I hear ya, but to shun the idea of an SUV having the option to tow seems a little ridiculous.

Re: WK2 Jeep SRT8 discussion thread

Well I live in the city too but lead an active lifestyle I guess
I bet my balls there's at least three times as many people (than your AWD reasoning) who WOULD have bought one if they were generally more usable. But anyway, seems I'm repeating myself here and you're stuck in your way of thinking, and so be it.

Re: WK2 Jeep SRT8 discussion thread

I would love it if they took the Overland and just threw the 6.4 in there! Keep the adjustable suspension and give it a more aggressive look.

Re: WK2 Jeep SRT8 discussion thread

sorry another question.. if i decide to purchase a 2010 it will probably have to be special ordered because i dont want a sunroof and all the ones i have seen come fully loaded ( i have to keep the price within my means and i dont like sunroofs)..production as stated in this site is may 2010 for new model.. what do you think is the latest i can order a 2010..thanks rob

Re: WK2 Jeep SRT8 discussion thread

you can no longer order the 2010....so you'd have to buy one from dealer inventory. There has been no definite yes or no on the 2012 SRT....but there will be for sure NO 2011 SRT
