Re: 2014 jgc srt

While I have no doubt there may be some improvement, to say it's "night and day", I find that hard to believe. It's not like the 12/13 is a yugo.

Re: 2012 with Tow package and Compact spare tire?

I just looked at my spare. I don't feel like removing it from the bay, but there are no markings for the size on there. All kinds of warnings about temporary use, etc, and inflation maximums. But...

Re: Rear DVD Video going off and on

OK....new headliner and wire harness installed. This HAS to work because they replaced every single gosh-darned piece possible. Only took me 6 trips to the dealer. My kids will tell me if its...

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee SRT8 - Features & Changes

I agree, Schleprock. Love the new 8 speed and Uconnect screens and some other new techy stuff. But looks-wise, I like my 2012 better in almost every way. Don't like the new steering wheel either.

Re: Rear DVD Video going off and on

The wire harness is superglued to the headliner, so they have to order the entire thing as one part.

Re: Rear DVD Video going off and on

That lady was driving the Jeep all day when I was there, too. It was amazing how the hot lap drivers just kind of had a nice, relaxing conversation while they're throwing down the hard turns.

Just did the SRT experience at Raceway Park in NJ yesterday. It was absolutely worth the hour plus drive for me from PA. They had all kinds of new SRTs, and I loved getting to pound each one.

Re: Tow Mode

I don't know a max speed (the owners manual doesn't mention it), but it doesn't feel as punchy and the ride is much more comfortable in tow mode.

Re: Cross-Post from CTS-V board...hope Chryco is paying attention.

The front is too, I don't know, big or something. I don't like the grille. I think the jeep just blows it away looks-wise. Well, to each his own!

Re: Cross-Post from CTS-V board...hope Chryco is paying attention.

Really? People think the V is better looking than the Jeep? I think the V is fugly. Great performer, and I looked at the Vagon, but great looking? Not to me. At all.

Re: Evic pic thread

Can see that 4.2 was in track mode. Is it more "dangerous" to floor it without the traction control on?

Re: FYI - One available in NJ at $8,409 discount!

Unfortunately, the price hike will take a toll on sales after schmucks like us all bought ours. I think if they priced it closer to the other new SRT8s, there wouldn't be any around.

Re: Break-in period

Yep....it's in the manual, too. I think it was 500 miles....don't floor it in low gears, and try to cruise on the highway as much as possible.

Re: Warranty and Service Maintenance Plans

Pat,
I also have a couple of questions:
Is the WK2 SRT8 considered an "SC1" car? Willl you be selling lifetime maxcares for these vehicles?
