Hi everyone.

I am looking to replace my daily driver. Currently I own a 2002 WJ limited with the 4.7 V8. It has been a nightmare to own and a complete money pit. I bought it for 12k and have spent about 20k on it in the 2 years I have owned it. Its time for something else.

I'd like to know what these first gen SRT8s are like. Would they make a good daily driver? Are they reliable ? Are there any considerations I need to have. I am aware that you are unable to tow with them (well you can but the loads are so insignificant its not worth it) I don't use my WJ for towing so its not a factor.

A well maintained low mile will've just fine. Make sure all the maintenance has been performed...ie. tranny, transfer case axles etc. Make sure all recalls and tsb's as well. I would stay in the 09-10 years and maybe look at the much much improved 2012 model year.
