Re: Two options for purchasing SRT-Opinions needed

Anything other than obvious things I should look for? Common repairs other SRT guys have made?

Re: Two options for purchasing SRT-Opinions needed

I'm leaning towards the 06'. 23k less on the ODO isn't hurting. Plus it looks stock which is good for me since I like to experience the gains, etc. Plus the previous owner may not have beat it up...

I have a 180 stat, per tuners request. There's no "Horsepower" gain or anything, but it is necessary for tuning. Just don't forget to change your fan settings after you put the new one in.

If you're speaking of the Jeep a couple posts up, he has SRT Eibach springs, on WK Bilsteins. Also stated above is that the ride is nice.

Re: v8 or v6? Which is a better choice overall?

I'd go 4.7 if you're ruling out the HEMI. Very close in MPG, and obviously a little beefier. But there's tons of people with 3.7's and have nothing but good things to say.

Get a HEMI:p

Tough one for sure, I was back and forth on three

Gloss black and chrome both suit every color Jeep well IMO.

Re: School me on SRT8 Replicas

Worth the hassle in your opinion?

I'm going to be lowering it within the next 6 months so they'll be tucking a bit more then. But I'd rather have a taller sidewall.
