Re: getting the jeep back next week need tires

Are you doing custom wheels or not?

I'm running +45 offset front and +38 rear. In retrospect I would have done +40 in the rear.

Re: Lone Star Moparfest This weekend

I really want to go but I just got back from Vegas and I'm headed to Asia for 14 days on Wednesday. A lot of things to do before the trip.

Re: Jeep SRT To Change Its Name?

Holy Shit even a gay person would call what FIATsler is doing "gay".

No to "Hellcat". We aren't little kids. And it sounds gay.
No to "Trackhawk". Too many reasons to list.

Holy shit Jeep....

Re: Is it worth upgrading from the '14 to '15 ?

Re: What did you do to your WK2 SRT today?

Yes a good difference. Definitely a good upgrade IMO. I'm not looking for something crazy in suspension. I just want to be where I feel stock should have been. Now I do

Re: Holy Schitt - RR SVR Ring in 8:14

Re: New 2015 Challenger Hellcat

Hellcat is meant to compete with the ZL1, not the Z28. Two different animals. Hellcat is a straight line machine.

Re: 14 vs 12/13 headlights/ front end

Agreed, to sum it up and not so nice words, the 12-13 SRT looks like a $45k vehicle. The 14 looks like an $80k vehicle. A lot of non Jeep owning enthusiasts will verify this.

To the OP, funny...

Re: Color for FR22's on Black '14

Re: center cap color on black chrome

They're chrome as are the lug nuts, and I prefer them that way. It provides contrast that helps flow with the chrome on the grille and window trim.

I'm sitting here hoping you were sleep deprived when you posted this :D

For the love of God do not put side steps on the SRT. Sell it, and buy an Overland Summit.
