Which????
 
Hey JG... I want y'all's thoughts on something. I'm going to be buying a 2014 GC. An I'm totally stuck on which I want.

Summit Diesel vs SRT.

Silly choice eh? I want the utility of the diesel. Bit when I test drive the SRT in white. And heard that 6.4 growl. Well the Only thing ive driven that was almost as sexy was a GTR. The launch control was climatic...

I suppose it comes down to... 90% o my driving will be on road. And for that remaining 10% I'm not going bouldering. However, if I had the diesel I may get a little more aggressive.

The real solution here is I need. NEED both. But, well, that's just impractical.

Thoughts? Sorry if I should have posted this in the SRT forum but I know what those folks are gonna say.

what you (and I) need..wait..."need" is a an overland or summit with an SRT engine. Personally, if I could go fast in a straight line and also go off road...booyah.

If you need to do any off-roading, don't go for the SRT. I bought an Overland instead of an SRT because I want to go off-road. However, I (and at least 1 other on JG) am thinking about buying an SRT in addition to the Overland (and maybe replacing the Overland with a Wrangler Rubicon 10A, or possibly just buying a Rubicon 10A as well). Another idea, if you need to go off-road, would be to buy an SRT and also buy a Wrangler for the times you need to go off-road. The Wranglers are cheaper than the GC's, and can be made pretty nice (leather, heated seats, navigation) for well under $40,000, or you could pay $20,000-$25,000 for a pretty basic one if that suits your needs.

Yeah. I mean. If I could get the SRT with a switch for QD2 and QL!!

Herb4372 07-28-2013 02:03 AM

Or... OR!!! If I could get the summit but it starts ups sounds like the SRT... That would do everything I need

Why not just get a Overland Hemi and have the best of both worlds.
Personally I will be getting a SRT next, as I never go offroading.

I'm sure you "need" both. :lol: I agree with ENFORCER, test drive a 5.7L HEMI too. Sure, it isn't as fast as the SRT and doesn't sound quite as good, but it is still pretty fast and sounds very good (especially with a CAI). AND, you still get to keep the off-road ability. I really wish that the 6.4L was offered in the Overland and Summit. I would buy it for sure, even if it was a $5,000 or $6,000 option.

I think this is the best choice for looks, some power, and value, and luxury too.

For what the O.P. asked, SRT for sure.
