Special Edition Jeep SRT8?
 
This photo was taken by Ralph Gilles at an event today. He was also driving a drag pack Chally, so I'm curious to see or hear about this one:

if i may say this is not a special jeep srt8, since it may have a special white color
but the problem is notice the wheel set's they r from the wk1

and the black out seems to be easily done by anyone :)

so it looks like an individual work to me.

It was some event that Ralph was driving in. He commented once that he was driving SRT Chief Engineer's Jeep SRT8, shown here:

Stance looks lowered. Not positive though.

Then he retweeted that white one was his other "office" for today. Notice the tow hook in the front as well.

As for the wheels and other mods, I'm sure this could have been done by anyone, but the fact that it was Ralph and he posted another photo of the challenger, makes me think he wasn't out driving peoples personally modified rides.

I def. think its an SRT vehicle....not sure if its the special edition though. I dont see them putting the previous gen wheels on a special edition. BUT...it could be a special edition with gen 1 wheels so as not to ruin the SE's reveal.

oh...and I think the black SRT is definetaly lowered on the Mopar springs coming soon!

This is what I was thinking. Milous said new rim options are coming and I'm sure they didn't want to put them out on this testing day.
I also can't fully tell that those are the Gen1 wheels. I could also care less about the wheels, but what is under the hood!

the SE for 2013 will just be the 6.4 unfortunately....no engine mods

Who said it's the 2013 SE? LOL..
I'd assume they test that S/C version for more than a year, which puts it right into the summer of 2013 ordering banks opening for 2014 model, right? Just being a conspiracy theorist and hopeful wisher!

That's lowered for sure. They are definitely the mopar springs and they look awesome.
