Snowy day upstate- 2010 SRT8
so i finally got around to taking pictures of jeep SRT8, took a trip upstate to visit my folks an wish em a happy new yr and all that family stuff.

it was snowing out yesterday and when we had a break from all the snowfall i snapped a few pics. sorry fellas but my car was dirty from thruway salt etc.

i never drove an srt8 outside of a jeep dealers test drive services.......
................ here comes interstate 87! holly shit - hahah talk about quick! i mean you cant really experience a full test drive in an srt8 at the dealer as you fellas can imagine. the jeep is gone in no time, surely i know and expected this to happen but daym traveling at 80 and your at 130 like that kind of gone! LOVE IT*** but im careful, ive been traveling this route for over 20 years and know where to punch it. on the way up there a a dodge R/T was tailing me for a while and flew by me making a lot of i showed him the SRT is no comparison at all to an R/T durango..heheh same car family but not me not yesterday. hehe

i did about 400+ miles yesterday and my fuel eco was 12.6 per gallon. quite similar to my 2004 WJ overland gas mileage-actually not surprised about the comparison the 4.7 v8 ate gas like tyra banks seeking a shorter forehead....

i took it over to friends house to show him the new ride, his family is also loyal to jeep an all have jeeps. his pops came out (owns a 2009 WK limited_RED) and took one look at the car and said "slow down" hahah. he loved it.

overall im glad i finally bought this jeep after 4 years of eye balling it and look at it as if its a ferrari. i dove into picking one up in december, was about to pick up a used 2008 SRT8($35,500) when a 2010 with 500 miles dropped into my hands and never looked back. it was honestly luck that i was able to get a 2010 for the price i paid out the door ($40,000) so im grateful to own one. in my jeep hay day a jeep cherokee laredo 1988, then a 96 limited grand cherokee, then a 2004 overland and now FINALLY A SRT8 to complete the jeep revolution haha. cheers to everyone on here !

i had stuff in my back seat and cargo area so i didnt snap those yet.

heres one interior shot though.

elvis- you dont know how many incidents i have with license plate crap with the state of new york. its gonna have to stay there unless they change the law. it does look much better with out though

dreamer- yeah thats me. when i converted tot he srt8 i asked if i can change overland to srt8. you remember how bad i alsmot bought it back in feb- but didnt. i picked one up last recently. thanks

quickone- thanks bro, its an awesome ride.

about highway mileage- to be honest the highway mpg rating on the srt8 is achievable if you drive ever so lightly on the pedal....

but whos gonna do that while driving an srt8? hahah
