Thumbs up WOW....the gen1 SRT Jeep guys really hate our Jeeps huh?

I know theres always competition between different generations of vehicles....but this seems to be a little bad. Its not bad at all here...but other sites its almost comical. How do you guys handle that? The hatred and jealousy is almost mind numbing......

This is what I hear when they start to mouth off about the WK2. BlahBlahBlah I'm clueless about the WK2 BlahBlahBlah and I'm jealous of the new SRT8 BlahBlahBlah. LOL

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

I heard the same stuff when I had my CLS63, that the cadillac was faster. Or about the Viper ACR I had, the Z06 is faster. Always from someone who had not owned or driven either. Nobody has mouthed off about my CL63 yet. Personally I hate the looks of a Cadillac and owned a Corvette once(biggest piece of junk I ever owned). So far everyone loves my Jeep. To me the WK2 is leaps and bounds over the WK's. Mercedes put me in WK's a couple of time when I had cars in for service. Those things were terrible. Mercedes stole alot of technology from Chryler, and then the Private Investment group that bought them cheapened it so bad I wouldn't own one. And I grew up with Chrysler. I get what I like. Could care less about what anyone else thinks.(Except the girlfriend)

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

The good WK1 owners that are actually accomplishing stuff, like BBill and the stage 6 guys and TTC guys, are really happy for us. The ones that are running their mouths are the ones that have not been around very long to see the platform grow and just see us paying about $60k for a jeep. They probably didn't think tuning would be available this fast since it took so long last time and may be a little upset because they went with the WK1 since everyone was planning on waiting for tuning for the WK2. I have not met a bad WK1 owner yet but most that I see around town I had talked to when I had my '08

Mongoose9400 is an unknown quantity at this point
I pretty much ignore the bickering. With tuning around the corner it's only a matter of time until the WK2s will really start to shine and steal some spotlight from the WK1s. Most excuses are, it's big, it's slow, it's expensive, yada yada.... In reality stock for stock they are pretty much even, either or could win the race in stock form. Once the power adders are on the WK2 and they start turning 11 second 1/4s people will wise up. It won't take much to really speed them up. Overall, both are great machines and its difficult to compare the two.

Main thing is people defend what they own....

LOL...stage6? Look for harrisons posts here...he bashed and HATED the wk2 srt ! I guess now that money can be made from us owners he's all cool with the wk2? Ive been around both forums since the start of BOTH and its the same guys. I dont know how you guys stand it there. Wk2 owners dont post that much...its the wk1 guys posting in all the wk2 threads with their snide comments. One visit was all it took for me not to want to return there as a wk2 owner.

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

and sorry...not trying to compare jeepgarage vs. cherokeesrt8. Not trying to start a forum bash thread or forum war. The red site is by far the superior gen1 forum. I just see this hatred on youtube, twitter, facebook, linkedin etc. I get rude comments daily on my social sites from wk1 owners about the wk2 vids I have up...or pics etc.

No worries Scott I'm not really on the other social sites so I only see what's here and the red site. I'm sure the haters will come around when we start hitting the track. Especially after seeing someone on the LX site go 12.1 on drag radials and nothing else. I'll admit I didn't like the WK2 and I bashed it. When my '08 got totaled there was nothing else I wanted, go figure...

Agreed. It's worth high $50's I think, not sticker though. With where I think the 2014 will be at I cant afford that so glad I didn't wait. I will admit it grows on me everyday, still miss my WK1 but love mine more and more
