She talked to her regional rep and said that he said this isn't over and that is not what we should tell our customers. So I continue to wait, but, with my Jeep back in my hands, I missed it :)

Re: The 2012 Grand Cherokee SRT8: New and improved

My experience with wide tires in front is they can be dangerous in heavy rain conditions (act as pontoons) and follow the imperfections of the road more than narrower tires.
