Re: So long SRT8

You're not the only one. Jeep owners are as loyal as they come and I too tried to put up with the laundry list of issues my '12 had also. I would rather be driving a Jeep than anything else, but...

Re: My 2014 Jeep SRT just broke the 4 second barrier

Thats an under statement. Were on our third year of the new platform and fan options and idle adjustment are still worthless on the 12's and 13's. They should at least post what actually works with...

Re: My 2014 Jeep SRT just broke the 4 second barrier

Yeah, that drove me crazy. The bad thing about it is a Trinity cant correct it either. No matter where you set the idle, it will still drop to 500rpm's when the AC is off.

Re: Dreaded Tire Decision! Halp!

I liked the Scorpions, but not the price of them. Since you have two new Scorps on the front, you might try and find a couple on Ebay. If not, the Paradas are the way to go for getting some...

Exactly. If you're not buying at or near invoice, you need to be dealing with another dealer.

Re: Remote Start does not remember climate settings

Wow. I thought invoice would be a little lower than that. So 66K is a great deal on the 14's I guess.

Re: LOVE LOVE LOVE my 13' Jeep SRT!

Good move Scott. Headlights an 8 speed tranny and all the issues that go along with the '14's aren't worth spending 15K for. Who knows, we may get suprised with a special edition Hellcat in '15 or '16

Re: 1st gear torque management?

Dont power brake it much. Anything over 1000rpms would cause the nanny to kick in on my '12 and the 0-60 would suffer.

Re: Anyone else getting wheel corrosion?

Those pads release more than just dust Im afraid. As sticky as they are, there has to be some hot cinders embedding in the finish on the wheel.
