehicle

I think the last thing Jeep would be is embarrassed..

Hopefully they solved that issue for you

Snow Mode - Provides the most conservative dynamic mode, so the vehicle will safely stay in-line in winter weather conditions.
Regardless, it looks like you have the winter covered and if you can afford to park the WK2 for the winter then that's great. I don't think Jeep would be ashamed

Re: Track your newly ordered 2012 Grand Cherokee SRT8-only at JeepGarage.Org

I have my VON and will now wait for the VIN. I waited for Red so there will be some Silvers, Blacks and Grays ahead of me in the order queue. This is my second Jeep SRT8. My first one was delivered in January 2006. Milous tracked the VIN and determined that, excluding prototypes, test mules and those reserved for Chrysler big shots, it was the first sold in PA and the 12th or 13th in all of North America. A bit of a collectors item so I'm keeping it.

I also have my control number for affiliate pricing, but I don't have a strong feeling that Chrysler and the dealer will include SRTs in the program, especially since ours are 2012 model year and the current program is for 2011 model year. What do you guys think will happen?

Honestly, it's not looking good for Affiliate pricing on the 2012 SRT's. If I were you I would get something in writing that they will sell you the SRT for Invoice if Affiliate isn't honored.

The Affiliate thing will probably put me in the position of not getting one in 2012 unless my dealer feels like doing me a favor (yeah, right ) With the hit I'll take on my 2011 Overland I need to get close to Invoice to make the deal work for my accountant (wife).

Why not just make the snow mode reduce the horsepower by half to accommodate?

They will offer the affiliate pricing. My dealer said they never release the details until they go on sale. Mine will honor it either way since it isn't a huge discount any regular person couldn't negotiate.

I agree with this. Even if they offer Affiliate on it, I'm going to start by trying to negotiate for far more below invoice. I don't really care one way or the other, I'm really good at negotating and I'll get it done. Now, if Jeep would just hurry up and offer it in the color I want.

Same here, most of my cars I get at 5% below invoice. I always tell the dealers to start at invoice and work down from there. So many dealers and I don't mind traveling.
