It'll rock alright........rock your bank account :)

All joking aside, I am torn on what to do. I have always had a Jeep and sold my 5.9L to pay off my student loans before coming to Iraq to work. I have been following the Jeep SRT community daily for the past 5.5 years anxiously awaiting for when I would return to the States and buy one. Now, the time to return the States is right around the corner and the price hike is hard to swallow. There are plenty of options (not just performance SUV's) in the $50K range. The new WKSRT8 has most everything I wanted...except the price. At this point, I am not sure what I am going to do.

I look forward to seeing these once people get their hands on them. All I can hope is that the recent unexplained delays in production are somehow do to the entire community (dealers and consumers) upset with the pricing.

Ford and Chevy have continuously won the HP wars and the fact that their platforms are so easy to modify (with the support of the MFG) doesn't help Chrysler either. I feel that if the new SRT line either came with the rumored superchargers or had in the neighborhood of 550HP (similar to what Ford and Chevy offer) that the recent price hikes would be seen as somewhat justified and easier to accept.

I personally have made peace with the price. I have since then gotten more and more excited about this Jeep. That being said I am going nuts with all of this waiting for production to begin!!!!

I am definitely excited. I'm hoping the delay is due to the stereo being upgraded to the 8.4 inch like the other SRT8 models. :D

I don't know what to expect, but I am trusting all of the WK1 owners in stating that this new beast will be even better......:thumbsup:

I just hope I get mine soon since I already have buyers for my Cayenne S......:)

that would be awesome but i doubt it... they can keep their $12k price jack just give us something cool/unplanned in return.

I know I have seen different posts all around this forum and other websites as to when production will start and then how it hasn't started yet, but being new to the build to order car game like I am I am curious what it means. For instance I think I have seen here that people are saying they haven't started production, so what does that usually mean is holding it back? Is it that there are issues with the vehicle itself? Or is it something simple like a mechanical arm in the factory is having to be replaced?

Im hype!!!! Cant wait to see it, drive it, hear it, smell it, maybe even lick it? Uhhhh nvm, were talking about the Jeep right? Def between that and the future LE model or maybe even the Charger (need 4 doors) or a lightly used C63 AMG! Like to stay under $50k with less than 30k miles :)


Someone grab this already!

Personally I was never into MB, just not sporty enough for me........

Although my wife loves her GL450........

I can't wait for the SRT8!
