Aren't we all! :cool::cool: I just hope the price doesn't jump another $80k, although, I'm sure it would be worth it with the time invested and performance.

Now I wonder what S/C they will be adding. :rolleyes:
I recall seeing a photo of an Eaton S/C mounted on a free standing engine.

I'll see if I can find that photo somewhere.

Yes I remember that photo and Eaton being the discussion, but we all know how SRT is with surprises.

"- New: LED taillamps (Limited/Overland/SRT8)" Definitely glad to see that but I don't think it would warrant a trade in for a model with them :lol:

As for LED headlamps, I don't know why they just don't stick exclusively with HID. Though It will be interesting to see how bright they are.

I think it's been amended now to state LED DRLs and halogen/HID headlamps not actual LED headlamps.

You're preaching to the wrong person buddy! Talk to Bernie at cherokeesrt8.com!
Go there and see if you can type the word "jeepgarage" then come back and talk to me......
No one here copies other peoples hard work from the red site and posts it here. It's not ethical or legal.

It's sad that a huge company like Verticalscope:

is that threatened by a little not for profit site.

Big question now is when!!! There were a few subtle hints from Milous that the 2014 may be coming early. In another post he said the Diesels won't start priduction until Feb/March, and I don't see any info about the CRD for MY 2013. If this is the case then the 2014 should be available in April/May.
The 3.0 crd VM motor has been in production at the Detroit plant for quite a while already, but have just been sold overseas. The ZF 8 speed will now be added to the turbodiesel for 2013.

I'm also going to look at the 2013 Touareg R, coming stateside this fall. 4.2L 8 cylinder Audi turbo deisel, 380 hp and a monstrous 630 lb/ft torque, more than the previous 10 cyl. My cousin is a VW dealer, so can get one at his cost.

It was stated somewhere earlier in this thread that none of the 2013 models will have an 8 speed transmission. Maybe the CRD will come as a 2013 with the 5 speed. Even if you can get the Touareg R at dealer cost it will be a lot more than the Jeep....but then again they are a totally different class of vehicle. The Touareg TDI and Grand Cherokee CRD would be a more fair comparison.

right! The SRT 7" is not in the Ram. Have a look at the SRT Viper specs and pics for the SRT 7" screen.

I hope the SRT Jeep screen has the shift light like the Viper....LOL. I doubt it though since the SRt jeep is an auto box.

This is a little off topic, but does anyone know anything about the availability of the lifetime warranty on the CRD. That would make me much more likely to buy the jeep CRD. Without it I might have to go with the V6. The presence of a diesel engine with expensive parts imported from europe might be a turn off; especially considering the trouble a lot of other carmakers have been having with american diesel in their engines.
