2013 - "New 20" wheels for SRT" :popcorn: Can't wait to hear the "LOVE THEM" "HATE THEM" arguments on these. :rolleyes:

Any rumblings of the 6.2 Supercharged Apache engine?

Again..Thank you Milous for this info.

If I'm not mistaken the door handles and mirrors are already body color on the SRT.

you da man Milous! Seems like my plan is perfect... 2014-15 will be the perfect time to switch when it HOPEFULLY has the larger Nav screen and 8-speed tranny!!!!! I have no problem waiting with my WK till then ;)

Yeah, it appears that the 2012 SRT8 Jeep wheels might be a one year only version to set it apart from future years?
I happen to like the ones on mine, so I won't cry if a nicer version becomes standard in 2013.

it is nice to plan for the 8 speed tranny but am going to still like my 5 speed srt8. ( but in the case of lower fuel consumption then yea its gonna be better but in my case am happy with one gas tank for a whole week ! :eek:)


as for the new rims, i happen to like mine as well but even if the new ones came i wouldnt really think of changing them.

interior change?

hmmm i think im in love with the ones i have thank you

new colors? i chose mine for a reason :p

LED lights at the back?

well.. i dont think thats hard to implement :)

in general Milous your the best

Knee jerk reaction to the early dislike of the SRT Wheels by the SRT team. I think most owners now actually like them, only people who don't are the WK1 bashers who find anything about the WK2 to bitch about. IMO, they should stay with what they have on there.

dammit ... those who are waiting for the 8-speed tranny will be disappointed ...
I'm one of them that was waiting. Now the big decision...Get a 2012, wait for the 2013 to arrive, or hold off for the 2014 refresh...I can't decide!!

Anyone who waited, it's their own fault. You were told months ago the 8sp was coming for 2013 but most decided to side with the others who were wishing, rather than those who knew.

I haven't heard/seen anything yet that in 2014, although it will be in the WK lineup, that it will be specifically offered on the SRT.

Sorry, I guess I should of put "IS" waiting. I didn't buy one yet, that is what I am deciding (get 2012, get a new 2013, or wait for 2014 refresh). I can't make up my mind and my wife is ready to shoot me cuz it is all I talk about.

IMO, the best wheelset we've seen on the WK2 SRT8 thus far.

The supercharged 6.4 is absent from the list...

After finally driving one the only flaw in my mind is the absence of about another 70-90hp...with that - price justification and a real world performance alternative to ballpark priced non-US performance utes is a reality.

In my mind to be legitimately considered a player in the performance ute market you need to pour on the HP, just like Caddy did with the CTS-V. You cannot argue with HP - it will win everytime, when you pander your ute as a "performance based SUV"

Weight and HP - fine tune and build - and they will come.
