Re: 2016 Jeep SRT new features....updated as we learn

Hah.. Power folding mirrors has been a topic that's almost comical.. Seriously how big of a deal is this really?? It's eaten up multiple threads and seemed to be a sticking point for some folks. The...

Re: Replacement tire comments requested.

I put on the paradas about 6 weeks ago and have found the ride to be quite pleasant compared to the run flats. Huge difference in ride quality imo.. The downside of course is a noticeable...

Re: Which SRT8 is better?

I think a good way to evaluate it is to attend the SRT track experience. That's the one place where all SRT vehicles (minus viper) and their owners are in one place.

I can tell you and I...

Re: 2017 Jeep Grand Cherokee TrackHawk w/6.2l SC???

I heard somewhere, maybe here, that there is a shortage or underproduction of the supercharger itself.. Is the hellcat problem due to supply chain shortage? The charger is the real star of the...

White SRT w/Gold wheels

Gold is questionable on a white truck imho.. Bronze works...Matte black or gunmetal with that blacked out grill is still where it's at.. It's all in the wheel design. Hellcat wheels are outstanding ...

Re: 2014/2015 - Do you have a noticeable jerk on 6-5 shifts + a clunk?

I've got a 2014 early build (4/2013) and have had absolutely no issues whatsoever. Smooth as silk. I imagine most of us are having a good experience with this 8 spd. It's a great trans really.

Re: 2014 with Borla S-Type (before and after)

Re: 2014 with Borla S-Type (before and after)

Is there any projected horsepower gain with the S-type? Or is just for the sound/appearance?
