I agree Scott. The WK2 SRT8 is definitely worth a price increase from the Wk1 SRT8. I drove one at the SRT Track Experience. I hope the 2014 updates can make the WK2 price "validated". I still think it is a 15-20% better not 30% better vehicle (compared to the 2009 I had). Now the 300 SRT8 is the best value in the line up, where before it was the most overpriced. If the 300 was an AWD that I could drive year round in the snow I would have one. Waiting patiently for the Detroit auto show to see the updates.

Re: WOW....the gen1 SRT Jeep guys really hate our Jeeps huh?

really the updates to the exterior are minor IMHO. You will see headlight washers and sensors on the front bumper, new tails on the rear and new wheels it seems. the interior will get a makeover in the center dash for the 8.4 and a new tranny of course.

Re: WOW....the gen1 SRT Jeep guys really hate our Jeeps huh?

I still hate these new rims and like the wk1's better. If they had more of an off set I think I would like them better they seem to far under the fenders to me, it drives me nuts. nothing that cant be fixed but that really is my only gripe

how come you didnt get the wk2 reps in 22"? On your wk1 reps is there more of an offset to move the rim out about an 1"?

no one makes wk2 wheels in 22". yes...they seem to be more even with the fenders....more aggressive. I did 22x10's all around with a 305-35-22 tire.

How's the ride with the 22s Scott? Did you drop it also? Or is that stock height?

Re: WOW....the gen1 SRT Jeep guys really hate our Jeeps huh?

the ride is just a tad worse....only because of the lower profile design of the tires. It will be lowered tomorrow....we are working on it now and should be done tomorrow.

You think that will fix the ride quality?
