TWO BLACK SRT8's 2012 // 2010

i pulled into the gas station saturday to find a WK2/SRT8 pumping gas in front of me....

i needed to get gas but whens the next time im going to see a black WK2/SRT8 moving on the highway... so i decided to get gas another time and follow this jeep.

i pulled up next to him and gave him the i then pointed to the rest area drop off scenic view points onside the river and he actually pulled over. i talked to the guy for a bit and took some pics of the two black jeeps together. he was good guy who comes from the audi realm. we both were late to our destinations so i took some photos in a rush.

i must admit though, the best thing about bumping into this SRT8 was the fact we both we going in the same direction and basically were leading the thruway for at least 70 miles until i had to get off and he kept going north.

i offered to let him drive my jeep and id drive his, we exchanged contacts and i told him to check out JG!

heres some pics :

Re: TWO BLACK SRT8's 2012 // 2010

thanks guys, i wanted to snap pics of the two blacks together for a while now. it was just funny how it happened.

the owner knows the SRT8 and i can tell talking to him that he knew what he bought and i he loves it! i told him i love it too! hahha we talked about this that and the other about the new jeep. he just got it a couple days prior to the photos so hes still breaking it in. i told him its beautiful jeep a bunch of times.

i bet anyone who was a jeep or SRT fan that saw the 2010 and 2012 back to back cruising on the interstate- would be doing a WTF!?! i know thats not every day.

I don't know. Maybe the round headlights keeping the Jeep tradition. I don't know. I like them both.

But for the money, I'll take a 2010 and feed the other ~$40,000 that people spent on the WK2 under the hood.

It's amazing how different tastes people have. Those round headlights are one of the biggest reasons why I would never have bought a 2010. Go figure!

Lol. That was just a guess. I don't know. I didn't like the WK2 at first but that was only because I saw the bare bones version in person.

I'm never buying a bare bone standard car again.

Re: TWO BLACK SRT8's 2012 // 2010

im an adult and know people have their own opinions....i like both of them. some dont. i can appreciate ones opinion, thats cool u dislike it. you dont have to like it or think its better looking.

ive only owned jeeps, i drooled over/waited four yrs to get into my SRT8 in DEC of 09. i dont know if you were checking out SRT8s back in the day before there was a discussion about 2012 model... but i bought my dream jeep already.. 010'SRT8.

i love the new one and think its beautiful and might get a used one in a few yrs down the road but i didnt buy my SRT8 for this new stuff in the WK2. i love the new stuff but im perfectly happy right now.

i do however applaud anyone who buys any jeep SRT8 and knows the history of the line is even better and one who can appreciate the JEEP either way cause its a obsession.




example-- im the kind of guy who likes the straight lines on a 1990 mustang.... and hated the upgraded rounded off version of the following model yr... but some people like them both or dislike.. etc..
at the end of the day they were all MUSTANG FANS-
