Re: drop springs...... Pics???

I know this is asking a lot, but I wonder if anyone has taken pics of this drop (either both front and rear, or just rear) on a NEW 2012 or 2013 SRT8?

Re: InsideLine - 2012 Jeep Grand Cherokee SRT8 Track Test published Nov 14, 2012

This tire would work, correct? And its not a run flat as far as I can see from the spec?

Re: thinking about a ported TB....

Hmmmm, My research led me to the 85mm due to the fact that additional tuning was recommended (beyond CAI and exhaust) if I wanted to move up to the 87mm.

85mm TB Installed!

Just installed the 85 mm throttle Body. In conjunction with the Hennessy CAI and Borla exhaust there is a noticeable improvement in throttle response and punch.

Happy with the modification!
